Sweet 7

So, today was a long run in preparation for the half marathon I am training for. I made the 7 mile mark today. I still can't believe that I ran that far.

The race is February 14, 2009. It is the Surf side marathon/half marathon. My friend Rishelle convinced me to go for it. She will be running the full marathon and I will be doing the half. Thank you so much Rishelle for pushing me every week, and running with me for so long before we go our different directions.

It feels so good to have accomplished 7 miles something I never thought I was capable of. This has also been a great outlet for me and a way to let my emotions subside. Now I am tired and need a nap.

Halloween Festivities

So, we have been scrambling the last week and especially the last couple of days to get costumes ready for Halloween. Finally the first festivities were kicked off this morning at a little party for the kiddos. It was fun to build haunted houses, and for Summer to eat the haunted house. We always love getting together with our friends, and this is even more fun to see them all dressed up.

This is Summer's Haunted House that she ate immediately after the picture.

If you can't tell Summer is Pocahontas, and I am her friend.

Just a few of the costumes.

Having fun.

Anything For a Nap!!

So, in desperation and also just for fun Summer and I built a tent out of her toys and blankets. She needed a nap so badly, but I had to be creative. It still took her a while, but she finally fell asleep in her blanket tent.

It was fun to build with her and of course fun to relax while she slept. Now I just need to keep thinking of these creative things to keep her entertained.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

This is Summer singing to Scott's picture on my cell phone. It seems like an American Idol tryout. She loves to sing as we can tell.
