So, I'll tell you a true story courtesy of said Princess - with her permission of course :oP -
Princess was selling her house (this is key to the story) and had one of those mornings of rushing around like crazy before leaving for work and trying to leave the house in showhome standards. Well, she arrived home and when she walked into her walk-in closet what was she greeted by? I'll give you a hint - Aunt Flo and bumper pad - draw your own conclusion. Now this wasn't discreetly rolled up and tucked in the garbage can. Oh no, this was proudly on display, almost under a spotlight.
Would you die of embarrassment? I'm not sure if I'd die of embarrassment or if Aaron would just kill me to put me out of my misery.

Tonight they listened to Sensei Lisa and were amazing. I was so proud of them!
We even went to Wal-Mart afterwards to pick up a few things and they demonstrated their moves for the cashier.

Here's where the different viewpoints come into play.
JT: That's awesome we're going to stay up late!
Alex: Make sure you get a room with a hot tub like the last wedding.
Me: Hmm..I wonder what I'll wear.
Aaron: Hey! If you get the exact address of everything we can program it into the GPS, how cool is that?
Seriously folks, I kid you not. My husband is turning into a geek. LOL!

Is this what you have in mind?
Okay, we're not quite that athletic, we can't just grab onto a pole and fling ourselves around and around.
To be honest at the beginning I was having a hard time managing just the sexy walk. BUT it's only because I was wearing my sneakers - once I took them off I could totally strut in my socks :o)
The music was good, the instructor was good and the class was good. There were about 10 of us in this small MIRRORED room. And yes we had to look ourselves in the eye as we were performing/exercising. I think in this class there's a very fine line between the two.
Our instructor (can't remember her name) had 3 rules for the class.
- Respect yourself
- Respect others
- and I can't remember the last one (Andrea can comment and add it) I'm thinking it was like Have fun or something similar
Anyways, our teacher said that we are our own harshest judge and that was totally true. When she looked at me and said 'good job, you're doing it' all I kept thinking is 'are you kidding me?, I am so NOT doing it the way YOU'RE doing it' BUT at the same time I was enjoying myself.
So why as women are we so hard on ourselves? Even the totally fit women in the size 0 Lulu's were critiquing themselves pretty hard and laughing at their lack of coordination.
Do we ever reach a point in our lives when we love our shape and size?
Maybe that's something to strive for in '09.

In one word I'd have to say he is SWEET.
In two words it would be SUCH SWEETNESS.
Jeff, Kathryn and Liam are all doing well. If anything the new Mom and Dad are tired and can't wait to sleep in their own bed.
And Liam is just PERFECT.
Words can't describe the amazing contentment I had just sitting, holding Liam and chatting with Kathryn and Jeff. Some people are just meant to have children - their family is complete :o)

I just got the news this morning - and I'll admit I was a wee bit surprised but in a good way. Little Liam was born at 8:22 last night and weighed 5 lbs 1 ounce. He's perfect! Kathryn thinks they'll be going home tomorrow :o)
Congratulations to the family!
And a special congrat to Kathryn for keeping the name a secret - I'm totally impressed.
I'd better get dressed so I can go buy some preemie clothes for the little guy!
Pics to follow soon...

So, as a parent what do I do?
Option 1: Make them go. They would probably enjoy the games for sure and they're making rainsticks tonight out of wrapping paper tubes. Who wouldn't like that?
Option 2: Let them stay home. Where they'll do the same thing they usually do in the evenings, dinner, playtime, bathtime, bedtime.
Hmm, I'll have to consult Aaron and see what he thinks we should do. He's anti-Beavers because he didn't care for it as a kid (probably because he swallowed his 25 cent dues one time) so he may lean towards skipping it BUT he's also a believer in following through with whatever you start.

Well, she has signed us up for Strippercise classes starting next week.
Should be fun! I'm TOTALLY looking forward to it.
Maybe we'll work up to Poledancing by the summer ;o)
***hmmm, Blogger's not working again - I was going to post a funny poledancing pic***

I've been working on our invitations, and donation solicitations for our next big fundraiser. Mom and Janine have been helping but I've got one of those obsessive personalities where I CAN NOT STOP THINKING ABOUT IT. They can definitely attest to how many copies of almost the exact same letter/invite they've been getting via email. But, what can I say? I'm a planner and I like things to go smoothly. The donations have already started to trickle in !
Last year's party was a huge success and a ton of fun but I can already foresee that this year's party will be even better.
