Winter Wonderland....enough already

If you live in the Chicagoland area- chances are you don't care about having a White Christmas anymore- you are sick of the stuff already! (the above picture is from the Internet- I didn't take it, i took it from here- http://www.crh.noaa.gov/Image/lot/27772566.jpg)
Hopefully you didn't have to venture out much on Friday! My office was closed due to the weather, so I stayed inside virtually all day doing nothing much at all. I managed to get a little work done, but spent the morning lounging with Big Guy watching National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. It was a nice and lazy day- followed by a hectic Saturday gift hunting for Big Guy's family and a very cold Sunday. Big Guy Shoveled the back of the house near the garage and little paths to the door at least once a day! I think the novelty of the whole " it is winter, I am a man and I will shovel my land," thing has worn off. Poor thing.

On another note, Big Guy has expressed some interest in slimming down, and I have been trying to help him think of ways to do this. Unfortunately, a gym membership isn't really in the budget right now, and he has never been one for running- especially in winter, so we may be limited to the whole jumping jacks, sit ups and push ups routine, but I wondered if anyone had ideas of healthy lunch options and dinner options for that matter, that might keep him on the right track?

I hope all of you have a nice holiday this week. I am working tomorrow, so I should have one or two more posts in me this week. I am hoping to get some nursery pics and some holiday decor pics up before Thursday.

Happy Holiday to all of you- stay safe and have a wonderful week!

I am including some winter wonderland shots from around our house
