Don’t forget to vote on the best gingerbread house HERE… we are going to tally up the votes this afternoon… I hope I win, I hope I win. Can anyone guess which one I made?
I swear Brooke actually knew that it was Christmas yesterday. She woke up early, happy and ready to party and show off her Santa suit for the 30th time this season.
The littlest stocking in the whole wide world.
In Billy’s family we all open up our stockings at the same time and then we take turns opening up presents. All I can ever really think about are these cinnamon rolls.
It is actually a requirement in their household to drink hot chocolate while eating the cinnamon rolls.
I thought it would be a really good idea to go on a run after eating the above sugary items. I thought that all of the glucose would make me run speedy and feel alive. It was a very long 3 miles. My biggest running advice that I can give is to not eat 2.2 cinnamon rolls and hot chocolate moments before a run.
A few hours later we went over to a family friend’s house for our annual Minute to Win It competition.
This game was the funniest to watch. The contestants had to knock over the water bottles using a tennis ball that was at the bottom of a pair of pantyhose that they had to wear on their heads.
And I won this Topsy Turvy because I guess I go a little over the top when I play games. I really will be using this on our deck, expect to see many tomato filled meals in the upcoming months. Billy won a back scratcher.
There was also delicious food at this gathering. They had chips and guac, smokies (hot dogs wrapped in bacon and cooked in brown sugar) and a veggie tray.
Along with treats including this amazing cake.
The best part of the afternoon was playing Dance Central on the XBox. I was instantly hooked and if any of you have an extra one of these games just lying around feel free to send it to me. I could play this all day long. I actually feel like all of that dancing was a really good workout and judging by the amount of sweat… it was a very good workout.
We came home, relaxed, watched movies, played ping pong and ate ham… what everyone does on Christmas right?
Do you take turns opening presents or do you open them all at once?
Coolest present you got or gave?
