Merry Christmas!

Christmas this year was very fun; Logan really 'got' it. Although, perpetuating this Santa myth and the whole Elf on the Shelf story is already getting tough and he's only 3! He definitely believes Santa brings the gifts and his Elf (who he named Socks) watches if he's good or bad to report back in every night to the fat man in the red suit.  But so many questions!

But this year was definitely more magical (as hokey as that sounds) than any other year has been.  The only thing he really wanted was cars, even though he has SO MANY but he's so obsessed with Disney's Cars and Lightening McQueen we've been slowly buying all the characters.  My mom and sister's family flew in for the holiday's and it's been great having family here after pretty much doing Christmas by ourselves the past couple of years.

My running was going all right until my long run last week where I ran just a little too fast at the beginning on a cold morning and my calf has been saying not nice things to me every since.  I've strained it a few times over the years and it's so temperamental (and annoying). I'm hoping it doesn't keep me out for too much because I feel like it's been so long since I've had really good consistent training.

Marty got me (and him) a pretty awesome present: tickets to see the Foo Fighters in D.C. on the 4th of July!!

The theme of the day: CARS!

Remember doing this? It's still fun.

That elf costume is, well I have no words. Does Marty know you posted that pic?? ;)

Hope your calf feels better, and merry Christmas to you and yours. :)
