Happy birthday, T. Willy!!

T. turns 9 tomorrow! We have been so blessed to have him in our lives, and we hope that he will continue to grow up the happy and sweet boy that he is.

Our plans tomorrow involve me going to school to eat lunch with him, cupcakes for his class, and bowling and pizza with friends. It should be a lot of fun!

The Big Man has been helping T. learn a few new things around the kitchen. He has learned to make a breakfast burrito, so here are some pictures showing him doing it on his own.

Prom 2013? Check.

Another milestone has come and gone in Mk's life. She went to her Senior Prom tonight. We had a fun day getting ready. She had her hair done by her favorite stylist, she came home and got dressed, and then we went to a couple of places for pictures.

I may be biased, but she looked beautiful! She and her boyfriend, Z, both looked great and seemed to have a really good time.

She is now home safely in bed, and I should be sleeping, but I fell asleep for a little while, but now I'm wide awake. So I'll post here and hopefully catch a few winks before church.

A good cause

T. Willy and I walked our first 5K today. His school sent home some paperwork a few weeks ago, and I thought it would be doable. I've wanted to do one, and this seemed like the perfect one to start.

We had a great time. I had two goals: finish under an hour and not to finish last. Both were close, but we accomplished them. For quite awhile, T. ran ahead, but it was in a neighborhood with plenty of people watching, so he was safe. At the end, he stayed with me and a girl who was keeping pace with me. I'm just so proud of both of us and wondering when the next one will be!
