Snow Day

Happy Thanksgiving in Tumwater, WA!!

We thought we would surprise Great Grandma Jane, and boy did we. We were also surprised when we showed up on November 24th to SNOW! (it never snows, and it really never snows in November in Tumwater). Gavin didn't exactly play in it, but he did go out on the deck and check it out. Yes he is barefoot - his choice. It was beautiful, and gone by the time we left on Sunday.

It was a fun weekend and we had a great time with family.

1 Year Photos

He's getting so big! He'll still always be our baby. Wendy Newman Studios took his studio pictures his first year, she did a great job!

Family Photos

Yesterday we attempted to take family photos for our Christmas cards. The weather and cloud cover was ideal for picture taking, we love our camera, bought a tripod to make it all happen, headed out to an ideal location. After 3 tries we settled on downtown Gilbert. We quickly realized that getting a 16 month old to cooperate for pictures is not easy, and depending on the day/time - can be impossible. Here are a few we took, when we got him smiling - he was great. Getting all 3 of us together smiling, not so great. Oh well. We'll come up with something for the family Christmas Card.

Arizona Susan G. Komen 3 Day Walk

We did it! Thanks to all of our supporters, friends, family - we couldn't have done it without you. We were sore & tired, but that only lasted a day or two. Hopefully our hard work will leave lasting impression much longer than that. And yes, we will be doing the walk again in 2011, hopefully with some added team members.

Day #2, Hurt is not as good :)

We've successfully completed Day #2 of the Susan G. Komen 60 Mile 3 Day walk. Our legs are a little more sore, our feet have a few more blisters, and we have a little bit more of a tan. It is all part of the experience and we wouldn't trade it for anything. The supporters that showed up today were amazing. We received so many goodies and giveaways in Old Town Scottsdale our hands were full when we got through there. Thanks to the Girl Scouts that made ribbons, bows, bracelets, and hand written cards - we could feel the love! The highlight of our day was our special visitors Samara, Gavin, and Mom!! Today was over 22 miles and seeing all of you made it easier to get through the day.
We appreciate everything you all have done, and your continued support.
If you're in Phoenix and want to join us for closing ceremonies tomorrow you can check out the details at the Susan G. Komen site.
Love to all!

It Hurts So Good!!

Day #1 of the 60 mile 3 day walk has come to a close. I'm sitting in a massage chair surfing the internet. They have everything here at the 3 Day Camp. We are tired, a little sore, but ready for good food at dinner. We always meet some wonderful people and are looking forward to making some new friends tonight.
Love and thanks to all for your support! Pictures will follow when we get home.
