Friday Follies

Haven't been very active this week. Did my two strength workouts this weekend and that's about it.

I had a Wii party at the house for my colleagues on Tuesday afternoon. I came home early to put some food out only to find our Christmas tree laying on the floor amidst a pile of shattered glass ornaments. :(

I wouldn't have bothered to post at all, but I have been tagged by Cindy, so I'll give it a go. I'm not tagging anyone 'cuz I don't want any of you to get my icky cold virus germs. I am to post five random things about me that you may or may not know. I've chosen to stick to a theme of Christmas Eve traditions.

1) Honey Nut Cheerios is the reindeer food of choice that my family puts out for Santa's flying friends.

2) Our kids get to open one gift on Christmas Eve. It always turns out to be new pyjamas.

3) We put out luminarias and also enjoy driving around other neighborhoods looking at them.

4) At the Christmas Eve candlelight service at church, we sing "Silent Night, Holy Night" while lighting candles. It always makes me cry.

5) I make the traditional New Mexico posole and tamales meal for Christmas Eve, but I don't care for either.


  1. Wow! I'm finding the PJ thing to be popular! Didn't know that until this year :-)

    Thanks for not spreading your ickiness!! LOL!!

    Two strength workouts is two more than I've done in the last 18 months!! Way to go :-)

  2. Lisa, you play Wii? For some reason that surprises me LOL I'm actually off to buy one from DH and I tonight :P

  3. Sorry about the tree. Nice set of Christmas traditions! I'm not sure we have anything we can really call a tradition...maybe we need some.

  4. Oh the ever horrifying Wii party :) question is..did the person who knock the tree down win? :)

  5. Hope you get better real soon. And a very Merry Christmas to you!

    You are indeed blessed with beautiful kids. I hope when mine are that age they will still let me post pics of them. :-)

  6. I think that is what I mostly got the kiddo this year, a bunch of WII games..

    Happy holidays and you can never go wrong with pajamas.

  7. Sorry to tag you during such a busy week! It hasn't been as hectic around here since were staying in town this Christmas :)

    Our kids also always get a pair of pj's every year, and I also make the traditional NM meal for Christmas Eve when we're home. I actually love it.

    Hope you have a great Christmas!
    P.S. Jeff and I signed up for the 5K/10K trail run on New Year's Day that you told me about :)

  8. I love Wii! Especially the bowling.

  9. I spent 6 years in New Mexico. I loved the luminarias. Thanks for the nostalgic picture. hmmmm posole. yum.
