My Kid with Character

There is my Kid With Character for her classroom for the month of January! Lilly is over the moon about being chosen for this award. Each month one child from each classroom is chosen for having acted best in accordance with the school's character pledge. The main focus this month was caring. I do have to say that she is one of the most caring people that I have ever met. I hope she never loses that part of her.
Finally a picture of me with my girls. I am always the one taking them. It is so nice to actually have one of me and them where I am not in the hospital having just given birth.

I am shaking here

It sounds silly but today I have started some on-line courses with the hopes of getting my certificate in dental assisting. After I registered a wave of nervousness flooded over me. For my first on line assignment I have to do some reading and take a quiz on what I read. I decided to print the pages out rather than try to read then there on the computer screen. I figured it would be much easier to read that way with the kids and all, ended up being 93 pages. I think I need to stock up on more ink and for sure paper. I ran out printing this lesson.

Wish me luck!

Mii on Wii

Well I have been doing the Wii Fit thing since the 2nd and today I was 1.5 pounds lighter. Woo hoo. I really hope that I can keep it up long enough to loose a few pounds. I also wish that the multi player games were counted in your work out profile thingy. I find it really funny that the one I have the most trouble with is the one where you have to sit on the board and be still.

Today the girls went back to school YEA! It was so nice to have some peace and quiet during the day, and able to get on the Wii without the kids bugging me to play too. I do have to say it was really nice to see all the moms from dance class. I missed sitting there and chatting. It seems like the last dance class was eons ago, I guess that is just the holiday season for you though. I am kind of getting excited since we usually find out what songs and the costumes this month. I still laugh at the fact that Madeline is responsible for the young girls ballet class. People were so impressed with her performance her performance last year. That after learning that she signed up for ballet again this year, (she was the only one in the class at one point) that 6 other girls, 4 are from her tap and jazz class, and two of her school friends joined up too. Last year was her first year of ballet and I so cannot wait to see how she does this year.

Dusted off my

Wii fit earlier. I purchased Wii Fit Plus this afternoon, thinking new year might as well try a little working out. It has been ages since I last used it and I was shocked that my old info was still saved. Even happier to learn that I was 8.8 pounds lighter since the last time I used it. I had forgotten how much fun it is Madeline and I had a blast playing with it this afternoon I really love the multiplayer games on it. Boy were my arms tired after that chicken game. I am going to try to use it at least a couple times a week. So add that to my one other New Years resolution. Look I'm making good on that one at least!

New Year off to a good start

Well day one has been a wonderful one!

Did some cupboard rearranging with all the new kitchen goodies that I recieved for Christms I had no other choice really. Now I just have to remember that I did that, a couple of times already I have gone into the wrong one. I ran to Target got a new home phone, our battery kept dying on the old one. Madeline recieved some money for Christmas that was burning a hole in her pocket and she wanted to pick out her present. I picked up a game for us that I have become obsessed with. It is called Find It. And yes obsessed is the right word, I am on a mission to find that friggin penny.

I spent a good portion of the afternoon and evening at my mom's with the girls. I bought us all some Chinese food for dinner, the girls played with Auntie Kaylea for awhile. Then my mom, Glenn, Kaylea and I played Scattergories, (I totally kicked ass and won every round) and Taboo. Ed was at the hockey game with his brother. It was a real good time. I can't wait to do it again.
