Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy.

Here is the kit we bought..

The kit came with premade icing in the bags.. very smart if I may add..
And all the candy you can eat uh put on the house.

The boys holding up the sides.. takes a bit for it to hold.

Dad got in the act too!

Here is the finished product!

Wow! What a weekend..

Seth waiting for his run.. He didn't run though.. His shin was still hurting him.. I think part of it was nerves too.. over 300 kids in his divison.. WOW!

Here is the biggest fan of the DCMS XC team. My mom took care of all the kiddos. She always made the goody bags for after the race. Water before the race.. Wet towels, gloves you name it she took care of it. THANKS MOM!!!

Mckay is taking a nap before his run.

This is a picture of Mckay running to the finish line. Is he in pain? yep!. He got spiked at the start line.. He had a huge gash in his knee. I thought it was going to need stiches... Lucky it didnt! Love this kids determation this year.. He finished the year strong!

After our trip to Lexington for the State meet. Michael and I attended a Halloween party. We dressed as pirates as you guessed it. We had a great time!!
Thanks again to mom for watching the boys overnight..

Seth got to run with the middle school this week. He was added in the elementary division. Mostly 6th graders ran this race. Just a few younger ones.

They needed on more guy to make a team. Their team finished 5th.

Seth finished his 2K in under 10 minutes not sure his actual placement though.

Mckay's team the 7th and 8th graders finished 3rd this week.

Mckay finished 28th.. out of a bunch hehe.

More CC pic of Mckay.

These are pictures that a Dad from the Cross Country team took of the Sept 20 meet.

This is the meet where the team placed 1st and Mckay finished 3rd overall and 2nd for his team.

I just love the first one and Mckay's favorite was the second one where you can see the spikes on his shoes although its hard to see in this scan.

I have pictures of this weeks meet I will get loaded later..

Not sure what pictures I have yet. Seth and Mckay both raced.

He finished 3rd overall and 2nd for his team..

His team came home with 1st place.

This is only picture I have at the moment.

Race for the Cure

Here is a picture of the Team Sabrina..

Sabrina has the pink scarf on her head.

We got rained on a little.. but not bad.

They let a bunch of pink doves fly before the race it was so cool.

In this picture you can see my boys to the left.

Here I am with the ponytail. My shirt was huge I had to bunch it up for the race.

It was so hard to run.. with 18,000 people...

Mckay finished quickly as usual with his running buddy.

And Holly and I finished in a good run/walk pace... since it was so crowed..

But we had fun and got lots of goodies.

Thanks for everyone who donated to Team Sabrina..

Mckay was born at 6:02 in the morning.. shouldn't he be a morning kid.. I don't think so..

This is a family party year.. yep every other year he gets a party with his friends.

I made Mckay his favorite dinner. Steak.. well actually Michael grilled that for him.

We got him a guitar and some accessories.

Cheesecake for dessert instead of a cake this year.. check him out blowing out the candles on the cheesecake.
