One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Forgot to get a family pic on Thanksgiving... ugh! Here is one of the kids ruining their appetites by eating Fritos before dinner: (disclaimer: they don't do this regularly... but it is thanksgiving and Nana is in town, so pretty much anything goes)Thanksgiving dinner was amazing. I joke that everyone is afraid of my cooking because they always assign me fruit salad -- but maybe it is because they know that I love fruit so much? (and so do the kids) I will just keep telling myself that :) I ate the perfect amount of food this year. I hate the over-stuffed feeling for the rest of the day... so I tried to cut back a little. We ate around 5PM and I was actually hungry again before I went to bed. It probably was partially due to the 6 miles I ran during nap-time (another reason I liked my assignment, I had free time since I didn't have a lot of cooking/baking to do)... but I was happy to grab a little snack before bed!

Here is Evelyn getting a horsey-ride from her Uncle Chuck. She adores him :)
What else goes along with Thanksgiving weekend??... FOOTBALL!
The kids both love to watch football. They request it to be on tv regularly... whenever they hear the word "touchdown" they both throw both their arms in the air to signal for a touchdown... Evelyn will even take the football and throw it towards Noah and say "Go out for a pass Noah!"
Here they are on Friday morning having some fun playing with the football on our dead-end street:
And here is Evelyn leaving Noah in her dust and going for a touchdown :)

Happy Thanksgiving. Sounds like you had a wonderful day. Great job on running 6 miles before the big dinner :) We'll be home Sunday morning, so I am hoping to run a bit to work off the Thanksgiving food :)

Nice job on 6 miles on Thanksgiving, that's dedication!

The kids are adoreable with football, that's how baseball is in our house!

Kaylin also requests football. Funny. Must be something to do with their dads...
