Mosaic Christmas tree (3-D) made by Mom’s artistic and loving hands. Many of the gems come from my grandmother’s jewelry and my mother-in-law’s china. Priceless!
Some homemade goodness (3 different pastas!) made for us by niece Erin – this carbo-loading MUST have a magic PR cooked into it!
Our new treadmill! We had already talked about getting a treadmill, but I hadn’t had time to research to find which treadmill was best for us. The best part of this gift is that Scott surprised me with doing the research, purchasing, AND setting it up! I love the treadmill, but I love the surprise and thoughtfulness the most!!!
Happy MerryThon Half & Jingle Bell Half – two holiday half marathons celebrated with old and new friends. What’s better than a hot cocoa stop at mile 10?
I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season! And here’s to a fun, exciting, healthy, PR kind of New Year – where there are hot cocoa stops just when you need them!!!
