Me, some guy named Dwight, and P-Funk. Too bad the Magic lost, but the new arena is beautiful. This was mine and P-Funk’s Christmas celebration and it was awesome. Even our Latin Freestyle car concert on the way back to Btown ruled.
I have titled this picture “This is why I run.” This is just some of the food from Sunday’s family Christmas. We had everything snackie. From Cuban sandwiches to brownies to rum balls to wings to the 4,000 Christmas cookies I baked – we had a feast! I’m so lucky to have food to eat when others don’t. I am truly blessed.
These are my adorable grandparents; Granny and Pop. How cute is my Granny? Seriously, if this is my future I’m not doing too bad.
And of course I had to show off my little girl cousins. I love how cute and fun these two are. In total I believe there were 7 little ones and they are all awesome! (We are related so …duh..awesome runs in the family.) Every year I end up being Santa and passing out the gifts in a wrapping papered-frenzy. Fortunately, these two have stepped up the plate and are taking on the tradition of playing Santa, with a little help of course. After all of the eating and family fun yesterday I headed to the movies with Kalani and V to see Black Swan. It was very interesting and not for anyone who is squeamish at “adult” scenes. Lol! The only downside was that the folks at the theater were in rare form….again. One woman was snoring by the time the opening credits started rolling, a woman to my right felt she was in her living room and could yell at the screen, and yet another weirdo seemed to be playing the triangle behind us. Who does these things at the theater!?!? Oh well. The general public never ceases to amaze me. Last week was kind of a fail in terms of running. I only hit 28 miles and I really need to focus more. I suppose this happens every year around the holidays but I have a marathon coming up. So this week I will enjoy the festivities and get my runs in. I started today with my 5 mile pace run. I hope you all great weekends! Done with your shopping yet?
Oh my gosh look at the spread on that table. yummmmm
Aww! Granny is a cutie!
Latin Freestyle concert was great…but I forgot Stevie B! Kid Capri…I'm NOT.
And then there was that scary-Stephen King-Mist that crept up on us!
Thanks for a fantabulous time!
Holy that is a lot of food!!! Not even close to being done with shopping!!! AHHHH!
That's a ton of food! You and your granny look a lot alike! Too cute!
Great table spread! Beautiful family!!!
So jealous of you going to the Magic game! and of your "this is why I run" table. Makes me SO hungry!!!
What a fun weekend – holy food! Looks delicious. 🙂
What were you yelling at the screen? I'm dreading the food coma that is the holidays.
I'm done with my online shopping. I still need to buy my kid brother some snowboarding socks, and write up a "I will take you to the fashion district for a fabric shoppingpolooza" card (he asked for a sewing machine because he was tired of sewing crazy costumes by hand). Other than that, I just need to wrap everything. I'm almost out of wrapping paper, which means an excuse to go to Target. Oh darn. =)
Perspective: I only hit three miles last week. I'd say you did all right running-wise. Maybe the Magic will win more now that they have some new players. Cheers!
Holy cow that's a lot of food!
Dangggg. I think I just gained 10-lbs looking at that. No, I still have a lot of Christmas shopping to do! Master procrastinator.
ONLY 28 miles?? I hit 13.5 last week and that was my highest weekly total EVER!
I want your cousins red Christmas dress!!
And I really want to see Black Swan. Hopefully I won't get the annoying people – but I always do. Ugh.
Have a great holiday! I want to see Black Swan too.
