Brace Yourself.

This is going to be a long post. So like I said before Halloween was crazy. We had tons of help (thanks to all my wonderful family...mom, dad, ryan, nena, travis, september, tom....anyone else I am forgetting) so it didn't take us too long. We got everything moved over pretty quick and got the old house totally cleaned and done that night. Then we had EVERYONE over at our new place to get the kids ready to go trick or treating. It was kind of crazy, but probably only seemed that way to me. Anyway we took the kids out and then fed all the adults dinner....I hit the sheets late, but earlier than everyone else cause I had to be up to run my race. So Saturday I got up and ran...it was the perfect day....overcast, a little rainy, and just cool enough to be running for a while. I felt really good the whole race. September and I stuck together pretty much until the end when I got a second wind and went ahead just a bit. I finished in like 2 hours and 25 mins....I think. Pretty good considering I only trained for less than 5 weeks. It's funny too cause I felt so much better this time around the days following my race compared to the first time....and the first time I had spent forever training, but I was so sore for a few days after the race. Its kinda weird. Anyway then we got up Sunday and went to Nathan and Hailey's ward for Sienna's blessing....and then it was back to the chaos. We finally got a fridge in our house Monday night so we could stop eating out for every single meal of the day....thank heavens. I guess that is about all for the update....here comes the picture overload. These are kinda backwards....bare with me. The house....

The view from the front door....the stairs and then the main family room straight ahead and to the right is a formal living room....this will be our "empty room" in memory of our house growing up in Moses....you know what I am talking about.
The top of the stairs to the left is two bedrooms, a bathroom, and then the large bonus room...eventually will be a TV theater room.
To the right at the top of the stairs is a guest bedroom with it's own bathroom...pretty sweet set up.
From the front door to the left is the formal dining room....and into the kitchen.
The kitchen from the dining room side.....
The kitchen from the other side looking towards the dining room.


The family room looking from the kitchen...also behind where this picture was taken is a hallway with a bathroom, and then it leads to the garage, another room, and the laundry room. Looking up from the family room....the balcony...pretty cool.

The master bathroom....to the left is a walking shower....


Onto the race....Jared took this picture of me crossing the finish line....so ugly but whatever.
All the kids that came trick or treating...actually this isn't all of them. We had a big group.
Tayden was a spider and Boston was spiderman....Nena make Tayden's costume. So cute...but he kept pulling the little hat off....it was pretty funny.




I know this picture is blurry, but this is the face Tayden made every time he finally got his little hat off...it was hilarious.
