Day 739: Thanksgiving

Right before the Turkey Trot!

Yikes, I’m behind! Thanksgiving was almost a month ago, but here’s a post on the holiday for you.

Scott and I started out Thanksgiving walking the Turkey Trot in the morning. It was freezing, but we really wanted to do it! At least the sun was out; it was pretty windy, though. Jim Cornelison sang the Star-Spangled Banner before we took off, which was pretty cool. I yelled “Go Hawks!” when he was done. Anyway, the trot was fun! I hadn’t been on the newer route yet, but it went all through downtown Elmhurst. There are a lot of stores and restaurants I didn’t know about! Maybe I should actually hang out in my hometown sometime.

After the Turkey Trot, Scott and I had bloody Marys in the tent and warmed up. I’m not sure if I’m a huge fan of the drink, but once a year is good for me!

My mom threw Thanksgiving this year, so my cousins, their kids, my two uncles, my grandpa, my mom, and my brother all showed up for the occasion. We ate some appetizers and then ate the main meal, which consisted of turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and rolls. Yum! I should make stuffing more often. We also Skyped with my cousin Matt for a bit since he and his wife Jackie live in North Carolina now. They told us big news… they are expecting a baby next year! That’s exciting. It was fun hanging out with my family again!

Also in November, I saw my cousin Sydney in a musical! It was Annie Get Your Gun. I’ve never seen it before, but I really liked it! It was funnier than I thought I would be. The girl who played Annie had a great voice and played the role perfectly. Sydney did a great job, too! Here’s a photo of her:

I love seeing Sydney in all these plays and musicals. I hope she is able to pursue this later in life!

Have a good weekend, everyone.
