Good morning! So, as the countdown continues, does anyone have one special Christmas memory? It could be a specific event or just one special day. One special moment was a Christmas when my oldest son got his first set of trains, Brio trainset...http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee109/jeannie216/100_9709.jpg (broken link)...He was just mesmerized by them and until this day, he has become a real train buff, Lionel in particuliar...http://photobucket.com/mediadetail/?...fset=20...even has a Lionel track running his length of his bedroom on the ceiling. Anyone else? Coffee with splenda and soymilk so far......have a great day! http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee109/jeannie216/christmas200661.gif (broken link) Jeannie

yes, I agree. When my 2 oldest boys were little, I was always the one shuffling the little guys all over creation. Exhausting for all three of us. Now, we're usually home for Christmas Eve and my MIL's on Christmas Day in the afternoon....thats it.

My son got a train every Christmas for between five to seven years. We started out small and ended up with something so complex that it was almost too hard to put together. That was the last one. The one toy I remember most was a Tonka dump truck my brother gave him and he broke it. My son broke a Tonka truck! That still amazes me. He was about 2 years old when he did this.

5 cheese salsa meatballs (I counted them as five, I never go above one point for a meatball.)
cucumber slices and a bite of lettuce and a bite of tomato. Just didn't want a salad. I guess I was full from the meatballs. They were so good!
Coffee and milk (1)

Have you figured out yet that I try to plan 6 point meals. If lunch or dinner is going to be more I just have a banana for breakfast.

Izzy, have fun on your trip! Get back well and post pics soon!

The one Christmas encounter I remember best is when I was about 12 or 13. We were all at my grandparents' house and had a Santa coming over to surprise all the kids (me and all my cousins - 3 boys and 4 girls). One cousin, he was about 6 that Christmas, said it wouldn't be too bad to not get any presents . Everybody knew that so Santa only brought him a fir branch and some coals. Of course he also had a present with him but he only gave the coals and branch to him and continued with gifts for the others. My cousin cried so hard and was so dissapointed. I just cannot forget it...

No breakfast.
Pasta with fresh tomatoe sauce and a small piece of turkey breast for lunch.
Some ice cream with cream and chocolate sauce at 4 p.m.

Dinner will be some more pasta with tomatoe sauce.

Have a great evening all!
Diana

Yes NCN, the point system worked great for me also. When my eating was out of control, it helped me to know that if I was good for a meal I could always endulge with another.
