“Santa brought me a nerf gun!!!!!!! It’s just what I’ve always wished for!!!!!!!!!!” [insert sounds of glee and an image of 7:00 a.m. on the clock]
I grew up with a strong paternal Jewish family and Catholic maternal grandparents. We celebrated Hanukkah and Christmas! Since our Christmas tradition was to open presents on Christmas Eve we never “did” santa.
This year, Tate and I are spending Christmas at his sister’s and with our niece and nephew. Finally, I got to see how this whole santa thing works!
Last night the kids made an extra special cookie for their extra special visitor plus some carrots for Rudolf.
The Elf (from the Shelf!) watched over the treats.
Late night, Santa needed a little help 😉
“He ate a leg!” “And there’s Rudolf slobber on the tray!”
Now I am all coffee’d up and ready to run! The plan today is a run, a quick Pilates workout, and maybe a little yoga. And more coffee. And a lot of playing with the Barbie Glamor Camper. And maybe some nerf action. 🙂
Are you working out today? Holiday workouts are some of my favorite, I think it’s because it feels like in the hubbub of it all I am treating myself to something good on so many levels.
Love the quote! Yes I intend a meditation and restorative yoga session> I also intend to get either a walk(yesterday walked downtown) or a 20 min dance cardio in as well. Yesterday besides the walk I focused on flexibility with long satisfying stretches in those “lost” moments you referred too;)
taemi & I did pilates! I’m getting better each time, now we must cook! love you faithy
Nice work Joshy! Tate’s done Pilates…once.
Went for a lovely walk today!
Barbie Glamor Camper sounds like fun…I was
a huge barbie fan when I was younger.
My niece is still a little too young for barbies…maybe someday 🙂
I as ALL about Barbie too! Between my two sisters and I we had dozens! The best was giving them haircuts ;).
I went iceskating for about 20 minutes this morning to try out the boys’ new skates. I also just finished a mix of yoga/strength/pilates tonight. It felt good to be active. Thank you for the encouragement!
