Christmas Eve 2010

So Christmas Eve was our first solid day in California, our main plan was to get a trial membership from 24 Hour Fitness so we could do some exercise and classes that Jesse's sister-in-law teaches.

So here I was with Stryker in my work-out gear:

 So while the Jesse and his brother were out doing some things (I can't remember what for the life of me...Except that they were supposed to stop by the store and get butter and they got just about everything but that...lol), I helped Jesse's Sister-in-Law (JoeEtta) make cookies with the kids:

 There was a lot of gift-opening for the kids, at several different houses including Jesse's Aunt Donna's and some members of JoeEtta's Family.  We made a trip by Jesse's step brothers house to visit some family and family friends...
Here is a photo of Jesse's Nephew cleaning up all that wrapping paper:

Overall our Christmas Eve was eventful, we did make it by the gym for a short run.
We were exhausted by the end of the night...But it was well worth it!

Hope you all enjoyed the photos & stories of Christmas Eve...Here is my photo for my 365 Project:

This is {again} at the dog park.  Yes, I go there often...Probably too often!  Outside it is still pretty cold, so I thought this piece of holly looked cool -- with a frosty white glaze on it.

I will post more tomorrow!
