Where does time go?

I'm busy busy busy, and it seems like when I'm not busy with something all I want to do is sleep.

Here's a few updates about what's going on:

1.) Eli & Emerson started preschool. Emerson loves it and told Marcus and I to leave. My poor sweet Eli cries every time we drop him off. It breaks my heart. He hugs my legs and says, "I crying mama". Each day when we pick him up and ask how school was he says two things, "I cried, and I played outside on the wee"

2.) Emerson has a Cinderella outfit which she has worn everyday since we bought it. She doesn't wear it to school or church, but if we're at home it has to be on. She goes around telling us all, "I'm just a princess" and Eli sweet boy tells her, "I like your dress sissy"

3.) I preformed another wedding. That was fun I love weddings. Some of the best times is that i get to hang out with the groom up front and we can chat. The groom at this wedding took this opportunity to ask me how ministers don't cry at funerals haha.

4.) Marcus is the head coach of the boys cross country team at the local high school. He's excited but a little overwhelmed the team is huge with about 70 boys.

5.) My mom is engaged. She and my dad divorced about 6 years ago. I haven't met her fiance but I hope that this makes her happy again.

6.) The end back to work.

9 Years of Marriage (yesterday)...

Marcus and I started dating our junior year of high school. We got to know each other on the cross country team.
Then we went to junior Prom together. 
And became best friends too...
And by our senior prom we were engaged (yes I know this is insane). Then we graduated from high school, got married, and move to CA to go to school.
And then we celebrated one year of marriage...
And then two, three & four. And then I graduated from college, and together we moved across the country to Connecticut so I could attend grad school.
And while there we celebrated 5 years, battled infertility, and then by our 6th wedding anniversary...
we had two tiny babies and became a family of 4.
 Then we celebrated 7 years and moved across the country again this time to NV.
By year 8 we had moved again. This time to Mayberry, CA

Then we moved again to the Bay area, CA 9 years later. 
Many moves, several more graduations, twins, lots of growing up... here's to many more years with my love.

The Color Run...

Several months ago Marcus and I (well mostly me if I'm being honest) had this great idea to try and get our old high school cross-country team together to do the color run.

I was so excited!! Then, nobody could it, except for two of our friends, then the day before the race one of those friends had a job interview and couldn't make it.

So it wasn't even close to being the entire old cross-country team but we still have a good time and we did the COLOR RUN!!

For those who don't know about this run, it involves wearing a perfectly white shirt, then running a 5k, at different points during the course you get colored "dye" thrown at you. By the end you're a colorful mess. 

Me and my friend Jamie. She is one of my best friends from high school (was the maid of honor at my wedding).  This the before shot.

Me & marcus "before"

Eli & Emmy came along for the run too. Dressed in their whites. We brought towels in case the color freaked them out. They were very tired and not yet in the mood for much.

Waiting to start with 15,000 of our closest friends haha.

Emmy decided that riding in the stroller was not for her. She wanted to run. She was wearing sandals but that didn't stop her. She probably ran 2k without stopping, and then spent the rest of the race walking and riding in the stroller. She loved the color.

Marcus after the race was over. Nice and colorful.

Marcus & Emmy (she was upset because she wasn't right at my side. My little side kick)

Me & Jamie after. Jamie really got hit hard by the blue. Part of me isn't very colorful because I often picked up Emmy as we ran through the color areas. It was so dusty you visibility was really low and I was afraid she would get trampled. 

I also decided to wear the bandana to protect my hair. I read on the site that sometimes it can take a few days for some of the color to come out of hair. Since I was officiating a funeral the next day I decided I might not want to have various colored streaks.

All done with the race. In need of a bath.

Jamies boyfriend came along for moral support. He managed to stay perfectly clean (he's not a runner haha).

It was a good time. I would do it again. Emmy would too...
 I think Eli will pass he was not a huge fan of getting color throw at him.
