Making April All About ME!

Well, I need some encouragement! I am going to attempt to get some exercise and hopefully drop a few pounds in April. I need a kick-start in yet another get-in-shape attempt.

I am going to be counting my points (weight watchers) and I am contemplating registering in Club Fit Boot Camp. The Boot Camp is 2 mornings a week for 6 weeks of all outdoor workouts. I need to try something different because I refuse to join a gym (hate it) or commit to walking in the evenings. I really don't like working out by myself. If I had a dedicated work-out partner I would entertain the idea of going to the gym but I despise going alone. I need a group activity to get me motivated. I still miss high school sports! I think I should be able to commit to 6 weeks. I would just like my clothes to fit better....I have no other lofty goals.

Keeping the Toothfairy Busy!

In the last 2 weeks Carter has lost his two top teeth. For a couple of days he was down just one on top and he honestly looked hideous! The one tooth left was hanging on and it was grayish in color because the root had detached. I could barely look at him! Joel told him his cute days were behind him. Now that they are both out I think he looks adorable but his adult teeth will most certainly come in much too big for his mouth and he'll go through that awkward looking stage all boys go through.

Luca's 3rd Birthday

Luca's 3rd birthday was this past Sunday and he was so happy it was HIS day to celebrate with his friends! We've been to a number of birthday parties and he had a hard time waiting for his own. He wanted a Ninja Turtles party so...that is what he got!

I must say I was very happy with how the cake turned out.

I cut pieces of fabric for Ninja headbands and the kids basically ran around and played. It was fun and exhausting. But a good time was had by all!

The party wrapped up around 4:45pm and by 5:00pm Luca was running around with his Ninja headband and nothing else on. That boy does not enjoy being dressed!

Family Day Walk in the Forest

We went out and about on Family Day (Feb 18) and told Luca we were going to go for a walk in the Diego Forest. He was disappointed we didn't spot any polar bears, penguins or the Bo Bo Brothers (they are monkeys for those not in the loop).

Time to Play Catch Up

I figured out why I am having such a hard time keeping up with my blog! Since I can no longer access "blogs" and other "networking sites" at work I can't find the time oro the desire at home in the evenings. I have time to procrastinate at work but not at home! I will try harder.

Anyway, as usual we are keeping busy and anxiously awaiting Spring! We have had enough weekends of this:

OK...there is never enough of that.
