2nd Attempt at New LO

I was really stuck on this layout. I had a vision in my mind that just wasn't quite making it to the LO. SO I posted and showed it to my friend Barbara and she was able to give me some constructive criticism...Thanks for the helpful advice Barbara.....How is this one??

New Layout of the Boys

I was playing around with some pictures that were taken on Easter and came up with this Layout. It didn't turn out exactly as imagined, but I think it looks OK.

Say Cheese!

Seems simple to get three kids and a dog to be still for a photo, right?? If you answered yes to the previous question it is apparent that you have no kids and have never had contact with any either! LOL

We had a great time hunting Easter eggs today! The boys were so excited that it was difficult to get them to sit still for this pic, but I think it turned out really well!

21 Day Challenge - Day 12

I woke up early to get to the gym and do my "baby steps" class. I got there, walked on the treadmill to warm up, set up my step out on the aerobics floor and got ready. Then Lisa, the instructor got up there and announced "POWERSTEP" starting now. ARGH. I immediately said that I couldn't do it. Lisa encouraged me to stay and at least give it a try and surprisingly, I made it through the entire class (except the abs part) And I did at least do crunches while they were doing their complex ball routine. I am so proud of me!! Now I feel like I CAN do the powersteps. I wonder if I would have ever tried it otherwise?

21 Day Challenge - Day 11

Exhaustion has overtaken me. I stayed up way too late last night and fought dozing off all day long. SO I didn't go to the gym. I did however go walking with the kids to the park. (it is something). There is a baby steps class tomorrow morning at 9 that I would like to make it to. Surely I will be rested by then.

21 Day Challenge - Day 5-6

This weekend has been pretty good for the challenge. I did a workout tape last night in lieu of going to the gym, and I took today (Sunday) off. So this week I went to the gym or exercised a total of 6 times! (My goal was 5 times). The only problem I am having right now is my house is an absolute disaster area. When I leave school, then go to the gym, then feed the kids, and do my journal it is LATE. I didn't post yesterday so I could catch up a little. Anyway, maybe I will do better with that this week!
