See, even Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus knew where to Celebrate Christmas... under a nice, big Palm Tree! Doesn't that donkey just scream: Mexico?! Hola sand, I'm on my way.
This will be my last entry in 2007, so I wanted to post some Christmas well-wishes:
Mom, Dad, and Sarah - Is someone bringing sunblock? And... yes, Dad... I've got my passport. Love you all, see you tomorrow!
Grandma Jo - Merry Christmas!!! I miss seeing you over the Holidays, but as a fellow beach bum... I know you understand ;) LOVE XXOOO
DCAM Long - Great Card and update. Thanks! Have a great Christmas week. Sorry I missed the trip to Peoria. I love you all!
Noel - Hanging out with you last night was a wonderful Christmas surprise! Thanks so much for coming over, wine and goldfish crackers in tote, to sit and chat with me while I packed. How about you move back to SC?!
Harrison Household - Aloha and Mahalo for the Christmas card... M&G look so grown up. Have a wonderful week together - and don't forget to remove sharp objects from the kid's stockings ;)
Peter - Have a great Christmas, I'll try to send some sunshine from the beach.
Kolb Clan - Enjoy the Holidays! Grace, is there anything left of your gingerbread house?
Robin & Keith - Maybe y'all can celebrate the day with some sandwiches... what's up with you and those sandwiches? ha ha ha
Jennifer & Galen - Happy 1st Christmas of marital bliss.
Casten's (aka Lindsay Gibson and family) - I LOVED the Christmas Card... could Ava be any cuter? I don't think so. The "hair" bow on her little peach fuzz head, priceless! Merry Christmas to you, pass my greetings on the the rest of the Gibson Group.
Leah & Bradley - Another couple who tied the knot in '07... Merry Christmas! Hi to the Pilgrim's for me! Love to all.
Connie and Neil - I'm on a roll with the '07 marriages... Have a great Holiday Week! I don't know where you'll celebrate, but it doesn't matter, I know you're just happy to be together.
Kathy & Dan - I was so excited to get your Christmas card, Sammy looks very cute. Enjoy your time away from T... uh, I mean Power Wellness ;)
T & Michele - Merry Christmas... don't be a Scrooge, T! Oh, seriously I miss the sisterhood.
Austin's - Abby: Christmas Handshake! You are beautiful... thanks for the Christmas card. Your gorgeous smile brought tears to my eyes. Merry Christmas.
Sara and her party-goers - Did everyone recover from the best party of '07?! Thanks again Sara! Kate, Hans, Caroline, Cindy, Brooke, Kenneth, Russell, Trip, Emily, Mike... it was great to see y'all there. Happy Holidays to everyone!
My triathlon friends - Get some rest, eat some naughty foods, have a drink... We'll work it off in '08! I've really enjoyed keeping in touch with all of you, meeting you via blogs, and seeing you at races and in training. I look forward to making many more new friends in the coming year. Happy Holidays to Marit, Elizabeth, Alicia, Amy, Theresa, Sheila, Mary, Frank, Gabriela, Jirka, Danny, Kelly, Katie, Kimberley, Gail, Dean, Jeremey, Brad, Tracy, Bri, Bree, Jenni...
*ps... here's an email I just received from my Dad. AND fyi, he had NOT read the blog yet. Do I know my family or what?!
"Hope you are having fun on your last work day of the year. Can't wait to see you tomorrow in Dallas. Love you and do not forget your passport. And the sunscreen. Hugs and kisses, Dad"
