Before I get to today’s post, I am posting our weekly menu. Amy found an amazing blog called “Skinny Taste” with tons of yummy recipes and she also lists the Weight Watchers points plus for each meal! This is awesome because we’re always looking for new ideas and since starting WW I am finding it harder to meal plan. This site is going to make it easier!

A few days after Christmas, my parents departed the Great White North for destinations further south. In order for them to keep in touch with us, they gave us a web-cam for Christmas. Shane took a few minutes Saturday morning and hooked up the camera to the computer and Amy got us registered on Skype.
I have to say, being able to speak with and actually see the people you are talking to is really, really, cool. The kids had a blast talking to Grandma and Grandpa. Meri sat on my lap and pointed at the screen “dere’s Memphis, dere’s Ma J, dere’s Grampa” (Meredith cannot seem to say her name, so it comes out ‘Memphis’ ~ we figure that nickname is going to stick! Ma J is what she calls me…should be Mama J).
Of course, the very best part of talking over the webcam is that it’s completely free! No long distance charges. We’re thinking we’re going to buy one for Amy’s parents too, since they’re out in Calgary and we rarely get to see them. What a great way to keep in touch with those you love.
Do you Skype? If so, who do you call?
