The day has finally arrived!  Woohoo!  After talking about it for months, purchasing it and then waiting for it, delivery day finally arrived!

Baby girl and I were up and moving early this morning due to a Christmas Sale at Macy's.  I was standing in line for my delicious Caramel Brulee latte at Starbucks when an unfamiliar number called.  I anxiously answered and the delivery man said, "Just want to be sure you are home this afternoon.  Delivery is running 2 hours ahead of schedule."  WOOHOO!

We got home and I tried my hardest to hold baby girl off for a loooong afternoon nap.  Needless to say, she fell asleep at the lunch table while I was working on our crockpot meatballs.  3 hour nap is what I was hoping for and she almost made it.  But the delivery guys were just a little too loud.  (How can you not be when delivering a treadmill to a basement??)  So right before they left, baby girl popped up.

So my new treadmill was calling my name from downstairs and I couldn't even enjoy it yet.  But lo and behold she fell asleep on the couch about 1.5 hours later.  So I carried her upstairs and quickly ran down to run the inaugural run before she woke up.  It didn't last long, but a run is a run!

I promised newbie I would take it easy on my first few runs to acclimate my body to the much squishier than outside surface.  Hence the slowness of this run, but no matter what...

(Please ignore the fact that our basement has no ceiling!)

After baby girl called out "Mama" about 100 times, we decided to have a tea party!  So she invited her friends to my bed, ahem I mean table, and we had a wonderful Christmas tea party with Christmas Bear, Christmas Dog, her monkey and Minnie Mouse.

What a great way to end the day!  My little one has always been able to entertain herself.  I cannot wait to see where this imagination of hers is going to take us.  

Here is hoping for another run tomorrow!

AHEM...  just a little Thanks to NEWBIE for the Treadmill.
He feels as if this is a bad gift for Christmas.  He is equating it to purchasing me a vacuum.  I said the 2 do not even compare.  So thank you hubs for buying me EXACTLY what I wanted for Christmas!
