Weigh in #10

How excited am I to say that I am down 1 lb this week! Every little bit adds up, I am excited to say I am down now a total of 11.2 lbs. I felt that I had not done so well this week with weight watchers, so boy was I excited when I saw her write down that I was down a pound. :)

What a Day!

Today is a day for our nation to come together. God has guided us to where we are today, and will continue to guide us. We need to stand behind our new president Obama. I am very excited to sit here at my desk today at work and be able to watch the inauguration online at It something that is very exciting, and it only comes around every four years. I will have to admit this will be the first one that I can actully remember watching. I told our oldest son Devon this was a day that we should support our new president, even if he was not the one we wanted to win. As I told Devon this is a part of history that he can actully say he can remember sitting and watching it on television. I can see him now, his great grandkids talking about this day. Devon will be able to say I remember that day, I was nine years old.
We need to support President Obama with prayers, he will not have a easy job by no means. President Obama will take on more than we will ever imagine.

Congratulations President Obama, may God guide you over the next four years!

Weight In #9

This past Thursday night was another great week at Weight Watchers, I am happy to report that I am down another 1.2 lbs. My total weight loss to date is 10.2lbs.
I am already down a pant size, and can't wait to go down a few more. The way I see it, in time it will all come off. I can and will do this, it just takes time!

Devon's New Toy

Boy was Devon very surprised yesterday when his dad came by work picked me up and we went to the bank. Then started on our way to a special place. Devon kept asking where are we going? We would not tell him, we told him we had to go take a quick trip somewhere and he would know when we got there. It just about killed Devon to have to wait and see where we were going.
We arrived at the HONDA shop just out side of town. Devon still had no idea, he told me later he thought that we were there to get Dad something for his four wheeler. Devon told us he had to go to the bathroom, so he goes on and comes back out.

Brad said to him so sit on this dirt bike and see if you like it and see how it feels. His eyes got super big and grins and get on it. He sits there and Brad said do you like it he says yes, Brad tells him well good because it's yours. He was so happy and excited! I wish that I would have had my camera to take a picture of him, it was priceless. Devon had been asking for a dirt bike since Christmas 2006. We wanted to let him grow a little, plus give us time to get some money together and so when Brad found this it was a deal that would could not pass up. We hope that Devon will enjoy this as much as we have enjoyed seeing his face light up getting it.

My Little One is Growing Up!

It's hard to believe that Chandler will soon be six months old. Boy how time flies by when you are having fun! It seems like yesterday calling Brad because I had just took the test and it was positive. We had been waiting for a gift from God for some time then, and boy what a blessing he has been.
The pregnancy was easy, not as easy as my first, but I would say easy. Looking back it seems like it took forever to go from 5 weeks to 20 weeks, then after 20 weeks it flew by. Since Chandler was born it really has flown by, my BFF Jen keeps Chandler for us. Jen is such a Godsend to our family, not just by keeping Chandler but just by being there anytime I need her. Today Jen sent me a IM saying that Chandler had rolled from this back to his stomach. Brad and I were just talking about this yesterday. Chandler does very well from his stomach to back, but had not attempted it the other way around. We could tell it would be any day now and today was the day. I am so excited he is learning new things, but then again I am saddened by the thoughts of it. It want be long he will be crawling, he is already sitting up for about 10 sec. by himself. It want be long that my baby will no long be a baby.
