We ate lunch at Flat Top Grill. I had my birthday "free stir-fry". I had forgotten about it, but Jim remembered! It expired tomorrow. I did not eat with the chopsticks. But maybe I should, as I know I wouldn't get much food in my mouth! Anyway, my stir-fry was awesome and I have enough left for lunch tomorrow!

The Pre-Kindergarten students made a Thanksgiving snack. Each child brought their favorite snack to school. Each one took a turn emptying their baggie into the mixture. The teacher stirred it all up and filled their baggie with the mix. It was fun to watch them create this mix for their snack!
Our Weight Watchers meeting has moved to a new location. For as long as I can remember, the meetings were held at the church. Last week was the first meeting at the mall. It is a very nice store, but it sure seems small compared to our other meeting room.

Our students had a Veteran's Day assembly this afternoon. The Pre-Kindergarten students cut the shape of their hand from blue construction paper. Kindergarten, First and Second graders used red construction paper. After the morning Pre-K add their handprints on Monday, we will hang the finished flag in our gym.
We had our Chirpin' Chicks card swap tonight at Avanti's. I am feeding my friend Ericka's sweet little babygirl! She is such a happy little thing! Our cards were Christmas this month. Next month is our Christmas party, gift exchange and cookie swap.

Yesterday, at school, our students had their PBIS celebration. The theme was "Under The Big Top". Cindy and I were in charge of the photo booth. We made hats, noses and mouths on a stick and a large picture frame as props. I dressed up as a clown and we had fun taking the kids pictures. Now I have to sort through them and get them printed!
I have been struggling since July, trying to lose the same 3-4 pounds. Up and down until I feel sick before I weigh on monday nights. I changed the amount of protein I have been eating from 3 ounces a day, to 6 ounces a day. I lost 2 pounds this week! 2 pounds doesn't seem like much...but when you compare it to butter, well that's alot of butter!
Today is my 55th birthday. It was a very busy day! I went to the Women's Lifestyle Show with Stacie. We met John for lunch at Qdoba and used my birthday coupon. We ended the day at the spa, getting a pedi! Cindy and I went to school to participate in the Trunk or Treat. We handed out candy to a whole bunch of kids and it was really cold! Jim and I went to dinner at Alexander's Street Steakhouse! Yummy!
I started some Thanksgiving cards the other day. I wanted to try the embossing paste. Well, one thing led to another and I tried every stencil I owed! I kept trying until I got the right thickness. I hope to make some other cards out of the flowers.
Last night and today, I worked on Peyton's Halloween costume. He wants to be a gargoyle! He has said this to me since last Halloween. I constructed the feet out of an old pair of his shoes and fun foam. I sprayed the feet and gloves with "stone" spray paint. I can wait to see what he thinks!
Jim and I went to Toys R Us tonight. I found gift certificates at school the other day, that had been long forgotten...like since 1997! LOL They accepted the old Geoffrey Bucks... $175.00. I bought prizes for the birthday basket and our postive behavior program. I had to pay 47 cents.
