How many of you can say you didn't eat any turkey on Thanksgiving? We can!! My poor mom and her malfunctioning meat thermometer left us with a medium rare turkey. Luckily the sides (my favorite part of the meal) didn't disappoint.
Gavin, Jack and Ryan started off the holiday festivities with a Turkey Trot. They all finished within a minute of each other. Ryan crossed the finish line first with Jack 30 seconds behind and Gavin 10 seconds later. It's the first time he didn't need to "let" them win.

And of course a cousin party wouldn't be complete without a sleep over!Gavin kept trying (unsuccessfully) to turn our dinner conversation into a gratitude moment but it just wasn't going to happen, but I do have so much to be thankful for. Thanksgiving is all about family and being together and this was more evident than ever this year. I am so grateful for my amazing husband and 6 children, and also very thankful for my parents and siblings (and their spouses).
