Best Christmas decorating idea

Christmas Decorations

Serious case of denial

Calvin-Hobbes-Its-Not-Denial-posterI cannot wrap my head around the fact that Christmas is just a few days away. I don’t think I ever caught up with work after returning from Brazil and the nasty head cold I’ve had all week has not helped much either.

There was a time in my life (not so long ago) when I ordered my Christmas cards in September, hand wrote 150+ notes and had them mailed the day after Thanksgiving.  Those days are clearly behind me. I no longer even send cards, my house looks like a bomb went off and I have not started my Christmas shopping. Fortunately the list of items is short and much of it I can get with relative ease, but jeesh. Where did the time go?

Santa Speedo Run video makes the rounds

SSR Never underestimate the appeal of guys wearing speedos.  That is the lesson I learned this week when I saw my Santa Speedo Run video get picked up by a number of national blogs.  I’d like to say thank you to everyone else who was nice enough to share the video, which now has more than 35,000 views.

Toys for Joys party recap

T4JThis past Saturday night the annual Toys For Joys party was held in a new, larger venue.  More than 600 men and women braved a snowstorm to bring gifts that will be given to charities that help make Christmas a little extra special for children in the area.

Thank you to everyone who posed for a picture and to Piper Jo Nevins Photography for letting me swipe a few of their event photographs for the T4J video.

Awkward Christmas photos

Awkward Christmas PhotoWith Christmas little more than a week away we are now receiving a handful of holiday cards each day from friends and family.  We’ve yet to receive any of those ‘awkward Christmas’ photos but I keep hoping.  Feel free to check out this collection of awkward Christmas photographs here.

Santa Speedo Run 2013

On Saturday hundreds of men and women braved crazy cold conditions in Boston to run in the 14th annual Santa Speedo Run.  Happy holidays and Merry Christmas to everyone.  Much thanks to everyone who posed and shared their photographs.
