We had a great Thanksgiving. I ran a 10k in the morning. It seems like every time you run in a race people ask "what's your goal?" Mine is always the same a) don't die b) lose some butt. It was nice to get up and exercise before eating our weight in food for the next 3 days. Todd and I made our first Thanksgiving meal together. Yes, after 9 1/2 years of marriage, we actually made a turkey! My parents and brother came over to eat, then we headed out to my aunt and uncle's house to play some games. We won a turkey balloon and a turkey squeeky toy - so there! It was lots of fun. Friday we drove up to my parents cabin, the kids had a great time running around outside. I have to say, if I lived where it is really cold, I think I would be a recluse and would do alot of online shopping at Old Navy. We headed back on Sunday and put up our Christmas decorations. MANY broken glass bulbs later, the house looks great!

Either I'm a bad sis-in-law for not knowing that you were a serious runner, or you just started recently?? Way to go on the run, even though your reason number 2 does not apply to you!!

Ummm, for as long as I've known you, you've NEVER had "a butt" to lose...even when pregnant!

Cute pics, and I have to agree with the above posts about your butt!
