Pumpkin Patch & Pumpkin Painting 2011

We had to make a quick trip to Glenpool this weekend. We are selling our rent house there and had to go check out how much work we need to do to make it more sellable. That's another post all in itself! We have a ton to do! While Scott and his dad got started Janice, the kids, and I met Ashley and Jaxxi at the pumpkin patch!

The kids had fun roaming, climbing, and feeding the animals.

We spent the afternoon with Kim and Ryan.

Sawyer's nose had a little run in with the sidewalk. It looks pitiful today and to top it off he's all snotty. My stomach turns everytime I have to wipe his poor little nose.

I finally gave into Bree's multiple request to paint their pumpkins today. It did occupy a good hour so it wasn't too bad. Sawyer also painted his head. Jarrett was the cleanest painter and Bree the most creative.

I found these lovely self portraits on my phone when I was deciding what pix to post. She acts just like her aunt ash!

In 4 days I leave for Dallas! 2 kid free days and Muddy Buddy!!

This and That

I wanted to snap a photo of Bree today. This is what I got!

She has been writing and sounding out words these days. And practicing her numbers...everywhere!

And Jarrett thinks he will be a Dr. Pepper box for Halloween.

Sawyer has an obsession with markers.

He really likes to eat them! Just realize I don't have recent pics of him I haven't already shared. I'll fix that tomorrow!

Run for Shelter 5k

Another race in the books!

SPC office products sponsored Kara, Becca, Brandy, & I for this race! (thanks Cory).

I think this was my 12th race yet I still get terrible pre-race jitters. I decided to warm up for this race and jogged the mile from my house to the start. When I was almost there I got this text from my dad...(the Oct 1 text).

He's always pushing me, but that's what works, I was 25 seconds shy of his prediction.

Although my legs felt heavy the whole race I finished with a personal best of 27:05 and placed 2nd in my age group!

Approaching the finish!

This is the first race my husband has gotten to attend. Was fun to have him, my boys, my aunt and cousin cheering for me! And he snapped a pic with his phone for me.

My bling!

My favorite race shirt so far!

And a post race pic with Brandy who also got a personal best today!

And for face this year and last year same race! I look so much happier and healthier a year later! So thankful for the day my mom pushed me to start walking that has lead me to where I am now!
