I know I am so horrible at updating this thing but here is a little bit of what has been going on. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving(s). I got this crazy idea that it would be fun to start Thanksgiving off by running a 5K!?!?! What was I thinking?? Just kidding, it was really a lot fun. I signed Mary up to do it with me and I think we plan to make it a tradition. It was such a great way to start the day. I ran/walked it in 43:34 min. My goal was to do it in under 45 min. so I was happy with my time. Mary is awesome and was able to run most the time and finish in 34:11. She was nice enough to come back and run the end with me again that is how we were able to get a picture together. It was a lot of fun.

We then went to my Dad and Chris's house and had a wonderful dinner with them. I didn't stay as long as we would of liked cause Brandon needed to get home so he could get to bed. Why you may ask, well Brandon and Willey, crazy kids, got up at 2:00am to hit the Wal Mart black friday sales. Lucky, they were able to get pretty much everything they were after. Big screen tv!!! Sadly, not for us but I am sure we will get lots of use out of too.

Then we headed down to Phoenix to have another Thanksgiving Dinner. It was really nice to spent it with Brandon's family. The food was extremely yummy as always. It was a good day.

Saturday was not the best day but I am thankful to Rod and Kathy for helping us. Unfortunately, we no longer have renters in our house in Phoenix and when they left they decided they did not need to clean anything. They left the house a total mess. So we spent a couple hours cleaning and cleaning. It stills needs some work but it looks a thousand times better than it did when we started. Once we were done, Kathy and I rewarded ourselves with New Moon. I loved it!!!! I heard a lot of mixed reviews but I enjoyed it and I think each movie is just going to get better and better. Lucky, we only have to wait seven months for the next one!!!

Well that pretty much covers it. We are now just getting ready for Christmas. Brandon put some lights outside and now I need to get the inside decorated. I am very excited cause I love Christmas!!!!
