Run, Mandy, Run!

Here I go again....I've decided to truly commit to training for the Borgess Run this spring.  Last time I was part of a run camp that was great and kept me on track.  This time I am hoping my friend Michelle can train with me...but if not, I'll do it alone!  The official run camp started this morning, so I started as well.  I bundled up and headed out into the "feels like 1 degree" morning and ran 4 miles....it was great!

Roller Skating!!!

Drew's preschool class had a field trip to a roller skating rink this past Wednesday!  It was so fun to watch the little kids experience skating for the first time.  Unfortunately, it just wasn't Drew's thing.  He did not like no feeling safe on his feet.  I tried to tell him how his Uncle Andy used to skate, to see if that would help him, but no, he flat out hated it!!!  But at least he tried...he told me that he is willing to try again when he is six.





1st "REAL" Haircut

Isaac has had two trims before his first real big boy haircut.  I decided around Christmas that it was time to cut it because a few people thought he was a girl when we were out and about!  Our good friend Michelle cuts all the boys hair, and does such a great job.  Isaac was quite the little trooper and did great!!! 

He looks a little sad to see his curls being snipped away...

Awwww...that's better!  What a  handsome little guy!


You can kind of see the final result here....much more like a big boy now!!!!  

I think he looks so adorable...but I do miss his curls a little!  Once they get their haircut, it seems like they just kind of grow up overnight.  :(

Mohawk Boys!!

A little from Christmas...

Michael and I had a great Christmas this year...we were able to travel to Texas and spend a good, solid two weeks there!  We had a great time visiting with friends and family and not feeling too rushed!  Here are just a few pictures...there will be more...

All of these pictures are ones I stole from my sister-in-law, Summer!  Here is a picture of Michael with his Mom and brother...



Fernihough Family...

What a blah weekend...

This past weekend was one I was really looking forward to...the boys had a birthday party for a friend, we had small group date night planned, the boys were going to sleep over at a friend's house, my high school small group girls were going to go to the movies on Sunday....BUT, sickness struck.  Drew woke up the Wed. before puking...all night long.  We hoped that it was just a Drew thing, but no such luck.  It hit Michael early Sat. morning and then me.  So, our great weekend was ruined...except the boys did get to go to Tyler's birthday party.  We thought we had escaped the sickness...WRONG!  So, needless to say, this past weekend did not go as planned...and I was not very happy about it!!!!!  So far Isaac and Noah are fine, so pray it stays that way!!!!

Family Photos 2008

The photographer who usually takes our pictures was unavailable to take this years photos, so we decided to let one of our former high schooler do the honors...and she did a GREAT job!  So enjoy!







Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!!!

It has been snowing non-stop today (and a lot of yesterday!).  It is so pretty...so fresh and so clean...oh, and so cold!!!!  I do love it, though.  Something about being inside, sipping on hot chocolate while watching the snow fall is just peaceful.  I wouldn't trade a day like today for anything!  To be honest, three out of the the five of us are still in our pajamas!  It's been a good day!!!

Here is a picture of our street.  I can't even begin to count how many times the snow plows have cleared the street!

I took this picture while standing on my front porch looking toward the street...

This was taken after Michael shoveled off the sidewalk so that we could get to our mailbox!

Michael is actually standing in the yard...can you tell how deep the snow is?!?!?!

Just a random self portrait...


Kaden R Fernihough

Meet our newest nephew, Kaden!  Kelsey gave birth on October 28th to this handsome little guy!  He is so sweet and tiny!!!





Pathetic Blogger...

Well, I can't really come up with any good excuses as to why I have been a pathetic blogger the past few months.  I mean, seriously, this is sad!!!  So, right now, I'm sitting down trying to organize all the blogs I want to do in the next few weeks....this will hold me accountable, right???
