I got a call the night before Thanksgiving from one of my best friends saying that she wanted to run the Turkey Trot. She had an extra slot and wanted to see if I wanted to go. I told her that I hadnt been running and that I have never ran more than a mile. But I said that I would go for some reason! We ended up running the whole thing (6 miles+). Im glad I did it but I am still sore! We spent Thanksgiving day with my family and had a great time. Then my sisters and I went to Toys R' Us at midnight, Dennys, then Target and Walmart. I didnt get home til 6 in the morning and then slept a few hours and then enjoyed spending the weekend with Cory and Crew

I got all my Christmas decorations up and we can't wait until Christmas! I just love the holidays!

Another Trip to the Fair

We were able to take another trip to the fair on Wednesday. This time Cory got off work and almost my entire family came. It was Cory's first time at the fair and he loved it! We went on tons of rides, ate tons of food, and played 1 game. (Which Cory won the giant polar bear!) We had tons of fun and we can't wait until it comes next time!

Right before we left.

We looked over and Crew was just chillin like this

Crew loved the petting zoo...again!

Stetson took Crew and he cried the whole time!

Pumpkin Patch 2009

On Saturday night we had fun going to a pumpkin patch with Savannah, Kyle, Leesie and Craig, Mallory and Carter. Uncle Kyle got Crew some cowboy boots so we decided to put them to use! He looked so cute! Crew loved being out at night outside. He is at the perfect age right now for things like this. We cant wait for this next week of Halloween!

Zoo Trip

Well since now that we are Zoo season pass holders we will be making alot of trips to the Zoo in the next year. Crew loves animals and its actually pretty good excercise walking around carrying him and/or pushing a stroller up and down hills and around the whole park for hours. Today we went for my niece Leesie's 1st birthday. It ended up being my mom, 3 sisters, cousin, leesie, crew and me. We had a great time. Crew liked these fake animals almost as much as the real ones! We also got to feed a giraffe today. (hopefully i can upload the video) Crew got scared and I got grossed out, but it was a good once in a lifetime thing!

Kauai, Hawaii

Well I need to take a second to let my husband know how proud of him I am. Last month he worked extra hard and did amazing. So his company invited him to be in there "President's Club" which means that they fly Cory and I to Kauai, Hawaii for a week and pay for everything! (including giving us spending money) We get to stay in this amazing hotel.

Cory is looking forward to the golf course next to the ocean and im looking forward to the massages, great food, and laying out. I honestly cannot wait! We go the first week in February and I am counting down the months! It will be good to get away us two right before Valentines Day and not have to pay for anything! Thanks babe for always working so hard! You deserve it! Love you tons!

An Animal Week

While Cory was working hard this week. Crew and I had tons of fun hanging out with the animals! Monday we went to this lady's house that has cows, chickens, dogs, horses, and mini horses! haha we sure had fun! Crew loved seeing a horse fit for him. We fed them celery and then went over to the chickens. Crew thought the chicked would like celery too, but that just scared them off! Then Wednesday we went to the zoo with Savannah and Leesie and Krystal and Hadley. It was hot, but we still had a good time and crew loved seeing all the animals! Here are some pictures taken from off my phone. enjoy!
