Tonight I took the kids to a costume dinner/party/trunk-or-treat at our church, and of course we will be trick or treating on Thursday. Here are Shane and Shorty's birthday cake pictures.
|No one does happy like Shorty does!|
I snapped this picture right before we walked onto the field.
And here is a pic of my gorgeous Destinee just because. :)
My big kids are just so much fun. I enjoy them so much - from the serious talks about life to the silliness. I love watching them with each other, I love watching them with the younger kids, and I love just hanging out with them. They are awesome people. :)
Josh is working SO much. He works a lot usually, but he has had a huge amount of extra graphic design work for political campaigns. He is a talented graphic designer and has done many pieces now and is a big part of several campaigns back east. In the next few days it will become too late for anything else to be designed and printed and he can exhale, but right now everything is rush, rush, panic, panic, now, now. It is his birthday this weekend and I can't wait to do something special with him and celebrate him. I miss him! He is the love of my life and an incredible husband, dad, and person.
Running is going well. I had a decent 19-miler this weekend and my other runs and workouts have been solid. My feet are hanging in there and mileage is growing (up to 80 mpw). I got my training plan from Coach Doug through December and it is both scary and exciting! I am just going to take it one day at a time and enjoy the journey. I can feel my speed and endurance improving and I am excited to be on the right track and to see what I can do. I have gotten back down to my goal training weight which makes me happy. I will be avoiding the candy bowl so I can keep it that way!
It has been fun reading all of the race recaps from so many races this time of year. I am excited for all of those racing New York this weekend! Josh is definitely running it next year (he took the deferment) and I may or may not - have to talk with coach and decide on a target fall/winter race for next year.
That is what has been going around here. Busy as always, but life is good.
Do you have any big races coming up?
What's your favorite Halloween candy? Mine is Dots, and anything with peanut butter. :)
