I did It!

On Thanksgiving I finally ran my first 5k. I have wanted to do this for awhile, but have always chickened out. It was a blast, and thanks to my friend Rebecca, I ran the entire way. It was slow, I finished in 34.16 minutes, but i did it and I am proud of myself. whoo hoo, go me!

I am feeling very domestic. I found a recipe for Pumpkin Ravioli with a Gorgonzola sauce, it sounded so good I thought I would make it for FHE. I took pictures of the process, well just half of the project I forgot to document the final steps. Here is the brief synopsis:

It was so yummy, if anyone wants the recipe I can post it. Or you can find it in the Cooking Light magazine.



Halloween is probablly one of my most favorite holidays. I love the fall weather and the decorations and the excitement of trick-or-treating and i LOVE the Gardner Village Witches. Halloween isn't Halloween if there isn't a trip to visit these witches.
I guess we missed 2005, due to A being only 2 months old.


We barely squoze (is that a word) in pumpkin carving, things got a little crazy/busy after returning from disneyland. The kids liked it for the most part, but "A" didn't want to scoop his own seeds out. He thought they were "gwoss"
"A" surveying the situation

"ooh gwoss"

"E" digging in although very disgusted

The finished product.

Our house this year consisted of a witch (Samantha from bewitched) and a very cute Giraffe (thanks for the costume Harvest).
