Post-Christmas Post

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We sure did. It's so crazy how it is such a whirlwind beforehand and just like that, it's over. Here's a little bit of what we did the last few days...

In the middle of an ice storm, we headed over to my parents' house on Sunday for Christmas with my brother and family as they were heading to California for Christmas this year. We also managed to fit in Zeke's birthday since it was cancelled due to a snow storm the Sunday prior.

I pretty much lost count of all the lego sets Zeke got, but has spent the last few days building them all. 

Eight are pictured, but there are at least 3 or 4 more that he has since completed!
We also got a Wii U and it is awesome! Thanks Mom and Dad!

A lot of folks up here lost power (thankfully we didn't), but my parents did for over 30 hours. They were coming over on Christmas Day for dinner, but the problem was that there was a good 1/2 inch of ice on my dad's ramp that needed to be removed before he could get his wheelchair out of the house. I got a good workout and smashed it up with a sledge hammer. Between that, raking the snow of their roof and then moving all the wet, heavy snow, and shoveling the snow that the plows don't remove in front of our house, I've done some serious strength training in the last two weeks.

We made gingerbread cookies for Santa and the boys had a fun time making (and eating) them. 

Apparently Santa liked them as there was quite the haul in the stockings and under the tree on Christmas morning.

My husband got me some really great running gear for Christmas and I had to get out to try it.

It's been snowing again today, so the roads and sidewalks are pretty slick and it was slow going.

I did take a new route and managed 3.4 miles. Now only 8.2 more to go until I reach 500 for the year.
