Merry Christmas 2016

It's been a great one thus far.

Steven showed how much he knows me by getting a cold brew kit and Stevie Nicks tickets. 

Our church put on a small Christmas scene play. The kids did amazing.

Ridlee played with bubbles in the nursery. Her favorite.

Ryker and Heston were 2 of the kings. 

Granny and Pops came so we actually had someone to take our Christmas family picture. 

Kieran's medal holder I made.

Someone needed an early nap.

Happy 13th birthday Kieran!

And just like that she is 13! Adding another teenager into the house. Ugh, this is so hard. We've realized in the past year that she has some talents that can/may lead her to a SNL side career. She's even utilized them in her Science class using a Trump impression for a debate (photosynthesis vs. cellular respiration) that had even her principal rolling. Wish I had that filmed. She's realized she would like to be a Speech Therapist when she grows up, after seeing her sister's journey. She's taken on running and the itch for high competition is there. She's adjusted to a new school and made lots of friends. Her first dance is tonight and she's excited. Hard to believe how fast time goes, I wish it would slow down just a tad. Happy birthday Kieran! We love you!

Route 66 Half-Marathon

#6 in the books. Even my medal needs a rest. Second best time but longer than one with PR. Also first half that I didn't stop running and made it up all the hills without stopping. I'm pretty sure I did the best I could on this course. Not sure official time yet, but around 2:08. Now I can start an off season.

Gage State XC

And just like another end to another season. Gage finished 19th out of 160 kids. Three away from All-State. He's going to run the Turkey Trot and then start his off season until Track.
