Christmas is almost here!

Are you ready for Christmas? I am almost done with all my shopping! This is a pic of me and my sister's and my sis in law from the Christmas party my parents had this last Saturday! It was really fun.. and had way too many treats! If I can just make it a few more weeks until Jan 1 then I think I will survive the holidays without doing tooooo much damage to the progress I have made! Anybody have any good ideas for New Years resolutions? Besides weightloss.. because thats a given!

Run RUn RUN.....

So Sunday...Me, Lobsang and Leann all did the 5k Run for arthritis. It was soooo fun! It was called the Jingle Bell Run.. and everyone was wearing Christmas stuff and had Jingle Bells tied to their shoes. It was a great way to start the Christmas Season! I have always despised running...let me tell you! BUT, when you can actually run for a while it starts to become fun... I am totally becoming obsessed with the idea of being able to run farther and farther without me it's such a challenge and I love it! Don't get me wrong I won't ever be the type that runs a marathon or something a year from now.. that would have to be a miracle. But these little 5k and 8k runs are very fun! We are going to do the Shamrock run in March.. and I can not wait to see how a few months of actually training improves our time from this run to next! Wish me luck! Oh and I pretty much owe it to Lobsang for talking me into the Jingle Bell run... I would have never done it without her prompting! SO THANKS LOB!

point and shoot cameras arn't the best Sorry!

4 am shopping rules! oooppsss sorry the pic is sideways

My mom in the morning after shopping rush!

Everyone minus Me! Getting ready to dig In!

My dad trying to move the Turkey from the pan to a platter.... Difficult task! Turns out we needed about 3 people to do it!

So Thanksgiving this year was pretty low key. Much more low key then normal. It was just my mom, dad, me, and my sisters in-laws and family. Usually its all of us.. but Josh was with his inlaws this yr and Kim was out of town. We did end up getting to see Matt and the kids later on in the evening. It was nice though... really relaxing! We actually spent alot of time crafting our plan for the morning after shopping spree! We ended up hitting alot of stores and shopping from about 5 am to 5pm. I didn't get too much stuff.. but Jessie pretty much finished up her shopping! I didn't end up seeing any crazy people pushing old ladies down for the last pair of socks or anything... although that would have made my day a tad more interesting! At the expense of an old lady that is.. so I guess it is a good thing it didn't happen! Hahahaha
