Easter 2014 {@home}

He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!
Happy Easter

We went to church early Sunday morning. 
then were back home by 10.

The rest of the day was spent at home. Hunting eggs, eating candy.

After we hid 60+ eggs, and the boys overindulged in candy from their basket...
We then spent some time peeling them for deviled eggs. 
Corbin helped peel too, while Cooper played the Wii.

It was a quiet day spent together.
Uber grateful for the gift of eternal life. Happy Easter!

We've Been Running

2014 has been about getting healthy. And the journey to staying healthy! I participated (and won) in a friendly "get healthy challenge" with some friends at church. I won for the most weight lost and healthy lifestyle points for the 8 weeks. That competition really helped make me intentional about eating and exercise. I read the Daniel Plan book, and educated myself about food. I started logging every.single.thing i ate or drank. counting the calories of it all. reading all labels on all foods. avoiding all processed junk. it's a total change of thinking! And I'm so grateful for the change! I started out walking and now I love to run. Thankfully Adam likes to do races with me too! A few weeks ago he had to be in San Antonio for a spring football scrimmage, so we signed up to run a 5K and went as a family. Super fun! The boys were safe hanging out til we finished. It would be great if we could get them trained to run with us. Soon!
 Here are a few pics taken at the event. John McBrayer Photography: 2014-04 Fiesta Especial &emdash;

Adam struggled a little with this race.
I was pumped to finish 5th among the females! 34:19 right after him. 
He's usually super fast! That's pretty good for slow me. 
For now I am content finishing races. 
I am not too concerned with my time per minute.

This was our first 5K of the year. It was pretty chilly that morning. But I'm so glad we signed up and RAN! 

Wicked Wine Run at the Spicewood Vineyards. Adam flew threw the course in under 29 minutes. I finished in 34 something. It was a TOUGH course. And much warmer and humid than it has been. Surprisingly the wine at the end was SO VERY GOOD. 
We took a bottle home. 
Yummy Tempranillo!

The Longhorn 10K I did by myself. 
It was a great challenge for me. Lots of hills and LONG. But I felt great afterwards. 
My time was around 1 hour 4 minutes. And I had to stop for a potty break. 

Whew that was a lot of races. We were racing fools in March and April.
Here's to running!!

sleepy acolyte
we have attended the 8:15 church service since these guys were really little
this one was especially tired last Sunday
I caught him sleeping on the job :)
school is a lot of work for kids these days
they are expected to do a lot even at just 7 years old
there are some evenings I can't bear the thought of more homework
so this night we went on a walk to the park instead
Corbin's been trying his hand at some potholder looms
he's done a great job
he is good at busy work projects
especially while riding in the car
this is why we can skip homework studies every once in awhile
these kids are smart
have you seen the new colorful kitchen appliances at Target
so pretty!
I love crock pots
don't need a new one but this one is so fun and colorful!
Friday spelling test time
they each have an "office" they set up to have privacy while they test
and duh keep away the wandering eyes
boys have a new pediatrician
we went for well check ups and flu mist this week
they were thrilled to have a male doctor now
they cut up together and talked like dudes do
pretty cool
I tried a new pumpkin bread recipe on Monday
oh my YUM!!
 this stuff turned out great
Check out Mel at The Larson Lingo... she has some yummy recipes
the state fair was a blast!
when I get around to it I'll do a post about the fair all it's own
good times!!

we sure had a great visit with my sister Tam
the boys are always smitten :)
happy weekending!
