Last Friday Chris and I took the kids to get photos taken so we'd have lots to choose from for this years Christmas card. I usually try to send my cards out the day after Thanksgiving. For years people have told me that mine is the first they receive each year. Not going to happen thing year. With a very active four year old and a 1 year old who is very newly into everything..... I am just a bit behind. None the less, I am trying to get them done and ordered asap.

It was Olympic week at Owen's preschool this week. The staff and teachers organized "Olympic" events for the children such as long jump, bean bag toss, ring toss and potato sack races. Ms. Dawnna told me not only did Owen win the long jump contest, that he won it by leaps and bounds and maybe jumped further than any 3 year old she has ever had in class. Chris and I thought that was pretty cool. And appropriate because we see this kid jump all the time and jump high, far, fast and often. If you know Owen you know that the boy is always on the go! Today for all of their "Olympic efforts" they received a tiny little trophy and a medal to wear. Owen is so proud of himself and it is just fantastic to see. Heart melting almost:)

Holy cow folks, she is 8 months old. So, okay, I am 3 days late with the blog post because her birthday was on Monday the 3rd, but who is really paying attention to that???? Nobody. On Monday we lowered the crib mattress because she was at that point that when she was pushing up on her tummy she was so high that her head went above the crib height. Still only 2 teeth. Loving YoBaby yogurt in all flavors, puffs, rice with apple cereal, sweet potatoes, squash, and carrots are her favorites. She will tolerate and eat some of the sweeter fruits like pears, and apples and such, but she much prefers the blander veggies. Olivia LOVES to watch Owen doing anything because he is ALWAYS on the go. Still a great sleeper but now she is a tummy sleeper about 80% of the time. Happy 8 month birthday to our sweet girl!

So Easter was like ages ago. Well, like 3 weeks ago. It happened to fall the day after Chris and I's 6th wedding anniversary. We went out to dinner to one of our favorites, Roys, which is where we had our 5th wedding anniversary dinner in Jacksonville last year. Last year I was preggers with Olivia so of course no drinking for me. This year, def not preggers, so indulging and boozing I did thank you very much:) I had a couple Hawaiian martinis and then with dinner we had some wine. We had a great time. Came home and helped the Easter bunny make up the kids baskets and hide candy filled eggs, went to bed by 2am and of course we were up with both kiddos by 6 and 6:30. It was a long day. My cousin Jason said he was going to come over for Easter dinner so I made a spiral sliced ham, crescent rolls, mac and cheese and green beans. Owen had the best time hiding the Easter eggs over and over and over. He actually did this for days until Chris and I almost couldn't take it anymore.

saturday morning i ran in the summerlin st patty's day 5k. it was such a small event, maybe 150 or 175 people. i like to run in races every now and then just for the fun of it. lots of people ran with joggers and such and almost everybody was wearing green just to be in the spirit of the holiday. nobody told me that the first mile and three quarters were straight up hill. that part was not fun if you ask me. to my surprise (complete and total) post race when they were announcing winners the called my name for finishing first in my age division 25-29. yay me- i was pretty excited:)
