time flies

Last night as Camden was falling asleep, sprawled across me, Colby says, "gosh, he's so big - it wasn't that long ago he was just cradled in our arms." I nod and we talk about the fact that he will be a year old sooo soon. This year has gone so super fast for us. Our lives are so busy, it's frustrating to realize that the year has gone by so fast that we find ourselves wondering if we did enough, spent enough time with our kids, accomplished enough things, or made a difference somehow. Just last week a family member was sent to the hospital; I rushed out of my house, making phone calls and worried the whole drive there. Even though I knew she was okay, I couldn't shake the feeling, that I should have been around more, seen her more, talked to her more. How do we make enough time to do all the things we need to do? Colby and I have made more of an effort this year to each have more time for ourselves, whether its playing baseball or volleyball, fishing or hunting, or going dancing with the girls; time to do the things we love so we don't forget who we are. But what about all the other things? I guess it's one thing at a time. It's hard to accept the fact that I am not the person that I want to be. YET. I will be, someday...

Race For The Cure!

Hi all,
Life is busy.....but I'm slowing down and taking a few minutes to share this with you. Together with Rhonda's Renegades we will again be doing the 5k in Seattle. Colby joined our team this year too. I'm hoping you can help me make a difference by supporting me in this cause. You all know the drill, and you all know why I'm walking......

busy busy.

It seems like we are so busy these days. Which is weird, because not a whole lot has changed, I'm still working only 3 days a week...yet I feel like there is less time. Maybe it's because Camden is so mobile now that I'm constantly watching/checking on him because he isn't quite trustworthy. haha. At least with the weather halfway decent Cadynce has been able to go outside and play for a while.....hallelujah!! We need her to be able to play outdoors. She is just that kind of kid, needs to run and play with the dog and burn off energy......and get dirty. I'm sure before too much longer her brother will be right there with her and I'll be regretting wishing he was. I keep seeing the rain free days and wish I could get out there and start working in the yard, but it's still too cold to keep Cam out there for too long in the stroller. Besides he just got over a nasty nasty cold, and an ear infection. Something we definitely do not need to do over again.
Last weekend I got to hit up the Children's Place Outlet, one of my favorite kids clothes stores, and got some really really good deals. Fleece pants and sweatshirts for both kids for next winter for only $3.99 and $4.99 each piece! Also, got some shorts for Cadynce for .97 cents each at Old Navy, yes shorts for not even $1 dollar a pair! Why is it a pair of shorts or pants anyhow? Next on the to-get list are some things for the house. We recently painted the kids bathroom and now it needs a shower curtain, rug, new towel holder and t.p. holder and trim. Hopefully I'll find some screaming deals on those too.
Nothing much else to say, oh we did have some more snow Monday and Tuesday - weird huh? I'm ready for the sunshine!!!

Biggest Loser

Part of my new years resolution is to lose some more weight..but I don't get to see all of you all the time, so here is a couple of pics.

So this is from June 21, when we first started the biggest loser.

Here is me now:

So 19 pounds lighter....hopefully another 10 soon. Keep in mind, I don't usually wear make up and I don't usually straighten my hair - so that's an added bonus for you all. haha!
