We are still around....just busy :)

In this post Haley is 1 year, 3 months, and 13 days old:

Well, I would say that I haven't had time to update the blog, but that wouldn't be the whole truth. My Daddy taught me that you have time for anything, you just have to chose to use the time you have for the things you might not always want to do. So "not having time" is just a bad I apologize!

Things have been busy around the Peterson house. We have had visitors, Memaw came to visit a couple of weekends ago, and we have celebrated birthdays and holidays, and just been plain busy!

Haley is doing WONDERFUL! She is growing each and every day, and really turning into a very independant young lady. She loves to be chased around, and will run away giggling every time! She likes to point, loves to turn on and off lights, and laughs at herself on a regular basis. She LOVES to be outside, and we are so thankful that it is starting to get warm here in the south so we can be outside all the time.

Ethan and I are doing great too. We are both trying really hard to get into shape, and have committed to running in the Double Decker 10k on April 25th. He is running with the fire department and I am running with some girls here in the neighborhood. So far, it looks like Meredith, Robyn, Amy and I will be running together. We are hoping to get a few more of the mommies to join, but if not we will push ourselves through. Meredith and Robyn have been running for about a month now, and Amy and I just jumped on board. I feel it every time I run, I for sure am no longer a "track star" but it is so refreshing to finish strong and know I have done something good for my health.

Today, Meredith and I took Myla & Haley to Holli's Sweet Tooth (a great little candy shoppe here in town) in hopes of having their pictures made with the Easter bunny. We were both nearvous that the girls wouldn't do well. Much to my surprise, Haley LOVED the Easter bunny, and was more than happy to jump in his lap. Myla on the other hand, wanted NOTHING to do with him. Maybe next year!

Well, I think that is about all. I have included a bunch of pictures, and will put captions so y'all know what we were doing when. I will try very hard to do better, and keep y'all updated on our running progress. One day at a foot in front of the other! Take care!

Cute, cute, cute!!!
She is so darling.:0)
And I am so glad that you are doing the 10 K. That will be so fun!
I love looking at your blog-it's fun to keep up with you and your cute little family.

Really Cute photos! Its awesome that Haley enjoyed the Easter Bunny. I don't blame Myla for being Scared...he did look a little frightening. My legs are already sore and I didn't realize the Double Decker was a 10k! I've never done more than a 5k in my life, I'm scared!!!! But it will be lots of agonizing fun.

She is so freaking cute!!!! I just want to squeeze her! And good job on running... I get motivated and it only lasts a couple days. Sometimes I look back and wish I had some sort of practice every afternoon like we did in high school. At least you have a group of girls to keep you going!
