I hate dieting....
Before we talk about dieting, let's address these adorable children in their Halloween costumes. I had been planning for months to make Jonas a garden gnome since he has those adorable huge blue eyes and impish grin. So I made a quick mock-up of his hat and beard and quickly learned that no 9 month old is going to keep that kind of a thing on their head for a full 30 seconds... so Jonas was a pumpkin.
Max had his influence on his costume too. We dressed him up as a Newsie (we MUST be old, none of the youth in the ward have any clue about that classic movie). As we were heading out the door, Max decided he wanted to wear his Bob the Builder tool belt and hat, so he went as Bob Villa (or the guy from This Old House, they might be the same person... I don't know).
I know I'm their mother, but they are adorable!
Now, as to dieting... my weight has been fluctuating since we got here. That is if you can only fluctuate up. It hasn't been a LOT, but I hate feeling like it is not under control. So, I joined the throngs of Tanners currently doing Weight Watchers last Saturday. Self control and I are kind of strangers (at least when chocolate is involved) so this week has felt long as we get acquainted. I hope this works as well for me as it has my extended family- they are looking great! Wish me luck guys!
