One of our favorite things the last couple of years was watching for the "HOT" Indian and taking our picture with him. Well, I think our "HOT" Indian had his clothes on, and we had to settle for taking our picture with this Indian riding his horse. He only had shorts on, and had bear legs, too cold for me! See what I mean about CRAZY!
Here I am with my cousin Sandy, who has also ran the race with me for the last 5-years. I had put "hotties" in the toes of my shoes to keep them warm, and long story short, I ended up burning my left big toe, and now have a HUGE BLOOD BLISTER from the "Hottie" rubbing and bugging my toes. Yeah, never doing that again!
Here is Kandace and Derek finally getting to the finish line. I was soo proud of Kandace for making it, because the cold her got her coughing from the beginning.
This is another TRADITION, taking a group picture with the TURKEY. We were missing three of our regulars, Cameron, Courtney and Aubs, but should have two of them back next year, and Life Size Bridget will be there for Courtney. We love this tradition, even if I do get alot of grief for making everyone do it, They always ask me if we are signed up, so they must WANT to do it!
So, last night, since we were all together, I asked everyone if we could go downtown and take our FAMILY Christmas Card picture. Yes, it is still COLD, but I have a wonderful family that gave me 1-hour to take the pictures and be done. So much love an support!
Here is Steve and me at the reflection pool. We took our family picture here, but you will have to wait for the card to see that picture.
Casey and Tineke. This is a great picture, maybe they can use it on their facebook.
Kandace and Derek, cute!
More of the beautiful lights on Temple Square.
And the Nativity, it was very COLD, but it was amazing how fast we moved and how much we saw in the hour they gave me.
As we were walking back to the truck, I looked up and saw this wonderous site, and of course had to stop and take a picture.
And we HAD to take a picture in front of the AMAZING tree in the Joseph Smith building. I truly give THANKS for my wonderful family who is willing to run crazy races with me, put up all the Christmas decorations, go Christmas shopping on BLACK FRIDAY, and best of all venture out in the FREEZING cold to take our family Christmas picture. Yeah, I pretty much have the BEST FAMILY EVER! Hope your holidays were great too!
