My first 10k run!

I ran my first 10k yesterday.

I can barely walk today.

I have been training for a couple of months to run in London's Run in Queen Creek, AZ.  I figured it would take me about 1 hour and 20 minutes at the pace I have been running on the tread mill. 

I was very excited and surprised when I finished in less than an hour!

Here is a link to my picture from the run .  Don't laugh, I was just finishing running 6.2 miles.

It was a challenge but lots of fun too.

Valentines Craft

I found this cute Valentines craft Idea on The Creative Crate. This blog has so many cute craft Ideas.

It was super easy to make. My friend Megan cut the wood for me, and I used her cricut to cut stencils for the letters and the heart.

Go check out The Creative Crate. I'm sure you will be inspired too.

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year! We sure did! We even had snow for Christmas! It just doesn't seem like Christmas without snow.

I love the snow lady the kids made.

She's got style!

Jacob's Birthday


Our blue eyed boy turned 7 today!

Wow, time flies.

Jacob is such a sweet boy. He is loving the 1st grade and is an excellent student.

He loves video games and is enjoying the Wii we got for Christmas.

Jacob is such an obedient boy. He is always getting rewarded for being the first one to obey when we ask the kids to do something. (It drives the other kids crazy).

He is a lego master and he gets very upset when someone breaks his creations.

You can often find him standing or spinning on his head or crawling accross the floor. He doesn't hold still for long.

We love you Jake. We are glad you are ours.

9 year old fashionista!

I'm catching up! One more post and I am moving on to Christmas.

Natalie turned 9 on November 7, 2009.

She asked for; brown boots, black boots, and black Sunday shoes. What are we going to do when she is a teenager? This shoe obsession, where does it come from? Her Dad?

She is growing into a lovely young lady. I am always amazed at how creative she is. She loves making things for other people and can often be found in her room working on her latest project.

It is lots of fun having a girl around that likes to shop and craft.

By the way, she is already asking to wear my clothes.

Seriously girl, you are only 9!
