Red River Runners Club

We are starting a RUNNERS CLUB for the community of Childress and the surrounding areas. We want it to be a fun organization... You don't have to run miles and miles at end...but you might just want to be surrounded by people that are interested in fitness and their health...

Our first meeting is going to be Tuesday, June 17th at 7:00 pm at Fun Family Fitness. Come if you are just interested in seeing what our plans are....

Our first sponsored run for the Childress area is planned for Saturday, July 19th...at 8:00 am... We are doing it during the same weekend of the OLD SETTLERS RODEO here in Childress. We are going to have a 5K run and a 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk.... Something for everyone... As of right now, we are collecting email addresses and addresses for possible interested members...
If you are interested in joining us....let us know...
you can email me at redriverrunnersclub@yahoo.com or call me at the gym (940) 937-3330.

Kids say things......

My kids and I know everyone's say some of the darndest...things...

TOP 10....(check out the blog for the top 5)

10....Kaitlyn has been asking everyone if they are having a baby...(it is embarrassing so I have to explain to everyone that she has been asking everyone...)

9.....Caden was acting like his dad....he acted like he had his time watch on and his heart rate monitor...(I guess you had to be there)...and then he said he was ready to run...

8.....Caden came in screamin'........I didn't say it....I didn't say it...and then I asked...What didn't you say....I didn't say SHUT - UP....they both got in trouble...and then they promised not to say it again...

7.....Caden's new thing...he doesn't like to eat strange things...but we have started making him...so he will say after we make him cry and eat....He says "I tried it and I like it"...(what a thought)

6.....Kaitlyn will ask me randomly...."How's the baby boy..." She will get out of her bed...and every time she gets in trouble..she will ask it...so I won't be mad at her...she is learning..

I hope everyone is having a great week....
Enjoy the rain while it lasts...

It is STILL a boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Caden got a boo-boo on his head...so they both decided they needed a bandaid...It is amazing how bandaids are just MAGIC....



The kids helping me blow out the candles....on my favorite cake of all times...RED VELVET...



Happy Mother's Day....got to love those flowers....






Can't you see that cute little nose and face of baby Colton...I really love that picture...How sweet and innocent...that is what I think until I feel him kicking my ribs...

I don't know what to do....it is even harder when it is not your child that is doing the biting...but it is your child getting bit...I have to walk a fine line....but I don't want it to keep happening if I can stop it....thank you again for all the thoughts...I was always told to bite them back...haha...but I really like the idea of the cold water....

It is still a boy....and believe me I have proof...I will be able to start buying and painting the room....We are still debating on the name...I have agreed to Colton but now Toby likes the idea of Cameron and calling him Cam....(why not just call him his name....) I did get the most awesome picture of the baby.... I was really needing to have this sonogram and see the baby...I have been getting depressed and frustrated (and I still have 3 months) and really needed to see why I was going through all of this....Everything was good on the baby...They did actually say that my date moved up using the date of the sonogram...(July 28th) I sure hope that happens...that is about a week earlier than the first date...

We are going to Tyler this weekend. We are going to get to spend Mother's day with Toby's parents. I told him we better go now because we won't be able to go much longer...I don't want to sit in a car for 7 hours there and back...so we are going...We will leave about 5 am in the morning and do the normal trip there.....Leave and stop at Decatur (at IHOP) to eat breakfast...then we get to Tyler about noon...so it will be good. We are probably going to the zoo...(if you get to ever go to Tyler you have to go to the zoo...it is so good and clean)....Toby is going to run another 5k and Kaitlyn, Caden, Toby's dad, and I are going to walk in the funwalk....it should be fun....and then we are going to just visit with his parents....

I did get my mother-in-law a great plant from Ross's...It is gorgeous...and then I actually got my sister-in-law a plant for mother's day and just as a nice gesture....

My mom will have to wait...we probably go up and see her next weekend.

Happy Mother's Day to everyone...and don't forget all your mothers and your mother-in-laws...You know your husbands won't remember...or even you siblings...that reminds me to call my brothers and make sure they don't forget...

Need your prayers....

I am sad to announce that a dear friend of mine just lost her 24 year old brother. Dora Lomax just recently started helping me teach a BEGINNER class here at the gym. I got a couple phone calls this morning letting me know...I just thought it would nice to let those of you know.....GOD BLESS HER AND HER FAMILY...

I need some parenting help....

How do you stop children from biting? And how to stop someone's kids from biting yours?

Please.....I need any suggestions....we think we have tried everything but both of us are up for any suggestions...

I hope everyone is having a great week...
I am sure enjoying the rain...how 'bout you?

Thank you for all the birthday wishes and memories!

I want to personally thank everyone that has made my birthday a special one...This is probably one of my favorites...I can honestly say that I have some TRUE and GOOD friends....
It all started with waking up at 5 to go to the gym....Bikini Bootcamp is over today so we have the final weigh-in....Toby made sure he woke up to wish me Happy Birthday....Then the kids woke up and Kaitlyn and Caden actually wished me Happy birthday and asked "Where's your cake? I want some..." Then I went to the blogs again...my friend Donna...wished me a Happy B-day on her blog...then my friend from Wheeler and her daughter called and sang to me on the answering machine....my mom has been giving me birthday gifts for the past month....you know how that is....then a group of friends got together to have lunch today....it was great...thanks Sharon, Amy, and Marci for the special lunch...and I want to thanks Ashley for the beautiful candle and Amy and McKenna for the cute little purse..too sweet...and I truly loved the shout out on my friend's Charla's blog...it was nice...I will have to steal that idea for someone's next b-day...also thanks to Trey and Donna for the nice comments they made on her blog...Also a good BLOG friend Dawn made a special shout out on my blog....and last but not least...my wonderful husband got me a hour massage from Denise and my favorite cake....RED VELVET...he actually does listen and pay attention to me....THANK TO EVERYONE for making my birthday one...to....remember....
