PF Changs Half Marathon 2011

I did it! I ran 13.1 miles without stopping in 2 hours and 20 minutes! My original goal was to finish in 2 hrs and 30 minutes without stopping and I beat it by 10 minutes! YEA! Oh my gosh I was so happy! Everyone says you are addicted after you do one and I am. It was a lot of fun! My friend David is one of the best friends I have ever had. He trained with me, motivated me, and stuck with me the entire race! We had a blast running this together! I was pretty nervous because the most that I ran before the race was 10 miles. I can not tell you how accomplished I felt when I ran through the finish line... it was Amazing. There is something about having the people you love cheering you on at the finish. You get this crazy surge of adrenaline and you realize that you can finish this. It was awesome because I did this, I set my mind to a goal and I finished it. This has been a goal that I have wanted to check off my list since I was in high school. As silly as this sounds I got a little teary eyed when I ran across the line. I was just so proud of myself. This past month has been so crazy with balancing family, work, and training and to know that I stuck with this just makes me so happy! Okay okay I am done. Pats Run here I come!

Suns Game

Thanks again for taking us with you! We had a great time! Sitting with daddy watching the game! He had a lot of fun. When the suns would score he would say sink a bucket! haha
Just teasing grandpa like usual!
What a little ham!
Look closely... he has his hand over his heart during the National Anthem. So awesome!
We went to the Suns game last Wednesday with Grandpa, Mimi, Josh, and Britney and it was a ton of fun with Blake... his first game! Talking about his sense of humor... we walk into the suite and the first thing he says is nnniiiiccceee! lol. It was really funny! Thanks grandpa and mimi for taking us with you!

Christmas 2010

After all was said and done Blake was a happy little man. It was very difficult to get him to look at the camera... who could blame him when he has all those awesome toys to play with! Merry Christmas!!

Grandma D came to spend Christmas morning with us. Blake was so happy to have her there with us!

Christmas this year was amazing for so many different reasons. When you have a toddler you really look back and remember how fun Christmas morning really is. Blake is so fun! We walk out of his room Christmas morning and he was so excited to see what Santa brought his way. Before he opened any presents he said Oh I LOVE it! lol. He was so happy and so sweet after he opened each present he said thank you. I love his sense of humor and how smart he is. He uses words like instead and also. Hahah. It cracks me up when I hear my two year old say I want this toy instead mommy. Anyway Christmas was a ton of fun spending lots of time with the family.
