Mini is with her dad in Tennessee this Christmas so allow me to reminisce and smile through this year’s holiday adventures before she departed.
Obligatory hotel lobby photo! I know last year’s and 2019’s photo are around here somewhere!
Special Santa letter! She was beyond excited when retrieving it from the mailbox.
Bet you’ve never seen/heard a girl squeal in joy when getting buttons in her stocking! Mini loves to craft so buttons were on her Christmas wish list. Buttons. Of all things.
Ice skating with Aunt B! My sweet sister was such a trooper to take Mini skating the weekend of my race. She prevented me from breaking anything pre-run, only fell once, and encouraged mini to keep going through the approximately 47 falls of her own! Towards the end of the at least 2 hour icecapades, Mini was bravely traversing the ice alone. Definitely a must do again!
A school trip to the local library for a visit with the Clause’s!
And, finally, a cuddly moment for mini and I. This amazing girl is reading sentences, making friends with everyone, and has the biggest heart! She sings with her whole body and, no matter how big she gets, will always be my snuggle buddy.
Merry Christmas, from Running on Fumes to all my loyal readers! Thank you for blessing my life with your friendship!
I ask you –
Are you traveling for the holidays?
Have you ever received a personalized Santa letter?
Again, may your holiday be filled with love, joy, and a silent night!
