Weekend Recap

It is Christmas countdown! I think I am only working 4 days this week since Avery has a school Christmas thing Friday morning and typically we only have a half day the last day before Christmas break – and then 11 days off!


My Fridays are not exciting these days and consist of a tempo run, after my run I finished wrapping presents. I wanted to go over to a friend’s but did not have the energy to get ready again! Running life πŸ˜‰

I finally took home some water beads from work for the girls to play with (we have a ton from past event decor):


We played in the morning before heading out on errands. I like not having anything to do first thing most Saturdays – I debated doing gymnastics with her in JanuaryΒ  but am being selfish and want our quiet Saturdays longer so maybe in the spring πŸ˜‰

Chad had to go to our rental in the afternoon so the girls and I baked Christmas cookies πŸ™‚ Which is probably one of my favourite Christmas activities. Chloe helped for a bit, then napped then decorated after her nap.

We had an early supper then headed out of town to look at a lights display:

Another quiet night at home for us to get a good sleep before our long run!


We opted for treadmill runs since the trails were icy and we did not ask anyone to watch the girls. So that was our whole morning. I ended up doing just under 25 km when my treadmill stopped and I took that as a sign πŸ˜‰ My Grandma visited for a bit which helped entertain the girls while our runs crossed over (Chad goes to the gym and I run at home).

We went to the rink for a bit then to the playground:

Later we started a puzzle Chad’s mom gave us and ended up finishing it! Not much else to report from our day. Hope everyone had great weekends!
