Right before we moved, Parker's sister drove over from Virginia with her two girls for a quick visit. The boys had tons of fun with their cousins who were willing to play ninja's, transformers, and any other boy-ish game you can think of. The girls put on a great Easter Egg hunt (which Payton slept through) which the boys LOVED. Payton got her basket a little later and she was thrilled to get some girly toys.

I was talking to my sister, Whitni, back in August about how I started running again to lose some baby weight. She asked me if I would consider doing a half marathon and I said no. She then said, if you do a half marathon, I will buy your ticket to Texas to come run it with me. Done! Of course I would run a half to get a free ticket to see one of my sisters! I loathed the last few miles but, in the end, I ran it without stopping and I was super proud of myself. I am also proud that I have lost another ten pounds since these pictures were taken!
Before the race...
I can't lie, it felt good to cross the finish!
Victory tastes good!
This says I finished third...I actually finished ninth (I think) for my age group.

We got our first snow storm and it didn't disappoint! We got about ten inches of snow in nine hours. I played outside with the boys for an hour non-stop before the said they were cold. We tried to make a snow man but the snow wouldn't pack tight enough. Next time!

Merry Christmas to all! We had a wonderful day filled with love, laughter, and gifts! It is such a treat to have kids old enough to be excited when they wake up. Colton came into our room around seven in the morning hopping up and down asking to go down and open presents. We enjoyed every minute of the day and we hope you did too!
Batman toys! Every boys dream!
She didn't have a clue what was going on but she loved to tear and then eat the wrapping paper!
LAKERS t-shirt! Probably his favorite gift?! Kobe for life! (Also, we got to go to a Lakers game a few weeks ago as an early Christmas gift to ourselves. Kobe scored 42 points and it was amazing!)
New puzzles! ....Paxton's face says it all!!!
New P.J.'s from grandma and grandpa Lybbert. This is the only picture I am in....I have got to work on that....at least you can see my new earrings from my nice husband!
The boys got ninja turtle action figures and swords which are by far the favorite gifts. The swords haven't left their sides since they opened them!

Paxton is three! This little guy has been such a blessing to our family--we were more than thrilled to spoil him on his special day. We started out with fresh buttermilk pancakes in the shape of the number three.
This is Claire. I have decided that She and Pax will get married. He was SO HAPPY about new cars!
Parker has to work one Saturday every quarter to count inventory and it happened to fall on Pax's birthday. Pax was thrilled when dad came home and we left for dinner at Red Robin!
Mom and Paxton. Love this kid!
The whole team at dinner.
I don't think Pax liked the birthday singing but he was all over the free ice cream!
Ready to open presents.
A new shirt. He also got a few books, Spiderman toys, and Captain America toys.
Paxton wanted a snowman cake. He and Colton helped me put on the snowflakes.
Love, love, LOVE this boy!

I donated my hair! Like, all of it. I have been wanting to donate my hair for a looonnnnggg time but refused to do it until I lost some weight (down 30 lb's after the initial 30 lb's I lost after having Payton! I have got to stop gaining so much weight during pregnancy...) because short hair styles are not so cute on an overly round face. I think this is the fifth time I have donated my hair and it was by far the most special. Parker's mother has breast cancer and she lost all her hair from chemo. I tried to find someone that could take my hair and make a wig for her but no one in the states makes wigs, it is all done over seas. This donation was in her honor and I will remember it forever! Love you, mom!
You read that right. Sixteen inches!
