Happy Thanksgiving!

Well, Thanksgiving is already over, but I finally found a few minutes to post. We had a great turkey day! My parents came up from Billings on Wednesday (they will stay until Sunday morning) and we were so glad to see them. Thursday morning, Susan and I ran the 5 mile Turkey Trot here in Spokane. We thought we might be running in the snow, but the weather was great for running... just cool enough. We think around 700 people showed up for the run. The course was through and around Manito Park, a very popular floral garden. We had a fun time! At the same time, Tom was playing flag football with a bunch of guys from our ward. They have access to an indoor playing field every year. Tom came home with a ton of carpet burns on his knees and legs. But, he acted like it was worth it because he had a lot of fun!

Around noon, we headed over to Susan and Kurt's to eat some appetizers to hold us until the big feast. Then, we ate dinner around 6:00. Everything was so good! We made green jello salad and brought the drink. We had pies from White Box Pies.... apple pear and pecan. The whole day couldn't have been any tastier!

Poor little Jordyn was still sick. She did have a spoonful of mashed potatoes, so I guess that has to count as her Thanksgiving dinner. She is finally keeping down her food. She was extremely grumpy the past two days. I took her to the doc. this morning and they said she has an ear infection. We got her some meds., so we'll see if that helps.

All of the family is having a great time... it's always sad when they have to leave and you go back to your regular routine. I guess we still have Christmas to look forward to!

We did have a fun weekend together.
Emily's green jello was a hit and on Sat. she made sloppy joes and home fries for everyone. She is the America's Test Kitchen queen!
