On Thanksgiving Morning, I decided to do my first ever offical run more than a 5 k. Luckily for me my friend Meredith was running it as well, it was quite fun, and It made me want to run faster and more races. I was able to finish 88 overall, 13th in my age group but I was mostly happy because I ran 4 miles in 35 minutes. It made me realize I could run faster if I needed to.
This Thanksgiving we were reminded how thankful we are for great friends. Our good friends the Swintons came to provo for monday, tuesday and wednesday. We were able to do a lot and do our favorite activities together (play games and eat dessert). Tuesday was jammed packed, Jenna and I ran about 4 miles in the morning, Danny and Tyler went golfing (the weather is so nice in Provo), and the kids and us moms went to the Bean Museum , a Museum of stuffed (real) animals, and the BYU dinosaur museum. Once the boys were finished bowling we thought it would be fun for thatcher and stiriling to go bowling, so we all went, to find out the boys only thought it was fun for a few rounds. Later that night we played rook and had a great time (Danny and I won that night, but lost on Monday night). Wednesday Morning we went to Cracker Barrel , a first for Danny, and sent them on there way. Thanks for coming to Provo.

My flag football team (the Thundercats) five-peated this year as the women's top division champions. I have been on the team for the past three years. Danny, Kylie, Morgan, and Danny's parents were all on hand to witness the exciting event. This was definitely the most difficult of the three championship games I have played in. The majority of the other team were members of Kylie's rugby team and so they knew how to play. The first half was a defensive war, and in the closing minutes they drew first blood with an amazing touchdown pass. We got the ball at the beginning of the second half and made a slow methodical drive into the endzone. On the ensuing drive, we converted a overthrown pass into a pick six. We forced them to punt on their next drive, and once again slowly moved the ball downfield. My best play of the game came on third down and 10. I caught an underthrown pass at my knees and turned upfield averting four or five tackles. That first down sealed it for us, and we won 13-6. It was fun to celebrate with everyone, and to receive my third intramural champion t-shirt (especially since Danny designed it). Morgan was obviously excited by the win, and despite the freezing cold, shared a smile with the camera.
