Rock the Triathlon...

My stud of a husband finished his first triathlon yesterday! It was a sprint distance with a 300 meter swim, 12 mile bike ride, and 5K run. I am so, so proud of him! I had a blast watching him and he did fantastic- especially for a first attempt. Isn't it funny how you forget about certain parts of a person you know well- like a spouse for instance! I mean, I'm quite familiar with the brillant lawyer, master hunter, bookworthy husband and father- but I had truly forgotten that I am married to an elite athlete! I had never experienced watching him in competition before and woo-hoo I could really get used to it... There is just something about cheering for someone you love! I am so excited about the next one and if I wasn't certain that I would die a slow drowning death I might just think of joining him at some point. Land, people, I stick to the land... Way to go Brett- we are crazy proud of you!

Eden's Nine Weeks Old

*She poops without assistance- yeah!
*She LOVES to take a bath and HATES to get out
*She smiles and "talks" all the time
*Still wakes up about every two hours- Boo

It is such a pleasure to be her Mamma!

Happy Birthday to My Favorite...

Yesterday my favorite person in all the world had a birthday...

You have given me a life better than I ever imagined- really. I thank God every day that He gave me a person that is SO much more than I deserve and more than I ever wanted...
Thank you -for loving me so selflessly- for working so hard to provide well for our family- for trying to get better at everything you do- for being so patient with me this year- for stopping by the house during the day, just to say hello- for always telling me you think I'm beautiful- for learning to listen to me- for making everything so much fun- for making me laugh hard everyday- and for teaching me the value of silliness. I love you more than I can say.
Happy Birthday!

For Brett's sake I must tell of the Great Deer. Last weekend Brett went with his good friend Dewayne to hunt his family's land in Golthwaite. It was Brett's first time to hunt with a bow and he got this 9 point from less than 20 yards away. You should ask him to tell the story! We are so very proud!
