Joy came to visit from Thailand! It's been almost 5 years since we saw her last. Joy lived with my family for 3 years while we were in high school. She was in the United States for 3 weeks, she came to Fresno and experienced Halloween with us. Joel was superman so we dubbed Joy "Lois Lane"....she really wanted to watch the kids trick-or-treat. My kids loved having her here, it went too fast! Olivia, Joy, Ellie

Grace is THREE... We celebrated with homemade mac and cheese for dinner and homemade cupcakes with vanilla frosting and pink sprinkles for dessert. This a picture of Grace and her most favorite friend, Drew. He came over and enjoyed dinner and dessert with us! Grace is fun, easy going (most of the time), absolutely loves Caillou, and never too far from her blankey and pacifier.

I did it...I survived...I was tired and hungry after completing the Disneyland half-marathon but mostly just happy I finished! I ran the 13.1 miles in 2 hrs 34 min. Pretty sure I could have run faster and improved my time a bit by not stopping to go to the bathroom and running faster thru all the Disney sites, but I ran a pace that felt good and I took it all in. Disneyland and California Adventure at 6 a.m. with no people just runners, surreal. Running thru Angel Stadium while listening to Five for Fighting's "100 years" surreal. Running with my best childhood friend, Kathy, surreal. So happy I did it! This weekend I'll run a 10k here in Fresno with another friend, then I'm not sure what's next. The romantic running with Josh isn't happening....maybe in the spring we will run a race togather, we will see.
