happy thanksgiving my friends!

28 Nov

we had a great thanksgiving day. we got up early and headed to dallas to run 8 miles in the turkey trot. it was a blast! ryan & jen slowed their pace so we could run together. it was a cool route through downtown dallas with some great views! here’s the pic we took prior to the race…dad obviously thought the camera already snapped and started walking away…

after the race, we went to my parents & stuffed our faces with an awesome meal. all of the traditional thanksgiving foods…turkey, dressing, mac & cheese, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, rolls, tons of desserts…yummy! i was the fullest i have been in a long time. kamryn enjoyed her first thanksgiving meal…she really liked the turkey…and the whipped cream! then, we watched football the rest of the day, like the rest of america. i absolutely love thanksgiving. i am thankful to God for giving me such a wonderful husband, precious children, loving parents & fun siblings! we really have so much to be thankful for…the country in which we live, comfortable beds, warm clothes, hot showers, good food, close friends, etc. i feel very blessed. i hope all of you had a great thanksgiving!

here are some shots we took yesterday afternoon while we were playing outside in my parent’s yard…
