Can you believe I've never ran a Turkey Trot? I know. The girl who has run multiple races over a weekend has never run a turkey trot! But it's never worked with our family plans.
With us living in PA, and our family living in the South. Well, it's just 'us'. And I always feel a little guilty leaving my family at home to go run on Thanksgiving. And, I can't get them to join me for a 'family' outing to run one as a family. So while the rest of the running community is out trotting away, I was home in the kitchen today. But that's ok. No sadness here as I hope to get out tomorrow for a run. (Fingers crossed I can work it out with Hubby's schedule so that I won't have to run on the treadmill).
And I was able to get out yesterday for a couple of miles. This was me yesterday before the snow hit.
In years past, Hubby and I have gone out to eat on Thanksgiving day. This day, well it's usually a sad day for me since we are away from family. But now that Lil Man is older, we want to make our own memories with him. Hubby and I have our memories of Thanksgiving with family. So we want to create memories with Lil Man with his family... just right now his family happens to be the 3 of us.
So this year, I cooked. I used my Mom's recipe for her chicken and cornbread dressing. Lil Man and I made pecan pies and cookies along with lots of memories.
