Rock & Roll Half-Marathon!!!!

Ok so I just have to report on how proud I am of my husband!! He ran his first ever half-marathon (13.1 miles!) on Sunday in the Rock and Roll Marathon. There were 30,000 runners registered for the race. YIKES! Craziness, I believe it's called! There was a half-marathon and a full marathon...oh my gosh- if 30,000 runners won't inspire you to get in shape, I have no idea what will! HA!! I did 5 miles myself today on the treadmill, because I was feeling inferior to them! Anyway, matt finished in 2:28:09...his knees were hurting pretty bad after mile 9, so he had to slow down a bit. I caught him at the end of the race--sorry, babe, for not being a good wife and meeting you at several points during your race. Cut me some slack! Being a 6 month pregnant lady among more that 30,000 people is annoying enough as it is! Anyway, it was pretty cold to start (38 degrees I believe), but then it warmed up when the sun came out. Now I have a goal--Matt and I are going to run TOGETHER next year. Yes, I am not usually a runner, but now I just have to do this. Wish me luck! I will need it, I'm sure!! HHAHAHAHAHAH!!


We went downtown on Saturday to the Health and Fitness Expo after Brian's game. We parked at Matt's work (for FREE! love that!) and rode the trolley for $2 (total!) to the Alamodome. Things were pretty crazy down there since the Rock and Roll Marathon was going to be on Sunday morning--see next post! We had a good time, and the kids had a blast riding the trolley!

Brian's last game!

Brian had his last soccer game on Saturday. :( He did great--scoring 3 goals I think. I did get a video of him scoring one, but I need to figure out how to put that on here. They got a little trophy for playing. Tomorrow night is their team party at Chuck E Cheese's where they will get a cuter trophy that Aimee ordered! LOL! Good job Brian!

movie sillyness

Since they've been really good at getting their 2 stars/day at school, I took the kids to see Madagascar 2 on Tuesday. It was a cute movie! We were there 10 mins early so we were just messin around with the camera before the movie are the results....I LOVE brian's face in the last one! How much cuter can you get?!?!?

Matt's 29! Tapatio, cake and cuties

Matt turned 29 last Sunday!! It's officially his last year of the 20s! YIKES! Just teasin...kinda...anyway.... Friday night matt and I stayed at Tapatio Resort, and played a round of golf the next morning. No we did not splurge! HA! Last year we won a free night and round of golf for two from Matt's it worked out that we could go there this past weekend for his bday. On sunday we had a yummy dinner and cake at matt's parents house.
And of course I couldn't resist adding a pic of the kids before church....look how big they are!!!

Baby Max

Our lovely cousins, Jenny and Martin, had a new baby last Sunday!! He wasn't due until Thanksgiving day, so he was a month early! He was 5 lbs, 15 oz and 19 inches needless to say, Jenny was glad to have had him early! HA! He is soooo tiny and absolutely adorable. SOOO much black hair and the sweetest thing ever! Sydnee was in love! She wanted to hold the baby the whole time, and she asked to stay with Jenny and Martin when I told her it was time to go. Seriously, this girl was almost crying when we got to the car! It was so cute! I'm thinking she is going to be an awesome big sister to our new baby in a couple months!

Diabetes 5k

On saturday morning, we ALL got up before dawn (yikes!) to go and run/walk a 5k for the American Diabetes Association. Matt's parents came with us too! Yes, I am 22 weeks pregnant, and it wasn't too bad. I usually fast walk 3 miles 3 days a week on a treadmill, but on the pavement, my body is definately feeling it more. AND I felt bad for making Matt (mr. "I'm training for a Half Marathon) walk fast most of the way, so I gave in and ran some...aren't I nice? Thanks to our lovely friends who let us borrow your strollers since our double jogger's tire blew out last week! It was actually probably better that we had 2 strollers!


As if the 2 other times we went trick or treating weren't enough-- we went, yet again, on Halloween night. The kids trick or treated in Granny and Grandpa's neighborhood with matt and grandpa, while Granny Sharon and I handed out candy at the house.
On thursday night, we carved a pumpkin and frosted sugar cookie pumpkins to take to the kids school classes on Friday. On Friday, they were told to wear their best Halloween shirts to school. They had a super fun Halloween this year!
