There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And
maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
Breathe in love & compassion.. Breathe out peace & forgiveness.

I will be doing that when the kids come back into my life. We will all sit down as a family and make Grandma's recipes lighter.

I agree!! Christmas is the birth of Christ. This business of stores opening in the middle of the night after Thanksgiving is insane. Our family is very small. No desserts this year. Nobody wants them after dinner, so why make the stuff just because you used to? We are trying to make new healthier traditions.

At Thanksgiving we would be at Grandma's house, get up eat cinnamon rolls with tons of white icing. I can not bake very well so I make a breakfast casserole instead. We would them watch the Macy's parade, finish putting together the big dinner. Eat it and then Grandma would take us girls to bed and read to us some stories about what the holiday is about, the founding of our country. Education was the most importing thing to Grandma so she would use anything she could to teach us something in a fun way.

I LOVE Christmas. The colors, the music, the decorations. Shopping w/o my honey. A great excuse to bake to your heart's content and to feed every body.
My favorite thing about thanksgiving is the MACY's thanksgiving parade and seeing Santa at the end.
I do have wonderful memories of both growing up and wouldn't trade any of them. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I don't let Christmas get that way. I have all my presents gotten and wrapped. I will spend the month of December listening to Christmas music and reading Christmas books.

I think Thanksgiving. It's a nice time to spend with family. Christmas is way too commercialized.

The anticipation, spending time with family, the looks of joy on my children's faces. What more can I say?? They are all things I am very thankful for in my life. emoticon Then there are many events in the area, like parades, tree lightings, the decorations for Christmas that put that warm feeling in my heart
