The photographer at WEE School was nice enough last year and this year to take a picture of Austin and Blake together. While I love their individual photos, I really love to see them together. I would also pay good money to know the secret of getting Austin and Blake to look the camera and smile - AT THE SAME TIME!
Lowe's Build and Grow Workshop
Austin and Blake were still a bit young to fully understand how to put their cars together, but they tried! They looked pretty cute in their aprons too.
Happy Birthday to Me!
Austin and Blake took me to Marble Slab to celebrate my 33rd birthday! Austin didn't love the cold, but we had a great time.
CHARLOTTE THUNDER ROAD MARATHON
On November 16, I completed my second marathon. I have to admit that I have the bug now and am looking forward to running #3. Any recommendations?
Birthday Party at My Gym
God bless the employee who has to clean out the ball pit. Can you find Austin and Blake?
St. Jude Give Thanks, Walk. 2013
Austin, Blake and I have participated (they rode and I walked) in this charity walk before, but we did not quite make it to the finish line this time. I knew that Austin and Blake would reject their stroller at some point, but I wasn't quite ready. We actually had to quit in the middle. Austin and Blake were not going to stay in their stroller and they could not make the three mile walk. Oh well! We raised money for St. Jude and that was the important thing.
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is an incredible place located in Memphis, TN. It is also the national philanthropy for my sorority, Tri Delta. I actually had the opportunity to visit a few years ago with a group of Tri Deltas. It was incredible!
Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child
Austin, Blake and I packed our shoe box and dropped it off to be sent to a little boy in another country. We also included a note and a picture of our family. This might turn into an annual tradition...
