I started consistently riding my exercise bike. It is helping me to lose those extra pounds. As much as I hate to admit it - exercise does work and make you feel better. Okay Lord, I get it. LOL
Looking forward to the New Year. I love fresh starts. I went through my desk at work and did a spring cleaning of sorts. Oh how nice it is.
This year my new years resolution is to "watch my tongue" Yes easier said than done sadly. I don't want anything unpleasing to the Lord to come out of my mouth. Probably could do a lot better if I gave up my drivers license. hah
I want to honor God in my words and deeds this new year. I desire to delight His heart in this way. I know it will make me a better wife, employee, daughter, friend, and certainly will improve my walk.
I will commit to pray each morning before my feet hit the floor, Lord please put a guard over my mouth this day. AMEN

I am so blessed. We had a lovely dinner at my Aunt's house. Two much food of course. hah My cousin is the cook and she does a great job.
Of course we know the best gift of all this day is JESUS.
God coming to earth. Emanual. God is with us.
P.S. hoping to be able to post more photo's soon. Having some frustrating problems with my new camara. My gosh the batteries don't last at all ? Now it won't load to my computer. I am going to buy a cardreader because they say it will save the battery. We'll see.
Oh for the days of my little throw away camara. hah

Having a relaxing Sunday. I like those. Went to church. I love each week when we light the Advent candle as Christmas grows closer. We sang all Christmas carole's this week and it was great. Did some grocery shopping and picked up a gift for my hubby. But other then that it has been relax, computer, tv and fun. I did spend extra time outside with Solomon. Living in an apartment and not having a fenced in yard I think he sometimes gets cabin fever. Poor guy. So I took him for a longer walk and sat out on our front porch steps. This is one of his favorite things. He watches the cars go bye and just eats it up. Also it is Mom's attention 100%, I'm sure that makes it even more fun. Brought him in and played a little ball with him. Being 12 1/2 years old he runs after the ball about 4 times then it is OVER. hah Now he is dead asleep in his bed. Wonder if any good movies are on Lifetime tonight? I just love some of these corney cheesey Christmas Lifetime movies. My favorite is Three Days with Kristen Davis.

We headed off to dinner. Our favorite Mexican restaurant Janita's. Just love those Faitias and the black bean soup wow! After dinner we went out to our car it was once again raining. No more snow . . . :(
After seeing the movie, I just want to count my blessings even more . . .
thank you Lord <><

I like country decorations and old tin ornaments. The sign at the top reads: COUNTRY CHRISTMAS We laugh because I live in a very busy NJ right on a highway but I decorate like I live out in the country somewhere. Hey a girl can dream right !
I love the village. After Christmas I buy one new house and a few of the people each year. I especially love the little people making snow angels on the right side.
The reindeer behind the tree on the bottom right was my grandmothers. We always had this out under the tree every Christmas. It is very, very old. I love it.
