I am running for every mom, as a mom, who has had to see their baby endure chemo. I am running for every mom, as a mom, who has had to wear a paper hospital gown just to touch their baby. I am running for every mom, as a mom, who did not get to bring their baby home. I run in memory of my youngest son and cherish everyday with my oldest one. Join me in my adventures through motherhood, family life, and the challenges of being a 30-something athlete.

Friday Fun at the YMCA
Tonight our YMCA had a Christmas party for the kiddos. They made Christmas crafts, sang songs, and listened to Twas The Night Before Christmas. Then Santa arrived! Wes was super excited, he had a long conversation with Santa and got a candy cane from Mrs. Claus. Wes really shows no fear of strangers, slightly scary but we'll work on it.
My nephew Brewer on the other hand.....was excited to go up to Santa but ultimately didn't want to be touched or spoken to by some creepy people in weird costumes.
After the boys chatted with Santa they had cookies and milk. They had big, soft sugar cookies with peppermint icing! It was super yummy!
Jason. my brother-in-law, agrees!
After we got home, Wes put on his PJs and snuggled with me for a quick movie before bed. All in all a great Friday night!
