So for our nice relaxing holiday this year, we picked my mother up from the airport on Thursday and promptly gorged ourselves on Korean food. Friday was spent doing some light shopping around town, going out for coffee, eating a ton of Indian food, and watching a taekwondo demo at kiddo's school. Saturday, Greek was the food of choice and we spent our Christmas Eve walking around the beautiful Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. We saw the enormous mausoleums of William Rockefeller and Leona Helmsly, along with the modest but touching graves of Andrew Carnegie and Washington Irving. Then we went home, gave the kids one present each, ate a painful amount of homemade pizza (hubby's family tradition, mmmmm) and put the kiddos to bed. We, aherm, "Santa", stuffed the stockings and built the play kitchen. Santa is a lush too, because a lot of our beer was gone by the end of the night.
|Kiddo got a camera as her first gift. This is the first photo. She now understands that she should wait after pushing the button.|
|Photo skills improving. Little brother with his new whoopee cushion, apparently a bit confused...|
|Present opening, Christmas morning|
|Stocking stuffer fingernail bling. Pure class.|
|A little Christmas running and cheer!|
|Drool-worthy goodness. Be jealous.|
Also, I plan on signing up for my first full marathon!!! I have chosen the New River Marathon to be it, because I just adore the feeling of the NC mountains and cute little towns, plus it's paired with post-race bbq and bluegrass. My heaven! Hubby may do the half that day as well, if we can recruit a grandparent to help. I've already begun compiling a list of races for 2012, and I can't wait to find out what NC has to offer. It looks like there's a great street/trail running community down there!
Now I'll attempt to find food in our delicious leftover-filled fridge and read about all the wonderful holiday happenings in blogworld. I hope to hear about your great times too!
