Jingle Bell Run

The boys and I joined Jenny and her friend, Spring, on the Jingle Bell 5K on December 5th.

We met at Jenny's house, just a block away from the start line. It only took me about 20 minutes to get the boys set up in the stroller with enough books, toys and snacks for the race.

If the hat fits...

The Chick Fil A cow stopped to tell Kyle and Kase hello.

The boys did really well. I hope to make this an annual event with the boys.

Oh, This Kid!

For about 4 days Kase's snack of choice was an ice cream cone. No Ice cream. Just the cone. The crazy things these kids do just continue to crack me up.

And really? That face? He was so proud of himself. Too bad I made him get down after I took these pictures!

I know... I'm just a little behind, huh? I'm determined to catch up though... I want to be able to write about the little things that happen each day. It makes me sad to think of everything that I've already forgotten.

Oh, well... I have to start somewhere. So back to Thanksgiving...

Jason got up with the boys Thanksgiving morning, and I was able to go for a morning run all by myself. I didn't have to stop once to pick up a sippy cup or break up a fight. It was nice.

Then we headed over to Jason's parents house for Thanksgiving lunch. The boys were excited to see everyone and loved the all the attention they got from Jason's cousins and Aunt. After lunch we all hung around until it was time for Jason and his cousin, Chris, to head to Austin for the A&M game. I heard it was a cold one, so it was a good thing that the Aggies won!

I took the boys over to my parents house for Thanksgiving dinner. Jenny had to work until about 2:00 and Megan and Ryan had Thanksgiving in Arlington, so it was just the six of us. It was very nice and relaxed.

At some point the boys started getting a little stir crazy so we sent them outside to the garage with Grandpa. They love climbing and sitting on Grandpa's tractors (the gater and the riding lawn mower). Mom, Jenny, and I left them out in the garage for a little quiet time. I swear they stayed out there for an hour.

We ate AGAIN and then the boys played us some after dinner music... Stevie Wonder style!

My Mom and Dad kept the boys Thanksgiving night and all the next day so that Jason and I could clean our house and put out Christmas decorations. This was the second year that they did that, and I think it will become a fun tradition for the boys.

I am so thankful for all of my wonderful family memebers. And thankful that I get to be the Mom to the two sweetest little boys!
