Recent conversations between the littles:

While watching the Olympics opening ceremonies, particularly the beginning with the snowboarder:
I: When I grow up, I am gonna be a doctor.
O: When I grow up, I am going to be a snowboarder in the Olympics and carry the flag.

While talking about our upcoming trip to Fort Meyers Beach Florida:
O: We are going to see dolphins.
I: I am going to ride on a dolphin.
O: The dolphin won't like that Bella, it won't let you.
I: Yes, I be nice.  I say "Hi, I am Bella" and then he lets me ride on.
I: And I hold on really tight
O: But Isabelle, the dolphins go under the water, how are you going to breathe.
I: It is ok, I just do this: she puts her hands over her face.  I be fine

January 365

Last year I started a 365 project, taking a photo a day to document our lives over the course of a year. And even though I took photos almost each and every day, I gave up documenting and printing in February. I have no regrets and love to look back on those few weeks that did get documented. So, I have taken on the project again and hope that I get further this year. Here is a glimpse of our lives in January:

Tales from the Scales

As many of you know, I have been doing the Weight Watchers program for over a year now and have had my ups and downs. I have lost a total of 60.6lbs to date and am feeling very proud of this accomplishment. I will be reporting my Tales from the Scales on a monthly basis here for a few reasons - to keep myself on track, to share my excitement and frankly to show off new slimmer pictures.

I am almost half way to my goal...stay tuned for updates.
