I'd like to think that our family lives a pretty healthy lifestyle (although with over indulgent consumption of cookies, chocolates and rich foods this past holiday season, it is hard to think that we're even remotely healthy right now!).
One of the things we try to do is participate in a family sport. Skating and skiing in the winter, and swimming in the summer (hopefully I'll pick up golfing as both the kids and my husband enjoy that sport). It's something that provides the exercise we need while spending time with each other.
Unfortunately so far this winter, with all the rain we've been having lately, it feels like we should be swimming, not skiing right now. The temperature has finally started to get colder, so until the snow begins to arrive, skating at the local rink will have to do...although I'd love to head to warmer weather...and take a dip.
Cream cheese fruit dip

- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Mix all ingredients together grab a piece of fruit..then dip.
