Thanksgiving Day

In honor of my one year anniversary since my last post, I am finally putting up some pictures. However, I do post on my other blog every week.

This year we decided to do a race as a family. I had done this race last year with my dad and sister (as you may have read in my last post). It is a 5k in Queen Creek which always sponsers someone with cancer.

Here we are before the race. That is why we look so happy. Katie, Rachael, Jayden, Kyana, Grandma Webber, Megan, Ally, Grandpa Webber, Orson and Barb. And just so you know, I have to keep my ears warm.

Grandma walked around the block with Kyana and Megan, although they look like they just might be running.

Here are some finish line pictures. We didn't get Rachael, who in her first race, came in at 29 minutes. Wow.

Grandpa cut a minute off last year's time with just over 31 minutes.

Katie had to stop and tie her shoe, but still came in at 34 minutes. Unbelievable.

I had my personal best this year. I cut my time by 3 minutes with 41.48. My goal was 42 minutes and I finally achieved it.

Orson came in just seconds after me and look at the difference in our faces. He looks like he just ran 20 feet instead of three miles. So unfair.

Ally ran with Jayden.

At four years old, he completed all 3 miles.

A new Holt family tradition has begun. Anna just got her cast off on Tuesday. She is still in a boot and out of activity for 6 more weeks. Then she'll start training for next year.

We decided to go to the movies in the afternoon. We saw tangled in 3D and we all liked it.

We enjoyed an evening feast.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday.

 He had one of his best meets ever and qualified for the Regional championship in San Diego.  
He came in 7th place overall in the state of Arizona.

Since I have been working hard to get into better shape, I took the kids on a hike.  We drove over to South Mountain and chose a pretty easy 2 mile loop.

 Looking happy at the start

 Here we go

She's 9

Today Anna got a very special birthday present. I don't think it was really much of a surprise.
