Thursday's Three

1. I participated in the sock swap that Courtney at Third Time's a Charm Runner hosted.  I was lucky enough to have her as my sock sender.  Check out my great haul!  GU in Tri-berry and Mandarin Orange, Dove chocolates, a huge box of Gobstoppers, Sport Beans, 2 packs of hand warmers, Lindor Chocolates, cute candy cane knee highs and the grand finale was the Lululemon Brisk Run Headband.  I am so in love with it. 

My daughter had to pose with the goodies, mostly she couldn't wait to open the box of Gobstoppers.

"Like you could either, what of it? I also took the strawberry EOS chapstick, it was pink and should be mine"

2.  Christmas was good, we went up to the in laws in Ronan which is a 7 hour drive for us.  We were going to leave Saturday but with Rance and the kids both having a really bad cold we delayed a day so everyone could heal up a little.  Little cowgirl was about over it by then but little cowboy had it pretty bad all weekend.  I felt my worst on Christmas Eve and am feeling mostly recovered now., but am still scratchy throated and have the snot going on.  Joyous.

The kids and everyone really made out like bandits with lots of great gifts.  My little sister was awesome and filled the stockings at home and set out Santa gifts and left a Santa note so that when we got home it looked like Santa had been here.  My son had been so worried about that.  He did not want to go to Ronan for that reason.
3.  We got home around 3 in the afternoon yesterday and this guy was so excited to see us

I took him for a quick 4 mile run.  I wanted to run longer but it was getting dark and I had lots to get put away, organized, and I wanted to play with the kids.  The picture of Cola is not from yesterday as we now have snow on the ground. It is from Saturday.  Pretty sure I looked all frosty like that too.

I took nearly a full week off from blogging and running and working out.  Feels good to have a break and good to be back!
