Speaking of eating snacks, you may have noticed there was no weigh in last Tues. That is because I didn't lose any weight. Same goes for this Tues. I seem to have plateaued; or maybe its those snacks! I'm usually not a 'snacker', but for some reason we both feel like snacking on a snow day.
Work has been really busy this week, hence the sparse posts of late.
We had a wonderful time at our young friend Emely's Quinceanera! I got upset at first because our NEW camera was not working correctly. For some reason it kept reading "Batteries exhausted" even though I changed the batteries out with new ones 3 times. Can anyone explain why this would happen? Fortunately my good friend Kerry is never without a camera so I got these photos from her.
This is Emely with her brother Javier and her parents Ana and Jose.
During the delicious sit-down dinner, the DJ began playing a mixture of 80s songs and Mexican songs. Then, as is the Quinceanera custom, the DJ played a waltz and Emely danced with her father and 2 uncles, each for 15 seconds or so. As one passed her off to the other they would twirl her around. It was so cute!
It was such a warm and loving affair! Everyone was smiling and laughing; there was no 'family drama' or competition. We were so happy to have been invited and to be able to make it back to VA for the party.
