The stockings were hung...

The boys could hardly stand the wait to get their trees up on their room, so we decided we might as well get ready for the Christmas season! 
They love to decorate the tree...
Notice the clumps of ornaments. 

                                                  And, look who came back for a visit the night after we decorated...

And a few days later....
A few more decorations were bought and the rest of the house was complete!
On Sunday, we left to go help Baa and Allen decorate and Zak stayed home to do the outside lights.  It was cold and rainy all day but he powered through and "Griswald the house!"  

 When we got home the kids played outside for a little bit. It was so yuck out!

Happy Birthday to Momma

As usual, today was an awesome day.  I had a nice relaxing day.  Zak and the boys surprised me with gifts (a spa day and two new charms) in bed.  Zak headed to work and the boys and I enjoyed a lazy morning and snow cones for lunch with Amber and her crew.  When Zak got home, he put some new light fixtures up for me and we headed out to dinner with mom and dad at Macaroni Grill.  We finished out the night at the mall clothes shopping for the boys. 
It doesn't sound like much, but it was perfect! 
 A day with my family.  Thats really all I ever want!

Thanksgiving Feast

Today Chase had his Thanksgiving Feast at school.  
Last night, when I put him to bed, he was serious that he was not eating carrots and then when he woke up this morning, he said, "And, Im not eating that lunch meat either!"  
So, Im not sure it was much of a "feast" for him but he had fun!

Run Run Run

This time last year, I couldn't run down the driveway and today, I completed a 5K along side my running buddy, Amber.  I ran the first half mile continuously, completed the first mile in 11:27 and the whole race in 35:07.  
Amber and I are so proud of our accomplishment and I can't believe I've been running 3-5 times a week since April. (There have been occasional hiccups in that time.) 7 months in, and I'm still going strong.  Even stronger now that I know I can push myself and I won't die.  I don't think there will be any marathons in my future, but we're already looking for another 5k to run!
Can't wait to get out there in the morning and push myself.

Last Thunder Game

Colton had such a fun season with team Thunder!  A great group of kids and great coaching.  Colt learned more this season than all the others combined.  I hope he wants to stick with this because he's getting pretty good! 

 And, look who made it to the last game of the season...

Today, was my 5th Trip to The Oil Ranch with Foundry.  Probably, my last trip!  It was Chases last Foundry Field Trip and we had such a great time.  I thought it would be a great fun day just me and my baby, but I'm not sure he even knew I was there.  He was so excited to play with his buddies! I loved watching him and chatting with the mommies.  
Again, I am thankful I can be there for days like this!!!!!
