Our Christmas was a crazy one! We drove to my sister-in-law's house on Christmas eve. We played poker (I came in second!) and were Santa's little helpers putting together a kitchen set for Abbey. We stayed up far to late and were woken up by anxious children far too early. It was fun though. Erin was very excited to open her Game Cube. She had no idea that we had gotten it for her. In fact, I had done everything I could to convince her of the contrary. We spent most of Christmas day with Laurie and Abbey. Dan had to leave because his grandmother is very ill and his mom couldn't take care of her alone. It was too much of a reminder of Pam.
We spend the evening at my brother-in-law's house. The kids opened their presents from us and Erin opened her presents from that side of the family. It was fairly uneventful. We didn't get home until midnight. I was and still am tired from the trip. I think that has to do with the fact that I've been sick for the past week. I am feeling 100% better now. I'm even starting to form thoughts about a re-vamped workout/eating plan. Laurie wants to start losing weight as soon as she has the baby so we've made a little bit of a plan together. David also wants to lose some weight so we will all start together. I really have to get back on track. I haven't gained any weight, but I have lost muscle. I'm looking into buying an elliptical trainer. David bought me an mp3 player for Christmas so I have my motivational music loaded and ready to go.

Hi Ho Hi Ho it's off to work I go!

i am a real believer in the ellpitical trainer... it is the only thing I could do when I was heavily pregnant, and even then it didn't strain me.
