Run or Dye

Since our last Christmas was kinda crazy with moving to Vegas I decided that this year needed to be better!! So when Ann told us about a Christmas - Run or Dye - 5K I knew the boys would love it & thought it was the perfect way to kick off the Holidays!! We had to wake up super early to get out to Sam Boyd Stadium in time. We bundled up in our best Christmas attire and off we went to run in 35 degree weather!! When we first got there I first thought what are we doing? only crazy people run in cold weather! (must be the desert rat in me!) but once we got moving it was perfect!! The kids had fun slapping hand prints on runners passing by and on each other!! Who new it could be so fun to get so dirty!!


In the morning at Mrs. Parkers Dustin made a cool headband with the longest Indian name ever on it!  Running kicking-jumping off a cliff, land on my feet SKUNK!! He would not smile for the picture he said Indians don't smile!
Later in the day Dustin's Kindergarten class did a cute program called "Pie & Poetry" in honor of Thanksgiving!! There's nothing cuter than a bunch of six year olds singing! It's an added bonus that we got some yummy pie too! Dustin kept looking and waving at us to make sure we were watching him!
I'm not sure how this happened, I thought for sure we wouldn't be hosting Thanksgiving for a while! Than we had to go and move into a big house again!! Oh well it's fun to get together and even more important for the cousins to bond and get to know each other!! The only bad part was the downstairs toilet almost overflowing and the upstairs toilet actually overflowing while Darin was "black friday" shopping in Mesquite!! This old house just couldn't handle all the bathroom visits, looks like we'll be changing all the toilets sooner than planned!!

Tickling the Ivories!

11-26-13 Dillon's piano teacher Joshlyn took Dillon back and today was his piano recital! He didn't do so well, he had to play without his book and he froze half way through! After the recital Dillon was upset that he had messed up but Mrs. Widdison's husband came over to Dillon and told him that he plays the piano during sacrament and that he messes up sometimes! He encouraged Dillon to keep playing and told him to practice hard!! I thought it was cool he wanted to comfort Dillon!!
