Subject: RE: Fall into Winter Declutter & Fitness 2013
First things first, I lost 5.2 pounds this week!!! :)

Today I am wrapping gifts (since I never did get anything wrapped) and making goodies for our Christmas gathering. I am in charge of the shrimp and cocktail sauce, spinach dip and bread (making homemade), garlic ring bologna, 2 kinds of cheese balls and fruit dip. There will also be a fruit tray, a cheese tray, sandwich fixings, veggies, crackers, breads and rolls and maybe some cookies. All finger foods and no big sit down dinner which was at my request. For us, Christmas will include a 3 year old and a 91 year old....neither who are interested in the big traditional sit down dinner so I suggested just having things to nibble on. It's much less work for those of us who are cooking as need to overheat the house with the oven, no huge mountains of dishes to do...just a nice time to sit and relax with the people I love most.

How about you? How will you celebrate? Do you make a special meal or have any special family traditions?

Jeremiah will be given one present tonight which will be a box with a new set of Christmas jammies, a movie (Cars for him) and a little snack to go with his popcorn as we settle in by the fire and Christmas tree.

I am sooo looking forward to tomorrow and watching Jeremiah.

Merry Christmas Everybody!

Much Love and Happiness to you all!
