For me I started running with this running group here in So Jo. It has been so great running with a group again. Theres over 20 in the group not everyone comes all the time but there always seems to be at least 10 of us. It is a hardcore group, snow, rain, freezing wind doesn't stop them from meeting at 6 a.m. Tues and Thurs. It has been so good for me because they do a lot of speed work mixed in with long pace runs. A lot of them do the "grand slam" every year ( for those like me who don't know what that is it's completing 4 marathons between April and Oct) so they don't mess around. I love it so much because it has got me up and running out in this cold weather, I can run in the dark and not be scared, and they are always running in different locations so I don't get bored with the same old route. To sum it up I'm loving this running group! Also, I'm excited that I'm adding a Saturday aerobics class, boot camp style, it should be fun. They finally, after 3 months, took the band off of kids with swim diapers going swimming, so we've been doing that on a regular basis. It is so fun now that Emmy actually enjoys swimming, she could just sit there and splash all day long. I've also loved decorating for Christmas this year and getting new ideas for decorations and gifts. And another new and exciting thing is I'm prego! Yeah! I just found out but I can't keep it in, so ya'll are the first to know.
As for Aaron he completed all of the interviews, drug tests, background, and everything on his part for the application process for the Border Patrol. Now we are just waiting to hear back. yikes! He thinks it could be as early as January that he would leave for training. We still can't decide were we want to go: Texas (El Paso) or Arizona (Uma or Tuscon??) Any suggestions?
The Maile situation is getting better, I have tried a few different techniques and at least now she stays in her room and plays until she falls asleep in her big girl bed, however that creates a new problem of her pulling out every possible thing in her drawers and boxes, its a complete disaster every time I go to get her! As for the potty thing I gave up on it again and probably won't pull it out for a while. And for all those who remember me as pee my pants girl those days are past, it has honestly been a long time, probably months or even years that I've had an incident so back off.
Emmy has finally figured out the walker so she loves cruisin around. The crawling is still a work in progress, but I think it won't be much longer, she isn't content just sitting playing with toys anymore.
And now if you've managed to make it to the end of this long blog, jokes about the prego thing! I just wanted to get a rise out of ya'll and I feel like this is kind of a boring post so just wanted to spice it up a bit. he he he! I wish I were but no luck yet! But we just found out that both my sister Jenni and sister in law Jenni are and I'm so excited for them. We'll keep on "trying". jokes I hate that phrase
Here's just some of the pictures we've taken in the last little bit. Two sick girls that just wanted to snuggle (never happens) and sleep.
Me and all the sisters and one sister in law (we missed you Jamie) celebrating Justins 18th birthday
Enjoying the beautiful weather in November - parks and flying kitesKamaile and her latest obsession - Prince Phillip. Ever since Aaron was Prince Phillip for Halloween she insists that she is a boy and wants to be Prince Phillip. She gets pretty worked up when I keep telling her she is a little girl, if she isn't a boy then she's either fa fa or a dragon. I don't know what her problem is with being a cute little girl but she hates the sound of that. Some of her latest sayings that I can't help but laugh at are "that's enough Mommy" if I start singing with her or doing something she doesn't like. Yesterday she got stuck between Emmys walker and the door for a minute and she said "oh crap". It may not seem that funny but I thought it was hilarious and made me realize that she picks up on everything I say.
