Wobble gobble 5k!

We all did the Wobble Gobble race this am- I did the 5k and the boys (plus me as the photographer) did the widdle Waddle 1k! It was a lot of fun and there were people dressed in costume! We will definitely dress in costume next year!

Getting our tree!

It's almost 75 degrees outside and can't believe we are getting our tree! Where did this year go?

Just another Sunday!

Just went for a run while the boys rode their bikes on the beach. Such a beautiful afternoon compared to our gloomy, rainy Saturday. Happy Sunday everyone!

Thanks to everyone for a fantastic birthday!

What a fantastic week-long birthday celebration! Start at a crazy night in Manna Korean BBQ in Los Angeles where we celebrated all Nov Birthdays! It was great getting everyone together and seeing my friend Giulia, who was here in Cali for work. It just so happened that the one time I could see her was the night of Manna!
Next was a fun dinner at the house with some friends right before Rose took off for Pcola! Thanks Rose for making the delicious spinach sald (which included goat cheese, beets and walnuts- yum!), getting the beautiful cake and cake-pops (which Chops loved!) and to Jeff for getting together some peeps and making the food as well!
And then for my special birthday celebration last night that Jeff put together for me... Above is a pic of us at Mimi's to get pedicures (the best ever!) and for the delicious steak dinner at Flemmings. Seriously- this was the best birthday ever and now I just have to top this for next year!
Thanks to the whole family for all the phone calls and text messages and blog posts- I feel so loved and so thankful to have all of you in my life. I have the best family and friends in the world! I feel very blessed. Thank you god for giving me another year of life and hopefully many, many more-- like mom said in her singing message she left for me on the phone! Love you guys!

Us working at the New York Road Runners office.. It's going to be a long night!

TextingForward in NYC

We got here last night and so far so good!!! We are heading to the expo tonight but we will blog more pics later. We got in super late and didn't get to bed until 2am and then up at 630... You know I need sleep-- but guess that won't happen until after the marathon- again!!!

Good-Bye Sharon! We miss and love you!

Jeff's lovely mom Sharon, was visiting with us for the last 3 months and we can't believe how fast time flew by. It was so nice having the chance to know her and spending as much time as we did- so we feel very blessed and lucky to have had the time we did. On her last night with us, Rose made us an amazing meal and we sat outside to break bread together one last time. It was such a nice night.
We were a bit exhausted because we were recovering from Ethan's birthday party and a night of trick-or-treating around the block! But we had a great time seeing all the family at the house and of course- dressing up and being silly since it was Halloween.
We got to do so much while she was here.. it's crazy that when she first got here we were going to Ethan and Chop's swimming lessons! That seemed like ages ago! We will miss you so much- we already do. Hope to skype you a lot from all the way over there in Australia and let's not wait until too much time passes to see each other again. We love you!

Happy Birthday Dan!

Dan-O! Happy, Happy BIG B-day!!! Just wanted to give you a shout out to wish you the very best day and AWESOME weekend... you deserve it! Did you get the goody bag with depends diapers, Fiber bars and Geritol? Too bad I can't make any more fat jokes really since you've started doing Bikram- but I can still make OLD jokes!

Seriously- you are an awesome brother-in-law and thanks for everything you do for our family. We love you so much and wish that we were closer to celebrate. Jeff and I had a great time being there with you guys this past visit- and hopefully we can see each other more- since you and Rach have a ton of FREE time and stuff!

Expect our present not too late- it should get there less than a month from today.. so that's early- Ayson time! But let me just put a disclaimer in there that you might receive it when you get here for Christmas! Don't worry-- its a REALLY good present... it's worth the wait! We love you!
