Thanksgiving In a Nutshell
- Individual Bible time
- Turkey trot (some did a 5k, others 10k–great times, we were three brothers and three sisters strong)
- Energizing breakfast (think bacon, eggs, yogurt + fruit, pumpkin muffins, and coffee)
- Christmas decorating
- Food prep
- Great family time
- Recounting our blessings before family Bible time
“And in that day shall ye say,
Praise the Lord, call upon his name,
declare his doings among the people,
make mention that his name is exalted.”

Congrats on the turkey trot! I was wondering if you guys did any races 🙂 We had ours a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving — it was my first 10k, and a blast! Also: your run tops look so warm and cozy! Now that it’s colder around here I might need to get one myself. Thanks for sharing your day.
Thanks, Katie! Well, we didn’t do an official race, just our own. 🙂 Yes, our tops are from UnderArmour–ColdGear. LOVE them!
What a neat idea! I love the thought of a thanksgiving morning run, but we don’t have anything official in my small town. Perhaps next year I will see if I can recruit my sister and a few friends to join me… Thank you for the info about the run tops too.
Yes, we hope our numbers grow! We girls have done a turkey trot at least one other year (I think two?), so we doubled this year! 🙂 I honestly love my UA ColdGear top and wear it a TON in the winter. It’s so perfect for cool days. You should totally coordinate a turkey trot with friends and family next year!
I just ordered one! 🙂
I love it! Hope your Thanksgiving went really well!
Thanks! It did!
That’s great! Thank you for sharing your day! I’ll have to check out your running tops. They look so warm. 😀
Looks like a great day you all had! Ellie is adorable 🙂
Thank you–it did, and yes, I agree about Ellie.
Did Anna make the balloons on the table? very creative!!
She did! She’s been perfecting the snowman balloon. 😉
my side of the family do not celebrate thanksgiving but my in-law do (usually i am in charge and delegates what others need to do) because i have to make gravy from scratch and other food… my mother in law is over 85 years old…her memory is fading so she no longer can cook… nowadays we bring her out….this year my mom’s birthday is at thanksgiving week so we had a hugeeee celebration for her because for 3+ years we all didn’t celebrate because my husband was sick (2014 & 2015), 2016 my mom finished her chemo/radiation…2017 i make sure she celebrate even if its home… we had a great time and watching my mom glow makes me. great pics sarah… thanksgiving i am bless my husband and mom is recovering…i am bless my dad is at peace & happy and as family we’re together even though we don’t celebrate.
Thanks for sharing, Annie! Love reading about what y’all do! I know you have been through a lot!
Thank you for sharing such lovely family photos, they are a joy to see.
Love and God bless,
Love your comments!
I don’t comment very often but I just HAD to say how cute Daniel is! And it is amazing how similar he looks to Joshua when he was a toddler, like they could be twins!
Thanks for commenting. Yes, Daniel looks so much look Joshua. You are 100% right!
Thanks for a fun peak into your lovely day! I’m curious about your running skirts. That is something I’d like to add to my wardrobe! Thanks! 🙂
Our running skirts we had custom made by a lady from California. I have two, and use them for exercise and hiking–super comfy and flexible! We’ve also used athletic skirts from New Creation Apparel. You do a google search on them. I believe it’s called their sports skirt. The one we had custom made is from a very stretchy fabric.
The decorating looks fun. What is your mom doing on the floor – exercises? 🙂
It’s the posture pump we referred to on her back post so not really an exercise.
We did our Christmas decorating a few days after Thanksgiving. The earlier, the better. 😉
Good job with the running. I’m impressed. 5 or 10K is a lot. I’m working my way up to running one mile. How do you run without tripping in a long skirt? I where a shorter dress (landsend) with leggings. The skirt comes right about mid knee. We wear loose pants occasionally, but skirts still a lot.
Good job on the Christmas decorating! Our running skirts are mid-calf and don’t trip us–they’re not long enough to do that. So it works great! Great work on running!
