Merry Christmas, Our Holiday Recap and Giveaway!

How did the holidays sneak up on us?! I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas (if you celebrate) or Happy Holidays. We have been busy with life: work, dance, gymnastics, school, family and running. But we managed to get in a little Christmas fun...

Fun at friends' Ugly Sweater Party
Sorry, can't really see our great sweaters!

The Nutcracker with O on the coldest day in many years, temps of -20!

I got to volunteer at O's school party before winter break. It is always fun meeting her friends and seeing the kids interact. She has a great teacher this year who is so calm with her, I need lessons!

Pre Holiday CrossFit killer workout on Friday. O is loving CrossFit kids too. She even decided to "help" and I managed 30 push ups (although not too pretty) with her on my back, then she jumped on for the tank pushes to add her extra weight!

Woke up Christmas Eve for a great 10 mile run with friends before doing lots of cooking (and later eating!). We hosted our families for an evening of appetizers (vegan & GF mostly) and gifts.

Christmas morning we nice and relaxing: a little sleeping in, gifts from Santa, another run with friends and yoga. We had planned to get out on the trails to ski but it was raining! Yes, rain on Christmas, yuck! Instead we stayed home, played some games and went to sleep.

Hope everyone had a great Christmas! Do you get a winter break?

Yikes, has it really been almost 2 months since I posted?! I have so much to share but to ease back into blog fun and to celebrate the holidays I am doing a quick giveaway (and will share about my fun November and December adventures starting tomorrow).

Here's a little on my missing time: Disney, CIM, guiding a blind runner, back to marathon training, sub 6, holiday fun!  What have you been up too?
