Run Frances Run!

We are in countdown mode!  There are some big events coming up in the month of February.  Frances turns 3 on Feb 8th, Mercedes Marathon is the following weekend....and let's not forget Meme's birthday is Feb 4th!  Frances and Daddy have been training very hard lately. You can catch a glimpse of Frances in training mode in the video below.

If you take a look back at this time last year, Frances was just learning to use a walker...Fast forward to the present, and we can hardly keep up with her!

Daddy is running the marathon (that's 26.2 miles) in honor of Frances. This year is extra special for us, as it will be Frances' last year as a Bell Center student.  Please consider making a donation in honor of Frances and all the children of The Bell Center by clicking the link below.  You can also mail a check (made out to The Bell Center) to us if you prefer.

Christmas Catch-Up

One day I'll get back to blogging on a regular basis, but until then I will keep subjecting you to occasional photo explosions of what we've been up to.  We are slowly getting back into the swing of things following a fun-filled Christmas season.  Then I realized today that Frances turns 3 (ahhhhh) in exactly one month and I got sad and have been looking at her baby pictures all morning.  I guess this is what most Mommy's go through as babies grow up.  I absolutely love watching her grow into a young lady, but I soooooo miss her being a baby!

Big girl!
So, here is your promised monstrosity of photos from the past few weeks....
