Merry Christmas!

Our family celebrates Christmas on Christmas Eve after church. 

Shoot me now because my almost 15 year old daughter is a beautiful girl with great legs. 

We hid her and her legs in the back (just kidding) in this photo. It's good to have my Dad & his wife with us for the holiday!

We read the book Donkey Daniel before we open gifts. I got the book in Sunday School in 1978. Every year it makes me smile to see my own children take turns reading this gem!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!

Jingle Bell Run!

It's that time of year in Arizona where the weather is nice and there are many fun runs!

I did the Jingle Bell Run with some girlfriends. Fun and also a good reason to wear a tutu, because we all know I LOVE tutus!

My girlfriends chest all decorated! 

Even saw another girlfriend I used to work with there with her family!

12k's of Christmas

My work out girlfriend and I did a 12k yesterday. 

We saw a lot of great costumes!

We finally for a photo with Santa...because it goes with our shirts that say, "Santa's Favorite Ho". Many a laugh throughout the day!
And great swag!
Christmas socks, Christmas arm warmers, Santa hat and clif bars!

Now back to biking! I learned I really don't ever get those running endorphins.

Scenes from Thanksgiving

We had a crazy busy day helping Dad & Linda with the potluck at their neighborhood. Sadly not many others helped so Dad & Linda did a ton of work!

The kids helping....

Fennel, Apple and Beet salad.

Cranberry upside down cake

Spicy cranberry relish.

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
