...I had given up on blogging, you are wrong. I have just been a little busy and little unmotivated to do any blogging. I hope that you enjoy the following and I will try and do a little better during Christmas. Just today, I made my second batch of butter cookies with icing, the kids are officially out of school for break, we have watched some Christmas shows, and I am wrapping presents tonight. So...Christmas has hit the Parker household.

Once again it is that time of year when I want to get a great family picture. I have tortured my three with three DIFFERENT tries at getting the shot. While all of these are wonderful, to my picky eye there is something out of focus on each one of them. I have talked Kyle into one more try - this time without the pressure of the "Christmas" setting. I said that we could wear whatever each of us wants to and just sit on the couch or something. Hopefully, this will take place tomorrow and each of you will receive one in the mail. With that said, when you do get it in the mail you can look at it with more emotion and smile knowing what it took to get THAT picture to your doorstep!

Grammy and Pops came for a visit, and we were not good about pictures. However, we did get some to at least document their visit. We had a great visit, and will miss family at Christmas time.

...and one would have thought it was the greatest thing to happen to the kids. I want all to look at how little snow is on the grass and then think about the fact that they cancelled school for this "snow." The kids LOVED the snow day, but we just smiled because there was so little.

After Shirley left, my parents arrived just in time to watch (and help) me run my first half marathon. It seems a long time ago, but I thought I would go ahead and load a couple of pictures from the race. In case you care, I did well. I ran it in 1 hour 41 minutes and 10 seconds.
Me, about to finish.
Davina and I after the race. We had another friend run with us, but I did not get a picture of all three of us! :( (Notice the matching hats - no, we are not part of a running club unless you count just the two of us a running club! :) )
Now, we are working on another half marathon in Seattle in June.
