Happy New Year...New Home.... and then some!

I can't possibly update everything that has taken place over the last month.... but I will say this... Happy New Year!! I'll try to catch you all up with some pics!
For starters, my sister-in-law, Janet and I ran in the Walt Disney World Marathon last weekend in Orlando! HOLY S***!! It was harder than childbirth!! I'm not kidding!! What an exhilarating and exhausting experience! I pushed my body to its absolute limit! I hit such a wall at mile 18... I really didn't think I could keep going for 8.2 more miles... but somehow I made it! And honestly couldn't be happier... I have always wanted to do a marathon, and what an amazing place to do it in!! Shoot, we ran through Cinderella's castle... incredible! I'm proud of us! San Diego here we come, we are so running another marathon at the end of May! I'm hooked!
Oh and I forgot to mention that we wore spandex... yep... we actually wore them!! Ha ha, I felt a little on the naked side, at least nobody knew us!!

Because I have been so bad at blogging the past few months, I'll just post from Halloween on... I know, lame! My little Carson was a Vampire for Halloween...(yeah, I'm a little obsessed with Twilight too!, I just thought he would make a cute mini Edward!) So my mother-in-law made him his little outfit and I must say he looked dashing =-) I even slicked his hair back, ha ha, by the end of the night it was sticking straight up!

Next came Christmas and my mom bought him a little Santa outfit, "Carson Claus" was precious! However, his hat didn't quite fit... this childs' head is off the charts.... literally! His height and weight are in the 90th and 95th percentiles respectively... his head... not so much, it's way off the charts!! Maybe that's why he talks so much and is so smart! Anyway, the hat didn't fit, we cut it and tried to make it work, I think it stayed on his head for 3 mins! He loved Christmas, it was nice to be home and share it with both of our families. The best part of the holiday for Carson was "The Polar Express"... he watched it everyday. He is such a boy because trains are his new obsession. It is so cute how much he loves Thomas and his little trains!

I know there is so much more to tell and show... I don't want to overwhelm anyone though!! I do have a little more time on my hands now that I am not working until March!! Oh yeah, and we moved back to Florida, and are living in a beach house. We have plenty of room, so if anyone wants a vay-cay.... come on out!! I'll have to take some pics of the beach and post them... WE LOVE LIVING HERE!!
