Christmas morning started off bright and early with Brooke opening up her presents at home.
I don’t know if Brooke was calling me or Elmo on the phone because she calls both of us Elmo and that is who she said hello to when she first put the phone up to her ear.
We made it over to my sister’s house in time to see her kids run through the wrapping paper to get to their presents. I think I am going to make Brooke do this ‘running through wrapping paper’ thing on all of her birthdays too.
Everyone was quite jolly.
We watched Despicable Me 2. Classic.
And when we got back Brooke scored some more presents. Aka her two best friends.
How did I forget about these babies. I made 40 cinnamon rolls for everybody and we went through them fast.
I seem to keep forgetting that eating lots of cinnamon rolls before a run does not feel good (this has happened too many times to count). My sis and I did a 4 mile run/walk and it didn’t feel very great. Someday I’ll start training hard again.
We had Christmas dinner up at my aunt’s house and it included the normal Christmas food and it was delicious.
My cousin gave me the three best presents: chocolate bar, diet coke and a TJ’s gift card. She knows me all too well.
The beautiful pies that Mer brought. The oreo one on the end won everyone’s heart.
And just like that Christmas is over.
I made it through my first Christmas post divorce… yes, I did clap for myself when I went to bed last night.
What was the best part about your Christmas?
What did you get this year?
Did you run on Christmas?
