What we've been up to

We've had big things going on at our house lately....

Lots of crawling, and getting very very fast...

Pulling and standing up on anything and everything in sight......

Laughing our heads off.........

Trying to taste anything in sight......

And growing lots of teeth, we're up to 6 now....

Gosh, time flies when you're having fun!!! We love you and miss you!!!

Wahington DC

We really did it, we ran a marathon!! Woo hoo! We had a great time in Washington, it was a perfect weekend for 26.2 miles. We spent a couple of days seeing the sights and eating good food, then on Sunday we had our race. I'll be honest it was pretty tough, but I'm so glad lance ran with me. It gets pretty boring running that long. Becca ran it too, and we are soo proud of her...she qualified for the Boston marathon. Lance and I were not quite that ambitious, but we finished and we did pretty good for our first time. I think I prefer the half marathons, but I really think that everyone should try to do a whole one at least once :) Here's a few pictures from our trip. I thought I took more, and now that I realize I didn't I'm really mad at myself. But at least we got a few good ones....

Going to the expo to pick up our packets, it was crazy. But I guess with 30,00 runners things do tend to get out of hand.

We tried to go a little sightseeing....On Pennsylvania Ave, Lance eating as usual
In front of the white house. Who knew you had to arrange a tour with your congressman months in advance to get any closer than this.

Here's some pictures of our big girl! She is getting 4 teeth on top and 2 on the bottom, and loves eating her cheerios. We love our Kendall!!

new pictures

I finally had some time to put some new pictures up, I was getting really sick of the old ones. But we haven't really done anything too exciting lately. So I just thought I put up a little update. All is well in Tennessee, I think we have skipped fall and went straight into winter. It has been freezing! We had to hurry out and get Kendall some warm clothes and even had to buy her mittens so she won't freeze to death. We are busy as ever, Lance is working like crazy, and I just finished up my fall season. Oh we have been busy running tons, our marathon is this coming weekend in DC and we are very excited about it. I'm getting sick of training, but I'm super excited to see how it goes. Thats about all with us, hopefully after this weekend we'll have lots of pictures and lots to talk about. Yesterday after church we took some family pictures before we changed, here are a few cute ones.

I've been trying to take lots of pictures lately. I need to practice so I can actually take a few good pictures instead of thousands of terrible ones. Anyways, here is a little of what we've been up to the past little while.

We were able to go to the temple, we are in the Columbia South Carolina district here. We had never been to the Columbia temple so it was exciting to go to a new one, we usually go to the Atlanta one because Lance has some family there that we can stay with. We convinced Jeff and Lynn to go with us and they were kind enough to go through and then watch Kendall so Lance and I could go through together. It was so wonderful to be able to go! I'm envious of everyone that has a temple closer to them, I wish we could go more often.

It has been raining tons here, its been terrible. I feel like everyday it just gets more and more humid. But the other day I put Kendall in her rain coat and boots and just had to take some pictures. It was too cute. The coat is still a little too big, but the boots are just right and so adorable!

Kendall is all over the place lately. She is rolling and crawling everywhere. It's so fun to watch, but now we really have to keep an eye on her, she gets into everything.

This past weekend I wanted to go look at antiques, so we went down the road to a small town nearby and looked in all the shops. It was fun, but around here they call everything antiques, really most of it is just crappy garage sale stuff. But we went by this river and just had to snap a family picture. Again...practicing the whole picture thing :)

And then here is just another one of our sweet baby. She's so cute, I couldn't resist :)

Gosh, time has been flying by. I haven't been able to put any pictures up lately because our laptop is being really annoying and we had to get a new computer. But don't worry, we're up and running again. My baby is now 7 how time flies. At her 6 month checkup she was 16 lbs, and I forget how long, but she was pretty much around the 50th percentile for everything, she's growing like a weed.

We're all doing great, Lance is busy working, and school has started so I'm started to get busy again too. We're having fun and enjoying life. And excited for fall and getting to watch the leaves change color again. Fall is the best time of year here.

Anyways, here's some recent pictures of our little princess....

She's sleeping in her crib and doing good, but she can see over the ledge now. Sometimes we walk by her room and see these little eyes looking over begging to be picked up.

Zachs Wedding

Here are a few pictures from Zach and Elizas wedding and reception. It was beautiful, and I was so happy that we were able to be there for them. Except here's some advice, don't get married in Houston in is soooo hot. We were dying at the temple. Hopefully they got some really good pictures.
