Should we or shouldn't we?

Our family has had a dilemma the last few months and we have been torn about making a certain decision.

Half of the family said "YES!"

The other half said "Hmm, I don't think we should."

Half A thought it was a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Half B thought we were breaking rules.

So, both halves wrestled and tug-o-warred and half A finally triumphed at about 11:00 pm last night.

Being among the losing half, I am reluctant to share the pictures from this morning's event. But, I must admit - it was a WONDERFUL event!

Please don't think I'm a terrible person. Here goes.

We snuck out of the house at 5:30 this morning, with camera in hand, and witnessed.....

this...









Keep going...













I'm stalling to create an air of suspense...






















Oh, it was so good to see Darren. He is flying to Moscow as we speak.

It did my heart good.

(Hey - I just saw your comment about weight watchers ... I am one too!!! I have been in the program since March and have been loving it. I am planning a post late this weekend about my favorite treats and tricks and ways to feel like you are cheating when you are not - I promise it gets a lot easier. The first couple of weeks are the hardest - though you can lose the most weight then, too.)

So who is the third, hooded, missionary in the picture to the right? Funny how he looks like a rebellious one and how it appears that he has a name tag.

Hey - I just posted some of my favorite things to eat on weight watchers, but email me if you want (janellfw72@hotmail.com) and we can talk about Why I Love the Core Program so much - even though I thought it sounded so weird and scary at first. I think you can feel a lot more full on core.
