Christmas time catch up

on December 31, 2017

Oh, hey there! How’s it going? How was your Christmas?? I went off the radar for a bit and simply enjoyed being in the moment. It was pretty great πŸ˜‰ But, I’m back! And I thought I would just share some highlights with you….

My parents made the decision to make a quick trip to visit for the few days before Christmas. They lucked out in the fact that we got a little snow….and by little, I mean little. Someone, please send snow!!

Brooke wasn’t mad about it…


Jasper was concerned that Brooke was stuck in a hole, so he tried to dig her out. The sweetest.


The parents left on Christmas eve after a few days of play. I think they will be back πŸ˜‰

Christmas morning started bright and early as Brooke showed up in our room just after 5. Thanks, B.

Please note that it is pitch black outside!


My sister sent Jasper the coolest jacket ever! He was waiting for the snow blower to come out πŸ˜‰


Not sure about the face, but this girl loved every moment of opening her gifts.



When the sun came up (kinda?) we saw some glorious snow outside (over a foot!!).


Had to dive into all the toys.


Just searching for dino bones.


We spent most of the day playing outside in the fresh powder…Brooke skied in the yard and there were plenty of snow angels made.

The next day was my birthday. Thirty-five…how did that happen?


I ran 3.5 miles to celebrate.


Brooke pretended that she was a teenager and hid from me.


We ventured into town to wander around for a bit and grab some dinner. It was delicious!!


Picked up a new book. Amy is super sweet and I am loving her book.


The following day, we headed in to visit the Optometrist before the end of the year….new sunglasses coming our way!


My lovely husband got me a new camera for my birthday…something about my grainy blog pics…I’m figuring out how to use it πŸ˜‰



Friday saw 2 miles of easy treadmill running before we headed into town for an errand, a hike, a trip to the pool and dinner at our fave Mexican restaurant.


My new sunglasses (courtesy of my sister over at Projects and Puns). They make me feel cooler than I actually am!


Always wants to be the leader.




Fish Creek Falls was amazing…though it could use a bit more snow πŸ˜‰ Brooke hiked most of a 3 mile hike and did better than I did on the packed snow trail!




Snowball fight!





The dog was sure he won the day.


Today included lots of chores, a 5 mile run and a 5 mile cross country ski with Ken!! (Thanks to our neighbors for hanging out with Brooke!)

Ken went out with some buddies tonight so Brooke and I hung out.

17,000 steps…perfectly normal!


Playing unicorns…also perfectly normal!


And those are the highlights!! Hope you have had an incredible holiday season. I am in denial that real life begins again on Tuesday…hanging on to the last 2 days!!

    Love the watch … I have the same one I believe!! I am actually so ready to get back in the normal routine of life. I’ve been in a state of constant travel since just before thanksgiving. Minnesota, England (and all that entailed), home to Illinois, back to Minnesota, and now I sit in the airport wiaiting for my flight back home after running my last half marathon of the year. I am ready for some home time. Any big plans for the New Years? Next time you are in town or near ski village you should go to the iron waffle … it’s just a short walk from our condo and we love it!! Can’t wait to be in Colorado in May.

      So glad you will get to be home for a bit! How was your half? I just started training for one in April. We have not gotten nearly enough snow and we have dirt back to run on.
      I have heard great things about Iron Waffle. Totally need to check it out. Maybe we will have snow by May πŸ˜‰
