Happy birthday, sweet baby girl!

Well, my baby’s turning one tomorrow.  Absolutely unbelievable.  I mean, it is seriously inconceivable to me that in one year we have gone from this

to this

to this

to this


Kate has been the most wonderful little addition to our family.  She is sweet, smart, funny and busy, busy, busy.  Not a day goes by that Chris and I don’t thank God for her.  So, happy birthday darling Kate.  You are dearly, dearly loved by so many people!

A brief birthday preview

I’ll post more pictures later, but I wanted to post a couple of videos from Kate’s party on Saturday (she got her party early – lucky girl!).  We had such a great time and are so thankful for such a sweet little girl.  We absolutely cannot imagine life without her and feel so blessed to have her in our lives… what a sweetie!

Thanks to Beth for being in charge of the camera during the party… you’re great!

Oh, and how sweet is it that Kate shared her cake with me?!  : )

Swine Flu Recovery Half Marathon

Exactly six weeks ago I missed out on doing the half marathon I’d been training for with friends.  I was quite upset about this since my goal had been to run another one before Kate turned one (which is in a week and a half).  On Thursday my friend Candice and I decided that we would run one today.  So, we had a couple of days to prepare.  : )  Both of us have to continued to run a little in the last six weeks, but not much.  Candice ran seven miles once.  I ran six miles once.  We’ve run four miles together a few times.  You get the picture.  BUT, we did great!  We both ran our best times yet, we were able to talk the entire time (except between miles 10.5 and 11.5… that was a tough one), and most importantly, we finished!!!
