It seems like forever since I posted last. Probably because it has been forever. I have just been super busy lately that I have not had time to post. So today I decided to write instead of just lay in bed.
Let's start at the beginning. Last I wrote Lucas began walking. Well now he has mastered that art and has begun running when he gets excited enough. Although the ending result is him falling but other the that he is pretty good. Last week Lucas had his first big injury. I was downstairs folding laundry and he pulled a can of soup off a table. He, not being strong enough, dropped it promptly on his poor little piggy (his big toe). He cut it open and was bleeding profusely. It was quite sad but I must say that he has a nice battle wound on his toe.
Other news on Lucas is that he officially turned one on May 2. Yes, I now have a one year old. It is very fun to say that when people ask me how old he is. We went out to the Rainforest Cafe for his birthday dinner and then the following day we had a big birthday bash for him. When we bought the invitations for his party he picked the Cars (from the movie) ones and so that was the theme of his birthday. He was hilarious however when he was eating his cake. He got it all over, it was quite entertaining. Other then that he has just been a busy little boy with big things to do.

Here Lucas is the day he was born a little after 3 pm on May 2, 2007!

Here is Lucas at exactly 3 pm on May 2, 2008. One year old!

Here we are outside the Rainforest Cafe after eating dinner!

At Lucas's birthday party we naturally sang happy birthday to him although he really didn't like it and started crying! He quickly cheered up however when we gave him a piece of cake that little sugar maniac!

News on me. I just finished my first half marathon yesterday, May 9. I did ok time, 2 hours and 16 minutes. It was not the greatest but I blame it on the fact that I was getting sick. (Poor Lucas he is sick sick too!) But I did it and I am so proud of myself for finishing. Also, school is coming to an end, thank goodness, and I took a job at the old apartment complex where we used to work. Instead of caretaking, however, I am working in the office. It is a pretty sweet deal. They offered me a free apartment and hourly pay. We are really blessed. Anyways, because I did not get into nursing school I am going to sit back and let Sean finish (he only has a year and a half left). Once he gets into his career, that being the Border Patrol or some secret ops in the military, I will start my school back up again. But I am going to take my time and figure out what I really want to do. Right now I am really enjoying being mom and doing the mom thing.

Here I am right before the run!

Finish Line! Done finally!

The whole reason why I started running the first place.....for the shirt. Best shirt that I have ever worked for!

Yay for Lucas turning 1!! That is so exciting! And I think you had a great time for your marathon! Is your hubby in the Army? Mine is in the National Guard and is going to be commissioned this summer... hooray for the military!
