Halloween has come and gone. Katie decided she wanted to be a cheerleader for Halloween. We found a High School Musical cheerleader costume for her which was even better than being just an average cheerleader. Katie thought it would be a good idea if our dog Lacy dressed up for Halloween as well. We found Lacy a Razorback cheerleader outfit which matched perfectly with Katie's costume. Jeremy was not happy.
The day before Halloween we took Katie, Rachel, and Lacy trick or treating on the square in Fayetteville. All of them were dressed up as cheerleaders. They were so cute. Lacy was a really big hit because that was homecoming weekend and there were plenty of hog fans out trick or treating. So many people commented on the cute dog in the razorback cheerleader costume. Jeremy was still not happy, and slightly humiliated to be walking a dog with clothes on.
Here are some pictures of Katie and Lacy.

We left Tuesday night about 6:30 p.m. and drove all night to Destin, Florida where we spent two days on the beach. The drive was not bad at all. I started out driving and drove until about 3:30 in the morning which is the time I get up on a normal workday while Jeremy slept. We had made it all the way to Birmingham, Alabama by that time. Just a note of caution.....never, ever, ever stop in Birmingam in the middle of the night for gas or to go to the bathroom. We had to stop for gas though and we stopped in the middle of the ghetto. I was praying the whole time that we woulnd't be shot and decided then that we weren't stopping in Birmingham on our way home no matter what time of day it was. I didn't end up going to the bathroom in the middle of the hood. I made Jeremy pull over on the interstate after we were out of Birmingham. He ended up driving the rest of the way to Destin. We made it there by 8:30 in the morning and we were able to check into our hotel that morning.
The water was so nice, and the weather was perfect.

Well, today he did. He ran the entire 13 miles without stopping, and I was very proud of him. I was especially proud of the fact that he didn't have to stop and find a tree to hide behind so he could go to the bathroom. I knew he could do it, and I really enjoyed having someone to run with me. I'm a little disappointed though that during his short training period that he didn't fall in love with running. I doubt he will ever run a marathon with me, and he probably won't run another race period. So I will continue to have to train for my next marathon by myself. But at least I got to run one race in my lifetime with my sweet husband. Thanks for making my day sweetie.

As many may have guessed, the Annual Thompson/Langham Fireworks Extravaganza was not included in the Obama Spendulus Plan. Due to lack of funding we had to reduce the sparkler bomb size to a mere 330 sparklers, tightly wound together with duct tape. It still turned out pretty good. Enjoy the show.
