I love Thanksgiving


  • I love getting up early on Thanksgiving and running the Turkey Trot with my family. I love cheering on our kids as they run their little races and receive Turkey trophies.

  • I love that the 'O factor' gets to run in a race this year

  • I love getting out and running in the cold, crisp air. I love watching all the people run with their families, talking about their plans for the day

  • I love that everyone wears toboggans and gloves

  • I love that Eric helps everyone sit out their toboggans and mittens in neat little piles the night before

  • I love how excited my kids get about running their Turkey shirts and pinning on their race numbers

  • I love that Soph and Joshua are old enough to run in the longer races

  • I love driving to Indiana on thanksgiving

  • I love the fact that we get coffee for the road

  • I love butterhorn rolls and homemade noodles. I don't love the fact that I can't make homemade noodles worth a diddly. correction: I love Grandma and Aunt Mary's homemade noodles and butterhorn rolls!

  • I love hanging out with my brothers and sister and their families

  • I love the deep fried turkey that my brother makes

  • I love the fact that my sister in law posts a menu of the food in the kitchen

  • I love that the Titans are playing today

  • I love that we actually put our Christmas tree up early this year.

  • I love how neat Joshua and Wes are and the pride they took in decorating their trees in their rooms and hanging lights on their bed

  • I love the fact that you have a hard time seeing Sophie's tree amongst the clutter in her room. (even though I have a panic attack every time I walk in)

  • I love watching my kids play with their cousins

  • I love pouring over the ads with my sister and planning our strategy for Friday's shopping spree

  • I love the fact that Melissa, Chasisty and Reagan are going shopping with us this year

  • I love how much we laugh on our shopping spree

  • I love having thanksgiving at Jimmy and Melissa's.

  • I don't love how this will be the first Thanksgiving without my mom there. She loved this holiday. But I love the fact that she is with Jesus now, completely healthy.

  • I love the fact that God is with us today, healing our hearts, making our relationship with Him and with each other stronger. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. -Romans 8:28
