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.

We have been needing to recaulk our windows because some of them have been leaking due to the heavy rain we've been getting. We have a two story family room in our house that has a ton of windows in it. These are the ones that needed to be recaulked. See the picture below.
Jeremy had to get on a ladder 20-30 feet off the very unlevel ground in order to fix the windows. It's bad when your husband has to find a rock to stick under one of the legs of the ladder in order to try to get the ladder level. Did I mention that he really hates getting on this ladder?

We were really looking forward to seeing the waterfall that was on the Ozark Highland Trail....unfortunately the waterfall was pretty much nonexistent. See the picture below and you'll know what I mean.
The highlight of the hiking trip was when Katie found this green snake on the trail. Jeremy had to move it out of our way before we could continue our hike. Katie was a little sad that she wasn't able to play with it. The child has a little bit of a fascination with snakes.
After we got home from camping while we were unpacking she came across another slithery creature in our front yard.

Jeremy pulled her tooth without letting her know that was what he was doing. He acted like he was just playing with some dental floss and seeing how loose her tooth was. As Katie said her prayers last night she did pray that her daddy wouldn't try to trick her anymore because that just wasn't very nice. I think she forgave him though because now she can proudly display the gap in her mouth. I'm sure everyone she comes in contact with over the next few weeks will be told the story of how she lost her first tooth.

Saturday morning I got up and went running and then we headed to Katie's last soccer game of the season. After her game Jeremy took me to Mellow Mushroom--my absolute favorite pizza place where we ate lunch. That evening since the rain had stopped we headed to the park for a picnic to let Katie practice riding her bike.
Things got even better on Sunday. Katie gave me this wonderful picture that she had drawn of me at school. I absolutely love the blue mascara and the blue lipstick. I'm not sure why I have brown hair or why I look like I'm wearing clown makeup. I also happen to love the fact that my shoulders are the size of a freaking football player. After church on Sunday, we headed down to Alma to pick up a new puppy. Jeremy knows Katie and I have been wanting another dog for awhile now so he caved in and got us this beautiful Australian Shepherd puppy. Katie is absolutly in love with her, and so am I.
I love you sweetie, and thanks for making me feel so special this weekend. Oh, and thanks for the new Blackberry as well. Here are some pictures of Katie and Lacy.
