My Thanksgiving morning started at the gym. Well, after I got the bird in the oven that is!
We had a blast! I’m so grateful for my gym family.
They are so inspiring and motivating!
When I got home The 9-Year-Old was ready for our Turkey Trot. He declared yesterday that he wanted to run 3 miles. I was like, “Are you sure?”
And he was like… “YES!”
OK, then… let’s do it!
We took 2 long breaks. This was after the first mile and a half.
He was really into it until about the 2.5 mile point. Then I had to coach him to finish but he did it! And I’m so proud of him. This may be another new Thanksgiving tradition!
I got back and hit the kitchen. There was a lot of cooking to do!
The boys were totally into it.
And The Husband helped more than he ever has!
We were all having a blast!
This is my favorite day of the year and always one of my favorite photos.
Dinner came out great!
I kept it veggie heavy and then totally indulged in the pies my mother-in-law brought. SO GOOD.
After dinner we watched some football, and then hit the games! Another family tradition.
The Husband won Clue, both of us were the Trivial Pursuit team champions and then the 9-Year-Old took the Screw Your Neighbor pot yet again this year. (Screw Your Neighbor is a 1-card card game we play where the whole goal is to not have the lowest card.)
We finally put the kids to bed and are now watching The One I Love — it’s very intriguing!
This has honestly been one of the best days of my life. I can’t even explain it how awesome it was.
I hope you had a great day too. Don’t worry about what you ate or drank or did or didn’t do… just take a deep breath, soak it in, and smile. Tomorrow is yet another day to wake up and simply do what you can, when you can! :)
