Playing catch up

Honestly can't remember when the last time I blogged was. I've been busy but also have been sleeping a lot. Kind of wishing I was a bear so that I could hibernate. Wouldn't that be nice. :D

On to Thanksgiving. To say the least it was one of the nicest ones I've had in a while. I was with my family and it was just do you say, it was fabulous and I felt all warm and cozy the entire time. Took my sewing machine over and created a few projects with my niece. Of course I didn't take pictures, forgot. I got to spend it with both of my boys. It's hard having big boys, even harder having to share them not only with their dad but now the oldest has a g.i.r.l.f.r.i.e.n.d who is also requesting his presence at her family events. Yeah it's not fun, but I know some people are saying let go, I am saying NO. I'm not ready. Oh the food was totally to die for. My sister Veronica did all the cooking and everything was just perfect.

Thanksgiving 2009 - Me with my boys

Thanksgiving 2009 - The Family

Las Vegas Half Marathon

Not sure how I did it or maybe I had nothing to do with it, but Mark completed his first half marathon with me - The Inaugural Las Vegas Rock n Roll Marathon.

27, 600 people participated in this race. There were showgirls, Bengal tigers, skydivers, and fireworks, all this at the start line. I've done quite a few Rock n Roll marathons, but never had I see all this go into a Start Line spectacular kind of show. It kind of makes sense now why they are pushing the price of the marathon up. Would I do it again, maybe - but for $150 I'd have to think about it. The course it self was awesome, it was a flat and we totally ran on Las Vegas Boulevard the whole time. I have driven the strip before but you miss a lot when you drive it. I was like oh I didn't know that store was there or better yet where did that hotel come from. The best part was the drunko's on the course cheering us on. Not sure what was funnier the crazy people who were up at 4:00 am getting ready for this race or watching people come out of the casino's with their beers cheering us on. You CAN DO IT...YOU CAN DO IT ALL NIGHT LONG. I was like...Wrong movie. LOL.

Committed To Cure Cancer. My friend Christy asked us to wear blue shirts with the quote on it in honor of her aunt Drena, unfortunately her aunt lost her battle and passed away on Friday.

Race Photos - the funniest ever and oh so cheesy.
I've made fun of my friends, crossing the finish line with your man and holding hands..really? BARF.
Yeah look at me. SO CHEESY!

To top it off..I wore leg warmers. I swore to take them off as soon as I warmed up. Umm.. it never happened. My sister called me Rainbow Bright I laughed and said Really? So I guess looking at the photos, yep I had Rainbow Bright Legwarmers on but at least I was warm.

And more cheesy photos. I woke up on Monday and saw Mark's medal hanging on his side of the room. I was like look at him so cheesy and yet totally adorable at the same time. So below are our his and her's medals. He has a lot of catching up to do. According to him this is his first and last half marathon..yeah I don't think so.

7 more business days and counting...until I am on vacation AGAIN. 2 weeks of catching up on my scrapbooking. Yeah imagine that. al le al le Alleluia.

By the way..totally found myself dancing in the grocery to those darn Christmas carols. My feet were moving my butt was doing this wiggle action.. does this ever happen to you? Hahaha yes I crack myself up.
