Weigh In and House Pics

Good morning and Happy Monday to one and all!  Today is Weigh Day and no, I haven't hit Onederland.  I am sitting on exactly 200.0 lbs.  I'm OK with this because it's still a 1.5 lb loss from last week so the scale is still heading the right direction so I'll take what I can get.  Hoping I can post that Onederland post next Monday. 

In a better place today than I was last week.  First, my mother called and apologized.  While it didn't make me feel as better as I thought it would right away...I'm definitely feeling better about the whole situation at this point. 

I also took on Linda's challenge.  I spent the weekend decorating my house for Christmas.  Even my hubby helped and he usually doesn't.  The whole family got involved (which is why most of the ornaments are towards the bottom of the tree. LOL) and the girls are really excited about Christmas now.  The yard isn't quite done.  I have an inflatable Santa, some more yard stake type items and a sign on their way so then I'll be officially done.  What kind of fun did everyone else participate in this weekend?

Here are some pics.  Enjoy!  And have a fabulous week!

There are bushes to the left that have lights too but a
neighborhood cat keeps unplugging them!

That's our Charlie Brown Christmas Tree next to a very small, cheap
nativity.  I'd love to buy a better one but finances haven't permitted yet.  Both
to remind me of the true meaning of Christmas

The smaller stockings that are attached to the girls' are for their
 "babies" (their favorite stuffed animals)

I am so glad you're feeling better, and the house looks absolutely magical!! I love the decorations -inside AND out - sooo beautiful!!

I especially love the charlie brown tree next to the manger, what a beautiful thought about Christmas! Thank you for sharing that!!

And, one more thing - I have that exact same "clock/candle holder"!!

I need to get some pics up. I attended a Christmas party of a fellow blogger, Read, from My Trek Downward. My hubby and I had a great time. Sunday night wasn't so fun because we had to watch the Ravens football team lose to Pittsburgh. Blah!

Your house looks great! Good job on the weight loss!

When I hit Onderland I weighed 199.8. So I stepped off to grab my camera and when I got back on it said 200.0. I had to step off and on about 10 times before it said 199.8 again. Silly scale! I predict you'll be in Onderland tomorrow or Wednesday!

Do you like hot chocolate? I took a package of carnation chocolate, a scoop of click and 12 oz of milk and a drop of peppermint mocha coffeemate and blended it with my $9 handblender. It was lovely. 27 g of protein. A little more then they suggest in a serving but I figure better more then less!

I LOVE the pictures - thank you for posting them. I have to get one of those Charlie brown trees!
I hope you see 199 tomorrow!
