Christmas and New Year Pics!

Ice Skating In Charlotte, North Carolina!

A Family That Drinks Coffee Together, Stays Together!

Getting Wild on New's Year Eve in Key West, Florida!

A good time, most of the time. We both stayed on the low carb path but still managed to enjoy our meals immensely. Lots of delectable, fresh seafood and even a night out at The Palm! But all in all, it's good to be home.

PS - Maddy is now down 18 pounds and feeling better each day! Lots of people are noticing her success and I have the feeling she'll be inspiring quite a few of her colleagues and friends to join us on our low carb pilgrimage. Love it!

PPS - A reworked version of the Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies was featured in one of my Healthy Fellow columns this past week. It uses Truvia instead of Splenda and features a shift in the baking time. The end result is an even better tasting cookie with a more cookie-like texture (less crumbly), IMO.

The family that drinks coffee definitely stays together! Glad ya'll are home, safe and sound!

Thanks, Anne! My Dad frequently reminds us that he owns stock in Starbucks (probably on a few shares!). That always gives us a good excuse to drop in for a brew or too! :-)

Starbucks gift cards are a popular gift for Nurses during the holidays...no conflict of interest!
I usually have a couple of them here and there.
I'd better go get me some Starbucks!
