My brother, Aaron and I ran in a Thanksgiving morning 5k. We were supposed to run with my cousins, but there were over 1,200 people running and we couldn't ever find them until the race was over. Bummer! Here are some pics from the race.
My favorite cheerleader!
Grandma keeping Adalyn warm. We had quite a loud cheering section. Leave it to my family...
At the start of the race. Smiling and still running together. (Ignore all the Michigan colors. Gag! The Ohio State/Michigan game was that weekend and so everyone was dressed for their favorite teams. J told me I couldn't wear Ohio State colors - the team I grew up cheering for. So I was rocking my UK t-shirt. Hey UK actually won their game this weekend!)
At the end of the race. Can almost see the finish line...
My brother kicked my booty by a few minutes!
We found my cousins after the race! We were glad we ran it = extra turkey! And we all four finished without walking at all! Yay!
My first race to run with my brother. Maybe this will become a yearly tradition! I'll need to work on my pace time! :)
Adalyn cuddling with Uncle Aaron after Thanksgiving dinner.
Papa giving a horse-y ride!
Adalyn with my brother, Brian. This is the first time she's met him. (Other than briefly last Christmas for about 5 minutes.)

I'm pretty sure the last picture like this from when we were all together was when I was in college. (I graduated almost 9 years ago...)
Adalyn enjoyed my grandpa's toddler rocker. How sweet! She learned how to get off but then not back on so we'd have to help her. She loved rocking.
Dressed in matching clothes to Grandma!
I think Adalyn has been watching Mommy a little too much. She knows exactly what to do with that phone.
We didn't go crazy for Black Friday. We did go out in the afternoon to catch a couple store sales. On our way home, I spotted the best Black Friday deal ever. A FREE treadmill on the side of the road with a sign that said "It works". WHA?? I'd rather run outside, but with this time change I just don't have time to run in the daylight anymore, but buying a treadmill would never have been in the budget. It's not fancy at all, but it works, folks! It collapsed and fit in our car! I don't have any excuses now...
Adalyn enjoyed the garden tub. Splash!!
Grandma and Papa. It's always so good to spend time with them!
We had a great long weekend although we are still recovering from it. Our drive home was much less traumatic. It may be in part to the car DVD player that Jonathan got at Target on Saturday for the Black Friday price. It pays to make the clerk check the overnight delivery for stock of items that show "in store" online. Maybe by next weekend my house will be back to normal. I was going to take Monday off to get back to normal, but Billie decided to have her baby so I was at the hospital all day! It was a WAY better way to spend a vacation day than doing housework!! And sweet baby Emalyn was worth every moment!
