Tattletale Thursday - late

I know it is not Thursday, but I had been locked out of my blogger for almost 2 weeks. I promise that this pic was taken on thursday morning.

I am down 1.2 pounds! Pretty good!

Now to tattletale on myself......hmmmm, I was actually really good this week. I joined a weight loss challenge that my wonderful friend Colleen has been encouraging me to go to. They basically show you how to eat better! So I was really watching my foods this week. It will be interesting to see what my loss is when I weigh in at that challenge. They meet every monday night. When I weighed in on the first night - after dinner, with clothes on - I was 201.

Monday will be interesting!!

Play Hard

There are many times that while I am reading my friend Lee's blog, I have a smile on my face when I see pictures of her boys playing in their sports - and yes, sometimes a shudder when I see a photo of one of them playing really hard - like being at the bottom of a rugby pile on! Yikes.

Well, I got to experience a shudder myself.

Daddy had this brilliant idea (note the sarcasm) of building Jonah a ramp for him to do jumps on with his bike. Yes, I know we did things like this, but now that I see Jonah doing it......sigh.....

Jonah went for a bike ride with his friend - the Dad's tagged along. Apparently Jonah decided to try a bigger jump in the greenspace near our house.


On his bike.

Over the handle bars he goes....

And yes, that is dirt in the corner of his mouth!

Why does he look so proud? LOL.

Help me Lee!

My family

Getting to know my camera Daphne will be a fun adventure. The best way to get to know her? Taking pictures of my favourite subjects - my family!

This is a picture of "my boys" - a term I often use. Many think I have more than one child. Jonah is my son, and the other two striking boys are my nephews Ryan and James. My boys :)

This shot only took 4 takes - one tester being a tester. I love how this photo captured us. Even the dog Zeus was looking!

My family. I love them so very much.

Locked Out

Well, I don't know what happened, but I was locked out of my blog. Everything seems to be ok now - at least I think. This is my tester post. :)
