Every year when we send out Christmas cards we pick a word to put on the front that has meant something somehow to us that last year. This year we used "grateful" on our Christmas cards. When I look back at 2012 I am grateful. Grateful for a little baby born in a manger. Grateful for a big Savior. Grateful that I am a Daughter of the the most high King. Grateful for a loving and God fearing husband. Grateful for two crazy children. Grateful for real friends. Grateful for family. Grateful. Merry Christmas from my family to yours!!

So I am finally getting around to posting about Kate and Whit's birthdays. (see next post for Whit's). This year I got Jason to use some of his hotel points to get us a room at Ross Bridge Hotel so that we could invite a few of Kate's friends to go swimming at their pool and then stay as a family that night. He came through big time and got us the hospitality suite...very nice! We had a great time, and the kids could have stayed at the pool going down that slide all day. Kate thought it was the coolest thing ever that we were going to spend the night in a hotel!
(Yes, this is 3 months late...sorry) My neighbor's little boy Miles, and Whit have birthdays a week apart in May. So we got together and decided to do our First Annual Birthday Block Party. It was perfect, we invited the families on our street with children Whit and Mile's age to come down and jump! It ended up that the entire family (daddies included) came and it was a super fun afternoon. Of course offering beer to the dads didn't hurt :)

My friend Fresh Grace Photography took these pictures a little while back but I am just now getting them up on the blog. Love how she uses lighting. And to see some amazing wedding photos check out her sight...they are breathtaking. But back to my cute kids...

We did it!! My friend, Nichole, and I ran a MARATHON! Nichole (a good friend I have known for forever) and I traveled up to Nashville Friday afternoon. We basically tried to pump ourselves up for what would be the hardest thing we have ever done. First goal however, was to get to the Convention Center to pick up our race packets which was an easy enough task. When we pulled into downtown Nashville it was complete mayhem. I have never seen so many people in my life in one area much less the line around the building of people trying to get their race packets too. After getting our race packets we walked through the expo where we overheard a man say "biggest mistake of my life was not having sun glasses last year when I ran this race." Needless to say we headed straight towards a vendor selling sun glasses and bought some very stylish running glasses...I think they made us look more like professional runners!! :) Nashville does a wave start so that 20,000+ people don't trample each other to death when the race starts. We were in coralle 20. There were 37. This picture is looking towards the start line which you can't even see because we are so far back. I have never been a part of any event this big in my life...it was insane to see all these people.
