My 1st half marathon!

So probably 6 months ago me, Jessica, & Cameron decided we would do a half marathon. We started running hardcore. Well, Jessica got pregnant with baby number 4 & Cameron was out of town for 3 weeks in the summer so that messed up the training. I stuck with it & was ready to run my race. Cameron ran the 5k & Jessica came to cheer us on. We stayed the night in Little Rock & got to pray for our waitress at Chuy's. It was awesome seeing the Lord bringing the situation together to get to pray for someone. The race was fun too. The view was beautiful & went right along the AR river. I felt great through most of the race except for the end. It went up hill, my legs we hurting, & I seriously  thought I was going to throw up. I made it through & it felt great! The Lord was with me & showed me I can do hard things. My time was 1.58.30. I didn't think I could make it in 2 hours so I was so excited when I did! I'm so thankful for my husband who has been cheering me on & I know went to church that day and was bragging on me. My sweet kids have been so encouraging  too & of course my friends! PRAISE GOD!

Fall festival 2016

We had Beau's company picnic so we weren't  at the fall festival long. The kids jumped around a little then we watched the black smith's a little. So cool! Love fall & my family!

Piper's 9th birthday campout

Piper had a camping theme birthday party & we decided to let her have some friends over to camp in the living room. Beau and I thought we might be crazy having a bunch of girls here overnight but it went so well! There was no fighting and they all had fun! We had family  over 1st for a few games, hotdogs (over the fire), & cookie cake. The girls also did make overs and ate popcorn & watched a movie. Paxton wasn't hating the attention. Although the girls were swinging him at one point, dropped him, & he landed on his head. He was okay though. Piper loved her party & I am so thankful she has a great group of friends!

Trying coffee for the 1st time. She didn't hate it but thought it wasn't bad.
The little ones hanging out in Bentleys bed.
It's time for pumpkin bread!
Beau & I eating Paxton birthday candy while he is sleeping.
So Beau accidentally  whacked me in the eye so I get to wear a black eye for a few weeks.
I now believe I can run a half marathon! Got 14 miles in! My friends surprise me again! #irunforpepsi

When you're  sitting  outside  with  mom & you  just  have  to  pee.
We had a girls night at the ROC. We all brought for & just hung out.
Piper & I were  watching tv & Paxton wanted to sit with us. He also wanted to hold these two balloons which made it hard for Piper & me to see.
Just some reading  time with  dad.
Piper made him a Mogul symbol. He's either Batman or a bad g
The tent was still up so the kids slept in it.
Good morning!

She fell asleep on me on the couch after church. I love her!
