Wyatt's team lost their first game yesterday. He did well, though, making 2 baskets and playing great defense. It was a very low scoring game. He played 5 out of the 6 "quarters" and was worn out. I have not been good at getting a pic of him shooting a basket. I get too excited when he gets the ball and just have to watch. In this pic they are just getting ready to start a quarter.

The 3-4 inches of snow we had Saturday night. The kids were so excited.
Lily and Wyatt in their Colts gear. Lily has been wanting a jersey and Jeff told her if they won he would get her one. So, true to his promise, he braved the crowds at Dick's Sporting Goods Monday and got her one. He also picked up an AFC Champions shirt for Wyatt. He said it was worse than Christmas in there! She proudly wore it to school today and informed me that she is wearing it everyday next week.

Well, Jeff and I both made it through our juice fasting day. It really wasn't bad at all. I lost 3 pounds for a total of 7 after 8 days of the 11 day program. Not too bad and at least a start.

Well, I think it's working! The diet, that is. I got on the scale this morning and have lost 6 pounds! Yay! And we have only been doing this for 3 days! The good news is we have been eating very well and not starving ourselves. It's just the combination of foods, I guess. And we haven't even done the juice fast day yet, which is where you are supposed to lose the most weight. Off to work now--more later.

Wyatt had his first basketball game of the season today. We were SO proud of him!! He made 3 baskets--once dribbling the ball all the way down the court and making the shot! It was awesome and a HUGE confidence builder for him! I think this Upward league is going to be so great for him. They make sure that all of the boys play a certain amount of time in each game and really focus on teamwork.
Boo Hoo!! Lily's great friend Liea is moving to China on Monday and her going away party was tonight. Lily was so sad. She will be gone for at least 1 year and a half and possibly even 2 1/2. She is Lily's 4th really good friend to move away since we have lived here. I hate it every time. At least she will be back, but it will be a while.
Here they are giving each other one last hug. Lily will miss her so much.
After we went to say goodbye to the Szabo family, we went to dinner and to do our big grocery shop. It has become our new thing to go all together on a weekend night to the nice new Kroger to do our big shop. I found this new diet we are trying and had to find lots of new and different ingredients. It's called The Fast Track Detox Diet.
I'm not one for fad diets, but this one seemed very sensible to me and is really just lean meats and veggies along with a day of juice fasting to detox your body. Jeff is doing it with me too. We'll see how it goes. I'll tell you, healthy food definitely costs more!! I had to get several of the items in the health food section. I'm looking forward to trying it. I think we will feel so much better.
I'll let you know how it goes!

This is at Zehnder's restaurant. They had some really unique decorations.
This is a view from our balcony of the covered bridge you have to cross to get to the hotel.
The hotel has a full size mini golf course inside--it was a really nice one, too with waterfalls and hills.
Wyatt loves mini golf.
Jeff was bragging about being the Whack-a-Mole champ with the game high score----that is til I came along and beat it--ha!
They had 2 pool tables--and Wyatt loved playing. I would love to have one in our basement. I forgot how much fun it is!
On our balcony-the view of the town and water was great!
Lily at one of the pools.
They had a play area-Lily liked the slide because it was super fast!
Munching her many tickets. We found a game that spit out at least 50 each time!

Well-really didn't want this pic to end up first. Oh, well. My mom got Lily these Only Hearts Club dolls for Christmas and she loves them. I think they are probably her favorite thing she got all together. Here she has them all tucked in for the night with their pets, etc.
Lily in her new U.K. pj's. They say Kentucky Girl.
Lily with Jeff's mom----her Mimi.
I got Wyatt to get in on a picture with her too.
Wyatt and Lily with their Great Grandmother, Jeff's Granny. She is 87 years old and still going strong!
My mom gave Wyatt Hot Pockets. He thought it was hilarious!
Playing with their new stuff.
Wyatt and Lily with their cousins Max and Ellie.
Lily and Ellie.
Steve playing Uno with Lily. Wyatt is , of course, playing with his DS.
Lily has become an expert wrapper. She actually wrapped all the extended family gifts this year and she does an excellent job. It's SO nice to have help with that job!
My mom's usual mountain of gifts.
