January blog posting

I haven't written anything for a long time! Holidays and my Dutch family was here and then I misplaced my camera until just now. Those are my excuses.

So, the pictures I'm going to add today are from Christmas and from the last class we had before the holidays took over our lives. We are now back to a regular schedule and I'll list classes for the next few weeks.

Judy has carving as a talent as well as doing beautiful stitching. Here are a few of the things she brought to show us.



AND she brought the delicious peanut butter balls.

These are a few of the cookies that Ginny, Carrie and I made to share.


Very Festive




And then Brenda outdid us all this day....




Then Oscar wanted in the picture!




This is my once a year Bloody Mary, although I admit that I had one at Thanksgiving also! It is a very Christmasy color!

Not all of those cookies were for me.


I must include two pictures of my little sweetie Nora.


It was great having Jennifer and Hugo and Nora here for a visit. Christmas at Ginny and Darren's is so much fun. They are amazing hosts and have more fun food than you can imagine. We had so many laughs and lots of stocking fun. No matter what happens during the year, for this day, we celebrate together in a wonderful way.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Now for 2016. I've added a couple of classes and renamed a few. I hope you will find something to pique your interest.

Any one else start Weight Watchers this year? I have been many times and am going again. I hope to be very successful this year. I found a website called Skinnytaste.com     She has very good recipes and WW points listed. She is on Facebook if you like that. I love her choices and serve many of them now at class. They are pretty quick and easy and very very tasty.

  1. Betty, I am a Lifetime member of WW and I love the new program. It is about time they brought back counting calories. They are now knocking the socks off of saturated fat and sugar, which is also. We get rewarded for activity and protein. This is one of the best programs from WW in about 30 years. I have been a WW for 40 years this September. It does work if members work the program. Have fun with it!
