The true meaning of Christmas and being sick

Happy Monday! I can’t tell you how glad I am to see Monday. Friday Josh had work off, but unfortunately I caught the stomach bug that’s been going around. It wasn’t horrible, but it definitely made the weekend more low key than anticipated.

I didn’t want to waste the whole day Josh had off, so we showed him the museum of Curiosity because he’s never been. We all had a great time! I mostly sat and watched as the boys played:)

It was soooo windy outside!

Later on, we finished Josh’s Christmas list and now we are both officially done. Josh is the best gift giver ever. I really enjoy shopping with him. On our way home J had one request, ice cream in an ice cream cone. Luckily we have an Iceberg near our house that has great ice cream. Everyone was satisfied(this is their ‘mini’ size)!

Saturday we all took it chill. It was rainy outside so of course I made cocoa and toast for breakfast. I did laundry, Josh and I both planned our lesson for our Sunday class and I did a little grocery shopping. I wanted to make sure to rest so that I didn’t still feel sick this week(lots of fun things planned).

Pizza and Yahtzee to end the night:) Can I be real? Papa John’s really is the best pizza.

Sunday we went to church, taught our lessons where I shared this video…such a good video describing the true meaning of Christmas, gives me chills! Then we headed to Josh’s parents for dinner.
After our tummies were full we drove to Temple square where they cover the whole grounds with Christmas lights. It’s incredible!

As we were driving to see the lights we passed by a huge group of homeless people making their way to the back of a Suburban. A family had filled the back of their car with what looked like a very hot dinner and they were handing out to anyone wanting it. It was such a sweet example to me of what this season is truly about. We can all do something for someone=)

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.

  1. I’m going to guess that you haven’t had a lot of really great pizza…because Papa John’s is not it!! But growing up in Chicago, I’m very biased. I’m sure New Yorkers will say they’re biased as well on their pizza 😉

    I’m not a huge fan of boardgames… I hate Monopoly, but I don’t mind Scrabble or Scattegories (does that count?)

    Hope you’re feeling better!! I had a stomach bug two weeks ago – it was NOT fun!

  2. Sounds like a great weekend! I’m not a big board game person either, but candy land was always a favorite!
