What a fun day!

What a wonderful Saturday! First of all, I wasn't working or teaching today, so that was a very welcome break. Went to my WW meeting this morning for the 16th week and got my clapping hands - "Stay and Succeed". I was a little unsure of my weigh in as I'd had a little more in the carb dept this week, but tracked everything and was very happily down another 1.6lbs (42.8 total now).  A very good start to the day!

I stopped at Starbucks for my coffee and breakfast sandwich before heading home. Got Kyle ready for karate and went there before running errands with Nathan. Came home for a quick bite and then headed out for some fun for me.

Instead of teaching today, I was taking a Christmas card class from one of my fellow teachers, Alexis, and had a great time! It was fun to be on the playing end rather than the teaching side for a change.  Thanks Alexis!  Was also supposed to go for coffee before that with a friend, but her DH got called to work unfortunately (so no one to watch the kids - another time!).

Came home and got all my guys and we headed out to iHop for dinner.  Stopped at the new "super" Walmart near here to check out the craziness and it sure was busy.  I stood in line and got a couple of things while the boys got an ice cream.  Kyle was halfway through his when he said his other top front tooth had fallen out!!  Exciting!  Guess the Tooth Fairy will be making a stop here tonight! 

We've rented movies, so the boys are watching Toy Story 3 right now and George and I are going to watch Robin Hood later. I also got Predator for him, but so not interested in that! Think I'll go watch some of the Canucks game right now too!

Great day all the way around!

Hope everyone else enjoyed their Saturday!
