Turkey Trot

Molly and her friend Rachel from running club.

Early Thanksgiving morning I had the opportunity to watch my sister run in a 5K called Turkey Trot. We headed to the Target Center at about 7am that morning - I'm am so glad that the weather was nice out!

Crazy runners dressed like turkeys. I actually saw two girls dressed like drumsticks but didn't get my camera out in time.

The goal was to 'stuff the streets'. Thousands of people packed the streets ( I've never seen so much spandex in one place before!).

There's Molly!!

Hurray! She finished with a great time. Good job Molly!

Happy Birthday Jack!

The Birthday boy!

It is also Grandma Kathy's birthday, so we all celebrated together.
I caught Wes starting to open the presents - he wasn't sure if they could open presents without his help.

Jack and some of his new toys. He LOVES to play with balls.

Birthday cake! Not too sure at first.....

...maybe I'll try some....



With all the excitement going on we had forgotten to give Jack the present from us! Here his big brother is showing him how it works.

You Can't Beat Free!

Here at the College we were able to get the kids photos done for free during a Family Fun Night event. Not the best but, it does help when things are free!
Wes is at the stage where he doesn't want anything to do with his little brother. I wish we could have gotten them together but it would've ended in a fight of wills so I let it go!

Always in a happy mood - most days anyway : )

Typical ham ( I wonder where he gets it from??)

Oh my goodness we have puppies!!
I arrived home at 1pm on Friday and went into the shed to check on Skeet and she had already given birth to 2 puppies! I witnessed the next 4 and went into the house for an hour and came back and there were at total of 8! I assumed she was done, so when I went to pick up the kids and brought them in to show the pupps I was surprised to see 10. I checked on Skeet before I went to bed and I decided to count and found that she had 11!
I have a family that will be taking Thor, I am unsure if they are going to take Skeet and the pupps, so if anyone is interested please let me know.

For all of you who haven't seen him in a while, here is Jack walking.

Thor, Skeet AND the puppies all went to a loving home in Wisconsin.
I am so thankful that they are being taken care of and I can say that my mind and heart are at ease about the situation. I did have a really hard time after dropping them off and was thankful that I did it alone so no one could see my complete meltdown.
The family called me a few days later (which really made me feel better!)and updated me and everyone is doing great!

Since putting an ad on Craigs List, I've gotten a really good response on Thor.
Here are more pictures for those of you who are interested, and yes, I will be VERY picky about who she goes to since she is one of my babies!

Skeet is still available also, Thor is buddies with her but they do not have to go together

Sweet Thor when she was just a pup.
