Christmas Activities All Week Long!

December 20, 2014

Wednesday: I met up with Sierra (a girl I used to coach at the HS and now she is back from college), Rachelle, Amber & Megan. We went out for 103:28 (running about 8 miles). It was a nice run! I really enjoyed it. Once I got home, my day began with lots of babysitting (it began at 7:30 a.m. until 9:45 p.m.) with a total of 11 extra kids. :/ Yep, it was busy but we did do organized games/crafts.

We had parents come take over all the classrooms, offices, etc so the teachers could have a nice catered Christmas lunch. As I just stated… Corom and I took care of the cafeteria craziness! It was fun, though!

Thursday: I met up with Beth and Trish and went out for a 1:02.12 minute run. Another nice run with good company. We did run into Mac, Amber & Rachelle. Corom and I went into my oldest daughter’s class for a presentation. Corom talked about Costa Rica and their Christmas traditions and I talked about Greece and their Christmas traditions.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/b6a/56029500/files/2014/12/img_6354.jpg Busy morning… We were able to go home and get things cleaned up before I headed off for indoor track practice.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/b6a/56029500/files/2014/12/img_6355.jpg I sent them off on a run, then met up with Corom and the girls up at my mother in laws house. We were decorating ginger bread houses…

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/b6a/56029500/files/2014/12/img_6356.jpg The girls loved it!!! I had to leave for work shortly after (thank goodness I didn’t have to clean up ;)). I helped Rebecca at the Clarion Gardens for a Christmas dinner party…

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/b6a/56029500/files/2014/12/img_6361.jpg I do enjoy working there… Nice to make some extra money and the food is excellent!!! I didn’t get home until late!

Friday: I met up with Amber, Rachelle, Megan, Melissa and Scott for my run. Amber and I took off from the group and would turn around and go back to them throughout the run. We ran for 1:04.24 today. The girls had an assembly at school today. All the grades sang different songs and then I arranged for a Santa to come in. My neighbor is awesome… Thanks Chris! He agreed to do it at 9:30 this morning. :/ We thought we had a Santa lined up but realized late last night that we had no Santa… So Chris said he would do it!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/b6a/56029500/files/2014/12/img_6362.jpg It went well! The kids loved it. We had our annual adult Christmas party with the neighbors. We put our kids to bed around 7… They were asleep by 7:30. 8 everyone started to come. We ate, talked and did the white elephant gift exchange. It was funny!!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/b6a/56029500/files/2014/12/img_6366.jpg It was fun to hang out with everyone. Corom and a few of the guys went out to pull a few pranks on a friend of there’s… Who knows what but I will find out in the morning. :/

  1. I love reading about your adventures! So glad you are getting some fun runs in. By the way I love gingerbread houses! Rock’s mom teaches a 2 year old pre-preschool class. Every year they make houses out of recycled milk cartons from lunch and graham crackers and LOTS of icing. Every kid brings candy. Last year we went to watch (which was hilarious) and then we took the left overs to a family up in MI when we went to visit at Christmas. It was the most fun activity ever. Parents and kids were totally into it!

  2. I remember making the gingerbread houses out of the lunch milk cartons! Those were the days! Corom every year (except this one :/) puts firecrackers and bottle rockets into the houses to blow them up on New Years… He gets into it more than the kids do.
