Race for the Cure

On Saturday, I will be running in the Race for the Cure 5K with my sister Annette and sister in-law Lisa. A few of my friends have joined our team and are running with us. We are going to have a great time! Over 14,000 people have registered for the race! This is a great race to be Annette's first (and hopefully not only) 5K. Unfortunately, on Tuesday, she injured her shin and has been in a lot of pain. We may need to wrap her leg real well or worst case scenario, load her up in Dalton stroller but she's going to do the race!!!!

To commemorate our inaugural family 5K, we had shirts made that say...Check your 'maters 2010 and on the back S.A.L.S.A -N- for a cure. SALSA N is the letters of the names of everyone racing on our team. Shannon, Annette, Lisa, Someone who backed out (Stephanie), Alda/Ana and Nancy. What a great bunch of girls!

I will be collecting money until Nov 15 so if you are able to donate, please go to my page and support our efforts, as well as research for Breast Cancer!

Dalton turned 12!!!

I know you are going to find this shocking but my little guy isn't so little any more. He turned 12! Even before he turned 12, his voice started changing, he's getting taller and his face is looking pre-teen. Before I know it, he's going to be taller than me. He's turning into such a handsome young man!

Dalton with his friends in the back yard.

For his birthday, he had some classmates come over and watch a movie in the backyard on the big screen. They watched Diary of a Wimpy Kid. They ate pizza, decorated their own "popcorn" cupcakes, ate popcorn and lots of candy. I'm sure those parents LOVED me! The kids that came were just precious and Dalton loved every minute playing with them. His best buds Austen and Madison came and that made his day!

These are a few of my favorite pics of my guy this past year.

First week of school.

Last March, Dalton and Mrs. Dye were green eggs and ham.
