Thanksgiving in the Shop!

We had quite the gang over to Kevin & Judy's house so we warmed up the shop and laid downold carpet to make it cozy & we had dinner & a movie(slideshows of the kids growing up)! It was good! By the way Briley looks just like Bryce's toddler pictures but without the red hair.

Newer pictures

These were taken the other day of our old living room space being opened up to our new living space. The other picture is of the new hallway leading to the new bedrooms, laundary room and bathroom. It use to be Briley's closet space. They put the windows in yesterday & the electrician is going to finish his work next week so they can start insulation, siding, & drywall. It is finally starting to come along. We aren't going to be in it by Christmas since they are behind schedule so I am keeping my fingers crossed for the end of the year!!!

I Did it!!!!

So yesterday was my run & I did it!! We went up to Boise to run the Prison Break half marathon which is 13.1 miles. I ran a little better than I thought I would especially with how cold & windy it was. My goal was to run it in 2 hours 40-45 min. My time was 2 hr 40min & ?seconds. So I made my goal time. Let me remind you all that I am not fast & that is ok I was just running to finish & accomplish a goal I had set for myself. My Dad asked me if I was going to run another one & I don't quite know- too soon to tell!! I will keep running a little though.

Still Running

Yep- in case anyone was wondering if I was still running, I am!! In fact the half marathon is in a couple of weeks. I hope can make it through the last 2 miles. It is 13.1 miles and I can do 10 ok, but the last 2 miles were hard on me the time I ran 13. We will see. I took my parents dog with me yesterday when I ran 10 miles. Lets just say I don't think he knew what he was getting into. My mom had to give him an asprin last night!! Ha, Ha!! Wish me luck. I don't care how fast I go, just as long as I finish!!

Carson started preschool in September & is loving it. He told me one day he wants to go there every day all day. I failed as a mom & forgot my camera on his first day of preschool so the only photos I have are on my phone. :( He is doing well & thinks he is pretty big stuff. Love you little buddy!!

Boise Zoo

We went up to Boise for the day, went to the zoo & the Discovery Center! The kids had fun!

Crazy Carson


Carson is quite the busy boy these days. He loves playing out side with his friends, looking for worms, catching grasshoppers, playing in the dirt, playing with his kittens, you name it. He got to go camping & ride 4-wheelers a few weeks ago, ride a horse by himself, and he is becoming a brave little swimmer. I love him so much!!

So I just have to toot my own horn here. I just ran 8 miles on Friday!!! That is a great fiat for me. I have never ran that far before EVER & I didn't stop at all!! I also ran 6 miles last week. I hope my body will let me keep this up because this has been a great experience being able to push myself to make it happen. I will have to post some of our latest pictures of the kids and the family next time because I forgot my camera!

RUN Shelly RUN

So I decided to start running! Actually I decided to start training for a half marathon. Yes you heard me right. My roommate from college ran one this year and she inspired me(thanks Rian!!). So I started running 2 wks ago. So I haven't ran in like 2+years and I haven't done too bad. I haven't gotten any faster, but I am still running & on Saturday when I run one of my longer runs I felt like I could keep going. So I will keep you posted. By my running schedule I am suppose to be able to run 8 miles in 3 weeks from yesterday so we will see how it goes!! Anyone want to come running!! Seriously it is always better with a running partner!

I got to go to lunch with my good friend Amanda, Bryce took me to dinner after the priesthood session of conference, I got to go shopping on Friday for myself-all by myself:), & Carson helped dad make me a cake. Carson also made me a lot of hearts out of playdoo!! My husband always trys to make it special for me on "my day" & I always appreciate him for that! I have a lot of people who love and care about me & I am greatful for them all! Thank you to all for making it another great day!

Briley is one

Briley turned 1!!!
We had two little parties/cake eating events, one with just us & one with the grandparents & Jess. She likes cake- especially the frosting!! She is starting to really take off with her walking & wow does she have a personality to punch. Got to love this cute little thing.
