Enjoying 2 Kids

I haven't had a normal post in awhile it seems with pictures of my babies. We have lots of updates with the family but I don't care, I just want to say how much I love my boys.
I guess since it is getting closer and closer until our baby girl comes, I want to savor my boys and suck up every moment with just them until then. Blake and Kade are two of the funnest boys out there. Sometimes they drive me crazy and I wish they were a little less energetic because they wear me out, but really, I am so thankful for their energy. They make me so happy, and literally make me laugh multiple times a day. I love you my babies.

We were at my parent's house and Kade found one of Heidi's wigs for Halloween. Are we looking into the future of what Kylee will look like?? He thought it was the funniest thing that he is a boy and had "girl hair."

Kade loves to "read" books. Actually they both do, they always ask if they can sleep with a book to read. Adam took this picture of Kade actually making up stories to the pictures he saw. Too cute.
We took the boys to Chik-fil-A to play in the play place one night (we are so cheap, we actually bring them food instead of buying it there. Then we get ice cream after) This is Blake showing us how awesome he is at winking. ;)
He is just cute. Gosh I love my kids.
And I love how Heidi looks like she is going to hurt him for stealing her french fry. :)
A month or two ago when Jen cut my hair she told me she wanted to straighten it this time. And here is the result. I went to church and no one recognized me at first.
Update on Mrs. Preggo:
Everything is still going great! I have made it to 34 and a half weeks and I am counting down the days and hoping she joins us a little early so it isn't so close to Christmas.
I am no longer running. :(
My goal was to run until 30 weeks, and I made it to 32. The boys and I are walking now, and I am so glad. I can walk more distance than I could running. I still have a goal to do London's Run. I won't be able to do the half marathon again because I won't have enough time, but I am aiming for the 10k. It is January 29, 2011, so that gives me roughly 6 weeks from my due date. I hope I can do it.

A Very Worthy Cause

I am sure some of you have heard of the wonderful Payne family who has suffered so much in the last month and a half. I have been wanting and wanting to post something about it for awhile now but every time I go to do it, I just get too emotional.
You see, I know Tom and Joy Payne.
I know them as Brother and Sister Payne.
I think I was about 14 when they moved into our ward in Mesa. Joy was called into Young Womens and was one of my leaders up until I graduated. She is amazing. Tom was in Young Mens and we all knew just how cool he is.
She would have us over at her house to hang out, and was always there if you needed someone to talk to. I can't even tell you what a good example she was to me when I was a youth. I never even told her what an impact she had in my life.

When I got the call from my dad about little Jaxon, my heart just broke, and continued to brake each time I thought about it. Then to know the hardships they have had with their youngest Easton and his medical issues, my first thoughts were "Why them?"
At Jaxon's funeral I was reminded again at how amazing Tom and Joy are. They spoke together and gave the most beautiful eulogy I have ever heard. They spoke of the love our Father in Heaven has for each of us, and were so strong.
Now I hear of just how much they are going through right now, and I wish there was some way for me to help. When Lana Shumway (another leader I had in Young Womens, I know I had the best leaders ever!) posted a pledgie account to help them, I knew we could maybe help just a little.
So now I am putting it here so all of you can read their story and hopefully help in any way you can. Please know how amazing this family is and how much help they really need.

Here is the link to their Pledgie Page

Thanks friends.

My Own Special Miracle...

The last two weeks of my life have been one word.....stressful. Ever since my last doctors appointment (you know, the one where he said I'm huge!) I had been worrying and worrying and even more worrying. I was so focused on the fact that my baby may not be okay that everything else in my life was just stressing me out.

The doctor had told me that I may have too much amniotic fluid, and after looking up what that actually meant I was even more worried. Too much amniotic fluid could cause birth defects and all sorts of other complications that frankly freaked the crap out of me.

Monday night my parents drove all the way out to my house (they really are some amazing people if you don't know them) for dinner and so my Dad could help Adam give me a blessing before my appointment the next day. My sweet husband (with the help of the lord of course) gave me the sweetest blessing and I immediately felt peace come over my body (why didn't I get one sooner!).

The time for my appointment came yesterday and though I was still a little nervous for what news I would receive I knew that I would be okay with whatever it was. First things first, they weighed me, I lost a pound. Odd, thats never happened to me this late in pregnancy before. We wait for what seems like forever in the ultrasound room for the doctor (though it was really less than 10 minutes). The doctor comes in and measures me. I am smaller than when he measured me two weeks ago. 2 weeks ago I measured at 29 weeks, this time 28 weeks. I am officially right on track the doctor tells me. How the heck did my body get smaller when I should only be getting bigger?

Then the doctor does the ultrasound (she is still a girl) and does all of her measurements. She is EXACTLY the size that she should be at this point in my pregnancy. Usually you will have a couple of days difference between your menstrual due date and your fetus due date (estimate of due date based on the size of baby). Nope they were the exact same day. The doctor then tells me that I am an example of a perfect pregnancy. What a change from my last appointment.

I KNOW that the blessing that I received on Monday from my hubby and dad made this miracle for us happen. I am so thankful for the priesthood and to have it in my home with me at all times. I am so thankful for my husband and father who are worthy priesthood holders and could bless me in such a way to heal my body and make whatever was wrong before go away.

I KNOW the Lord will bless us if we ask and have faith in his power.

We have finally made progress on both the boys room and the baby room!!! I finally don't feel stressed out about it anymore. After almost 3 years in our house we have finished the boys room! It isn't how I wanted it, but at this point I am just happy it is done!
We went with an old car theme, so I painted the room black and white and then we threw up some color with the different car pictures. The cars above are actually lights which is really cool but I wish they were battery operated so that the cords weren't hanging down. We are thinking about just cutting the cord off and not using them as lights. We'll see. All I need to do now is touch up the chair rail with white paint.

Kylee's room still isn't done, but it is close. We still need to paint her dresser, hang a couple more things and get the bedding on, but the paint (thank heavens) is done. I decided against hanging the letters with ribbon because, well frankly, I was just to lazy to do it. Leaving the ribbon on the letters and putting them up how I did was so much easier for me. I know I'm lazy but I like it and I got the stamp of approval from that husband of mine so we are all good.
A very special THANK YOU goes out to my bro. in law Garrett for deciding to come over at 10P.M. and work until 2:30A.M putting up the chair rail in both rooms. You rock Garrett!! We couldn't have done it with out you (and mostly because you provided everything but the chair rail) :)

Am I Going To Be Like Violet From Willy Wonka?

I had a doctor's appointment yesterday. It didn't go as well as I had hoped. You see, throughout this pregnancy my belly has been measuring about 2 centimeters bigger than it should. Not a big deal, 2 centimeters isn't that much. Yesterday however, the doctor measures me and says "well you are still larger than normal." I say, "well how big?" He says, "you are 25 weeks and 2 days and you are measuring at 29 weeks."
What the!?!?!?!?!?! I am 4 WEEKS bigger than I should be!
He then proceeds to ask me a bunch of questions which starts to worry me.
Were you bigger than normal with your other two pregnancies? No I measured exactly on with both.
Have you been gaining too much weight? No I am right on track.
Questions questions questions!
Then he tells me, well we would normally see you back in 3-4 weeks to do an ultrasound, but I want to see you back in 2 weeks so we can make sure everything is ok.
What the heck am I supposed to think of that?!
He didn't seem too worried, and didn't even tell me I needed to stop exercising or anything, so now I am just confused.
I have a bigger belly than I should, does that mean I am going to be like Violet from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and by the time I am ready to deliver my husband is going to have to roll me in to the delivery room? I have that image burned into my brain.
So here I am in my jumbo (apparently) belly at 25 weeks and 3 days. It's kind of embarrassing having my belly out for the whole world to see. Oh well....

In other news, the boys and I made a life size robot out of mega blocks. For some reason they have really gotten back into the blocks. Its been cars cars cars for so long, that I welcomed the change!

Boys posing with their robot, and Kade making the famous myspace/facebook face. Poochy lips.

On a Lazy Sunday Evening....

Now that we FINALLY don't have 2 o'clock church anymore, we can enjoy lazy afternoons together as a family (we had 2 o'clock church for almost 4 years!). I love coming home from church and just relaxing with the family. So yesterday we got out the Mega Blocks, and started making "rockets" and "blasting" them off around the room (sorry kids destroyed them before we could even get a picture of them, darn boys!) Then Daddy decided to pull out all our coins and make a pyramid. He said when he was little him and his brother used to make really cool pictures out of pennies. Neither on of us is an artist so we had to settle for just a boring pyramid. The boys loved it though, they thought it was the coolest thing ever to "play" with money. So here is a picture of our little penny pyramid, my belly poking out, and my naked boys. I swear it is a full time job to keep clothes on my children. Is it a boy thing, or are my kids just weird???

Okay so obviously these pictures are not from Sunday but a few days before. After getting home from our run the other day, we were all sweaty so I pulled out the sprinkler and we all cooled off, and by all I really mean all of us because the second the water came on both kids grabbed the sprinkler and chased me with it completely soaking me and making the dog run like 90 miles an hour to get away from them.
Blake is getting so big, I can't believe in one short year I will be sending him to kindergarten. That will be a sad day for me. I want him to grow up and learn, but I also want him to stay little and snuggle in my lap.. Oh the sorrows of your kids growing......
And last but certainly not least....I am so excited to show ya'll part of the bedding for Kylee's room. So since I decided on different colors for her room, I could not find any bedding that matched what I wanted. So my wonderful, beautiful and most talented mother said that if I wanted she could make me her bedding. So off we went to the fabric store and I picked out all the fabrics that I wanted and told her how I wanted it to look. And she did it! And I am so in love with it. My mom and dad went out of town this weekend for their 34th wedding anniversary (go them, they are amazing!) and she made it while they were gone. We had them over for dinner yesterday and she brought it to show me. I about died I was so happy with it. My mom is so awesome, and I am so thankful for all that she does for our family. So here it is......

Thanks Mommy I love you!! You are the best!

Getting Started

First and foremost, I had to post a picture of my super cute boys (and yes I mean Adam too!). Aren't they just the most adorable?! I heart them.
Some of you may know that I don't like to wait until the last minute for things. I am not a procrastinator because it just makes me stress out. So as soon as we found out we are having a girl, I wanted to get to work before I get too big and can't do anything. So here are a few pictures of where we are at right now.
I decided on Black, white and hot pink. Not sure why I did except that I wanted her room to be different from nurseries I have seen. Yes the hot pink is bright, I know, it took some convincing for Adam to be on board (in the end he said I could do whatever I want....he he he).
So here is a shelf we had that I sanded down and painted black, and then some hot pink flowers that will go on the shelf (once its hung of course).
This is a trial and error point. We know we want the letters with ribbon. I am not sure if I want the ribbons how they are shown in the picture or if I want to hang the letters on the wall from ribbon. I don't know, I welcome ideas from you crafty people out there.

And here are the walls. The bottom will be hot pink and the top will be white. We haven't decided if we are going to put a black chair rail between the 2 colors or if we will paint a horizontal black stripe around the room. I originally started painting the black stripe but then Adam said we should do a chair rail and painted over the black stripe. Now we can't decide. Anywoo, we have lots still to do and we are still finishing up the boys room as well. Hopefully both rooms will be done before the baby comes.
A special thanks to my wonderful hubby who handles my OCD's so graciously even when it means getting everything ready for our baby 4 and a half months before we even get to see her. Love you babe.

Will She or Won't She?

(ummmm, yikes)

So now that we know we are having a girl, this is the question I have been asked the most:
"So are you hoping she has curly hair like you?"
To which I lovingly reply: "Ummmm, no."
Do I love my hair? No.
Do I like my hair? No.
Do I tolerate my hair? Sometimes
I know lots of people "say" they would love to have curly hair, but frankly, I just don't believe them. I must admit that for the majority of my life I did not have the faintest idea how to do my hair, so I am sure that is why I am so against it.
Oh the awkwardness of my childhood, and my crazy hair. I hated my hair so much that I had a stage that lasted a few years I am sure where my hair was just in a bun.
The pictures I could show you would prove my point nicely, but alas, I am too embarrassed to even look at them myself, let alone let others see them.
I think to myself, "why would I wish that self esteem issue on my child?"
I know it would be cute to see a little girl with bouncy curly hair and a bow, and I know that I kinda know how to do it now, but I am just imagining her coming to me (like I did to my mom) begging to spend tons of money to get it straight, and trying anything you can imagine to get it that way.
And by the way, I am not convinced that my boys aren't going to have curly hair either, especially Kade. My brothers' hair didn't go curly until they hit puberty. Kade is a Martin (my family name) through and through, and I just see him with freckles and curly hair just like me, and I am okay with that. I am okay with my boys getting my hair, because a boy with a fro is just cool.
So my dear Kylee, if the good Lord thinks you need to have curly hair, then I will do everything I can to make it cute, so you don't have the issues with it like I did, but if you get straight hair, then I am good with that too. Love you baby girl.

Well Its Official

We went to the doctor today and he told us we are having a......................


We are very excited and kind of relieved because everyone was kind of expecting a girl at this point.
I was a little nervous to find out because I didn't want anyone to be disappointed (even our boys were aching for a girl). Adam and I were totally fine with whatever, I am just thankful to be able to bare children when there are so many out there who cannot.
I think I was expecting a boy though because when he said she was a girl, I was a little shocked. I can't be more excited though, we are all very happy.
So now I've got to figure out some way to be crafty and make hundreds and thousands of cute little bows and whatnot.
Jen, don't be alarmed if I come to your house and MAKE you teach me how to do it.
And as you can see to the right of the screen, we have already named her. I had this name picked out when I was in high school, but never really thought it would stick with Adam. I was wrong. He has been dead set on this name for our first girl since we got married. Welp, 7 years later and we can finally use it.

What Happens When I Leave the Room for 2 Minutes

And My husband wonders why I hold my pee until the last minute.

Thursday, June 24, 2010

Happy Anniversary to Us!

Lots of happenings in our neck of the woods this summer. Blake "graduated" from his first year of preschool and I have pictures, but they are on Adam's phone, so I can't access them at this time. Our camera went to the crapper and we haven't gotten a new one yet, so all pictures are taken with our phones. Thank Heavens for technology.
Anyhoo, Adam and I celebrated 7 blissful years of marriage on the 14th, and this year we decided instead of ditching our kids the whole time we celebrated, we would take them with us for part of it. Adam made reservations at the Arizona Grand Resort and we had a wonderful time as a family.
This is the view of the big water park they had right outside our hotel room, complete with 2 huge water slides, lazy river, wave pool, regular pool, toddler pool, and splash pad. Ya, it was awesome. We stayed at the toddler pool most of the time because the boys we just having a ball.

For some reason, everywhere we go, one or both Adam and I will see someone we know. Well there was no exception this time, a friend of mine from Junior High was working when we showed up and she lovingly supplied our hyper boys with more sugar! They were in love with their Icees and we were even more excited that we didn't have to pay 7 bucks each for them. (Hotels are ridiculous) Thanks Jessica!
After partying all day at the pool, we were all tuckered out, so we got in our jammies and vegged on the pull out couch until Adam decided last minute to take the boys to the Sea Life Aquarium at AZ Mills. I was literally falling asleep on the bed when he said lets go!
So quickly did he decide to go, that I had to get dressed and rush out the door, the boys stayed in their jammies and I am sportin a no makeup look, but it really didn't matter, they had so much fun and that was the point!
Ya, this is a tunnel completely surrounded by water, and I am not going to lie, I was breathing hard walking through it. I am extremely claustrophobic, and my worst fear is drowning, and then add in sharks and stingrays in the water, I was freaking out a little. The boys as you can see couldn't care less and sure did lay on the floor while people were trying to walk through.
The boys enjoying the Stingrays and the Hammerhead sharks.
If any of you know Blake, you know that he LOVES water animals. He can tell you the difference between whales, can name a lot of the different sharks, fascinated by stingrays, and always wants to talk about fish. He kept telling us that he was hugging the stingrays through the glass. It was so cute. The other day while we were in the car driving (kids always say the funniest things in the car) Blake told me, "Mommy, when I grow up and turn into a fish, I am going to make sure I have a stinger on my bum." To which Kade replied "Bumblebees have stingers too! I'll be one of those." Totally random but made me laugh so hard. Gotta love the randomness of children's brains.
We had a lovely time for our anniversary, and I am so glad we spent it as a family. I am so thankful for the crazy life we have together. My husband is amazing, and I could not be happier. I never believed it when people told me that I would love my husband more the longer we were married because I thought I loved him with all of my capacity, and at the time I did. But my how your heart grows each year and each time you add a child to the family. The Lord sure has blessed us immensely in our marriage, and I often wonder how I got so lucky.
I love you baby, Happy 7 years! I can't wait for the rest of Eternity.

I Am Still Alive

Yes, I am the worst blogger. I haven't had the energy to do a whole lot of things, especially writing about it. When I first found out I was prego, it was awesome because I didn't get sick right away, and I was still feeling good and doing my normal running routine.....And then BAM, it hit me out of no where, and all I have wanted to do is lay down. Of course with 2 little ones and a puppy, its not possible. I am surviving though and am thankful that in a few short weeks I will be done with the sickness! That day cannot come fast enough!
Anywho, so my kids, bless their little hearts have been so patient with my lack of patience, and so loving with my lack of wanting to do anything. We've still managed to have some fun despite all the grossness I have been feeling. We haven't taken a whole lot of pictures but here are just a few.....
Look at that kid. I want to eat his face every time I see those eyes. Though he is by far tougher than Blake was at 2, he still has the ability to melt my heart with that face and still loves to snuggle in my neck.
And there is our dog, "Mack" eating Kade after church. We have had a love/hate relationship since we got her. Or I guess I should say I have loved and hated her. She is doing tons better now, but when we first got her, she peed everywhere all the time and I wanted to take her back. I told Adam like a million times I was done with her (I know, horrible), and I didn't want to deal with it anymore. (Please remember we got her right after I found out I was pregnant and I am in the middle of crazy hormones and puking. I am normally not so mean about animals.) Now she is awesome, she "plays" with the boys, which mostly consists of them laying on the floor while she lick attacks their faces. It completely grosses me out, but they love it.
All in all we love our dog.
Dean (cousin), Kade, Blake, and Parker (cousin) at Parker's birthday party. Can you tell they are all family? The boys don't get to see Parker a whole bunch because of shared custody but when they do see him they have so much fun together. And they love Dean, who wouldn't, the kid is a stud.
Adam got another award at work for being a "Top Performer" Let me tell you, that man is amazing, he works so hard, and really shines. My parent's, though not in the picture, took us out to dinner to celebrate his great achievements, and then we took everyone to get ice cream after. The boys made a mess of course (you should have seen the area we were sitting at when we were done), but getting ice cream is probably one of their favorite things to do. Seriously who doesn't love getting ice cream? I just wouldn't recommend Coldstone, I really just don't like it too much. We found a yummy place called MOJO frozen yogurt or something like that and it was delish!
My son the IPod junky. Blake loves playing on the IPod. It is a special treat for him. I don't want him addicted to electronic gaming, so we only let him play on it occasionally, but the kid can maneuver the thing like nobodies business. He knows how to turn it on, put in the password, and get to a game he wants to play. I don't even know what I am doing on that thing half the time.
p.s. please notice how he is sitting, he always sits like that when he is on the IPod. Love that crazy boy.
Daddy took the boys on their first Father's and Son's outing, and they loved it. Apparently they were really good, and slept great in the tent. They talked about going camping for like a week after they got back. It was the first time I have been by myself since we had Blake. It was really weird. Don't get me wrong, it was nice for one night to be in a quiet house, but I was also glad for the noise when they got back. It is good every now and then to get a break, right?
So now you know we are still kickin over here in the House of Grahams. Just a few more weeks and hopefully I will be back to my normal self, and be able to be better about this whole blogging thing. Who knows, but until then, ta ta!

Baby # 3

Hello 2 months since I have had a new post! My bad. We have had a crazy couple of months, with lots going on, but really, I am just too lazy to blog about them all now. So instead I will talk about our most recent happenings. I would like to introduce you to the newest family member in the Graham Abode......
Now I know what you are all thinking, "Adam let you get a dog?!" It was Adam's idea! Out of the blue one day he said he thought it would be fun to get the boys a dog. I was more hesitant than he was, because lets be honest, it is just one more thing I have to clean up after, but in the end we found her and I fell in love. We adopted her from a shelter and she is a Boxer/Pit mix. She is so sweet and loves to snuggle. If you just sit on the floor, she will come climb in your lap and fall asleep on you. I love it. Blake named her Macaroni N Cheese. Naturally. We call her Mack for short. She is about 9 weeks old,already Kennel trained and doing pretty darn well at potty training. The boys love her, every morning when they wake up she is the first one they ask for; not to mention the fact that she keeps them entertained when I need a moment. We are grateful to have a her as a new member of our growing family.

P.S. Coming December 2010....the real baby # 3.

Done and Done!

Well its over. I accomplished my goal, and I ran a half marathon this past Saturday. Here I am in all my glory just before I passed the chick in the blue, and sprinted to the finish line with the chick in the tank top (it was awesome, we were both laughing when we crossed the finish line because we realized that we were both trying to pass each other. We ended up with the same exact time).

(I feel like I look really goofy in that picture. He just so happened to take it right as I was about to start sprinting to the finish line. I look like the hunchback of Notre Dame or something!)
My original goal was to finish by 2 and a half hours. When it started getting closer to race day I secretly decided that I wanted to keep a 10 minute mile pace which would have me finishing around 2:10-2:15. I was in the front before the race started but as soon as it started like 250 people flew past me and I felt a little foolish and wondered what I had gotten myself into. Around mile 4 is when I started passing people. At mile 7 I remembered that I had my phone with me, so I checked it to see what my time was thus far. I was running about 8 minutes faster than I thought! I was excited so I sped up a little more and by mile 9 I decided that I wanted to finish in under 2 hours. I DID IT! My time was 1:58.
I kept a 9 minute mile pace.

It was such a great experience. If you have never heard of Londons Run before I highly recommend you reading up on it here. Before the race they introduced all of the past sponsored families, and the 2 families they sponsored this year. London's mom spoke and had everyone in tears. Throughout the course some of the families put pictures of their children up with encouraging words for all the runners. I felt so incredibly blessed. There are so many children out there who are fighting each day to rid their body's of pain. I am so thankful that I am healthy and can contribute to them in some way. I am thankful to have a healthy husband and healthy children. It sounds weird to say, but I felt the spirit so strong while I was running. Compared to the challenges that these children have faced, running is nothing.

Anyway, while I was off running, they had plenty to do at Schnepf Farms. My parent's, Grammy, and Heidi were kind enough to come and support me along with my wonderful hubby and kids. Here are a few pictures of some of the things the kids got to do while they were waiting for me.

Heidi and Blake sliding down the ginormous blow up slide. Can you tell that Heidi was having just as much fun as the kids?
Heidi and Kade
Daddy and the boys checkin' out the Mesa Police Helicopter.
They also had a cop car, a petting zoo, more bouncy blow up things, tons of food, and tons of different booths to buy stuff.
All in all it was a great day and I am super glad I did it. I am now kinda feelin like I might want to do a full marathon.....someday. :)

Urine and Rain

Yesterday I woke up with a lovely case of a UTI.
3 days before I am supposed to run 13.1 miles, I can't even walk down the hall without feeling like I am going to pee everywhere.
All day I drank water and took cranberry pills and frequented the bathroom every few minutes, and prayed my little heart out that it would all go away.
And today, hallelujah, its gone.
I got out of bed got dressed to do my last run before Saturday and started to get the boys bundled up and in the stroller, only to realize that it is raining, again.
Now, darnit I am all for the rain. I love it. It is so rare that we get rain here that you really have to enjoy it when it comes. I LOVE running in the rain. The boys love running in the rain, but not when its 50 degrees outside! In the last week and a half my run has been spoiled about 5 times! Not good.
Oh well, I am sure in a matter of weeks it will be so hot, I will be praying for that rain again.
Anywho, speaking of Urine earlier, Kade decided the other day on his own that he doesn't want to wear diapers anymore.
What the?!
Yep, he woke up from his nap, brought me his diaper (in his hand, not on his bum), and said "I wear underwear mommy."
It was wonderful the first day. He went to the bathroom all on his own, I didn't even have to remind him.
Now it is going ok, but not so wonderful anymore. He has frequent accidents which leads me to believe that he isn't quite as ready as he wants to be, but he REFUSES to wear a diaper.
So the last few days have been filled with leaking underwear and leaking clouds.
Will I ever be dry?

Stink Face


is what we lovingly refer to as the "Stink Face."

You should beware of any gas you may have in our home because if you let it fly, and Blake hears it, this face is sure to come.

In other news, I have about a bazillion things I could post about since it has been forever since I had a real post, but, alas, I am just too darn lazy to worry about it.

We had a great Christmas where our children were spoiled rotten by their MeMa and PaPa, but really, can you blame them? I do have some pretty great kids who deserve to get spoiled by their grandparents, and boy do they do a great job at it. :)

We rang in the new year with style. The boys were in bed at 7:30 as usual and Adam and I were prepared to rock the night away watching movies and snuggling together. I was out cold by 11. Adam was a sweetheart and woke me up at midnight to give me a kiss. Ya we are a couple of hard core late night people.

January has already flown by for us. Mostly because we celebrated my birthday (and I am closer to 30 now than 20, ugh), and I have been counting down the days and getting more nervous by the minute for my half marathon. It is this Saturday and I am super excited and slightly nervous. okay a lot nervous. For the last two nights I have had dreams where I am running super late and might not make it, or I show up in high heels and not my running shoes, or I just can't figure out where I am supposed to go. It is getting ridiculous. Adam's manager at work does these sorts of things all the time so I have been having him relay questions and advice back and forth for me, and he said I am wasting my time with a half, I should just run a full marathon. Umm no. I am not ready for that yet.

So anyway, I have two runs left before the big one on Saturday. Wish me luck. If you have any advice for me, feel free to share, I'm sure I could use it.

This One Time

This one time I had a blog and I took forever to have an update.

Yep that's me.

It is coming.

I am busy with some craziness, ie the "the crazies," and....

My half marathon is in less than 3 weeks. :/

Bare with me ya'll.
