Weekend Recap | December

by erin on December 14, 2014 how is it possible it is yet again, December…sigh. I don’t know. I thought I had slowed down. I thought we had, and we each had our goals and have accomplished them! so, we sit here yet again, busier than ever this time of year?

I’m sidelined at the moment and heartbroken I’m not at my parents’ annual Gingerbread party…but I am happy and grateful to have had a fantastic start to our weekend!


Miss E had a very sweet little Xmas party Friday night -


She and her BFF.


Teacher of the year: who came to hang with his favorite 7th graders?

Daddy and Mari enjoyed their first “date” night – her favorite RR and movies at home!


I’ve known these women since Emi was in kinder – they are so much fun:)

This photo says SO much! I am incredibly blessed to have met some amazing women through running! Rocio and I volunteered at Brazen’s Sanborn Trail run and celebrated our dear friend Kumi’s birthday and her first trail run!



I’ve had the honor and privilege of knowing this amazing women and very dear friend now since before Mari was born. And I love her so very much!

She will be streaking next year…so this is her last volunteer event and the time just FLEW by!

After golf and art…we fast forward to miss Mari’s final hip hop performance for the year…


She danced so very BIG as her instructor tells her to do, and this time we celebrated with friends and family!!



And I can’t wait until they get home to tell me all about their Gingerbread masterpieces!!!
