Turkey Trot

 Annette, Ryan, Alan and I ran a Turkey Trot in Anthem, CO Thanksgiving morning.  The weather couldn't have been better!  We drove to the race course in style, thanks to Kelly's rental vehicle.

Ready at the starting line:


And the runners are off!  This is the first community race I've been to that sends off runners in heats.


Kelly, Sharon and Jeremy were on little girl duty while the four of us ran.  It seems like they had a good time.



 Annette finished first with a sub 22:00 time! 


Ryan finished within the next minute after having thrown up on the course.  I'm told he also got sick after finishing, poor guy.  Hopefully this is a lesson to not eat spaghetti before running!


Alan and I brought up the rear in our group.  It wasn't a good "race" for either of us, and it's the first race that I haven't cared to see what my finish time was. However, this was the first chance we had to be be alone together since Faye was born.  So I like to look at it as a much needed date.

 
 Cambrie wanted so badly to run a race that Annette gave her race bib to Cambrie.  She gladly joined in the kids race and was so excited to cross the finish line. 


Turkey Trots really are my favorite part about Thanksgiving, especially when you get to do them with your family.

Big Girl!

Faye had her 4 month checkup today!  She weighed in at 14 pounds 7 ounces and measures 25 inches.  Holy Cow!  Healthy all around.  Faye had to get a few shots, and she handled it so well!  She stopped crying the moment I picked her up from the table.  What a good girl. 

The doctor suggested we try giving her some rice cereal, so we cracked out the high chair and gave it a go!


She ate a good few bites!

Four Months Old

It's crazy how life with a new baby means I keep track of time more.  It has been an official four months since Faye's birth!  She continues to grow and entertain us.  This week Faye has learned how to "play" with toys and can giggle on demand, if you know how to push the right buttons.  I love that this little lady can make me love her more and more every day.




I set up this activity center today for her to enjoy.  She's been loving it so far, and so have I!

Let it Snow!

Faye and snow have finally existed at the same time! 



She didn't seem to mind the snow, for the whole minute we were out side.


I felt bad for making my little girl stand outside with no socks on, so we quickly wrapped her up in a big, fuzzy blanket.

Great Things

As mentioned before, Faye is partial to Alan.  He can make her laugh on a daily basis. Me? I'm not that lucky.  But today I had a break through in getting giggles out of Faye!

You may recognize that we are watching Mythbusters on my laptop.  Today Faye's favorite word is "explosion."  7 times out of 10 she would smile when Jamie and Adam said "explosion" or when we said it.   I'm so proud of my little girl!
