Well the pictures probably don't do it justice but in the last 3 months, I have lost 22.8 pounds. It has been hard work and hasn't come without some sacrifice. I only have about 5 more pounds to go.
This picture is great but I found it in one of my school annuals. I volunteer every year to serve pies at the Thanksgiving lunch. I usually ended up eating 1/2 a pie and a few helpings of Turkey and dressing.
Now, I eat an Atkins bar for dessert. I may miss my pie but I certainly don't miss carrying around 4 bags of sugar around my waist.
Fall is here and I love it so much.
I have seen several people painting pumpkins and thought it would be a fun activity. It ended up being more work than I ever imagined. I think the boys had fun but it sure was a mess. The mess was worth it and we were able to make another great memory.
Evan really wanted to be independent and I tried to let him as much as possible.
Luke painted all by himself and I am certain there was more paint on my floor and his body than anywhere else.
Jeff painted his pumpkin and I was quite impressed with his ability.
I bite off more than I planned to while painting this pumpkin but it turned out really pretty (if you dont look too close).

And here is our table full of painted pumpkins. Another great time with family.
Luke and I went on a date. I love my time that I get to spend on these "hot dates" as Luke and I refer to them. We decided to go eat mexican and go the the Harrison vs. Mountain Home game. Sorry Lindsay but we were cheering for the Gob's.
It was a beautiful night and reminded me why I love football so much.
Luke loved watching the game!
Boston loved watching the cheerleaders and the band.
I am not sure where I went wrong but it seems that my boy has decided to follow in his father's footsteps and be a Giants fan. Hopefully, I can bring Evan over to my side to cheer on those Cowboys.
A few months back, we took Luke for the day to Branson. He had previously asked us to take him, all by himself and go to Branson. He requested that he wanted to go eat and Zip Line. So as Luke requested, we went and had a blast.
We went to the Grand Country Inn for games and some mini golf. He loved climbing up in the thing and gathering up all the balls so he could shoot them out.
Jeff and Luke road go-carts and went very fast. He was smiling the entire time. I am pretty sure Jeff was having fun too.
Then we let Luke drive his own go-cart. He didn't really do so hot because he wanted to watch everything going on around him.
Luke and Daddy ready to take off!
Luke and Jeff taking off from their first platform while zip lining.
The boys getting ready to go.
Luke being very brave as he climbed these stairs. They were shaking the entire time. Luke said that it was more fun than scary.
These boys look so cute and they were very ready to take off.
The workers said that Luke was probably the smallest kiddo they had ever taken. He wasnt really afraid at first.
Jeff and Luke pretending to ride a roller coaster. I think it made them both a little sick.
These bumper cars were probably Luke's favorite time of the day. He loved it so much.
He barely was big enough to ride and we might have had to say he was 5. Oh well, he did great.
It's not often you see a boy in cowboy boots playing golf.
We kept trying to tell Luke that this was not the correct stance but hey it seems to be the new thing in golf so he went with it.
We had a great time, Luke and we will never forget this day. We love you kiddo!
