Super Citizen, Valentines Boy and the Great Aloha Run...

Ok, so I've got some catching up to do....where to start?

Brooklyn was Super Citizen for the month of January. She was SO excited. She's been hoping she would be chosen ever since school started. They hold an assembly every month to honor the super citizens. It's kind of a big deal...

Next up: Reedy's Birthday!!! Reedy turned 8 on Feb 14. I can't believe my little boy has gotten so big. He is such a special kid. Having Reed has changed my life in so many ways and has made me strive to become a better person. He is the most amazing big brother and such a big help around the house. He's so tender and caring and such a complete goof ball. Just the thought of him makes me smile. I love him to pieces and I can't believe he's growing up. I am so proud of who he is.For his birthday, he wanted to go out to his favorite restaurant, The Old Spaghetti Factory. He loves it there because he is positively bananas for their tortellini. You know they are getting old when the kid's menu no longer cuts it. We took all our kids and my dad, sis, niece and nephew. It was a perfect way to celebrate.

Last of all, on Feb 19th I participated in the Great Aloha Run! It's a course that runs from Aloha Towers to the Stadium...8.15miles. I thought it would be a great way to celebrate Charlotte turning 4 weeks old! My dad and I went down together and I walked the course with my sister in laws, friends, and nieces.

Before the Race:
The girls...Nanu and Teyana (my 12 and 13 yr old neices), friends:Emily, Tiffany, Sister in Laws: Samantha and Jolena. That's Charlotte in the stroller.

Charlotte and me.


We made it!!! WOOHOO!!!

My Dad, Charlotte and Me...he beat us big time!

Holy Cow. Brooklyn is gorgeous!!! And Reedy is such a big boy now, and so handsome. Last time I saw him he had no front teeth. Great Job Molly doing the Aloha run. That is fantastic, and you look great. Love the glasses. Is there a date for Reed's baptism yet?
