what a difference a year makes....

Whew- a whole year has gone by and I have managed to keep us all alive and relatively normal. Since I won't be here for Easter this year, I got the kiddos dressed up this past Sunday and we had an early Easter test drive. I can't believe how much has changed in just a short year! Looking back on our very first family Easter photo- I can appreciate how far we've come. A few weeks ago marked our "running anniversary" and I also hit my 100 lb weight loss mark. It was a tough year filled with many obstacles but Jared and I celebrated in typical Hambly fashion any ways- chocolate chip cookies and ice cream! Who'd of thought that Sharalyn would have sparked such an enthusiatic fire for excersize! I am grateful for her positive attitude when ever I would call her and complain and how she was always so supportive and never laughed when I told her my time in the latest race we did. The thought of Janelle, Jared and I sitting at IHOP the night before our first 5K run trying to "carbo load" still brings a smile to my face. We consumed more calories that we burned. :)

So it can be done. 100 pounds is amazing and you look tiny and happy and beautiful. And the rest of the fam doesn't look bad, either.

Great pictures! Mmmm...pancakes. Why'd you have to bring those up?

Congrats on the 100lb loss...that is so amazing! I am so jealous of you 'runners'.....something I can not do very well. You look great!
