Thanksgiving was relaxed this year. It was simple. It was family. It was lots of food. It was football. It was board games. It was at home. And it was great.
The morning dawned with two of my boys dressing in layers and doing some serious stretching. It was go-time for the Charlotte Turkey Trot! Grady Lee has spent the past few weeks running a handful of miles every few days with Grady to help prepare for his first 5K. On more than one occasion after a run, Grady would mutter under his breath that it won't be long before Grady Lee outpaces him and laps him on the running track. My little man has some endurance and muscle buried somewhere in that skinny frame of his.
With what seemed like barely enough time, we wandered from the start line to stake out a spot at the finish line... and in a matter of minutes my two boys were running past! Both were smiling and running hard to cross the line strong.
And now we're well into the Christmas spirit. And the countdown until #4 arrives. And the countdown until a certain little boy turns a big, whopping six years old. So much happening - all in the next four weeks!
