In the days leading up to Christmas, I got to hang out with some of my favorite people: little cousin Connor, sweet G-ma (we had a great visit), and the lovely lady behind this little project herself!
I also got to go on some errands around town- which of course included a Dr. Pepper run (and a new hat?).
On Christmas Eve, I enjoyed a lovely dinner, but apparently I drank too much wine and wasn't able to make it to church :-) Or so I'm told...
While they were gone, I watched over the presents and ate Santa's cookies. Oops. (And, knowing me, I probably had some more wine)
On Christmas morning, I got to wake up bright and early with the members of the family
crazy brave enough to take part in the annual Christmas morning sunrise family hike up Camelback Mountain. It sure was early (and cold!), but we had a great time- and the sunrise from the top was beautiful! I love that each year somebody (not in our family!) hauls a Christmas tree all the way up there! I wish I always looked this good after a workout..
Thanks again family for helping me feel a little closer to home this Christmas! I had a great time being in two places at once!
