Abby was apparently having way too much fun in her dream...or chasing something...I'm not sure. Watch the video. It made Beau and I laugh. video

More Weekend Fun

Lucky for us our fall break was on Monday so we go to spend an extra day in Moab. It was so wonderful. I forget how much I miss Noah, Simon, Maggie, and Emily when I don't get to see them all the time. Sunday night after the race we grabbed the kids, sleds, snowboard, and my dog to go to the sandhill. It was so warm outside so it was perfect. The kids had a blast, Beau and I did too. My dad rigged this pulley system to get the sleds up the hill so the kids wouldn't have to drag the sleds up themselves and so I wouldn't have to do it for them. It was HYSTERICAL! The kids are so much fun. Simon would climb so high on that hill and then FLY down on the sled. I should have filmed it. Beau was going down on the snowboard and he was flying too. He didn't crash until the very last run of the night. Emily kept saying "I can't do it mana (that's manda in 2-year old language) I can't do it" She would sit at the bottom of the hill until I would convince her she could do it and climb up. Beau was a sucked and went to carry her up a couple of times :).









The next day we woke up and watched a Halloween movie and colored tons of halloween coloring pages. It was so nice to be with them for the weekend.

1/2 marathon weekend

Sorry it has taken me forever to post this stuff. I have been somewhat busy. So last weekend we went with Jens and Tiffany to Moab so Beau could run the half marathon with them. I was going to but...didn't. Anyway. We stayed in town at this cute little rental house that my momma hooked us up with. It was a lot of fun getting to spend time with them. I hope they didn't feel like I was ditching them when I would go off with my crazy family!! Sorry guys! Anyway Beau trained a bit but really our summer and fall were too crazy to train. He was planning on going pretty easy and running the 1/2 in 2:30 but..he ended up running it in 1:58!! I was so proud of him. He didn't even push that hard. They had to shuttle you out to the race finish line from a certain spot because the river road was closed so, I didn't get to see him finish but, I did get to see Jens and Tiffany cross holding hands. It was the cutest thing. Go to their blog and she will hopefully post the picture I took as they were running. All my nieces and nephews wanted to go to the finish line to support Uncle Beau. Maggie and Simon even drew him pictures. It was so funny on the way up the river road Maggie kept saying "I can't see him, I can't see Beau." Until we got on the bus to shuttle up and we saw some runners so Emily, my two year old niece yells "I see Beau I see him" It was so adorable. They love bo bo.

Murder Mystery Dinner Party

Beau and I had a blast tonight. We decided last week to plan a Murder Mystery party for this weekend. I had the game and Janece and I made the invitations. It was so much fun. We had written on the back of the invitations everyone's characters and the costume suggestions that they had. Everyone definitely rose to the occasion!


Dierdre C. Deucer:
"Dee," as her friends call her, grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, and in Roley City that meant a tough life for a beautiful girl. Determined to make a success of her life despite a drunken father and a brother convicted of armed robbery at the age of 15, Dee was Homecoming queen. She attended State College and is now in her first year of law school. (it says that I have poofey hair but I couldn't get it to poof)



Calvin Q. Layder-
The son of prominent Roley City insurance salesman, C.U. Layder,"Cal" is a certified genius. While at many schools a science wizard would have no chance of joining the "in" crowd, Cal was a social success during high school largely because he was a terrific practical joker. His jokes, often directed at school administration and occasionally at city officials, earned him such a high standing among the students at Roley High that he was a welcome member of any group. He was particularly close to Rock N. Roley.

The first thing Beau did after getting dressed was came in the bathroom and said "Lorraine your my density..I mean my destiny" and then when he opened the door to greet our guests he said "Hi, I'm George, George McFly." It was hysterical. Try not to pee your pants laughing when you see this outfit!

Running or robbing a bank...you decide

Beau and I decided to go work out this afternoon. I was going to the Gym because it was FREEZING outside (about 30 degrees no joke) and the wind was too cold for me but Beau was going to do a long run around town. This is what he came out of the bedroom wearing. No words could explain my feelings at that moment...how silly is he?

October 5, 2007




We'll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don't need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don't quite know
How to say
How I feel


Those three words
I said too much
They're not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life



Let's waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?



Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they're all I can see






I don't know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Happy Anniversary Beau James I love you!! One year down, eternity to go.
