Thanksgiving Feast

We started the day nice & early by first moving out of the hotel Vic's been living in for 2 1/2 months & then going to Idaho Fall's "Feed the Hungry" run. It was 1 degree! Here is me, Katie, & Nele (our Belgian friend) before the race.. oh ya, & the turkey!
And here we are about 6 minutes into the "race"... freezing our face off & trying to figure out how to cover up more! I was hoping to get the giant snow drifts & ice covered path in the picture, but this is what you get when you take the picture yourself! haha!
And here is our group, all smiles after the race & some hot chocolate. Everyone did a 5K, but Evan our step brother did his first 10K and Mark, our step-dad did the 1 mile walk with the turkey... You gotta love the turkey runner! haha!
In a circle from the turkey is: me, Katie, stepdad, Amber(stepsis), Nele(friend), Evan(stepbro), & Mom
After the race & Tommy's nap we went to my Dad's house for Thanksgiving lunch/feast. Vic was tickled pink cuz Lana made his banana cream pie that he thinks he needs every holiday. After dinner Tommy entertained them with his drum skills & scooter skills :)
Then we went back to Mom's for Thanksgiving dinner/feast #2! Here is the table all decked out before dinner.
And here is a close up of our cutel little turkeys at everyone's setting:
Katie invented her own pie this year, s'more. It was super rich & tasked just like one, but with the layer of chocolate we had a hard time digging into it! Vic took a picture of us both trying to break it up!

We were all supposed to do a pie so I did a carmel apple cream one that was SUPER delicious. It tasted like you were eating a carmel apple! It was a new recipe I saw in a magazine & will definitely make again. Katie's smore pie,.... and mom's.... um Cheesecake factory pie! haha. We told her we only wanted a picture of the homemade pies, but she wanted to be included in the picture. This way we'll remember she didn't make pumpkin pie like she was supposed to! haha! Not really, I just like to tease her cuz everyone thought someone else was doing the pumpkin pie so we didn't end up eating one this year. :)
It was a super busy day, but so fun.... topped off with a wintry 3 1/2 hour drive home on the bad roads cuz Vic had to work at 5am for Black Friday! ....which I always love that day cuz I got all my shopping done & most of it wrapped :) I can't wait to finish getting all the Christmas stuff out tomorrow.

You are so cute Nancy. I thought about doing the same Turkey Trot, but decided against it. I'm glad! It looks way to cold. It's fun to hear you have a little girl on the way. I'm jealous!
