We kicked off our first weekend of December with plenty of festive fun!
Things started off on Friday with a trip to Swiss Chalet for the famous Festive Special.
Back at home it was time to slip into festive jammies and get busy decking our halls.
Saturday morning I headed out for a chilly & sunny run around the neighbourhood to start the day in the best way!
After that I headed over to our local Running Room to volunteer at the Santa Shuffle 5K. I put on my elf hat and brought my Vancouver 2010 Olympics cowbell to help direct the 1K kids fun run/walk. Santa participated too!
Saturday afternoon we were invited to a Christmas party where I got to see my cousin and her family, who I have not seen in far too long! Unfortunately I forgot to take any picture,s except this one of the food table… but really, that’s what it’s all about, right? (Kidding.)
From there we made our way straight to my Mom’s to hang out with the family for dinner and tree-trimming.
Sunday morning was a long run with the group as usual, followed by another family get-together with more good eats & laughs. Unfortunately no photos so you’ll have to take my word for it!
The best thing about this weekend is that it will be continuing for one more day; I have Monday off for an annual baking extravaganza with Mom. Our weekends are just too busy (as illustrated above!) so we had to set aside a week day. Bonus long weekend? Yes please! Stay tuned for pictures of our sumptuous treats.
