My Fall

Yup this is as painful as it looks.
This morning I decided to make some great use of the sun shining and go do some running. I have really been enjoying do the running thing for a while now. I have been loving the weight it has been helping me get rid of and the energy it gives me but I especially love being outside so being stuck on the treadmill has been driving a little crazy. All though I have had some trouble with it honestly all in all I can't complain about it, that is until today.
So I got just under a mile and half in on a route that I have run before without difficulties when i found a rough part in the side walk ( stupid side walk). Boy did I go down hard.Knocked the wind out of me, scratched me up pretty good and i was fighting tears immediately. Needless to say My running was brought to an abrupt halt.
I happened to fall right in front of a little girl who was playing in her yard she in turn went and got her mother. The mother was so sweet she went and got a chair for me to sit on for a little bit and seeing the blood running down my leg she also got me some Kleenex and a band aid to but over the heavy bleeding section. After a few minutes when I got my breath back I thanked her , wished her A Merry Christmas and limped away. As I limped down the street a truckful of people noticed me limping and pulled over to ask if I was ok. I of course said I was but thanks for the concern. If Nothing else this let me know that there are some friendly people around my neighborhood.
Before I left I told Ken I was going to go for a run and he in turn said don't get hurt. SO of course I texted him that he jinxed me. HAHA. Well it'sa good thing I don't actually believe in that sort of thing. So I guess I am taking a small hiadus from running for a couple of days but then yes I will be right back at it again.

Christmas parade

Me and My two favorite girl scouts.
Me and troop 1246
Here comes Santa Clause

Wow the first weekend of December was crazy for this family. On the 5th we missed our wards Christmas party because I had signed my girl scouts up for the parade without realizing that they were same night and same time. I was a little bummed about missing the party but the girls had a ton of fun being in the parade.
this years theme was A Whoville Christmas. Everyone had so much fun doing crazy things with their hair and I even had a fun head band in.

Ken's work Party

All the employees of Blast.

I look forward to December for so many reason's. One of which I enjoy meeting with Ken's office for their annual Christmas dinner. One reason for this is while Ken and I enjoy going out for an occasional date this is a guaranteed thing. I also enjoy getting to meet anyone new in the office and their significant others and being able to talk with those I already know. Ken works with some pretty great people. They are all very nice and what is better they all work really well together.
The past few years we have gone to Fats in Roseville. LOve that Chinese food place. However this year we were able to try something very last minute. On December 4th we went to an Italian restruant at the Galleria mall called II Fornaio. It was very good food. I ordered the chicken Tuscana. I really enjoyed it. I couldn't eat it all but I liked it. We sat out on the patio that was completely enclosed and had a wonderful fireplace with the fire going. It made for a wonderfully cozy and relaxing evening with great company.

My girl scouts doing a little caroling

On December 3 My girl scout troop joined with a younger group and went to Prestige to do a little Christmas caroling for the residents there. The girls had the opportunity to be the dinner entertainment. They even had the opportunity to sing happy birthday to one of the ladies living there.
Yes as you can see there are a couple little boys involved in this. Little brother wanted to be involved so we let them .
A great time was had by all. What a great way to get into the spirit at the start of this wonderful month by singing carols and bringing a little Joy to those around us.

"It's begininng to look a lot Like Christmas"

On November 27th my family went out for some family fun. First we went to yo - yo yogurt. Let me say this day was freezing and wet so going to get a frozen treat was a little crazy but everybody enjoyed their treats. Afterwords we went and bought out Christmas tree. This of course is something we all look forward to doing every year. Because it was wet we let stand in the garage for awhile to dry out.
On the 28th we brought it into the house. On the 29th after church and after dinner we turned on our Christmas music and a blast pulling out the decorations. Everyone always has so much fun decorating the tree as well as everything else in and around the house.
