Christmas 2009 Family Pics!!!!

I haven't been real great at keeping up with my family blog. I guess I feel that I don't have too much to say that anyone really cares is life. Gabe is slowly getting up a bit more on his knees in order to crawl. He's cutting his top left front tooth. He's recovering from an ear infection and is still doing great from his October surgery.

My ward exercise group is still going strong and am loving it! I just wish I would eat better as well, then I might actually lose some weight. But with the holidays....I'll do good just to maintain at this rate. Then when the new year starts I can keep the goal of eating better! But you know what? I'm OK with who I am. I'm almost thirty pounds heavier than I was in high school....but for me that's OK. I carried around an 11.1 pound baby for over a couple of stomach stretched beyond belief...I was bigger around than my friend was who had twins the year before! So I have a lot of battle scars....the most ginormous stretch marks known to humankind and a c-section scar that still itches and twitches like the Dickens. So I say as long as I'm trying to eat relatively healthy, exercise, and enjoy life it doesn't matter what my waist size is! Just trying to be happy no matter what.

Archie is great. He's the super go-to guy at work and he's just the biggest support for me and Gabe at home. Don't know what I'd do without him. He's the best!

Here are our 2009 Christmas pics!

Isn't he just the cutest!!! We'll keep him!


  1. Oh, my word! Those are the cutest pictures EVER!!! When did Gabe get so big?! That means it's been too long since I've seen you!!!

  2. He'll be a charmer for sure! Your family ones are adorable as well.
    Good for you on being happy with who you are! I wish I could drive out to that exercise group all the time, that would be so much fun!
    Love you Miss Heather!

  3. All those pictures are GREAT! Grandmas will love them.

    When it comes to weightier :) matters, it is always important to feel good in the skin you're in. Since I don't know you real well, I will add that by all means look good--clothing and hair--at any weight stage. Some gals think they won't buy any new clothes until they are back to a certain size. I used to color analyze people for their coloring/clothing which also makes a huge difference in how you feel about the person in the mirror.

    Good luck on your goals. You're a delight!

  4. So cute Heather! I love the little gabster and so excited for sat!

  5. Oh my, LOVE the family photos- like all of them!!! Gabe is just adorable, already a ladykiller! And the ones w/ all of you turned out great. Thanks for the birthday card, that was sweet of you to remeber. I'm glad you have a good body image, I'm horrible at that. I have enormous stretch marks too and an uglier than ugly c-scar. I'm just hoping I can muster up some motivation and lose some weight next year. I do like working out, just love food more! Glad to hear you are all doing well.

  6. Those turned out so cute. I love them!

  7. Heather & Archie! I love your family pictures!!!! What an adorable family. I especially love the picture with the who family with the santa hats.

    Don't worry about the weight! It'll come off. I think you're totally gorgeous.
