This One's For The Girls!!!

Well, I know this is usually a blog about my Miranda, but today was a special day for me. I got to walk in the Susan G. Komen Race for the very first time! The theme this year was "This One's For The Girls"! It was exhilarating!!! I was so pumped the entire time I was there! It is an awesome thing to do if you haven't already done it! I plan to do this again next year! I can't tell you in words how good it felt to be a part of such a good cause! I even got to do a video for the Channel 4 news. They call it "Why You Race" and they ask us to tell them in a video why we raced for the cure! I was so nervous when we did it(a co-worker of mine was in it with me). She made me do all the talking though.LOL It felt good after I did it and am anxious to see it on their website. I hope I didn't sound stupid. That is the most spontaneous thing I have done in YEARS!!! It is so not like me to grab a microphone and talk on camera.LOL Anyway, I have attached some pics of this great event, but let me tell you that these pictures of the crowd doesn't do it justice. You have to just see it yourself in real life. It was an awesome experience that I will remember for a very long time! Well, I have been up since 4:00 this morning, which would make this about 18 hours ago, so I guess I need to go to bed. I have church in the morning!LOL

Happy 4th Birthday Miranda!!!

We had Miranda's birthday party this past Saturday at the Gurdon Park. I can't believe that it rained pretty much all morning off and on. It has been beautiful weather until that day. Today(Sunday) is beautiful just had to be the day of her party. Just my luck! The kids still had a good time at the park and played as if it weren't cold and wet. I am just glad that it didn't rain on them while they were playing. Miranda got a lot of presents and had fun with her friends and relatives. I can't believe how big she is getting! My baby is a little girl now! She will still be my baby though.....always and forever!!! Oh, and her big present that we got her was a trampoline. The grandparents chipped in with Me and Scottie and got it for her! She loved it!

I'm leavin' on a jet plane!!!

Hey everyone! I am sorry that I haven't added to the blog in a few weeks. It has been a crazy couple of months. Miranda and I went to California and had a good time until Miranda got sick. We got to go to the ocean and she loved it!!! We saw so many things there. Miranda loved the water too, even though it was freezing cold! The weather was pretty chilly too, for what we are use to. My Aunt doesn't even have an air conditioner in her house. They don't really need it!LOL Crazy, huh?! We also got to go to the Oakland Zoo and Miranda had a great time there. They also surprised Miranda with a little birthday party since it was going to be in a couple of weeks from then. It was very nice of them! We had cupcakes and she got to open presents. We are glad to be back home, but it was a nice visit too. Oh, and I almost forgot......Miranda LOVED the plane ride! I was so proud of her!!! I can only fit 5 pics at a time on this blog thing, so I had to pick one for every little event we did. The first one is her on the plane if you couldn't tell! Hope you enjoy!
