Overall, we did well. The weather was awful hot and humid. I was talking Marshall "back from the cliff" by mile 2. . . lol. Then, I had to talk myself off the cliff by mile 8. I managed to pull off a re-peat win, which happens to also be my second ever marathon win. Marshall and I ran together for about 10 miles, but then the 3rd place male started slowly pulling away from us. At this point, I told Marshall to leave me and see if he could stay with the 3rd place male. If Marshall happened to die in the process, it didn't really matter as there wasn't anyone within viewing distance behind us.

Now, I've had a pretty busy November. Two weeks after the marathon I hosted a baby shower for my sister and her very special baby boy. He is due at the end of January, but maybe he can come a week later on mine and Krissy's birthday (Feb. 3). We've shared a birthday our whole lives, so what's one more person :)
This little boy is going to have an AWESOME nursery. It's Harry Potter themed, which is our favorite book ever. I may have gotten a little carried away. . . but who doesn't like Harry Potter? I may be a procrastinator, but managed to pull off the big crafts/projects on time. I did have to have my friend, Kaleigh, come over a little early so her and her mother could help me with a few decorations and food prep.
I'm getting pretty skilled with my diaper crafts year alone! This was the 3rd and 4th diaper craft in this ye (and other crafts really - I LOVED how the measuring stick turned out).

I think everyone had a good time. The games were entertaining and Krissy got to keep a lot of the items associated with the games. We did a Brown Bag game, where there was a letter on each bag, and the bags spelled out BABY SHOWER. Then guests had to reach in and feel what think was in each bag. The item in each bag was a baby item that started with the letter that was on the front of the bag. For example, b = bottle, or brush, or bear, etc.
