Thanksgiving 2011

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year. We started it off with our annual Thanksgiving morning run. It was a lot warmer this year than it was last year. And instead of pushing two strollers with all of the kids, two of the kids decided to ride their bikes, and Kevin pulled the other two in a stroller.

Then we cleaned up and headed over to my parents for dinner!

The kids had a wonderful time playing with their cousins, and it was great to have the whole family there together, except for my Brother in Law, Tyrel, who had to work.

It was fun to hang out, look at the Black Friday ads, relax, and visit after dinner.
I saw the techno-savvy kids like this, and had to get a shot. How times have changed!

I am so thankful for so many things this time of year!
Some that have been on my mind lately:
My husband, who works so hard to support our family. And he is the best daddy to our kids!
Our kids, who are the light of my life.
Our extended families.
Our warm home.
Our bed.
Our cars. Especially the heated seats!
Our freedom.
Our health.
The mountains.
The wonderful holiday season.
Modern technology & modern medicine.
Our talents & abilities.
Automatic doors.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
