Merry Christmas from the Cripple! :)

I promised some pictures from this past weekend, and I'm sorry I'm just now getting around to it.  Things have been a little crazy with the holidays. :)

All of the pictures from below are from Friday night.  My friend Emily had some of us over for a little birthday party.  We had some snacks, wine and a lot of fun playing this really cool game called Smart Ass.  Seriously - I have to buy this game now.  It's such a good time!

My big surprise is of course the Christmas lights on my crutches!  I'm going to try to get a better picture with them, but the two I got will show them off again.  Thanks again to Love to Run for sending me these.  I SO appreciate it.

Saturday night we went to do Christmas with my mom's best friend she grew up with and her whole family.  They're pretty much like family, and we always do a big dinner with them each Christmas.  I don't have any pictures from that.

Sunday we drove to Manchester to my great aunt and uncle's house to do Christmas dinner with my dad's entire family.  (He has five brothers and sisters total, so his side of the family is quite large!)  I ate a LOT of food.  I'm already getting tired of depending on other people to fix my plate and get me drink refills and stuff, but I should be almost halfway done with my time on the crutches (fingers crossed).

I'm getting ready to head to my mom and dad's to spend the night over there.  My mom is an only child, and her parents have always come to our house to spend the night.  We'll have dinner, watch a Christmas movie, and then be up way too early to open presents in the morning.

I'm trying to prepare myself... I won't be helping hand out presents with my sister like I usually do.  I will also be opening some running related gifts that I won't be using any time soon, but I'm still excited to be getting them.

I hope everyone has a very merry Christmas.  My posts may get a little less frequent, but I'll be back and will share more pictures and stories soon!
