Our Christmas Day..

Hoping you all have had a lovely Christmas day? We have been having a great time. Too much food, not much sleep, lots excitement and quality family time together. Even snow on Boxing day made it just that bit extra special!!

So many fun things have happen over the last few days which really do feel like weeks. Husband and children all home with time off work, school and university. Family visits, baking party cakes, Christmas day and opening presents. Christmas dinner, parents visiting for tea, more food, tasty cakes and drinks. Boxing day out for a party lunch at my mum and dads. More amazing food and cakes and home before the snow arrived. Snow came. Straight out at night to play in the snow in-case it disappeared by morning. More party food. Out to the park in the snow. Walking 3 miles to the shops for a spot of sale shopping. More snowy walks. 2 and a half miles walk around the woods to make the most of the snow. Sit down, heat on, feet up, nice cup of tea, more chocolate!!...

This is my catch up! What have you all been up to?

Sharing our Christmas eve through to Christmas day pictures today...


A present for Santa and Rudolph...



Now I really do need to get back to the gym, the weight is starting to creep on!! but it is still so cold, snowy and icy outside when it is lovely and warm inside..

The Ben & Jerry’s Capture Euphoria Challenge Day 7 And #Runstreak Day 20 !!

Last day of the Ben And Jerry's #captureeuphoria challenge and we have had so much fun in the snow. After educating my kids never to make snowballs or snow angels in yellow snow we have lots of fun pictures to share. For me this one is priceless my 2 youngest having lots of fun sledging !! The smiles on there faces says it all....


To join in some fun and try to win a feature in, Ben & Jerry’s advertising in your neighbourhood upload your Instagram pictures. Today's long run planned didn't work out as well as I would have like. The snow is hard to run in and the lay in didn't help. Not having time for a drink or breakfast off I trotted for my long run. 1 mile to the gym 6 miles on the treadmill (was hard work with no music counting ever second). Then a 2 miles run home!! Leaving me having to finish at 9 miles as I was hungry and thirsty...


Days ran this year 20/20 #runstreak

Miles ran this month 127

Workouts 23

At the end of the contest Ben & Jerry’s will be choosing one lucky blogger who has been asked to take part in the competition as a winner (with the most Euphoric photos) to win a top prize.

Here is todays Euphoria picture-


There has been many of wonderful pictures today of the snow, and lots of wonderful sights of the heavy snow on my run this morning when I didn't have my phone on me to take some pictures. Today the kids hoped the snow had fell to deep so they could have a snow day off school, as this didn't happen they went mad on the way home from school, snowball fighting with each other....

Question : If you (or your family) were to be on the cover of a magazine, which one would it be and why?


Answer: Runner's world....


Me and my family are all Runner's we love to run,spend a hour or two running most day so for me it would be something that we all have a interest in.......


Me running the Mansfield half Marathon 2010....
 

My little two just started running....


My 14 year old runs..... 


My 16 year old runs....

My Husband loves to run too.....

But then again if  VOGUE asked me to do it ,who would I be to turn them down.....

Maybe an interview on my Six items or less challenge.....Maybe not....

We all should have 15 minutes of fame? Make mine a good one .......
Which magazine would you pick?
Have a great weekend ......
