Miss Madison asked Santa for an MP3 this year. How fun will it be on Christmas when this is happening all over the house and not just in her room. ENJOY!!!

We purchased our family ornament ( a red sled with 4 people in it and it says Horton's 2009), Madison's yearly ornament (a wreath with a horse head in the middle and it says Madi 2009), and Cason's got his (a green tractor that says Cason 2009).
We then purchased on last christmas gift, and had dinner at the mall food court. Madison was dying for a cinnamon sugar pretzel.
We also drove the "lights on st paul" and enjoyed that as well.
Hope everyone has something special they do as a family this season!!

My cousin Julie and I went to KC for a day, and did our first 1/2 marathon. I didn't do my best, but after the first mile or so, julie died, and I didnt want to leave her behind. Thus-- I made her speed walk with me. (I did pull away from her in the last couple miles though.) I came in at 3:23:16. Not bad, but I KNOW I could have done atleast a half hour better. So, in April, I am doing a half marathon in OKC with my bestie(thanks for the word Shana) Liz and maybe by sis-in-law and her hubby. WHOTWHOT!
Thanksgiving was "interesting" as usual. Always so much happening. One good thing from the weekend, my cousin Brandi is engaged. WHOTWHOT!
Sorry no pics to share this time!!

Ok- I am thinking that my cousin, Julie, wants a partner to join her on this run.
Also- I am thinking that I want to do more than a 10K before the year is out.
Finally- I can so do this!!
Back to reality---
First- I can so NOT do this!!
Second- What was I thinking?!
Third- Why didn't I get more training in?!
Fourth- I am going to die!
Fifth- I am SO NOT READY!
Sixth- "If found on ground, please drag across finish line" (this is a shirt I need to purchase to cover the fact that, I AM GOING TO DIE!
Seventh- **Taking deep breaths
Ok, I do want to be in GREAT SHAPE for the 10 year class reunion this coming year. AND I DO want to be the type of mom that can wear this shirt "One Bad Mother Runner"
(COUGH COUGH...Shana... my fav sis-in-law) AND my softball girls are going to be needing me to be in tip-top shape to kick their young teenage tushes into gear!
But I am still lacking motivation somehow.
AWH!!!! I need a FREE personal trainer to kick my ass into gear. Someone to yell at me, and get me going!

This one is Madison's.
This one is Cason's. (puking pumpkin- LOL!)
This is the dress that Madi replaced a couple too small birthday gifts for at Von Maur. She also got a "hope" graphic tee shirt and a set of sparkly bracelets. She was all about wearing her new dress to church the next morning.

It is Crazy what comes to a parents mind when trying to entertain a child while dinner finishes cooking. Apparently Cody was having a "good imagination" day. LOL!!
And Cason LOVED IT!! If you use sound, you can hear all his laughter, and excitement. :)
