50 +

Here are a couple more pictures I took myself the end of Jan. I've lost another 5 lbs or so since then.

I started the South Beach Diet in Mid June last year. 9 months later I am down 53 lbs!! The first week was torture, but since then it really hasn't been that hard. I've had results I couldn't even imagine. I still hope to lose another 20-25 lbs! But this is a MAJOR milestone on my journey!! This is a picture taken last month, just for fun!

Ry and I joined the gym a year ago this month. This is a picture of me just after my BIG haircut 1 year ago.

It's time

For some fun new pictures! Ryan has some free online games that he is ADDICTED to right now so I don't get much computer time anymore! Only if I have a day off and he is working and I don't have a million and one other things I have to do! :) So here we go!

Sammy had to do a book report for her 3rd grade class. She got a list of like 200 different ideas of fun ways to present a book report. We decided to make a collage/poster that went with her book. It turned out pretty cute.

I was going to use hot rollers for my hair for church one Sunday and Sammy wanted to try them. She kinda looks like a little old lady. Her hair is so straight though, within an hour you couldn't even tell she'd used them!

Ryan's big 30th birthday was on Feb. 21st. It is also his mom's birthday so we had a big party at Pirate Island pizza with 25 or so people. It was lots of fun. We had a big cake and put enough candles on for both of them (I forgot my camera and I'm still trying to get my niece to send me a picture). We also had lots of black balloons. He got lots of cards but not really any exciting presents. This is him playing with one of his little dollar nerf disc guns! I figured he could have some fun with it and he did! With the card I got him he had to take the "Old Guy Oath" it's funny! I have video of him reading it that I'll have to post someday, if I can ever figure out how to get video from my camera to here! :)

Two nights a week we tend a neighbors two little kids for an hour or two. Andrew and Charity are the same age and have so much fun playing together. They love to sit in our oversized rockers and they both fit so nicely. I love this one! She kept trying to lean back on him and he kept pushing her away and trying to get away from her.

She loves to attack him. She's got him just where she wants him!! haha :)
