As many of you know, my husband has a problem... he drinks WAYYYY to much soda.. his favorites include Diet Coke and Pepsi Max. I mean it has gotten to the point now that he is actually grumpy if he doesn't have like 8 cans a day! So, he promised me (and himself) that beginning tomorrow 1/1/11.. he will completely stop the bad habit.. not one sip.. nothing! haha, I know he CAN do it, I just don't think he will do it, therefore we have a small bet going on. If he even takes one sip of soda in the first month, soda of any kind, I get to spend $100 on anything I want :) Although I want him to succeed, I really want these new shoes... haha, I'll let you know how it goes!

Christmas for Fae

little Fae didn't get much for Christmas this year, (and I also figured she was too young to really want anything besides some new bottles and formula anyway haha)but neither did we... I decided to take a "rain check" so I could buy some new clothes after I loose the baby weight..which by the way is coming off nicely :) I hope I make my goal!!! and Jarom couldn't think of anything he wanted either so... I got him a couple new pieces of clothing, and boots. I think he wants to buy a knife or something so we will probably do that sometime soon. But anyway, we had a great time over at Jarom's parents house, they always have such a beautifully decorated house and wonderful food! This year we had prime rib, lobster, and potatoes.. it was SO good! They are always so thoughtful and generous when it comes to gift giving, and got us some new luggage,, which we DESPERATELY needed, new sheets and some food storage! We love everything!

Anyway, here is little Fae Christmas morning, she must have been so excited for Santa that she woke up at like 6 but then fell back to sleep a few hours later haha...

Either way, we had a great christmas, and hope you all did too!!

It was so awesome to be a little family this year for christmas... Fae is such a joy in our lives, she challenges us and teaches us so many things!! (especially patience) we love her more than words can even say, shes so beautiful and sweet and happy! We are so lucky to have such a perfect, sweet, cute little girl!!

Toga Fae

I tried wrapping her up like a Greek goddess... she is SO CUTE! but she wouldn't smile, so I'm not really sure if she liked it or not.. nevertheless here's Toga Fae:

On another note, here are some other cute pictures:

This is sleepy Fae

This is over-alls Fae.. but really its just her pretty smile while shes playing with her little animal friends :)

And this is Snowman Fae haha... we didn't build it, but it was nice one day last week so we went for a walk, and my mom INSISTED we get a picture of her with the snowman.. but I refused to take her out of her car seat.

This is Fae after her bath and not liking being naked and cold, but mommy loving every second of it :)

And Lastly this is daddy and Fae.. she just loves him!!

The race is on...

Ok, it's not really a race if the only competitor is myself.. but it kinda is because I want to do it before we leave for NY on January 13th. Some people say it can't be done, but I am telling you, I've done it before, and I'll do it again.. so here goes...

I am going to turn this: (no, I will not show you my flabby stomach, however I will wear an extremely tight tank-top so you can see what I'm working with)

Into this:

How many days do I have to do this? 40 days starting today.

Goal weight: 105 lbs.
Current weight: 120lbs

This is what we fight about:

Every night while I'm up with Fae.. well more like 4 in the morning when I wake her up to eat, I turn the heat up.. because the night before jarom has turned it down. He claims he is "way too hot to sleep" even though I have the heat at 70. He turns it back down to 65, and thinks I wont notice, but here he is, caught red handed..

And this:

Is what he did.
