Seriously behind...I'm horrible at this!

After our 1/2 marathon in November we took a break and I decided it was time to include the whole family in my joy of running.  Stephen and I ran the Turkey Trot together and then went back for the girls about mile 2.  It was so fun to see my whole family participating and actually enjoying themselves!

 I took the girls to see The Nutcracker at TJC.  It was a neat experience, but one that might could have waited a few years.  Keatyn's response to it was that there was no talking...only dancing!  
 Of course December brought many things and one of them was The Lindale Christmas parade.  Addilyn and I rode on the float and waved to our family and friends as we rode by them.  
Stephen's birthday weekend was filled with none other than...A race!  He wasn't 100% thrilled about it but by the end I think he really did have a good time.  We participated in the White Rock Marathon and ran the relay with a team of 5.  It was cold, wet and rainy during most of our race.  We can put that one in the books:)! 
 We took Stephen to Shogun's for his birthday.  It was yummy (as always).  
 Keatyn's school party was a success! 
 We left that Sunday and took the girls to Dallas for a couple of days to celebrate Stephen's birthday some more and our Anniversary.  What a sweet time we had.  We stayed across from the Galleria and enjoyed taking a drive over to the Gaylord for ICE and also enjoyed some good eats:)!

 This was the Christmas Eve service at church.  We always enjoy this service because we get to have our whole family in the service with us.  This year Keatyn really began to understand the meaning and it was very precious to see her holding her candle and singing.  
 And Christmas morning didn't disappoint.  The girls begged for a puppy and Santa gave in.  He's a sweet little guy and has really brought joy and responsibility to the Bills' home.  
 What better way to bring in the New Year than with friends and a little REK.  We had so much fun listening to him at Bass Hall.  We were very impressed!!!!
Well, I know that was fast and furious but that at least catches me up on the high points and brings me into 2012.  We have big things coming...we are counting down 8 days until we take our trip to DISNEY!  We are beyond excited!!!!!
