A lot has happened in the months of Oct and Nov.... since my last post! I will try to catch everyone up to speed. It has been a very busy last two months. They have flown by. We found out the great news of Chris passing the NEW YORK STATE BAR at the beginning of NOV and so we went out to celebrate that night at a Thai restaurant. In the month of Oct, I had my race. Cortnie Johnson and her husband and little adorable baby boy came all the way from Syracuse to run with me. I picked up running about 10 months ago and decided to run a half marathon. It was really tough and I am glad I did it. We got about a 2 hour and 44 min time. Which we were happy with, considering the bottle neck at the beginning and the potty stops we had to make. All in all I am proud of myself. It took a lot for me because I am not a runner and don't really enjoy running so to commit myself enough to do 13 miles made me very proud.
Chris and I are the activity co-chairs at church right now and I think we put on a pretty awesome Halloween party. We also dressed up as Cats and of course princesses for the girls. Cats the musical was our inspiration for Chris and I think we did a pretty good job. It was a big success and a lot of fun. So we have picts of that. We also went to the Franklin Cider mill and the Circus before we left for two weeks in TN. It was a lot of fun, but both girls didn't make through the circus, they passed out before it was over, so we left a little early, but it was a pretty cool circus.
On the 17th Nov, the girls and I headed down to TN for a couple of weeks. The first week was a bit of a rough start because, I came down with a bad cold right as we were leaving to go there. So as would be expected with a new baby, (Brynlee was born on the 5th of Nov), I was sent to the room to recover before I could be around anyone for several days. haha. All in all, it was nice seeing the family. I hadn't had Thanksgiving with my mom and dad in about 10 years, so it was really nice having it with them. We had a fun time. Tiffinie took us to some really fun places. My camera ran out of batteries before I could get everything, but it was really fun. We went to ChuckECheese, the Sea Quarium, a Christmas light show, swimming with Brandi (Brandi and her family came over too, and were very sweet to Missoni and Alize', the girls love Brandi and Londy... and Jordy and Gary too! We also went to Library story time, the park and rode ponies. Everyone was very nice to the girls and we had a very nice stay. Thanks Tiffinie, Brandi and Mom and Dad for giving us such a nice time. We miss you all already! So that is our last two months and it looks that December is going to be just as busy, so I will hopefully update you all toward the end of the month. Merry Christmas to everyone and hope all is well with everyone!
We went to Orlando Temple!
Chris and I were sealed to eachother and then to Missoni in the Orlando Temple. I have no words to describe the wonders of the temple and how we felt on this day. They brought Missoni in to the sealing room in her white dress and the entire room burst into tears. Even people who had come into view the sealing that didn't know us were crying. It was amazing. My mom and dad were there, Chris' bro, Les and his wife Kim, and Tiff and Brock. It was a very special day. I love my family so much and so grateful for the great sealing power of the temple.
Boy meets girl in South Florida!
This is the Thompson Family love story. We should have started our blog a long time ago. So to make up for it, I am going to start back to the time I met Chris and move forward to now! Enjoy reading about our love story and how we are now doing as we make the LONG journey through Law School in Syracuse, New York! We now have a wonderful, beautiful busy 18 month old. We love her and she is the light of our lives!
We had a wonderful time down in South Florida......
We loved living in Ft. Lauderdale. Chris and I had nothing but a shabby studio apartment when we got married, but we loved it. It was so nice to see Chris ever day, while I finished up my degree at the Art Institute. He was working for Franklin Templeton and I was so busy with my thesis but we still found time to get away to the Botanical Gardens in the Gables, and Naples on the west coast. We had so much fun together our first year of marriage. Maybe too much fun, thats when I found out I was pregnant about 3 months after being married, with the biggest blessing in our life, Missoni, our gorgeous, lovely baby girl.
