New Year, Old Resolutions

Hello, Everyone! I asked Kelly if I could post today about New Year's resolutions. It's been on my mind. . .well, our mind. . .ever since Burt and I had the courage to step on the scale three days after New Year's. Oh, my goodness. . .what a shock! Burt and I both knew we'd indulged ourselves way too much with all the holiday food, but we had NO idea how much!
We tried to keep ourselves in check but it's SO hard when all these scrumptious goodies sitting around. Aunt Helen's Gingersnaps (made by Kelly), Pete's Pecan Pie, Ruth's Blueberry Pie (made by Megan), And this sinfully delicious chocolate mint fudge that kept turning up. I have NO idea who made it, but it kept appearing everywhere. Just like the Pumpkin Bread, Cranberry Orange Nut Bread, Coconut Cherry Macaroons, Cinnamon Rolls, and. . .all topped off with Burt's Wassail, of course.
Goodness. . .after all that, it's no wonder we gained weight. How about you folks? Did you gain weight over the holidays? Which treat was your "downfall?" Share with us. We'll never tell. :)
