December is shaping up to be a busy month ~
We've got our choir performance this weekend at church ~ so Sat. afternoon & Sunday afternoon/evening will be busy.
We've got 5 birthdays to celebrate this month ~ my little buddy Ragen, James, Jennifer, Andy & Rob.
We have a visit from Mom ~ next week. And we will go to GA the end of the month.
We are attending 2 weddings
We have the 15th anniversary of our church celebration.
Amy & I have 2 ballet performances to attend ~ The Nutcracker, today & The Snow Queen in 1 1/2 weeks.
We still have puppy training classes ~ there is improvement!
Amy's had a cupcake order just about every week ~ got 2 scheduled already for this month!
Dec. 24 & 25th we will carry on our new traditions of good food, family times & games. Our gifting is mostly completed ~ have one more to go!
I am going to make menu planning easy this month ~
Eggs of some sort
Me ~ Atkins Shake
kids ~ cereal, eggs, bagels, pop tarts, toast, etc.

sugar free jello or pudding
power crunch or Atkins bars
taco salad x 4
chicken enchiladas x4
chili x 4
fish x 4 with either salad or vegies

*We've made pizza using our low carb tortillas as the base ~ tasty! The toppings are all different depending on what we thaw out ~ different meats, onions, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, cheeses, etc.
Our meats can be either chicken, turkey, ground beef, or pork.
Probably Christmas day we will do steaks & shrimp, baked potatoes & salads. Greg & I have added in 1/2 a baked sweet potato to our rotations ~ we can do 1/2 a reg. baked potato too, but haven't yet.
