the santa run

On Saturday, we participated in the Santa Run again this year put on by Opportunity Village. Well, it was the second time for Jordan, but my first (I was at home, very sick and pregnant last year). It was so much fun. My friend Nicole and I did the 1 mile walk, while Jordan, Warren & Heather, Dennis, and Evan did the 5K. It was really incredible to see that many people dressed up in Santa costumes. Trey had a blast too. He is just catching on to this Santa/Christmas thing, so it was really funny to hear him keep say, "I see Santa Cwaz!" They tried to break the record for the most people dressed up as Santa at one time. There were thousands, though we don't know the official results. I think we're going to make this a tradition every year because it was so fun. Jordan says it was a personal best time for running a 5K. Way to go, Jordan!

5 months

Talya was 5 months old, yesterday, on the 7th. She is getting so big! She giggles now and is really trying to move a lot more. I still haven't fed her cereal, which I should of by now, but we'll try within the next couple of days. Her personality is coming out more and she is just so dang cute! We love our Tally!

ward christmas party

Our ward party was on the 5th this month. It seemed a little early, but it got us all in the Christmas spirit. The food was good, the program was good, and it was nice to be able to go this year (again, stuck at home, sick, during last year's party.) Trey had a lot of fun seeing Santa, which I didn't get any pictures of.

Jordan's nephew, Taylor, came home from his mission in Japan the week before Thanksgiving. We wanted to attend his homecoming in Sacrament Meeting, so we invited ourselves to his family's house for Thanksgiving. They were glad to let us come, but they live in Amarillo, Texas, so we had to fly. We were slightly nervous about flying with the kids, it being their first time on a plane, but they were amazing! (Trey was in heaven seeing all the "air panes") Trey slept through two of the flights, and Talya only fussed (not cried) at the end of one as we were descending (only because she was a little tired). It was great! We really had such a fun time. Taylor gave a wonderful report of his mission and we really enjoyed hearing all of his stories. We were able to celebrate Katy's birthday with her too. We loved being with Jordan's sister's family, who we don't get to see very often. Thank you Jeff, Katy, Taylor, and Cameron for having us!!
