I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family, friends, co-workers, your TV… whatever you ended up doing. 🙂
I started my day with the YMCA’s 5K Turkey Trot. I convinced Jessica to run it with me. It was great to have a partner out there in the FREEZING cold weather. My top layer consisted of not only Under Armour but also Nike and Target and I was still frozen solid!
Soon after Clint and I headed to Clarinda for a couple family dinners. We started the day at my Gr’pa and Gr’ma Goecker’s house for lunch and conversation and then ended our day/evening at Clint’s mom and step-dads.
Let’s just say I started off with really good intentions and ate more veggies than anything at Grandpa’s. Alcohol, little smokies and m&m’s won at the Swanson’s.
Good thing I am starting a 21 Day Challenge with 20 other women on Monday. Hot for the Holiday’s is our slogan. 😉
Anyway, back to Thanksgiving. The kids had a good time competing against each other in the Bean Bag toss.
And the adults had a lot of good conversation and some serious belly laughs. Grandma Drakes cookie catastrophe story had a few of us in tears. Hilarious that lady.
I even was able to wrangle the boys into a quick family photo:
Poor Kyle will never be an adult in his dad’s eyes when it comes to hugs:
We wrapped up the evening on the farm around 7:30 to make our way back to the city life.
Once home I got the stare down from Champ, so after 15 minutes of that ridiculous game, I let him up on my lap.
Cheers to a wonderful weekend, whatever it is you are doing! If you are one of the crazies out there battling the black Friday shopping crowds – bless you hearts.
No. Stinking. Way.
