You are laying on the couch, or sitting in your favorite chair, drinking a cup of something and thinking "ahhh another holiday season is over". Some relief, right? As much as I love the holidays, there is a little bit (or maybe a lot) of stress that goes along.
Sometimes we just need a better answer.
So sit back and let's do a recap of my days:
My buddy has become my barn-cleaning partner. Both of us have a lot of fun. But sometimes you are just too cool for words.
I was on call for Christmas morning. Waiting for the text that he was awake made that morning exciting again.
This was Finn's big gift. But there was no fooling him about how it got there. While looking at the wheels, the lights, everything...he joyfully said "Daddy made this yesterday!" oops.
Learning to pedal his bike first thing...
Not sure why this is out of proportion, but you get the cuteness.
Strumming and singing Twinkle, twinkle, little star......
One of my favorite moments. He LOVES to be a doctor and makes everyone 'better'. Not sure what the prognosis was here....
All I want for Christmas is packaging pillows....
OK how cool is this? My new running map!
8 states done...only 42 to go. Yikes !
While searching through old toys at Nana's, we came across a toy that used to scare Finn and make him cry. (I have no idea why I would keep something like that?!). Anyway, now he loves the hamster. It's his new friend. He put it next to his rocking horse saying "can you see me?" Apparently thinking it can.
Here they are playing a game together.....
After Christmas, the weather held out so Gabriella and I could take our last trail ride of 2019
Now let me preface this. It popped up from my Iphotos. I had no control over the pictures and was unable to edit. You will have evidence of this from some very odd pictures. Hopefully my daughter will forgive me for any that she doesn't care for. My 2019 in photos.
We traveled to my sister Marcia's house for our New Year's Eve celebration with her and her husband, Scott. We started the night with the yummiest of meals in Cannon Beach.
Luckily the dinner was late, so we were closer to midnight and had a better chance of staying awake. Well 3 of us anyway. :). At midnight we were all lifting our left foot so we started the new year 'on the right foot'. Then hugs and the t.v. was off and we were heading to bed by 12:05.
Oh guess what? The toe is healed and I'm running again. 6 miles yesterday. Yay! 2020 is going to be more running for fun and more trail running.
I hope you all started the New Year on the right foot and happily made it through the holidays. If you are still tired....
Hey it's a new year, so make it a new you. Add happiness or calmness, or fun, or adventures. It's all up to you. YOU 2.0
