In my brain, apparently getting in the Christmas spirit means holiday food isn't taboo. Even with having the time to run every day (now that I'm almost officially on vacation), it's not keeping off the holiday weight.
On a completely unrelated note, we made some Christmas cookies last night! Dan, my sister, Cheryl, and I made cut-out sugar cookies and decorated them with homemade icing and sprinkles.
Mine are mainly the ones that are just a solid color with some sprinkles on top. I don't have the time or patience for the cute designs the others do. They taste just the same when you eat them.
