Let me start by saying that life has been CRAZY recently full of ups and downs. The holidays were, let me say, CRAZY, and quite the whirlwind.
Jim and I completed our first 10K on Thanksgiving morning, the Turkey Trot. Let me start by saying that it was FREEZING outside, and it rained/sleeted the entire time. Jim's cousin, Jackie, joined us for the race and totally rocked here. Jim finished in like 52 minutes, Jackie finished in 62 minutes and I finished in 64 minutes after a long break to puke three time from overheating but here are a few pictures:

Christmas was amazing. We went to Christmas Eve Service together as a family, and then Jim and I put Madison to bed and stayed up drinking wine and wrapping her presents. I am hoping this will be a fun tradition to continue for us. Christmas day we spent the moring as a family and had breakfast and then my family came to visit. We had an awesome day. I cooked almsot the whole meal by myself. I decided next year I am making a lasgna ahead of time so I can spend time with my family.
The day after Christmas we celebrated with Jim's family and had a really nice time.

annual christmas shot and some other fun ones
Jim and I had a really nice NYE, my mom and dad took Madison for the night. We went to a party with friends, had a DD and slept in until 10am. I can't even tell you that last time I did that. We celebrated my birthday on the 10th, went the farm show and had a great time.
Madison is growing so quickly everyday. She is starting to string 2-3 words together, is hit or miss with sleeping, but is just a joy to be around everyday, that is of course if she's napped. LOL.
Until next time,
