Sad it is over...

I love Thanksgiving.  I think I mentioned that before, like a hundred times, but I really do love it.  The cooking, the family time and the leftovers.  This year I added running five miles to the mix and except for not being able to walk on Friday, it was a great experience.

Turkey Trotting....
Not exactly sure why my hair looks like that.

I don't have a bunch of pictures from the actual eating festivities because I was too busy stuffing my face with my mom's glorious food and daring my extremely liberal sister to bring up more political topics to the republicans in attendance.  That was fun!  I am always sad to see Turkey Day come to an end. 

Looks like I am not the only one!

I was exhausted and full, in my belly and my soul.  But now, I am so ready for Christmas.  Bring on the cheer and decorations.
This is about the extent of our decorations around here since we always leave for two weeks and head to Denver.  (And we do have house sitters so no attempting to rob us.  We don't have anything anyway, so it would be futile!)

I love, luv, lurve Christmas!  We get to spend two weeks with Jeff's parents and are always surrounded by friends.  Sufice it to say people, I love the holidays.  They start in October with the celebration of my anniversary, birthday, then Thanksgiving, followed by Christmas and the New Year!  By the time Valentine's Day rolls around, I am all holiday'd out!

I truly hope all of my four readers had a great Thanksgiving and are looking forward to an even better Thanksgiving!

Isn't it great to have these 3 months totally covered with family, friends, food and celebrations. All good! I think the hair adds just the right touch to the running picture - running seems to fit you! You are so lucky to have so much to enjoy! As they say, "It's a wonderful life!"

nThen you stop, in the middle of the smells, noise and family caos, and look at the Beautiful children you brought into the world. I always stop to say we are truly Blessed.
