Catch- up with the Crazies

Well, it seems like Tucker's accident pretty much sped up life (with me) and slowed it down ( for Tucker) all at once.

Let's catch up, shall we?

Dazed and Confused!

Tucker at the Dr. Allemans to help him with his whiplash.

Tucker basically laid in bed for three weeks. So not fun! But, definitely very needed. 
He did get very bored and somehow talked me into letting him do this:
Meet Ponyboy!
Oh, entertainment galore!

It was fun for about two hours and then he begged me to go and get some black hair dye. All better!

The week before Thanksgiving Trevor and I signed up to do three races, but only ended up doing two. The first one was an Indoor Sprint Triathlon at ELEVATE:
Elevate Fitness

Getting ready to start!
Me in the swim.

Me on the ride.

 Trevor placed 5th for Men (1:11:27) and I placed 2nd for women (1:09:33)
Trev on the bike
Riding 13 miles
Running the 5K

The next race was suppose to be the Human Race 5K
We woke up, put on our clothes turned on the news and saw that it was 5 degrees outside with a windchill of -15 degrees brrrrr!!! 
So just picture us crawling right back into bed until it was time to head up to Lissy and Mark's for the Pre-Thanksgiving Feast Breakfast, ad perusing, cooking, napping, snacking on Chex Mix, eating the Actual Feast (notice the healthy dishes that were served), and then we hurried off to Harry Potter while we tried to digest enough to make some room for PIE and some games that Trev was getting a little competitive with, weird huh? He never does that !
Sadey makes a nice pillow.
Lissy always makes every holiday the best!
The beautiful feasting table.
Green beans with sea salt and fresh parmesan.
Sweet potatoes with sea salt, and real maple syrup.
Fresh cranberry sauce.
Pillsbury rolls, I had great intentions, but not enough time. :)
At Harry Potter. Trev and I look like bro and sis. a little scary!
Tucker and Sadey entranced.
Ticket to Ride Game.
Me winning. Trev, so happy for me!

The next day was our third race (really second completed)
Provo City's 5K Santa Run:
Santa Trevor
Santa Sadey
At the starting line.
At the finish line.
Good times. Merry Christmas! Hohoho!

Super fun, not our best time as far as speed goes, we stopped for milk and cookies that were being passed out along the race course by Santa's Elves, and pretty much just enjoyed being together, the surroundings and the spectators.

On Saturday, we turned on Mindy Smith's "My Holiday" Christmas CD and we put up our Christmas tree, stockings and decor. We decided to go a little more simple this year. We only put up one tree and just a few of our favorite decorations. It feels nice and warm but still open and airy.

Then the boys had Curt and his kids over to watch the BYU Men's basketball game. Sadey and I headed over to ELEVATE so that I could run on the treadmill for 2 hours, I had a goal of burning 1000 calories, and Sadey curled up on the massage chair and read her new book almost cover to cover.

Then a week of feasting and pushing my body ended up becoming this for about a week.

But, never fear, the dead have risen....
Tucker went back to school and I am back at it with work, training for the Boise Half Iron Man in June, Young Women's and planning and attending all of the fun Christmas parties!!!
Kerry's dream table and chairs, we figured that if we took her picture near them, they will someday be hers. There was actually a lamp and a clock that I really would like, but no picture with me and these items, so I guess it's not meant to be.

And as an extra bonus, My sister Kerry came in town for a total of less than 24 hours. We lunched and shopped and then sent her on her way again. Love her and miss her like crazy.
 Thank goodness I'll see her in a few more weeks!!!

Now you know.
Peace Out.


  1. Whoa, busy for sure. Fun update, glad Tuckers doing better, way to go on the races, and lovely decorations (as usual).

  2. Yay!! Finally, the bulletin! I knew it would come when you felt back to normal. (Normal? whatever that is..) So- Sooo happy Tucker is moving along in recovery, well done racers, so cute all 3 Santas, your Christmas house is so pretty and inviting (very Mindy Smith), and greetings to Kerry (CA-UT-CA). See you soon.
