Work It!

Monday, August 27, 2012

I have started going to a personal trainer at the Simmons Center and I got to pick up my cardio program today. I'm so excited! And I was super pumped about the results of the cardio test he gave me. My heart is in amazing shape!

It's Official

Sunday, August 25, 2012

Well I have OFFICIALLY signed up for my marathon!!! Now that I have paid there is no backing out now.

Buddies

Saturday, August 25, 2012

Me and Carrie finally wised up and rather than one of us trying to take all 4 girls, which equals mass chaos, we decided to just swap one kid. It's much less crazy and each girl gets one on one time with the their friend. They look so sweet!!

Sprouts!

Thursday, August 24, 2012

This is some of my beautiful bounty I bought at Sprouts yesterday. We try to eat as much organic produce as we can and grassed and wild meats but we are very limited here in Duncan. Sprouts sales run Wednesday to Wednesday so if you go on Wednesday you can shop two weeks worth of sales. I am going to start trying to go twice a month and stocking up on things. My cart was literally overflowing with yummy organic produce! And it's not much more expensive than what I pay at Walmart. Love it!

First Day of Kindergarten and 2nd Grade!

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

Today was the girls first day back to school! They were both really excited. They both have good friends in their classes and their teachers seem really nice. Mackenzie was a little apprehensive being at a new school with so many bigger kids but she did great. They both said they had a good day and were excited to go back. That's always a good thing! I can't believe my girls are so big.

The Leper

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

Poor Noah always manages to catch the weirdest illnesses. He woke up from his nap today covered in weird red whelps and running a fever. They would come up and look really puffy and red and them would go away and leave what looked like a blood blister behind. I couldn't get him into the doctor and they said it was almost for sure viral anyway. I knew he was REALLY feeling bad when he wanted to lay down on the futon. He NEVER lays down to rest. I ended up taking him the next day because they just kept popping up all over him. Luckily they didn't hurt or itch though. They said it was viral and it would just have to run its course. Poor little man!

Red Rock

Sunday, August 19, 2012

The girls went with my parents to Red Rock today to have a picnic and hike. They loved exploring and being wilderness girls!!


Tooth Fairy Double Whammy

Saturday, August 18, 2012

The girls both noticed yesterday that thy had wiggly teeth so they both worked furiously to get them out. And they both succeeded! The Tooth Fairy just had to make one stop for 2 teeth!

Happy Birthday Dad!

Friday, August 17, 2012

We had my Dad's birthday party tonight. It's always so fun getting together with everyone to eat and swim. Which seems to be all we do in the summer! Happy Birthday Dad!
Noah wasn't such a big fan of the Key Lime pie but he did thoroughly enjoy eating the whipped cream straight out of the can!

Sigh...

Thursday, August 16, 2012

Now that Noah is figuring out the whole potty training thing he has found great joy in learning to aim at things. Boys!

Bed Hog

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

Noah came and crawled in bed with us at some point during the night. I had my back to him and kept feeling him kick me at various points through the night. Annoyed, I finally rolled over and this was how he was sleeping. Completely sideways and with his feet on my pillow. Awesome.

SNAKE!!

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

When I was running with my friend Keelie tonight I was off in Lala Land thinking and talking when she jumps and screams and this is what was not too far in front of us in the road. It was HUGE! And in the middle of a neighborhood! It kept going and was going into someone's backyard. So glad I don't live there!

La Croix

Monday, August 13, 2012

This is my new favorite drink. It's just sparking water with a hint of flavor with no sugar or anything added. I love it but most people hate it because it's not sweet at all. But it has gotten me of Diet Dr. Pepper (for the moment at least) so I'm happy with it.

Hottest Half Marathon

Sunday, August 12, 2012

Me and Keelie ran in the Hottest Half marathon this weekend in Dallas and it was awesome! It actually was cloudy and much cooler than normal. We felt great and kept a good pace. We both be our PR's and finished in 2:12!

Grape Stomp and Wine Festival

Saturday, August 11, 2012

Not to far from the country house a vineyard was having a grape stomp! Me and Holly were so excited and had wanted to go since the last time we were here and saw that it was this weekend. You got to take a hayride around the vineyard, stomp grapes and then put your footprints on a shirt. They also had a wine tasting and sparkling grape juice for the kids. So fun!
And I love this picture of London, Macy, and Mackenzie. They love each other so much and it's written all over their faces.



Build A Bear and National S'more Day!

Friday, August 10, 2012

London had her birthday party at Build A Bear and of course the kids thought it was awesome. Noah really did love his Woody monkey but he was over waiting on all the other kids. Happy Birthday London!
That night we went to stay at the country house and saw that it was National S'more Day. So whatcha gonna do?! Duh! Make s'mores!

Precious Fallyn!

Thursday, August 9, 2012

As glad as we were to see all the Walker clan we couldn't wait to get out hands on precious little Fallyn. She is so adorable and took being held by a lot of little kids so well!

Broke AC

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Something ALWAYS happens before we go in vacation. You would think we would learn a lesson but we never do. Tonight we came home and our house was ridiculously hot because our AC decided to stop working. So we got to sleep in a hot house the night before we left because no one could come out before we left. Needless to say we didn't waste anytime leaving the next morning.

Neck Pillow

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

I bought the kids neck pillows so they could sleep in the car coming back from Houston. So cute!


Happy Birthday Jason!

Monday, August 6, 2012

Today we celebrated Jason's birthday by having a Family Fun Day! We went to Red Coyote and Jason got fitted for new running shoes, had lunch at Hideaway, went to the Cowboy Hall of Fame and then spent the evening at my parents house with swimming, dinner and ribbon cake!

Genius Crayons

Sunday, August 5, 2012

Every time we go out to eat Noah's crayons at some point end up rolling off the table and into the floor which then results in him being mad and whiny until we find them. It sucks. Whoever thought up these crayons is a genius and they should be mandatory in all restaurants!


Southwest Scorcher 10K

Saturday, August 4, 2012

We had such a fun day today celebrating our 11th anniversary! Who would have ever thought we would want to run in a 6.2 mile race together FOR FUN. But we did. And... I won 1st place in my age group an Jason won 3rd!! Oh yeah! Then we had a leisurely breakfast at the worlds smallest and most ghetto IHop in Lawton and went to a movie. We were talking about how we must be getting old considering that was the fun day we had planned but we wouldn't have changed a thing!

Doggie Burrito

Friday, August 3, 2012

Kate likes to sleep on our futon and she the girls thought she needed to be all wrapped up and tucked in the blanket she was laying on. She is such a good sport! She barely even noticed.


Pic App

Thursday, August 2, 2012

My friend Natalie showed me this new awesome app so I can make collages for our blog and not have to use so many individual pictures. I love it!




Potty Training Adventure

Wednesday, August 1, 2012

Noah is full on into potty training now and even though he likes underwear this is how he much prefers to be now. Nakey-Nakey!


Sick Kenz

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

Poor Kenzie woke up sick again this morning. For some reason she has been waking up with an upset stomach. She throws up, sleeps on the couch a couple hours and then wakes up good as new. At least it doesn't last long.

Grape Bowl

Monday, July 30, 2012

My friend Keelie got this for me after I was eyeballing it at a garage sale. I love it's funkiness and that it's plastic, so Noah can't break it. Now we have a bowl of fresh grapes out that's a great healthy snack for the kids!

Sick.

Sunday, July 29, 2012

Noah saw this coyote skin in Jason's hunting closet. He immediately loved it. Jason was so exited and hung it in Noah's room so he can enjoy it all the time. I'm so excited about that....

Stovetop Popcorn

Saturday, July 28, 2012

For whatever reason there are odd cooking things that intimidate me for no good reason. One was making stovetop popcorn. I finally conquered that today! And it wasn't hard at all. I used coconut oil and it was sooooo good! Family movie night!

Falls Creek 5K

Friday, July 27, 2012

I am so proud of Jason! He has been doing so well with his running and he ran the Falls Creek 5K this morning. And if you have ever been to Falls Creek you can image how incredibly difficult that would be since the entire camp is up and down huge hills. Great job dear!

Never Ending Peaches

Thursday, July 26, 2012

This has been my life since Saturday. Peeling and peeling and peeling. This is just a fraction of how many we had total. So far I have frozen a ton, made peach sorbet, peach jam, peach crisp, peach leather, and we have been eating them like crazy.

Happy Birthday Fallyn!!

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Sweet little Fallyn was born today!! She is so adorable and her big sister London loves her. I can't wait to see this sweet thing!

Fancy Nancy Tea Party

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

The girls look forward to the Fancy Nancy tea party the library has each summer. They love getting all dressed up and both of them got to see school friends they hadn't see all summer!


Perfect Mug

Monday, July 23, 2012

I am ├╝ber picky about my coffee mugs. I needed on to keep at work and I found this gem while garage saleing.

Kate and Macy

Sunday, July 22, 2012

Kate is Macy's TV buddy. Macy loves to cuddle and Kate loves to have her belly rubbed. Win-win!

Peach Harvest

Saturday, August 21, 2012

The peaches were finally all ripe so we
got the girls out to help us pick. We knew there were quite a few but we had NO idea how many. In the first picture you can see how the tree is drooping because it has so many peaches. We picked and picked and picked. And ended up with an entire swimming pool full!!

Duncan Wide Garage Sale!

Friday, July 20, 2012

Me and my Mom and sister hit up the garage sales like we do every year and as always found tons of treasures!! My favorite was this ab roller. Jason has been using one at Crossfit and now he has his very own! Of course he was super excited about that.


First Peaches

Thursday, July 19, 2012

We picked our first peaches today!! YUM!


Katie's Kids Camp

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

Macy spent 4 days at a church camp in Byers this week. She LOVES summer camp! Even though this one was shorter she made some great friends and had a blast. Poor girl was so tired all the way home she cried because she wouldn't get to see her friends again. She was SO tired!

Nakey Nakey

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

I love his cute little naked hiney!!

Sunrise, Sunrise

Monday, July 16, 2012

Every Monday and Thursday I get up before work to run. It's SO hard getting up at 6 but it's the coolest time of the day and seeing this always makes it worth it!

Family Night At Fuqua

Sunday, July 15, 2012

The kids went to FBC Duncan's VBS this week and they had a family night at Fuqua park with pizza, face painting and rides at Kiddieland. All my kids favorite things! Noah cracks me up. Most kids his age are freaked out by getting their faces painted but he loves it! He sits so still and lets them do it. He can't stand for his sisters to do something and him not get to do it!


Velma 5K

Saturday, July 14, 2012

A group from our church ran in the Velma 5K today. It was so fun to have a big group to run with! I wanted to finish in under 30 minutes and my time was 28:08, so I was REALLY happy with that. Jason finished in 31 minutes. It was a great race. Macy and Noah did the 1 mile walk with some friends from church so it was near they got to participate too.
