Feeling blue...

I hate this time of year. The holidays are over. The tree is gone. The decorations are down. The Christmas music isn't playing anymore. Our Disney vacation is a distant memory. And it's winter. I hate the winter. I don't mind the first snow but after that it can just go away! The thought of being in the house for the next 4 months depresses me. We will go out and play every once and a while but not like we did during the summer. I am going to look into swimming lessons for the girls. We plan on putting up a pool this summer so I would like them to take lessons.

The girls have discovered some new shows that they like. Dora and Diego. They like Diego a little more then Dora. I think it's because he interacts with animals. They also love the movie Annie. They walk around singing the songs. And reenacting some of the scenes of the movie. One of them will be Miss Hannigan and the other plays an orphan. It's really cute!

I have started my New Year's diet. Fingers crossed I stay with it this time. I was looking at some recent pictures of myself and I almost fell off my chair. I have put on a lot of weight. I am really disappointed in myself. But it's a new year and a new beginning. I don't want my kids to ever be embarrassed about me. And I want to be a role model for them. Yesterday they both exercised with me. It was pretty cute.

Here are some pictures of the girls playing in the snow :)

When I lived up North I hated this time of year too. It was always so dark and gloomy. I would make myself listen to "summer" music, you know stuff you would listen to at the beach.
