Happy Thanksgiving!

We had so much fun this Thanksgiving! Our city has had a 5K and 1 mile family fun run for the past 3 years on Thanksgiving morning. So this year we decided to go and do the 1 mile fun run. We walked most of the time but it was a great way to start the day!

It was a pretty chilly morning. Even Lauren & Brynlie got their own racing numbers.

Alyssa and Kohler waiting for the race to start.

Here we are. Kohler's missing from the photo, he's actually standing next to Alyssa (oops).

Here we come, crossing the finish line. We sprinted the last stretch. It was fun because everyone was cheering us on (even though we were almost last place)!

Kohler, coming across the finish line.

Hanna found an injured Monarch Butterfly and decided to bring it home to live in her fairy garden.

This year we had Thanskgiving with our good friends, The Becksteads and Tukes. It was so much fun. It was also really nice to split up the meal 3 ways. It didn't seem like such a chore.

Getting ready to eat, Kohler, Christian Beckstead, Bryson Tuke & Alyssa.

Trevor Beckstead & Lauren.

Jaden Tuke, Kamary, Ashley Tuke & Kevan Beckstead.

Brynlie's yummy Thanksgiving dinner!

Silly boys!

Everything tasted great!

We did a Thanksgiving craft for the kids.

After dinner we just hung out and talked. We went through all of the Black Friday ads--so fun.

Here are our hosts, Wade & Jen Beckstead! They are the best friends ever!

This Thanksgiving we had so much to be thankful for. We have been incredibly blessed. I love my family, my husband, my kids and my friends. I am so thankful for the gospel of Jesus Christ that has brought so much peace and joy into my life. I am very blessed indeed!
