the best way to spread christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear~

We got around 18 inches of snow here near Philadelphia.
We took Nick out and he wasn't too thrilled - he did not smile until we made it back in the house!
I think everything is more fun with a child so the snow was just that much more exciting having Nick around and taking him to the window and outside in the snow, something I normally would not have done!

Yesterday was a really fun day overall!
I made some whole wheat bread for Nick's sandwiches - he's a big fan of hummus on bread,
and we went outside twice. Today I made some coffee cake and we took him out sledding (though the snow was way too soft) so it turned into pulling him around.


I was supposed to meet Rebecca today for a run but the snow changed up our plans - hopefully soon we'll meet up for a run! Yesterday in the afternoon I did 7 miles on the treadmill - it was ok. This morning I did 7 and it felt GREAT. I need to finish about 2 more miles to get to my 30 miles for the week, so I'm hoping I 'll get that in this afternon!

In the meantime - here's Nick's Santa picture!
He sat there very serious looking and after about 2 minutes he cried.

  6. He's at the age where he knows what's going on and is legitimately freaked out. Norah is too young to understand it yet, so I figured it was our one chance to get a non-crying pic on Santa's lap.

    Love all the snow. I miss it this time of year. Have fun playing in it!

  16. Cairn totally freaked out when he saw Santa! He clung to my neck most of the afternoon :-) I know it's wrong, but I couldn't stop laughing :-)
