Run For Rex

On June 5th Jeff and I had the awesome opportunity to run in a 5k race for a sweet little boy Rex who has a brain stem cancer. It was a different feeling running this race then my first because we were running for this little boy. I was so glad we were able to help and support this little boy and his family. I also got to run with my cute husband who was with me the whole run. We also got to see a lot of our friends and family. I was pretty proud of my self because I did beat my last race score, this time I ran it in 29:29, Jeff was a sweet husband and let me finish first, he finished at 29:31! Here are a few pictures from the event.

Still Catching Up..Turkey/Graduation/Memorial Day weekend

A few weeks ago for sunday dinner I decided to make a turkey breast. I had never made any sort of turkey before so I was pretty nervous that I was going to burn it or something like that. But I was happy when It turned out just perfect. We had Frank, Kathy, Tyler and Ali over to help us eat the whole thing. I was pretty proud of my self, I am not much of a cooker but I am learning. Jeff insisted to take a picture to remember the day. I should have got more but by the time I had cooked potatoes, green beans, and rolls pictures was the last thing on my mind. But hey we at least have one!

Then to Start off our memorial day weekend My Cute little brother Alec Graduated from Mountain View High School. He is Number six in our family to do so. I am so proud of him! Congrats Alec I love ya!
Every one in our family is getting so old! But we do have a lot of fun when we all get together.

After Graduation Jeff and I went right up to the cabin. We have a lot fun there. But it was sure cold this year. So we just hung out, I did a few puzzles, went fishing and ate good food. On saturday we all went for a walk down to the lake. On our way there Jeff was teaching McKailey how the throw a frisbee. By the end of walk she got pretty good at it. Here are few pics at the lake!

Later that night the girls were watching Anne of Green gables. You can imagine how thrilled the boys were about it, so they went upstairs to play the wii. The best part of the story was Jeff was giving McKailey a hard time about staying downstairs with the girls and said the boys were going to have a party upstairs with popcorn, soda and candy. Well... Jeff had to eat his words when McKailey took him seriously. She was so cute, she got them all a soda, and a cup, popped popcorn and then got some candy and they had their own little party upstairs.

So the weekend was a success! We always have fun with our families and are so grateful to have each and everyone of them!

Playing Catch up

So much to catch up on but that is the story of my life... Always behind haha. Well it has been busy april and May. April 1st was a big day in our family because Jeff and I got a nephew! It is so fun to have a baby around and he is as cute as ever! His name is Carter. Congrats to Tyler and Ali on being new parents! We love you guys! Here are few pics.

Then later that month Jeff and I got some babies of our own, Well... Baby chicks that is. 16 hens and 2 roosters. Our 6 chickens we have now are getting old so we decided it was time to buy more. Jeff loves to take care of them. We have a chicken coop in our backyard so its nice. I have not bought eggs in 9 months. So when these chicks get big enough we will have eggs coming out our ears!

We also did some painting in our house. We painted our bathrooms and kitchen. The kitchen was not my favorite. I had this great idea to paint it yellow... well after it was all done I hated the way it looked. It was like the biggest eye sore. So they very next day after spending hours on it, Jeff helped me repaint it. We did it the same color as the rest of the house, Nothing exciting but It looks good. Maybe one day I will go crazy again and want to paint it a different color, but I don't see that happening anytime soon. I have some before and after pictures but I will have to post those later.
Anyway, april and may was full of baseball games and lots of working. My little brother Alec was a senior so I tried to go to a lot of his games. Its hard when you work because their games are right when your working but I was lucky and got to see a few games.
Jeff finished up school at the end of april and got Straight A's in his classes. I was so proud of him. He works so hard so I was so I am glad the long hours studying paid off. He totally deserves it. Now he is enjoying the time off of school until fall and working landscaping. He loves it. I picked up a half day at work for a few week in may and june so that has been cool. I started assisting again for 1 and a half days. I have missed doing that. Oh How could I forget april is the busiest month for birthdays in our families.
