Just some cute videos of the kids. I hope they work--we don't have our speakers hooked up to the computer so I have no way of knowing if they have sound.

Here's one of Kaylin dancing and Dylan getting a kick out of it:

Jillian is kickin' my butt!

So for all of you who watch 'Biggest Loser' you've gotten to know Bob and Jillian and seen how tough and intense they can be. Well, now Jillian is working me!

After Dylan was born I wanted to join a gym and lose the weight faster than I did with Kaylin (especially with my 10 year high school reunion coming up) but I didn't quite get around to signing up and then Tim lost his job so I didn't want to spend the money for that. I decided I would try some workout videos and work out at home instead and see if I made any progress.

I went online to see what was available and what people liked and "Jillian's 30 Day Shred" was listed top among many reviewers. Amazon had it rated 4 1/2 stars from 775 reviews! So I decided to check it out. I've done two days now and let me tell you, I can hardly move! (And I'm only at level 1 of 3.) She does a circuit type workout (20 minutes everyday) with cardio, strength and abs--and absolutely no resting or stopping! It's really tough! I am sore in every part of my body so I hope that this will get me back in shape (man am I out of shape!) and some weight lost. I'll let you know after 30 days where I'm at.

So if any of you are looking for a quick way to change your body, this may be just what you're looking for. But be forewarned--it's tough!

Prayers, please

I have been silent on here (yet again) for awhile now because I was trying to decide if I even wanted to post about it. Tim lost his job about a month ago and so I'm on here asking for prayers as he goes out with the many thousands to look for another job. This was quite unexpected and we were both pretty surprised. Of course the timing isn't great with the new house and new baby, so I know the pressure and stress on Tim is great. Please pray for him. We question God's plan but we know he has one and we're trying to trust that there's a good reason for this and that he has better things for us. I know that this will be a time that will strengthen our bond as a family and our relationship with the Lord.
