I Need A Snow Day!

We got about 6 to 8 inches of snow this weekend and we had 2 days of family fun in the snow. The video is a little long, but if you can't spare a couple minutes, then skip to the last 30 seconds or so for Sadie's wipeout while sledding. Mike got a little too enthusiastic with his pushing (don't worry - it's not too bad - no injuries, just a tipped sled).

Sadie & Abby

A few weeks ago, Sadie had one of her best friends, Abby, over to play. They had way too much fun playing together and I was able to get some video of them in action. It's just under 2.5 minutes if you have the time.
Update: For some reason the video has been unavailable the past few days. I've tried to fix it - hopefully it's working now...

Match Party!

The much anticipated results are in... Mike will be staying at Wake Forest for an Ophthalmology residency! We are so excited that he matched and that it is a place that we love.
We had an eye ball party in his honor. Thanks to all the friends who came and humored us by really getting into it:

Stacey came all the way from AZ. Now that is true support! (So maybe she just happened to be here for work... )
Matt & Baby Wilder
Laurie, Randy and baby on the way. (Yes, he is wearing glasses in the womb!)
John Adam and Melanie with Oliver and Finn (they are studs, glasses or not!)
Liesl & Brett
Suzi & Emma
Emerson, Luke & Elena
Sadie sneaked a taste of the cake while we were taking this picture.
We won't find out about intern year until March, but as for July 2011 - June 2014 we'll be here in NC!

On December 12th I ran in the Charlotte marathon. Thanks to these girls who inspired me to run. They made the months of early morning training fun. Since I had never had the goal of completing a marathon, I was surprised that I could do it and actually enjoy it. Will there be another one in my future? We will see!
(Please note that this photo was taken after running 26.2 miles and is not the most flattering!)
