Last week, the boys and I rode with Randy to Pangitch
Wednesday, November 28, 2007
I didn't go out black Friday until about 9 a.m. Michale came with me so that was really fun, I think our deal of the day was the leather coats we got at JcPenny for $48 they are originally $200, but I get mine now and she has to wait till Christmas!! What a mean mom!! I did finish her up with some clothes and some boots, I just have to get stocking stuffers and shes done, Jake is about done also, but that is about as far as Ive gotten, I'm debating on the train set at Costco for the boys, the one that has its own table and drawers underneath for when your not playing!! Merissa I think is going to get a Karaoke Machine, Monica is pretty easy I will probably just get her more Polly pockets or maybe some of the pet shop stuff like that!!
The girls performed at the Jubilee of trees, that was a lot of fun then they also have the dickens festival coming up!! Merissa got to do her Show team dance for the first time, she thought that was a lot of fun, and they are hoping to get to do their hip hop dance this time!!
Oh yea before I forget Jayden my sweet boy, ok let me start at the beginning, I was getting my nails done it was about 7 p.m. I get a call from Merissa she says, daddy said to call me that Jayden got hurt and he is bleeding, and dad cant talk cause he is trying to stop the bleeding and he might have to take Jayden to the Dr., so Natalie finishes my nails and I head home and I call home on my way Randy says its not so bad he doesn't think he will need stitches he thinks a band aide will be fine, Im thinking oh good it just must have looked alot worse with all the blood!! So I get home and Randy is just getting Jayden out of the tub and I pick him up and tell him mommy needs to look under his band aide he of course starts bawling his head off and I tell him I'm not going to touch it just look (oh by the way it is still oozing blood down his face from under the band aide!!) so I pull back the band aide, oh my word is that his brain or skull that I'm looking at?? Then of course I scream RANDY!!! He answers back from the other room, I know I just wanted you to be the bad guy and say he needed stitches!! So 6 stitches later and a VERY unhappy little boy that took mom dad and 2 nurse and one Doctor!! He tells me that he was running SUPER fast and Colton wouldn't get out of his way and he fell on the corner of the banister!!!

The girls performed on friday, it was such a great experience for them!! They did such a great job!! The light was not good so my pictures didnt turn out very good so Im bummed about that, but they were so cute up there on stage, and they were just happy to be there!!
Then of course we hit the beach a couple of days, and the kids had a blast Colton sure wasnt sure about the ocean I kinda had to drag him over to it and then would run away as quick as I let him go!!
Home now and its back to running like crazy! But it was a great get away!!

Ok so let me start at the beginning, Friday we got together and went to the expo to pick up our numbers and look around and go listen to the speaker who was talking to the first timers. Then we were meeting for dinner and going to the cabin. So we ate pasta and salad for dinner went to pine valley figured out where we were sleeping, then we talked watched t.v. played games, and went to bed, but not before long discussions about what we were wearing and getting it all set out. Well it was so awesome that we got to stay in pine valley because that meant we didn't have to be up at 3 in the morning we got up at 5:15 when a lot of people were already waiting at the starting line!! WHOOO HOOOO!! So we got up Saturday morning got ready cheered if we went # 2!! (Kinda funny what runners cheer about) LOL. We got to the start line probably 5-10 minutes before it started, dropped our first bag of clothes in the truck, and made our way to our spots. We actually never heard the gun go off, we were just kinda all of a sudden just slowly going forward. So at mile one we dropped our second bag of clothes oh I think I failed to mention the temp. when we got to the start 30 yep 30 so cold but awesome!! I ran in my way cute running skirts.com running skirt so cute 2 pockets on the sides little compression shorts underneath so cute!! so I just ran and it was awesome, it started to get more difficult at about mile 23 I kinda had to start talking to my self you know like" you can do this" "you are strong" "you've trained hard for this" "your muscles are so strong"!! Any time that I started thinking about my family in those last few miles I started getting pretty emotional so I had to ban family thoughts from my mind!!! But nothing compairs to when you turn that corner to the end of the race, and you think you are totally spent and that when you hear those wonderful friends and family who have come to cheer for you, and its like a little bit of the energy is transferred to you!! Then as I came down the home stretch and I turned because I heard my mom and sister and daughter, yelling for me, Then I hear my husband and a wonderful surprise my in laws all came to watch me, oh then I really started crying I was there the finish line and everyone I cared about was there to celebrate with me!!
Ok now I m going to tell you my time, so I had in my mind when I first signed up that I wanted to do it around 5 hours, well then I started thinking that I really wanted to do it under 5 hours like around 4:45, but really I thought it would be so cool to hit around 4:30 but I thought there is no way I can do that, but when I was at the expo, I picked up the 4:30 wrist band, even though I forgot it race day!! But I passed the 4:30 balloons about mile 3 then she passed me about mile 21 I tried to keep up with her but I thought she was running faster then the 10:18 time because I was running faster then that! So I thought well at least maybe I will make it around 4:45 which would really make me happy so, when I ran through the finish line it said 4:35 something which I was so excited but I kinda forgot about chip time which we had to tie this little thing to our shoe and it starts when you go over the start and stops when you go over the finish so I went and got my shoe wanded and I got 4:29:08 YAY so excited so much better then I thought so awesome!!
Ok so I was SO SO SO sore never in my life have I ever been so sore! I walked so funny!! I got a message at 2 that day then all through the second session of conference, my wonderful Michale messaged me all through it, and let me tall you it felt wonderful!! But today I feel 98 % better so I think I will go to spin in the morning so, would I do it again.....HEMMMMMMMMMMM YEP!!!! I cant wait!!! Crazy, I know!!

Ok these are the pages I got done while I was up north visiting Amy and Kasi. I got up there about 9:30 after helping Kasi's neighbor with her car we spent the day shopping (and night) then saturday we did a little more shopping then we scrapped until about 4-4:30 in the morning man it was so fun. Amy even called Katie and it almost felt like she was there with us!! We had so much fun just visiting and scrapping, when we were out shopping we even shopped for clothes and jewelry this time!!
Im getting so excited for the marathon I think after running the 20 miles it really felt like we can so do it, we felt so good when we got done. In fact when I got home we loaded up and took the 4-wheelers out and rode till dark!! Jake ran out of gas so we had to load his bike onto my bike so I was riding pretty slow, then went back out sunday and we went on a really long ride and wouldnt you know it, he ran out of gas again, this time Randy carried Jakes bike on his!! The kids just love it! Colton does so awesome, I just put him in my front pack and he just sits on my lap waves at the kids and makes those boy noises, you know brmmmmmm bbbbbrrrrrrrrrmmmmmmmmm!! So cute!!

He had a little bit of a hard time when I left but he did great. There has only been 1 time since that I had to leave him upset, that is when we rode with Randy to pine valley and he fell asleep on the way back so I woke him when we got close and he was not happy about having to go to school, oh it was terrible he cried and then man I felt terrible!!
So sorry it has taken me so long to post again but man it has just been crazy, it seems like I havent even sat down at the computer unless im doing a lesson or something, run clean drive kids around run run run run run!!! It feels kinda crazy though that it is all going to be coming to an end in 2 weeks, Im very excited but In some ways I dont want it to end, now I know Im crazy but I just LOVE getting out there with the girls and just running and visiting, I now know what they mean 26.2 cheep therapy (but really not so cheep) LOL

This Is what I worked on, during all those long hours of driving first I got my 2 photo mats done for a swap then the card for card club then I got the journal box done for another swap. Well then I was out of things to dowith the trip from denver still to go, we didnt find a store in denver we didnt look but we checked out grand junction and the only store closed so as we were driving I thought well why not create a little 6 x 6 book to add photo's to when I get home, so I had limited things because all I had was what i brought to work on the swaps and cards, then at one of our stops I remembered my stuff I got in Kansas so I got that out, then todayin about an hour I added photo's and a little bling and wala a little mini book for Monica. Very excited!!
