it has been a very busy thanksgiving break for us. wednesday we went up to blackwell. it was the first time that we have been up since my mema and grandpa have been in the nursing home. thankfully they both got to spend thanksgiving day at my aunt and uncle's house with all of the family. thursday evening we drove to shawnee to see all of blake's family. macie got out of our sight for just a second and we found her under the dining room table with a huge chunk of turkey in her mouth...she was loving it! then friday morning we left for texas to see my mom's side of the family. my aunt debbie made delicious turkey enchiladas and a spread of mexican food. saturday morning we left texas and headed towards shawnee again to spend more time with blake's mom, nanny and pawpaw. i have vowed not to get in a car at all today! we are relaxing at the house and decorating for christmas... two of my favorite activities!

last weekend we went to tulsa so that blake could run in his first marathon. macie, blake's mom, and i drove the race course and every 5 miles parked and cheered as he ran by. he planned on running it in 4 hours and 45 minutes, but it ended up taking him 5 hours and 25 minutes. it was much harder than he expected...despite the last 4 months of training! i am proud of him...but glad that it is over!

macie was a cupcake for halloween (i made her costume...you have to use your imagination a little!). we had a party at our house and her cousins came dressed as monkeys. the boys went trick or treating, but macie had fun handing out candy with me and seeing all the dressed up kids.

for our five year anniversary, blake and i went to vegas. we shopped, ate really good food, and walked our legs off! on our anniversary we ate dinner at the eiffel tower restaurant...we had an amazing view of the belagio fountains. it was a fun trip, but i was ready to get back home to macie. i think my mom and sister were ready of us to get home too...macie wore them out!
