The children of Salah Azaiez hospital received a very pleasant surprise when Marines from the American Embassy in Tunis arrived on December 24 to bring them brand new presents. The gifts were donated by members of the Embassy community as part of the Marines' annual "Toys for Tots" program, which seeks to spread Christmas joy by donating new toys to underprivileged children. The Marines sponsor "Toys for Tots" wherever they are located as a means of encouraging community activism and supporting a message of hope during the holiday season.

I'm having the same problem. I dropped a lot of weight before Christmas and over the last 2 weeks I have put 2-2.5 pounds back on. The worst part is now I have gotten myself back into those bad eating habits, it's so hard to break again. I've tried a diet restart so many times this week and my hubby laughed and said why don't you just give it up until after the New Year? Too much temptation! Not to mention he's a bitter bug when I'm tossing all of the sweets out of the house. He on the other hand ate his way through Christmas and intends to eat his way through the New Year! I hate men sometimes LOL

Mine thought that he could. He's 6'3 and 220 pounds, though he was only about 210 when he got here and there was a lot more muscle to those abs than what I'm seeing now. It only took almost 3 years of American eating to pudge up his middle lol Now he keeps patting it and saying where did my 6 pack go?

all i got for christmas were my 2 front teeth. cost me 2000.00 dollars. dang!
I need to get my 2 back teeth removed (wisdom teeth) and I think it's going to cost a lot more than that. It would have been a Christmas miracle if I woke up and they were gone.
