Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everybody has a wonderful day with their friends and family. I am off to my mom's house to help her because her back went out. I only hope I can make the meal as good as she does!

Christmas Cookies

Every Christmas season I gain a few pounds. I vow to take it off by summer and never do. I have gained about 20 extra pounds this way over the years. I decided that this season I will not gain one single pound. Instead I am going to lose a couple of pounds so I can eat all the Christmas cookies I want. My mom makes the most delicious cookies in many varieties and I want to enjoy them without feeling guilty. I am exercising an extra 10 minutes a day and I cut butter, margarine, and mayonnaise out of my diet. I will let you know how it goes!

Veteran's Day

George Bush echoed my sentiments exactly when he said: "We must remember that many who served in our military never lived to be called veterans. We must remember many had their lives changed forever by experiences or the injuries of combat. All veterans are examples of service and citizenship for every American to remember and to follow." -- President George W. Bush, Oct. 30, 2001

Halloween Photos!

My little granddaughter was a tiger and my grandson was a dragon. Aren't they just so precious?
