This past weekend we had a great time doing a 2 mile race and the kids did a fun run. It was a really neat race because they had a special division for moms that were pushing jogging strollers. I pushed Gabe and Leah in the jogger and Hannah ran along with me. She ran the first mile of the race and then sat on the front of the stroller for the second half of the race :) It was chilly but we had a great time! And I got first in the jogging stroller division. I have to say I felt really cool!

This year for Halloween I really wanted to do a theme with the kids. I thought it would be really fun to match them up :) But they were not really into it, and what fun is Halloween if your mom makes you dress up in costume that you don't love? So instead this year we had a gingerbread baby, Fiona from Shrek and Link from Legend of Zelda. I was super proud of myself because I only spent about $15 total on their costumes! I got Hannah's Fiona at the surplus store for $4 (score!!) and I made Gabe's and Leah's. I got the fleece for theirs when it was marked down really cheap at Joanns :)
We had trick or trunk at our church inside because it was nasty weather outside. The kids had a fantastic time and we didn't even have to freeze :)

Today was such a fun day! Nick took the day off of work and we loaded the kids up in the van and went to the zoo. It has been such nice weather this week and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day. Warm and sunny with a nice breeze...it doesn't get much better than that! Here are some pictures from our day :)
I am so thankful for days like today where we can all relax and simply spend time as a family. It really makes me appreciate the blessings that my husband and children are!
