Merry Christmas!

Happy Holidays everyone!

Just wanted to check in and wish everyone a very merry Christmas! Also I wanted to update because I've actually been working out just about every day. I've been running a few times and everything seems to be pretty well recovered. I feel so out of shape but I'm taking it easy and having fun. I've been to lots of classes at the gym and have also been lifting weights with Zach regularly.

Waterfront with Zach in all our holiday glory. Behold our Christmas Eve running outfits:

Yay! We got lots of smiles and one "Merry Christmas" and on lady honked and waved. Fun stuff.

Now we are getting some food going for the Christmas Eve gathering here in a little while- Deana and Dana are coming over with glad tidings of comfort and joy. Zach is making an apple pie! Tomorrow we're just spending the day at home opening gifts, watching The Christmas Story, eating french toast souffle, and drinking mimosas. Then we still have the whole weekend ahead of us which is very nice. We're going running and possibly heading up to the mountains to do some snowshoeing. It's going to be a great holiday weekend!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night! :)

One last picture- our wee little Christmas Tree:

Merry Christmas! Way to go on all the workouts!

BTW, I have those exact same socks! However, when I wore them for the Jingle Bell 5K, I had to wear them over two pair of paints and another pair of socks!
