Recorded Nutrition/Weight Loss Meeting

Superman records all of the LIVE meetings we present each week so that members of our group can watch it when their schedule allows. Many of them log on and watch it LIVE, others will actually join us in our living room to participate.

Last week, the topic was a review...but it ended up being much more than that. We've decided to share it not just with our members but with anyone who might benefit from it...which pretty much is everyone.

Keep in mind that I'm speaking to a group of people that you might not hear talk back to me. Click Here to watch the presentation in Windows Media Player.

Enjoy your day -Wonderwoman

Meal Plan Monday 12-15-08

Today we did a cute little craft I read about over at this blog. We've made play dough like this before, but this is the first time we made ornaments out of it. All of us made an ornament for the tree. It was a lot of fun. I think I'll invite a few of Little T.'s friends over Friday night and make them as a group.
After dinner tonight we played a game of Spill and Spell. This is one of my favorite games, probably because it's the only one I can actually win. While we were playing, the firetruck sirens were driving the dogs crazy.

We realized that tonight was the night that the volunteer firemen dress up like Santa and the Elves to deliver gifts and candy to the children in town. We live in a pretty small town. They stop in front of each house and wait for the kids to come out.

I ran outside to take photos of the fire trucks and this John Deere tractor all decorated and looking festive. Little T. has always known there is no Santa, we taught her to enjoy it as any other fairy tale. Our Christmas emphasis is on Christ. (Christ - mas: with Christ.)

It's still fun for her to run outside and wave and greet these guys! However, it took me about three clicks of my camera to realize that I was standing on our front lawn alone! All of a sudden we're shy?!

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear? Santa all decked out and a bunch of volunteers! This nice guy gave Little T. a cute teddy bear (tax dollars at work) and both of us a candy cane.
