What We Got For Christmas!

Hope you all had the merriest of Christmases!! We sure did! We really had a great Christmas, and it was really nice to gather with friends and family for a few days to celebrate. Good friends, good food, good beer, and good running. Can't get any better than that. It was a really nice few days off for Ryan, and Miss Bethany is lucky enough to have all the way until January 4th off! Lucky girl! We also got in a couple good runs (and one that was not so good, for Ryan, anyway.) So here was our Christmas in pictures . . . .

10 miles with the KRDP on Christmas Eve, sealed with a smooch.

Ginger, the Dog Who Loves Christmas [Food].

Ryan's face when Miss Bethany opened her special present. See below.

Deborah Lippman 'Happy Birthday' designer nail lacquer. Basically confetti glitter nail polish, and Miss Bethany LOVES glitter, confetti, and crazy nails! See below.

Miss Bethany and her confetti glitter nail polish. A little blurry, but you get the idea.

Miss Bethany's nephew, not so sure about the talking Night Before Christmas Bear.

Christmas night at Miss Bethany's parents' house.

YUM! Thanks Erika!

Miss Bethany's new pink I <3 Running bottle.

Ryan's new books. He LOVES to read, and has a complete man-crush on Lance. See below.

He loves Lance. So does Miss Bethany. How can you not?

Miss Bethany and her butterfly and flower paper cut-outs. She's so crafty. That's right ladies, Ryan picked them out all by himself.

Miss Bethany bought Ryan the sweetest clock: 'Love is cheering from the sidelines, TRUE Love is crossing the finishline together!'

Ryan bought Miss Bethany four pairs (three shown) of lovely earrings from Be Jeweled in Downtown New Bedford [very nice little place]. That's right ladies, Ryan picked them out all by himself.

Miss Bethany bought Ryan a core stability disk. Ryan MUST work on his core in 2010. It is his primary New Year's Resolution. Be sure to check out our upcoming post on New Year's Resolutions and Goals for 2010!

Ryan bought Miss Bethany an LL Bean Sleepytime Snuggler. She loooooves him! [and talking on her Blackberry of course].

So, that was our Christmas, in pictures. As you can see, we love Christmas almost as much as we love each other! We had a great holiday, and we hope all of you did too! So now Disney Marathon is LESS THAN 2 WEEKS AWAY! Time to taper, rest, hydrate, and prepare mentally! We are so excited!

Awww... what a nice Christmas! I love the clock- it's perfect for the two of you! Ryan is great at finding good girlie gifts!

I also love your Snuggler. I can't resist soft, fluffy stuffed animals. Your real snuggly dog is beautiful, too.

I'm glad you had a wonderful Christmas together! Enjoy your taper time. :D

What a great Christmas, I love your sparkly polish, how fun! I can't believe your marathon is almost here!

Colleen said...

Could you two be any cuter? I think not. Looks like you had an awesome Christmas, and nice job Ryan on all the girly gifts :)

Running Diva Mom said...

That clock is perfect for you two! I love following your journey together!

Where is the water bottle from?? Too cool.

Happy holidays!!

Bethany + Ryan said...

Haha, happy holidays all. . . Ryan got the water bottle from lululemon. :-)

Enjoy the taper as much as possible. Have you run Disney before? I enjoyed it both times except it was hot both times, which is not good for my running. You asked if I have run Boston before, no - this will be my first time. Excited! Good Luck @ Disney.

Marlene said...

Looks like you had a great Christmas and both got SPOILED! Love all the loot.

MCM Mama said...
