Merry Christmas!

December 26, 2014

Christmas Day!!! Ours began at 4 a.m. My girls came in at 4 asking if it were time for presents. :/ We had to wait for Corom’s mom and Gary… They were planning on coming over at 6/6:30. So of course I told the girls to go back to bed… They came in every 10-15 minutes. Finally at 5 to 6:00, I had them call their grandma to have them come down. Well they got snowed in and couldn’t make it. We, too, were getting a good amount of snow. 🙂 By 6:10 we were opening up presents. The girl’s stockings lacked in the goodies & little gifts… They were fighting the past few days, so we had to take away something (we kept threatening that Santa would take something away). We explained this reasoning to the girls but it didn’t seem to faze them. :/

Friday: I went out for a 13 mile run with 7 of it with Mac and Amber. The roads were snow packed and ice over… Yep… I slipped and fell once. :/

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/b6a/56029500/files/2014/12/img_6554.jpg Yeah… Don’t ask. :/ Well it’s late and time for bed!

  1. I can’t stop laughing at that last picture! Ah, little girls. Too much. Glad you made it through your snowy run. I did 6 the other day in MI with snow and my calves were tight the following day. Running on snow always pushes your body in a different way for sure. So glad you had a nice Christmas!

    • Yes my calves and the rest of my legs were more sore today… But I do not mind running in the snow. When my girls came up (in the last picture) I couldn’t help smiling… They kept saying they were grow ups now. :/
