First, there was this. glad i was able to post about something in october!
then, that weekend was a fabulous birthday weekend for me! it began with this:
where i ran the 5k portion of the Peachtree City Classic. it was my 4th “race” —which also was my FASTEST! 3.1 miles in 30:40! woohooo. i think it helped that The Mr. could cheer me on & bring Jovie to her first spectator sport.
the next day was my actual birthday, and we spent it doing this:
Then more of October came and went. leaves fell, were raked and played in:
parties were attended (and FUN):
the school party was fantastic! their hayride came complete with hay, and even though my girl didn’t want to participate in any of the games, she surprised the heck out of me by doing this:
yes. this is the same girl, who just last week wouldn’t even go see the animals up close on the farm, who decided to wait patiently! to ride a pony! i really thought she’d end up changing her mind, and she did it all by herself.
i mean, look at that smile!
and when we came home from the party, we just had to wait a little while to meet her cousin sophia! we haven’t seen Stacey & Dave since jovie’s first trip to greenville for thanksgiving. my, how things have changed:
after a fun weekend in greenville, spending time with the family (even Uncle Nate flew down from boston!), we came home on halloween to do this:
so yeah….. october is done. and november will be just as fun……
PS- my cute little kittycat has a tail for her costume. seems i could never get a great shot of her from that view.
