The Turkey Trotters Made it to the Finish

Every Thanksgiving morning, the Underwood boys run the Turkey Trot  through downtown Des Moines. When they finish, they are served breakfast. It's a treat to run in this lovely, sunny 40-degree weather!
Now they'll drive to Ollie for a Grandma Jonita Thanksgiving dinner.

Stone Crab and Kim

The Jerdees stopped for lunch at Doc Fords in San Carlos.  Kim is loving the stone crab.

Back to Disney for a Run or Two

Kim, Adam, and Landon flew to Florida today, registered for their races, and moved into the Dolphin Hotel. Here's their hotel comes with seating behind the falls for extra thrills. Landon does the Kids' Run on Saturday,  Adam does the Wine-and-Dine Half Marathon on Sunday. I'll be feeding their cat.

A is for Academics

Be is for Brains, Brawn, and Beauty. Hunter has it all. We attended the fall ceremony for handing out academic letters and gold bars. Hunter has been on the Honor Roll as a sophomore and junior at Valley High.

Amy is 50!

Landon and I did the decorating after his art class at the Des Moines Art Center.  Instead of putting 50 candles on a cake, we put 50 actual-size candles  around the patio and in the house so we could toast Amy  when the Underwoods arrived just after sunset.

A Look Back

I came across photos from 2004 taken at a gift opening party after Kim and Adam's wedding. I was stunned by the difference in height between Hunter and me. If we stand together now, he's the taller one!
