This Thanksgiving may have been my favorite Thanksgiving so far. My dad, Jennifer and I got up early for our annual 5k Turkey Trot. This year the race benefited Grace Works Ministries, an organization that is very near and dear to our hearts.
|Waiting for the race to begin after the a prayer was said and National Anthem was sung! It made the race feel like an official sporting event!|

|How cute is my dad?|
|We were very proud of ourselves after the race!|

After the race, J. L. came over and we all worked together to prepare our meal while watching a little football. After eating we had planned to watch The Sound of Music (J.L. has never seen it and I'm not sure how we've been dating for almost 3 years and I didn't know about this travesty), but the DVD player wouldn't work, so we watched James Bond on TV instead. I think we all fell asleep at one point or another in the movie, but we did manage to get out for a walk around the farm to look for tinder before it got dark.
|It's never a real trip down to the house unless we visit the twins!|
We ended our night eating pumpkin pie around the fire pit and enjoying the beautiful weather.
I'm thankful for so many things, but I think I'm most thankful for all of the love and significant relationships I have in my life. This Thanksgiving really reminded me of that.
What did you do for Thanksgiving?
