Big Day for me!

Well today was a big day for me! It was the first time I ran 4 miles since coming back off of maternity leave. I ran the entire way and didn't stop once. Granted, I wasn't running super fast but I finished in about 53 minutes which isn't too bad considering I was running it in 40 something before I got pregnant. I'll get better, but for now I am SOOOO sore. Hips, knees, ankles, you name it, it hurts to walk on.

The second reason today is a big day is because I found out I won NCO of the Year for my squadron. I didn't win at the Group level, but I was still happy. I've never won anything like this in my career and I was very proud and happy. It really makes you feel like you do a great job and people can see that when you win awards like this.

The kids are doing good, getting bigger each and every day. This morning when I came home from PT to shower and change to go to work Liz woke up. The first thing she said to me was Good morning mama. She is a very sweet girl.

New Year, New Blogger

Ok, since I finished school last semester I have a little bit of free time. I am hoping to turn over a new blogging leaf and try to get/keep this thing up to date. Everyone is doing well here. Elizabeth is learning her ABCs and fact, she has figured out my code to unlock my phone so sorry if she calls anyone. :) Christopher is 2 months old today. He's still rolling over from his tummy to his back and he is getting so big! He goes in for his 2mth check up on the 27th so I'll post his stats when I know them.

We went to Sears earlier to spend our 'free' Heros at Home gift card they emailed us and we get up to the cashier and she tried to type in the giftcard number and it kept coming back "card not activated". It was extremely frustrating to have stuff picked out and rang up only for them to tell us the card isn't going to work? I understand it was free to us but why send us something thats not going to work?

Side note...we finally got something things to put up on the walls so we won't have a bare-walled house. Yeeaaa! I got a really pretty flower picture and then a box of 10 in 1 picture frames. So now, I just need to print off some picture and put everything up. I'll post pictures of the progress as it happens.

The weather has been BEAUTIFUL! I hope it keeps up, its nice to be able to open the windows or go outside and play.
