Well, I am finally starting a blog.  I have been meaning to do this for a couple of years now. I think that this will be a great way for my kids to look back at their childhood and see how we spent it as a family.  Long distance friends and family will be able to keep up with us too.

We just wrapped up Thanksgiving weekend.  We had a great time here in KC on Thanksgiving Day and then made it to Springfield for an overnight trip this weekend.  Jude had to go to the ER at midnight last night because he had an asthma attack but he is much better now.

We have a ton going on (as usual).  We are in the middle of remodeling our home.  We are finishing up painting the kitchen cabinets and next up is laying the wood floors.  We are trying to drag this house out of the 1970’s.  We plan to do it all ourselves so I will probably be posting many pictures of our progress.

I am officially starting marathon training tomorrow with my friend Heather.  We ran 2 half marathons this month and are planning to do a full marathon in April.  My goal has always been to run a marathon before I turn 40 and well….I turn 40 in 1 year.  Unbelievable (the 40 part).

Jeremy just told me that he plans to post from his perspective.  We will see if that actually happens.  Ha.

I love this picture of Jude and Ava.  It describes their relationship perfectly….always together and always scheming.
