We opened presents with my parents that night and my Dad splurged on Lily and spoiled her rotten. He bought her the doll house of her dreams! Here she is opening it. I wish I could have gotten a picture of her face when she realized the gigantic present was for her! She was so excited. She absolutely loves her doll house.
On Christmas morning I made Banana Quinoa Waffles for breakfast, just about my favorite waffles in the world. They are pretty healthy since they are made with whole wheat, bananas and quinoa! Of course once you take into account the syrup and the whipped cream......... well, go light on the syrup and the points plus value goes down. I can get 12 waffles out of one batch and that makes each waffle 3 points plus each. I don't have a picture, and I will post the recipe next time I make them.
We bought Lily a bike for Christmas (bike riding lessons post is coming soon) and she absolutely loved that and the red wagon too. Here she is at the stockings, she had a blast opening her stocking, she was so excited. It was a lot of fun this year seeing her reaction. It is the first time we have had a kid who is old enough to really know what is going on and get into the mood.

Today I just ate poorly. I was craving all sorts of junk food and I gave into my cravings and I am now paying the price for it. You would think I would eventually learn from the past and not feed myself junk food. Everytime I do I get really sick, and tonight is no exception. My stomach HURTS! Hopefully I will not be up puking half the night. *sigh* the lessons we learn. Well, tomorrow I am picking up all the junk in the house and either tossing it or putting it away where I won't reach for it and grab it. Tomorrow I am back on track, it only took me a sick stomach to hit reality. Hopefully I am not up on the scale again tomorrow, but I did get a lot of exercise in today with the kids and we went to a Zumba Master Class tonight and I am beat!
