Jeremy had his Christmas party yesterday. He was so cute singing and dancing. He even got to see Santa.

Merry Christmas!

For the first time ever, well the second time, (but the first tree was from The SAAN, and it died the first year). We now have a pre-lit fake tree. I LOVE IT, no vacumming every hour. NO mess. NO sticky fingers from watering and decorating it. Now if I could keep the cats from taking all the decorations off.

"Fear is our only road block; we can accomplish anything we put our minds to."

Shanna, Holly, Sandra, Laura, Andy, Bishop Bitter, Tammy, and Dallas. We are missing a few Cypress people. How cool is it to run a race with your Bishop? His whole family was fast!

This was my first half marathon. It was a great race! At mile 8, I injured my quad muscle, which seized my leg pretty bad. By mile 11, I was in tears, I said a lot of prayers at that point. I knew that with the faith I have, I could finish strong. My time was 2:32, not bad for my first marathon.

Halloween 2010

We had trunk or treat at the church on Saturday, since Halloween was on a Sunday this year. It was combined with Silver Pines ward so the kids got lots of candy.

Rebekah's Appliance

After visiting the Dentist before School started, we found out that Rebekah had a very crooked tooth. It is still under the gum, and she had to have two baby teeth pulled, now we can see it pop up a bit. The appliance will help make room for her crowded teeth. The tooth will then have to be attached to a crain and pulled slowly straight. It's been a big deal, she can't eat anything crunchy or sticky. She is a good sport, I think it will be good to have it done and out of the way before Middle School.

On his way

This little guy is on his way, he will be starting School next Tuesday. We are excited for this new adventure. I love watching my children grow up. Some stages I'll miss, but for the most part I know it's just LIFE. The other kids are all adjusting to School, I no longer have to carry Jacob crying on the bus. Rebekah is in her last year at Elemetary. Russell just started Cubs, he's back at Piano lessons, and Rebekah is playing better then ever.

SeaWorld San Antonio

We went for the full day, from opening until closing. Everyone enjoyed it. Except for when we were soaked at the shamu show, Jeremy screamed for about half an hour after. LOVE THAT PLACE!

Back in School!

Three in School, and Jeremy goes in a month. We have very busy mornings, but once there out the door it's so quiet, Jeremy gets very lonely with out the siblings around:)

JaCoB's Birthday!

Jacob had a great birthday, he had Christopher over and they went and played lazer X.

Jacob's Preschool Grad 2010

Time is going fast, I held Jacob back a year and sent him to Pre K. instead of Kindergarten, well he's done and off to Kindergarten this fall. Jeremy will be attending preschool also, I can't believe how fast the time is flying by. The Preschool is run by high school students which I totally promote, since I did that myself my senior year. Jacob had Miss Steph and Miss Madi, they were great with him.

My first Triathlon: 275 Meter Swim, 13.5 mile bike, 3.3 mile run

I had it on my to do list, but didn't think it would be this year. I had a friend ask me to join her and so I did. It was amazing. Some points of the race were hard. Like running up a hill right after you just biked 13.5 miles, AND I made the mistake of getting into the water before the race, I already had anxiety about the swim, so when I got in to try it out and realized how fast the current was going, and I have to swim it in just a few minutes, totally freaked me out. They announced that anyone who isn't a strong swimmer might want to just do the bike/run, They shortened the swim because it was going to fast, but I didn't back out, I thought I was going to faint, all the blood rushed down to my feet and I just did it anyway. It was over coming my fears and accomplishing this huge goal of mine, I was pleased with my time of 1 hour 40 min. Of course now I want to go and beat my time. Thanks Girls, it was so much fun can't wait to do another one with y'all!!

More pictures - Easter Weekend

The kids loved Mckinney falls, they loved jumping off the cliff, that night we went to a carnival and rode a few rides and played a few games. I didn't know that my kids were so good at playing darts. It's always fun to go away and discover new places.

Russell looses his first tooth!

As you all know, my kids teethed very late, we are still waiting for Jeremy to get a few front teeth still. It has been a blessing because they all have good strong teeth, I guess the later you teeth the later you will loose them. So he will be eight in a few months and finally got his moment.

Jacob's half birthday

Since Jacob has a summer birthday, his preschool makes sure they have a chance to celebrate it during the school year as a half birthday. We ended up spending the whole morning at the school Mrs Whinery invited Jeremy to play along at the playground, and do there letter lesson. It was a fun morning with his class.

San Antonio

We took a break from life here, and drove to San Antonio, we went on the river walk, watched the St. Patty's Parade, went into the museum and on the tomb ride.
