Wishing You a Happy Holiday!

Thought I’d check in really fast and wish  you all a happy holiday. Our Christmas was pretty nontraditional and very low key. Typically we have a traditional Christmas Eve dinner at home with family. . . we did have a family dinner this year, but it was at a restaurant (no cooking, no dishes—a win for everybody!). Christmas Day we hung around all day in PJs and sweats (hence, no photos). . . Christmas dinner was frozen pizza and green salad. Can you get less traditional? But again, low key, no prep. A win!

We’re anticipating the rest of the holidays to be equally unplanned, low key, and enjoyable. We’re working on on some photo albums, catching a few movies, and just taking it easy. Basically we’re in denial—we know the first of the year is coming all too quickly, and then it will be time to get serious about eating healthy and exercising, preparing for Leadership, and getting back to work again.

But for now, a few more days of the holidays. . .

I hope your Christmas was enjoyable and that the rest of your holidays are full of fun, love, peace, and joy!

Sounds wonderful! I believe wet should make more memories and make less work. Enjoy the rest of the year!

I love breaking tradition when it means less stress and more time with the ones we love. Enjoy the rest of the holidays. Wishing you and yours a healthy and happy 2014!

Our Christmas meal tradition for years has been Pizza. Nice and easy and Mom (me) doesn't have to spend hours in the kitchen. Have a great new year.

My Mom was sick so our Christmas was a bit less traditional we had 4 men and 4 women in the kitchen finishing up the Turkey mom started and was too dizzy to finish. It was really comical because every one was trying to help and her kitchen in so small but we all finished in record time with all the side dishes done and both a turkey and ham carved to perfection. Everyone exhausted and appreciating what mom goes through every holiday! Hooray for all you cooks out there. Sure was nice to see everyone pitching in together even though the quarters were a little cramped. Smile...
Hope you are on the mend can't wait to see you

Sounds Good to me Shelli! We did our family Dinner on the 23rd (other family members for my kids to see at Christmas, so we moved our dinner earlier in the week) Sit done dinner of the usual Ham and fixings, but very casual. Played board games after, sat around and talked, hugged, grand kids and cuddled on the sofa with i-pads, and just took it easy. Christmas Eve and Day were munching left-overs and watching movies with those still here. I like a low stress Holiday! And You Deserve those too! Hope to see you in Houston!

Good looking family. Looks like you had a great holiday.
How can I email you directly? I have discovered several demonstrators, including myself, that are having a lot of issues with DBWS and getting little to no help. I can't help but wonder if you are in the know. Would love to go into more detail in private.
