This morning was windy, but it didn't stop us hikers. 3 of my buddies and myself went on a 2 hour hike. The first part was all up hill in the wind. The last part was back down with the wind pushing us. Not sure which was worse, but, it was so worth it!! Came home, showered and took the princess for a haircut (OK, really a trim!). She looks so beautiful! Then, we went to her friends house to trade chanukah/christmas presents. She got p.j.'s and a cozy blanket/pillow from Justice. She's happy. Came home, took my son to get his car, ran to Ralph's to pick up some last minute things and then, took the dogs for a walk. Watched a little t.v. with the princess and then, helped DH make dinner: tri-tip, onion pasta, bread and wine. We actually finished a whole bottle of wine. Lit the menorah and the princess got her present: a flute for her American Girls which she really wanted. She's doing good this Chanukah!!
Now, it's rest and relaxation. I hope all my spark friends are enjoying their Christmas Eve with family and friends. And those celebrating Chanukah, I hope you are enjoying the festival of lights with your family friends. Our family Chanukah is tomorrow! Hopefully, I'll have some pics.
