I've Decided...

I'm going to just have to stay fat...until after the holidays that is. :)

Seriously, this is my last holiday season at "home" for who knows how long. I'm not even going to restrain myself from Granny's pecan pralines, chocolate pies, little fried fruit pies, etc. etc. etc. That would be pure foolishness. And, 5 years from now when I'm in some Amazon area wishing I had some of those things, I'm going to be kicking myself and thinking that those extra pounds just weren't worth it. Do you know what I mean? No, we are going to eat and we are going to enjoy. So there.

If you see me and I'm still a fatty...well, now you will understand. Besides, I did just have a baby 2 months ago. I guess after the holidays in that small period before Jan. 13th (the day I have to wear that gorgeous strapless gown), I will be starving myself. Then on the day of the 13th, guess I'll have to get one of those lace-up corset things and hire me a "Mammy" to tie me up...REALLY tight. :)

You are so right! I just tried to make a pumpkin cake roll but we don't have wax paper down here and it just didn't work. I tried using vegetable paper and it stuck to the cake. Not to mention that I had to cook a gourd that is something like a pumpkin to get the "pumpkin" to make the stupid thing. EAT UP and enjoy!!!! And use as many pre-prepared food stuff as you can before you come!!!!!!

I think you look great for just having a baby 2 months ago! Eat away! It's part of the Christmas tradition. Even Brock is a little lax at Christmas time.
