My first 5k

A few weeks ago I completed my first 5k! a few months ago when the kids started preschool, I decided that I wanted to go to the gym for my free time. In order to get motivated not to miss a day, I downloaded a couch to 5k training program on my Ipod. It was designed for non runners to be able to complete a 5k. Since it seemed prefect for me, I took the challenge to try it. 8 weeks later, I finished the Santa Clarita 5k. I was not prepared for how fun it would be. There were so many people and the energy was amazing. I ran most of the time and had a personal best time. When I came to the finish line, I had a great cheering crowd waiting for me. I can't wait to do the next one. That's weird for me to say that, but its true!

Halloween 2009

This year we had a fun and busy Halloween. We attended my local twins club Halloween party, my parents wards Trunk-or-Treat and our own wards party. This gave Bridget and Ethan many chanced to dress up and wear their costumes. Ethan was a fireman and Bridget was a lady bug. I was really surprised how much they loved dressing up and wearing their costumes. Bridget even wore her lady bug hat the whole time! They also really got a hang of trick or treating really fast. It was so exciting to see them walk up to a house, knock and hold out their bags with such excitement. I already can't wait for next year.
