So, I did it! I ran my first 10 k.(6.2 miles) I have been enjoying my running a lot again, now that the boys are a little bigger. Having a treadmill helped throughout the winter, but now that the sun is coming up at a decent hour, I have been getting out most mornings before Matt leaves for work. I have found that it really gets my day off to a good start. Most of you know that running has been a passion of mine for about 10 years, but with the addition of two babies at one time, well, you get the idea. I get that jogging strollers are cool for a lot of people, but I gotta tell you... it was fun with Caleb... One baby. But shoving 2 big babies around in what may as well be a camping trailer for 4.5 miles at just the right time of day, between Caleb's pre-school and afternoon naps just wasn't gonna happen on this home front. Anyway, that doesn't have anything to do with anything... But I finally ventured out and entered a "run". And got the t-shirt. At 6.2 miles, I finished at right at one hour. It was tons of fun, and I look forward to entering more runs for the fun of it. Here are some pictures that Matt took of me running and crossing the finish line... When I met the boys there after the run, Caleb ran up to me and shouted "I'm proud of you!!!"
Entry Fee for Race: $15 dollars
Massage for sore muscles: $50 (in my dreams)
Son telling Mom he's "proud" of her: Priceless. ;o)

So, Caleb made this wonderful "Tato Head", and when he was done, asked if I could get the camera to take a picture of him with his "Tato Head". He said "Mama's proud of me." I, of course, ran for the camera and assured him that I was very proud. Caleb... You are precious.

My wonderful mother-in-law, Vonnie, treated me to the Women of Faith conference this last weekend up in Spokane. I had never been to the conference, but had heard amazing things about it. I really am not sure what I expected, but it certainly would have exceeded anything that I could have expected! It was amazing. The music, the speakers, everything was top notch. I was so blessed. And anyone who knows me well, knows that normally I would shy away from an event that would attract 10,000 women. But really, it was phenomenal. I am looking forward to going back next year, and taking a lot of friends with me!!! I had a delightful time with Vonnie, and was so excited to share the experience with her. She is a true gem, and one that I am blessed to have as a Mom! What a joy! As we walked out of the arena for our lunch break, the sun was shining, and snow was falling. I don't think you can see it in the picture, but it was hilarious. ;o)

Jonah and Noah are really starting to jabber! Way more than these clips even show, but at least you get to hear their little voices! Again, the video is not that exciting, but it's nice to be able to document things with our amazing technology. Enjoy....

Caleb is sitting on the potty ~ Okay, so I get that I am telling a "potty" story. But this is my life. And though being the professional family documentor I am, I must keep it real~
Caleb: I'm all done.
Mommy: Are you sure? 'Cause sometimes we need to wait just a bit, to make sure everything came out.
Caleb, sighs heavily: May I please be excused?
