These Are My Thanksgiving Pants

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I think we pull the paper pilgrims off rather nicely. Don’t you? ;)

This morning my sisters and I kicked off turkey day off with a little arm work at the gym.

Ashley works at a gym and created an arm circuit for us that consisted of pull-ups, dips, curls, upright rows, should press, and push-ups. It was a great way to kick off the Thanksgiving morning.

I’ll admit I was a little jealous of all the Turkey Trotters taking up my Facebook/twitter/instagram feeds this morning. The closest Turkey Trot near us is still about a 45 minute drive away and we’re usually too lazy to make the drive. Usually we create our own turkey trot, but my foot is still on the mend and Kelly is recovering from an injury too. The gym workout was a great alternative and it was still nice sweating it up with my sisters. :)

After we returned from the gym, we turned on the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade (I love watching the parade for the broadway performances at the beginning – that’s the best part!)

Made breakfast

I had 1/2 a waffle, two eggs, and a pear.

And got to work in the kitchen!

And I made parmesan brussel sprouts (my new favorite side dish).

My Aunt Carol and Uncle Bob hosted Thanksgiving this year. Per usual, we had a huge crowd and were lucky enough to dine outside under the beautiful Florida sunshine. It was a little on the cool side in the shade, but perfect in the sun.

My aunt made pilgrim hats and Indian headpieces for everyone. Can you tell she used to be a teacher?

Even Great-Great Aunt Evelyn rocked one.

Right around 2:00pm, the turkey was carved and it was time to eat.

Desserts!

Why are dessert plates so small? I should have grabbed one of the dinner plates for all the pies. ;)

It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving (or any holiday, really) without glurg.

Family time around the fire pit = the PERFECT ending to the day.

I love fire pits. We stayed and talked for over two hours around that pit and I could have easily stayed longer.

Man, I’m wiped. I came home, uploaded the photos, then proceeded to take a mini nap with my lap top still on my lap. My mom said my hands were even still on the keys – I guess I was typing in my dreams? ;)

Time to enjoy a little football, then call it an early night.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Good Night!
