So today I completed a 6K, which is 3.72 miles. I wasn't sure I would be able to run the entire race...I've been running since the first part of November, but had never run more than somewhere between 2.5 and 3 miles, and just that hurt. The race was in Gilbert, called the 12 K's of Christmas. A bunch of girls from work signed on to run and I thought I would see if I could do it. I think I need a new challenge in my life. For some reason or another each night when I would run, even though it hurt, it felt great. Like pounding all my stresses, struggles, annoyances, and crap into the sidewalk. I hope to continue running...we'll see. The race today felt great, I wanted to die around the last K, but managed to hold out with the help of Sherry, who ran with me. Whoo-hoo! Since it was the 12 K's of Christmas, everyone running was dressed up Christmas-like. We were all given Santa hats, which of course I wore proudly.

school fun.

Some of the fun Christmas projects my kids get to work on when they finish their work and do a good job. They are great little artists!

my piano players...

The kids had their first piano recital this last week. They did a fantastic job and they love their piano teacher. She is a great teacher and we are lucky to have her. Jacob played "The Little Drummer Boy", Isabel played "Jingle Bells", and Sofia played "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer".

turkey weekend

Spent a great long weekend in P-town for Thanksgiving this year. Everyone was there this year which made for some fun, crowded fun! We ate yummy food, played tons of rummy, played in the snow, walked around the lake a few times, and ate more yummy food.

This is what we woke to on Thanksgiving morning...snow!
