Mom's new style

After the Rex Lee Run, I took my mom to go get a new haircut. Emily Mortimore cut it for her. She looks so pretty!

Family Pictures

We went and had some family pictures taken before mom started chemo, just thought I would share a few - there will be more on mom's blog.

I love this picture of the boys! The tops of the trees look awesome!

Rex Lee Run - March 15, 2008

My little sister Alyssa and I ran in the Rex Lee Run down at BYU on Saturday. We had a TON of fun doing it together. We ended up only running a 5K instead of a 10K because I was getting over phenomena.

Here we are before the race...
The run is to raise money for cancer reasearch. You could honor a cancer victim or fighter.
Alyssa honored our Aunt Sonya who passed away in December from Pancreatic Cancer and I honored my mom who is fighting Breast Cancer.
There were TONS of runners!
We finished!

Here is Grandpa with Vivian

What's up???

So all I feel like the only thing I have been putting on my blog lately are "tags." I cant find my USB for my camera and have tons of pics I want to post...So...hopefully I will find that soon! For those of you who dont know (sorry I hadnt said anything to you Laur) my mom was diagnosed with Breast Cancer about a month ago and began chemo last week. So most of my "blogging time" if you will, has gone to keeping everyone up to date on what is going on with her - her blog is under "Mom's Journey" if you want to take a look. However, hers needs to be updated too with my pics. Just thought I would let you know.
To come...
I am new Aunt to twins!

Five Random or Weird Facts
#1 I am absolutly terrified of Alligator's and think there is one in every pond, lake or ocean I am in.
#2 When I was getting babysat when I was little I was playing airplane with my sitter - she was laying on her back on the floor with her legs up in the air, and I would lay on her feet and she would glide me around in the air and then take me for a crash landing by bending her knees and throwing me on the couch. Well one of my crash landings really became a crash and I broke my wrist...anyway, because of this incident my middle finger is totally not straight (I hate it).
#3 When I sleep I have to have a pillow in-between legs, if my knees are touching it will drive me crazy.
#4 I am totally money anal and wont buy something unless I can pay cash.
#5 Casey loves eating icecream in bed while we watch a movie...I cant eat or drink anything unless a light is on - If I cant see it, I dont think I can get it in my mouth.
