Where Are You Christmas Soccer Snow Performance? 4Ms

Tendrils of life...
Soccer is over but we still go for off-season practice because coach wants to keep the boys together and hope to see them better. He is a good coach. He has invited other teams to practice together to lower the cost of renting the indoor soccer field.

**
Today was my daughter's last Christmas performance with the bible study group she has been with for so many years.
She is now in 5th grade and that's the age limit.
It's all so bittersweet. The kids are simply a delight to watch!

***
Another program finished and you'd think we'll have more time to sit around right? Nope! I can see something else creeping in and taking its place soon!

****
We had SNOW here in LA! It was quite the excitement! I think the last time with had snow it was in 2010 or 12...
But we had the white stuff.
I woke up to my early morning alarm and saw flakes on my phone. I went to look outside because I really didn't believe it would snow. But I saw the white stuff I got really excited! I went to get the kids up and outside to touch the stuff!
We even made snowballs! Many other places had quite a bit more than we did! Oh it was just special!
My fingers were so frozen that cold water felt HOT!

Christmas Program Beta Kilarney - 4Ms

I was hoping that the soccer busy blitz of October and November would be over, but alas, other things have taken its place. However, I hope by  December 25, things will calm down a bit.

*
My daughter is practicing for our Christmas program that will be held in December. She also has speaking lines, along with the songs and dancing.
It should be fun! I hope she will be healed before then.
She is fighting a bad cold.

**
Both kids went to the National Jr Beta Club District day for fun, competitions and all the stuff they supposedly do at those events.
My son is in a team of three that did a book battle but their team didn't place. This is new to him, so I hope he'll get more into it and excel.

***
I am thankful that my husband still has a job....but this debt is eating me alive. I wish this was not part of our family's struggle.
Pray for us y'all.

Now I just need some time to relax with the loves.

Welcome to Monday! It's CHRISTMAS  Music all month y'all!

Are you looking to improve your health? Maybe lose some weight, sleep better, have more energy?
Here are some basic Plexus questions and answers:

1. HOW MUCH IS IT?
The pricing ranges! We have tons of products! A majority of our individual products are between $20-$40. NONE are over $100. Most people take a combo of products that end up costing about $4 per day (Less than a fancy coffee and less than that soda and a candy bar). Message the ambassador that invited you for more details!

2. IS IT SAFE?
Yes. In fact, Plexus is the most natural health supplement line on the market today. All of our products are gluten free, NON-GMO, contain no artificial sweeteners (including Sucralose and Aspartame), no dyes or chemicals, and most are vegan. I know many pregnant & breastfeeding women who have had Plexus approved by their doctors! We are about HEALTH, getting to the root issues of the reasons people are unhealthy and have difficulty losing weight, we are NOT a dangerous diet aid, or a fad diet that produces quick weight loss with a band-aid fix. We are about long term solutions and lifestyle changes.

3. WILL IT WORK FOR ME?
Plexus has something for EVERYONE and CAN help EVERYONE! Plexus has one of the highest success rates in the Health Supplement industry and less than a 1% return rate!! However, I also believe it is important that you work with a knowledgeable ambassador who will help you find the best regimen to reach your health goals! This, paired with consistency in taking the products, working WITH the products, can equal incredible and undeniable results!

4. I'M TRYING TO DECIDE BETWEEN _______ & PLEXUS. WHAT MAKES PLEXUS DIFFERENT?
This one gets me excited because Plexus is not a diet! Yes, weight loss is an amazing side effect of getting healthy but Plexus has so many other MEASURABLE results. You can measure your blood sugars, cholesterol, blood pressure - it has ingredients to help with each of these. Getting healthy from the inside out and GUT HEALTH is key to overall health and wellness!
Any other questions? Just let us know!! We are here to help!

Thanksgivingness and The Scatman - 4Ms

I hope y'all had a peaceful Thanksgiving with family and friends.
My husband was able to be home with us, he's been away quite a long time. The kids and I had a good time together, cooking, laughing, and just being lazy hanging out.

I was able to pump up the bicycle tires and we finally took a late ride last night, even though I am ill.
Baby girl wanted to go so bad. Things were always getting in the way.
I was heating up dinner when she asked again. I looked at the clock and it was already after 5pm which means it's now midnight dark. We did a couple lapse, flashlights in hand and then returned home. I didn't want to disappoint her.
We will have to go earlier.

The kids helped me cook the Thanksgiving dinner. I want them helping to see how much time and energy it takes to prepare dinner and also to clean up.
My son is learning how hard it all is and why he should lend a hand to his wife/Significant other when dinner is being prepared.

I didn't bake this year. I had no desire to do this and I had to talk myself into cooking.

Now I have this raw cold and I just wish for someone to take care of me.  Ever feel that way? Oh well, it's life.

I hope I get well soon.
