It's December!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  Last weekend my husband put up the Christmas lights outside and this week he brought the Christmas tree inside.  We still have to decorate the tree, but I’m planning that for Saturday evening.  Take a look:

You can even see the tree in the window.

The Christmas songs are coming on the radio and more and more houses are being lit up around the neighborhood.  I can’t believe the year is almost over.  Time has just flown by this year.  I have managed to lose about 25 pounds in the last few months and become more active too.  I’m really looking forward to 2012 and reaching more fitness and health related goals.

We took Christmas pictures recently.  Here is the picture we used for our Christmas card:
I love the look on my Son's face.
 We had to wait around to get our pictures done. They always seem to be behind.  So by the time it was our turn to take pictures, my daughter was not in a good mood.  This was one of the only times she was happy.  It was my husbands idea to turn her upside down and I told the lady to take the picture.

Here is another one we took.  I just love my daughters face.  Like, what is your problem?

I have been slacking with my running in the last week.  My last run was last Tuesday.  Thursday (Thanksgiving) we all took a walk to the park so that counts as exercise, but then I got sick Friday night which means I didn’t run on Sunday.  I was still feeling off on Tuesday when I would have normally run again.  Then there was some crazy wind here on Thursday and I thought it was still going to be going on this morning only to wake up and no wind.  I could have run this morning. Oops.  I can’t tomorrow morning because my husband won’t be home to watch the kids. Maybe I’ll try to get in a walk to the park with the kids.   It’s getting colder in the morning which also makes it hard to get out of my cozy warm bed.  Anyway, it’s not the end of the world, but I’ll get back on Track this coming week.  

I read quite a bit in my CDCC book.  Unfortunately, I’m not really getting much from it.  It seems like a lot of things I already know.  The beginning of the book seemed to have some pretty good insight and then it got boring.  I’m going to finish it off for the challenge though.


  1. Dang girl, looking good! You guys seem to be full of christmas cheer, you should send some my way! Hope you get right back on track with your running, etc.

  2. I love the pic you used for the Christmas card. Definitely different!
