Giving Thanks In Our Own Way

Though we are very blessed to have family members around us, we rarely spend a holiday with just our little family.  We discussed it as a family, carefully listening and considering each family member's opinion and then we turned down four invitations for a traditional Thanksgiving spent with extended family. 

Here are a few of the highlights...

Running a 5K first thing Thursday morning in 16 degree temperatures with my BFF.  (Not who I was planning on running it with, but we decided at the very last minute to brave the cold...)
(I am well aware that this is NOT a good photo of me)

THE not-so-traditional-dinner...
The children voted between tacos at home or dinner at the Golden Corral.  The Golden Corral buffet won.  It was certainly an interesting crowd there on Thanksgiving Day!! And that is all I'm going to say about that...
  And of course as evening came, we had a Family Carnefel:
Complete with a 'Sucking Marshmallow game' courtesy of Ellie, a 'Turkey Hunt' courtesy of Megan, a 'Left/Right Turkey Story' written by Megan and a good old-fashioned game of Twister.

Drew entertained us with Peek-a-Boo.

Our cup surely runneth over--we are very blessed!

Happy Thanksgiving 2010!
