I am trying to catch up on being blog absent the past few weeks. Matt was gone for 3 weeks straight to New Jersey for job training, so between work and taking care of 2 babies...blogging just wasn't in the priority category. We have done so much over the past month so I'll try to be brief:).
You know by now that I went up to visit Matt a few weeks ago and we went to the city. We ended up seeing Mary Poppins and it was really good. This was our third Disney on Broadway show to see(Lion King and Beauty and the Beast are the others) and they(Disney) never seem to disappoint. Hands down my favorite show is Lion King. I already plan to take the kids when they are older. It is FANTASTIC!
We did do a little Christmas shopping on the side. Landry Grace is going to get her first Itty Bitty Baby from American Girl. I tried talking her into a doll but she wanted the baby. I don't know why I am trying to rush this stuff anyway....many years ahead for the "big girl" dolls. We also made it to the Lego store. Jake has been into Lego's lately and we found a neat Toy Story set there for him. After shopping and seeing the show, we met back up with some other people from Matt's group to watch football. Wish I could be a true Southern gal and say I love to watch college football....sorry, I don't! But we had a great trip. Thanks for those of you who made suggestions on what to do. Deni, we tried to make to to Serendipity but just didn't have time.
Back in Ruston we had birthday parties and time with friends and family. I cleaned up the yard and pulled out the fall decor. The weather turned cold for a little while and that was nice.
Matt and I are training for the half marathon in Vegas on December 4th. My sweet daddy came over 5 days a week between 5 and 5:30 to watch the babies while I got my training runs in. That is LOVE. Matt is up to 5 miles on his long run and for someone who isn't a runner, I am so proud of him!! Meanwhile my mom ran her ninth marathon last weekend in St. George, Utah. She didn't have a PR(personal record) but finished and already planning another.
Enjoy the pictures.

Big Mommy caught another lizard for Jake. This one made it to show and tell!

The we went to hang out with Sharon and her crew. Emma is a little momma and LG loves her.
Jake caught a fish but would not consider touching it. Had a little help here but what a cute picture.
Finally I cleaned up the yard and planted some flowers. We live in a very old house(built in 1965) but it has so much charm. Pleased with the outcome.
We were invited to go a style show last week with some friends and had a great time.
My running partners were there and we had to take a picture.
Yesterday we headed to the Tech football game and helped them pull in a win over Utah State. We are off from school tomorrow and looking forward to it!
