Turning 30 never looked so dirty

If my title caught your eye, you might wonder what I am up to. I haven't blogged in a VERY long time and now I'm getting really close to ending a pretty good run at being in my 20's. I have decided that for my birthday this year I am going to take part in the Mudathlon. What is that??? is over 40 mud and off-road obstacles packed into a mud adventure that will leave you wiped out and wanting more! When you cross the finish line you get a medal and a beer and continue on to the post-race feast. I know that it sounds a little red-neck, but maybe that is why it sounds so fun to me. Most years my birthday is just another day that I am very greatful to have, but nothing too special. This year I am determined to make it a day I won't soon forget and an awesome "turning 30" story to tell. Right now I am still in the recruiting phase for my team for the big event. I think that an event like this should be shared with friends and a few cold ones too. So, I think our team slogan is going to be "Getting dirty because Katie is turning Thirty!" I think it still needs some work. I will keep more up to date with my posts and try really hard, when I have time!

New Ride

A favorite Christmas present. Too bad we didn't have room to bring it home with us. I bet that it finds it's way here soon though.

Goodbye Baby Mullet

I didn't get a true "before" picture. Brendon had made too many comments about his mullet/ducktail hair in the back so I took action one night right before bed.

Most of the time he had no clue I was even working on his hair. He was just busy playing with toothbrushes and other bathroom stuff.

My little man no longer looks like a baby!

Jessie and the cute little pumpkin

Wilson LOVED the sunglasses so we just let him wear them the whole night.

Daddy and his little pumpkin

Madelyn "helping" Wilson get to the next house.

This year we went to a pre-Trick or Treating party and then hit the streets of our neighborhood. We didn't go to too many houses but we still ended up with a fair amount of candy. While the kids and I collected candy Brendon stayed home and handed out candy to 80+ kids in less than an hour and a half! We had large groups of kids and lots of different costumes. All and all a great year for Halloween!

Pumpkins and More

Wilson fell asleep right before we got there!

Madelyn just hanging out trying to pick the best pumpkin.

W chillin' in the baby race car.

He wasn't really a fan of the stickers and neither was Daddy!

Madelyn was very excited to see the helicopter even if she doesn't look happy in the picture!
We all went to the Family Fest day at a local children's hospital and we had a blast! The kids did the bouncy house, picked pumpkins, rode a miniature horse, rode bikes, got in a helicopter, an ambulance, had pictures with Mickey and Minnie and had their eyes checked! It was a full day of fun and everyone was ready for a nap by the afternoon.
