Feeling Festive

 We started out the weekend with a 5K, nice and early Saturday morning. I ran with Tina, Ashley, and Don (aka our trainer).
 The Susan G. Koman race for a cure was at Lenior-Rhyne University and we made cute shirts that said WE RUN FOR THE WOMEN THAT WON and had a list of 7 survivors!!!!! I thought the feathered hair clips would make us stand out, but there were grown men in BIG pink tutus and pink afro wings everywhere- we did not stand out AT ALL! But we still had fun! Tina and I shaved another 2 minutes off our time and finished out 3.1 miles in 32 minutes!! Our next race is November 19th at the Hickory YMCA.
 Chatham was feeling festive too and pulled out his vampire teeth. Chatham isn't into masks, but thinks that wearing his hoodie makes him scary. HA!
Saturday after the race we have the Wades, Martins, and Mingus' over to paint pumpkins (I will post those pictures tonight since I used the actual camera for that event) then we went with the Mingus' to Dr. Highland's haunted barn before heading Downton for the Spooktacular.
 It was set up a bit differently this year and instead of just walking around the square and getting candy at the stores, this year there were games and big blow up decorations. So we snapped a few pictures and headed over to the firetrucks before settling on a few of the "shorter" lines to play a game or two. We hit the jack pot though- the man handing out candy was a Tarheel fan, so after one game the kids bags were already half full!!!!
Shrek wasn't so scary once Chatham saw some other kids knock him over. So he held his hand to "help him back up". Harper was there but fell asleep in the stroller and didn't get any pictures taken. The Stiver's, at Two Pink Magnolia's, did stick some candy in her bag anyway since she was dressed up.

  1. So many people doing these races is inspiring and making me want to do it too. I already told my husband we'd be doing one next year when I finish school and have time to train. I have so much work to do to get back in shape! :-(

    Those costumes were so cute. Can't wait to see Harper's!
