My holiday really began with a great dinner at a local restaurant, The Jean Bonnet Tavern to celebrate our wedding anniversary. No photos, sorry. I wish I had taken some. The food was beautiful and pentiful. In fact, hubbs and I did a little shopping after our meal to "walk off" some of our over eating! Since I had to work until 5:00 that day we didn't get much else done after our dinner. That was December 23rd.
Can you believe it? I had to work a half day on Christmas Eve! The kiddos went with their Auntie for the annual Christmas Eve Big Breakfast. Which I missed out on a kiddo free house because I was at work. Although, I did get quite a bit of work done however, the phone did not ring and I did not have a single customer walk through the door. I could have worked from home! Grrrrr. On the upside, I did get out with my running sherpa for an awesome 9.5 miles. It was so great to be outside.
We had two biking running sherpas with my oldest and I. My oldest is still preparing for his January joining the Army plan for life. He is excited for everything except the running. He...oh my, how can I break this to you all? It is almost painful to type. I know you won't understand but we have to be kind to those you just don't get it when it comes to running...and running a lot! He, he...he hAtEs running! There. There I said it. What is wrong with him?
(full disclosure: we don't say that word. The 'h' one. Yeah, I know I'm strict. But I don't believe anyone really every "h"s anyone so I refuse to let my kids use that word towards anything....you see how well they listen to me, don't you?!?!?)
Love the running/biking or not a good time was has by all except for my little sherpa needed a seat adjustment that she waited waaaay too long to have me do. That resulted in her getting very sore quads! Sorry, sherpa!
After an awesome run, we all clean up and went to my mother's for dinner before candle light service at our church. (no pictures) After service we all head back to mommy's, put on our pjs and exchange gifts!
Not everyone remember to wear cool slipper socks!
Can you guess which ones are mine??
