Sweethearts Dance

Jalyssa went to the Sweethearts Dance with Zach Stone, they had an incredible time. They went with some crazy friends and spent the whole day dating and preparing for the dance that night. But the whole thing could not of come together without the help of good friends and family. We had help with every little thing, like picking the ribbon for her dress, to a friend cooking their yummy meal, and another friend doing Jalyssa's hair so beautiful. We also could not of done it with our Grandma D's help, she took over when Mom and Dad had to leave town. Everything turned out perfect, but like I said we could of never done it without everyone's help. So we say a BIG THANK YOU to all! They made a really cute couple and had a wonderful time.

I still can not believe that Jalyssa is a senior and ready to go off to college. It is really killing me. She is an incredible Young Woman and so much of life ahead. I am so happy that she gets to have these wonderful experiences and spend time with good friends. Sometimes people think that life ends when they graduate High School, but truly it is just beginning. Here's to a bright future Jalyssa, I love you!!

Another New Addiction...

I now have a new favorite hobby, it is good and bad. My dear friend Melinda and her Husband got a WII for Christmas and a WII fit for Valentines, this has been my downfall. We have a standing invitation to come play anytime. The reason this is good is because it is free entertainment and it is really fun. The reason it is bad is because it is free entertainment and really fun. I love playing the Wii and challenging the family at tennis matches and bowling and cow racing. (which I am horrible) The Wii fit is a whole other thing... When they introduced us to the Wii fit, it became my enemy. It is really hard. With aerobics and weight training and hula hooping. And a fitness test that weighs you and gives you an age dependent upon your stamina and strength. This computer has a lot of nerve. Now really... what business does a computer game have telling me I am obese. How dare it! It even plumped up my Mii, (You're not alone Holly) It has the audacity to give me exercise tips and weight loss suggestions. It is a love/hate relationship. All my friends who we play with, are all in the same position, so at least we are all harassed together. We have decided to do a biggest loser kind of thing. To check in once a week and do the fitness test and see if we are in any better shape than the week before. Or at least come out younger. So I am determined to get in better shape, just to show the dumb computer game.. what is what! Like I said it is a love/hate relationship.
