Future Olympians!

Tom and Abby participated in the Nutrition Fuels Fitness fun run this morning. For ages 6-9 year olds this was a half mile run complete with a medal at the end of the race for each participant. Boy did the twins feel special! Though we had to wake up early to get there and park about a mile away (they're not joking around when they want you to be in shape for this thing) the kids were cold but ready to go.

It was the first day in a long time that it hadn't rained and we were thankful for that. But the 45 degrees made it hard to fully enjoy that fact. We registered the twins on the spot and they got t-shirts and bib numbers for the race. They got to high five Dinger from the River Cats and various other adults dressed as fruits and vegetables. We even ran into an old friend, a preschool buddy from 2 years ago. Though the twins didn't remember him they thought his mom looked familiar.

Tom came in somewhere in the middle of the pack with a time of 4:22 and Abby rounded up the back of the pack with a time of 6 minutes. She was so cute running her little heart out all the way to the finish line.

After the race they each got to enter the food court and choose from salads, fresh fruit, chicken tacos, energy bars, bagels and water, lots of water stations around! Even mom and dad, though we didn't run the race were able to indulge in the after race treats. Nothing like a chicken taco from Dos Coyotes at 9 in the morning!

Februrary 2011 Telford Twins Update

Abby went to her first father daughter dance this February. She had been looking forward to it since I didn't sign her up last year. She put on her fanciest dress, we did her nails with pink polish and blue sparkling embellishments and we even curled her hair (with a half gallon of hair spray) to her specifications. She had an absolute blast. She told me she was the best dancer there because she takes dance lessons now. She is so confident! In other Abby news she sold 218 boxes of girl scout cookies! She was the second highest seller in her troop. She's going to receive a couple extra patches and pins for al her hard work and she is very excited.

Tom is currently obsessed with Star Wars. He begs to watch the Star Wars movies, he begs for star wars toys. He has a long list of acceptable star wars toys in his mind that he doesn't mind sharing with anyone that will listen. He's looking forward to his half birthday where he may or may not get something star wars to celebrate with. When we drove 6 hours south to the Pezific Coast Pez Convention the only Pez he was on the look out for was Star Wars. He came home with about 20 Star Wars pez. For about a week they were perched up in front of him at the dining room table so they could eat with him and watch his morning cartoon together.
