    Thanks, It made for a pretty terrible Christmas (she passed away lunch time Christmas day) but it wasn't unexpected, they turned her life support off on the Friday before. I have decided if it's not raining I am going to take DS to the races on New Years day. They have a big family fun race day with free rides, free food and a kids fashions on the field which i will enter him in if he cooperates because he has the cutest outfit (in my sig) Not sure he will be happy getting dressed up two days in a row though

    I'm so sorry Ange...

    We normally don't do anything special on NYE. Normally we're recovering from spending the majority of the holidays over at my parents house.

    Last year I ran a 5K on my own on the treadmill since it was about 15 degrees and incredibly windy. This year I'm doing a 5K down in Chicago with a good friend. It'll be cold, but that'll just make me run faster .

    Ange, I am so sorry. Losing people we love is never easy, but at Christmas time it seems so much harder.


    Carolyn, I LOVE running in the cold. I do a turkey trot every year on the sat after thanksgiving, it is my favorite race!

    Our tradition before we had kids was to walk around looking at all the holiday decorations & lights in everyone's windows, then head up to a small park on a hill where we could see the fireworks display without the crowds. We took a bottle of champagne with us & toasted the new year. We even did it the first two years after Tiven was born, just bundled her up in the sling. The year she turned two, there was no way we could take her out; she wouldn't have gone to sleep and she'd have been crying all night because of it, so we've stayed in since then. Last year Tiven was determined to stay up until midnight; she didn't make it but I woke her up at midnight. She stared at me for a moment like I was a two-headed alien, then shrugged, rolled over, and went back to sleep. I sooooo wish I'd gotten that reaction on video!

    Our New Year's Day tradition is to make a big appetizer buffet & watch the Rose Parade (sometimes twice as it's usually replayed here later in the morning for the sleepyheads!) & then watch the Rose Bowl game. If the weather is nice, we'll go ride bikes because the streets in Golden Gate Park are blocked off on holidays; if not, we'll make a fire & hot chocolate & stay cozy.
    David Letterman is retiring. Such great memories of watching him over the past thirty-two years!

    After our brutally hot summer, I've come to love running in the cold, too. I've done a local Turkey Trot 4 miler on Thanksgiving day the last two years, and try to run with friends at least once a week outside. The thing I hate is being sweaty AND cold...good excuse for coffee afterwards

    My husband is off NYE so we're going to stay home and have a party with the kiddies. We'll eat junk food, play board games, and wait for the ball to drop. I'll probably buy some cheesy party hats and noise makers and the girls will get a kick out of that.

    New Year's Day the girls and I are going ice skating with some friends. And I'm sure I'll still be trying to put this house back together because it looks like a department store exploded in here.....

    I am sorry for your loss.

    We are not doing anything super special. DH's birthday is the day before, so will will do fun things then.
