I am thankful for God. I am thankful that He is there in all the things we do and that He remains faithful no matter what we do, because that's just who HE is! Thank you GOD!
I am thankful for my family, immediate and extended. Some people don't have family and we take them for granted alot.
I am thankful that God gave me a good man, scratch that an awesome man! He loves God with all his heart and I am so blessed to have a man that loves his family and wants to be a good dad and IS a great dad! There are so many dads out there that aren't or that don't want to be apart of their kids lives or that simply are too lazy to be a dad. I love that I don't have to ask him to "watch" our kids...um he's the dad, it's a shared responsibility and I love that he's always felt that way. He's not afraid of work and will do whatever it takes to provide for his family, lazy men are so annoying. I am just so very blessed!
I am thankful for my two boys. Jake is so sweet and so sensitive to everyone's needs and always wants to do good and is really disappointed when he doesn't. He is so smart, it just amazes Jackson and I each day. Stockton is amazing as well, yet in his own way. He is boy thru and thru and wants to help with anything you are doing, mainly daddy if he's working outside. He isn't scared of anything. I sometimes wonder if he knows deep down he may not live as long as a healthy child has the potential too because he lives each day to the fullest, doing whatever and not being scared of anything new.
I am thankful for a roof over my head and a car to drive. I am thankful for my job(s).
I am thankful for all my friends, (you know who you are) from dressing alike without knowing, to Twilight movies on opening night (even though we're missin New Moon on opening night), to the memories of writing stories in Coach White's computer class, to running the long runs and the short runs, being excited for new babies and lovin them all almost as much as my own, hanging at Starbucks (well when we had one), laughing until we cry, "spiked" peach tea, making cards or trying to because we can't stop talking or you are just plain slow ;), getting matching tattoos. There's a ton more but I better stop there.
I am thankful that I can run 1/2 marathons, thankful that my body allows me to do this.
I am thankful for so much but here's a list of simple stuff that comes to mind (not in any particular order) green tea lattes, air, sushi, a good hair cut and color, my dogs, water, flip flops, nice fitting clothes, babies that like to smile at me, days I get to spend with Jackson, baking with the boys, diet dr pepper, Lori, good family photos, desserts, tattoos, tv, movies, sharing joys with my friends and so much more.

I was feeling extra spectacular for this race, thank you God! And ran it in 1 hr and 34 min at a 10:09 pace. The good ole garmin watch said we ended up running 9.4 miles instead of the 9.3 and my time with the extra 10th was 10:02 pace. Taking that one since I'm not thinking the satelites are wrong :). Amy did so excellent for her first race past a 5K with 1 hr 44 min at an 11:13 pace. I'm so proud of her, that was awesome for the first long race!!! Jackson finished in 1 hr and 32 min and Jeff in 1 hr 30 min. We all had good runs and hope to run it again next year!!

Tanner sure was having fun even though his hands weren't diggin out the insides of a pumpkin, he probably would have had fun with that too. It took the boys longer than the rest of us so their pumpkins actually didn't get done but they did get their designs poked out.
Well I'm not sure of what else to say about the pumpkin carving...so I'll leave you with the finished projects. From left to right is Joanna's, Tyler's, Jackson's and mine.

They are getting along alot better now that we are on day 3. Kali still thinks she's boss, when he out weighs her by 20 or 30 lbs well see what she thinks then. Posting more adorable and funny pics of them.

Yep he's the one with his tongue sticking out....so funny! He comes home tomorrow morning. He's 13 weeks and in this picture he had just gotten the stitches taken out of his ears.
We've had Kali for 2 months now and she has literally doubled in size. She weighs 44 lbs now and is just a great dog. The puppies I have been around in the past, well she is nothing like a regular puppy. We go on a walk and she is so alert at what is going on around us, and at 5 months! She is amazing! I hope she likes Tank...we will soon see. Here is a recent picture of Kali.

Their own indoor boat that was actually a restaurant. There were fish and stingrays in that water.The next day we went to Downtown Disney and walked around. There was this restaurant called TRex it was just awesome! We didn't actually eat there we just toured the restaurant, not sure that I'd ever "toured" an eating establishment. However here are some of the cool pictures that didn't turn out so well. :(
That day Jackson was going to be busy for the evening and all day Friday so I drove to my cousin Lori's in Boca Raton. We were suposed to snorkle but it had rained and was super windy so we didn't get to. :( But here is the beach.
Yep it was a private beach...so sad that it rained that day! Well that's all for now, I'll finish the rest of the story another day.
