Christmas Day 2012

Who thinks Santa should use Flamingos to pull his sleigh instead of stinky reindeer?  Me! Me! Me!

After Christmas Eve at my Mom's I went home to hang with Jabba and wait for Santa Paws.  He woke me up bright and early the next morning (5:11 am) to open his presents eat.  I went back to sleep until around 8 am and then we opened his presents.

Per Mommy's 3 Present Rule, Jabba got some new catnip, a new mint toy (like catnip), and a new food bowl set!! 

He could care less about the new food bowl set though.  It was more of a "Mommy needs the house to look cute" present than a "Jabba will love this present". :)  Merry Christmas Jabba!

After I gave Jabba his presents, I got dressed and headed to Pearland to spend time with my family.  My Aunt Laura and Uncle Roger (my Mom's younger brother) hosted a Christmas lunch at their house full of Texas style BBQ!  Ribs, pork chops, chicken, sausage, beans, black olives (!!), and tons of other stuff.  I was soooo full by the time I left!


Cole and Paw-Paw having fun together.

After I left Pearland, I went home to spend some quality time with Jabba on Christmas.  He hung out with me for about 10 minutes, then decided that he wanted to take a nap.  His life is soooo hard and tiring you know?

My presents! 

Serving dishes and a salt/pepper set from my Uncle Mark!
 Awesome socks from my awesome friend Krista!  I can't wait to wear them on a training run or at another race!
 Purse from my Mom and Dad that they got in Atlantic City.

Love this!  My Uncle Mark and Aunt Kay that live in Florida gave me a subscription to either a running magazine or Women's Health.  I haven't decided which one yet, but I think I am going to go with Women's Health Magazine!!!  Soooo excited about this.  I have been wanting to get a subscription for awhile now, but I haven't done it yet.

Guess who got a camera for Christmas!!!  Guess who won't have bad pictures for her blog anymore?!  This girl!!
 Casserole dish carrier with my initials on it from my Dad and Stepmom Pie.  Isn't the pattern cute?
 Lots of different gifts in this picture!  Body lotion from Steven and Lauren, Lifesaver book from Mom and Keith, Shower Gel and Lotion from Grandmother, Academy gift card (for running stuff) from Grandmother, Starbucks and Shell Gas card from my Mom and Keith!!  I also got some money from Maw-Maw and Paw-Paw and Uncle Wendall and Aunt Kay that isn't pictured. :)
 Did you know that I love Flamingos?  You didn't?  Well, I do!!  This is from my Dad and Stepmom Pie for my porch.  It's really heavy medal.

So, as you can see I got tons of stuff for Christmas!  I am so thankful for my family and all the blessings God has given to me this year.
