Turkey Day 2011

This year the Thanksgiving holiday included a week off of school for the kids - so we had a whole week to celebrate my favorite holiday of the year. We spent the week counting our blessings and making new memories at our favorite place - Black Butte Ranch.

The older cousins set out one afternoon with the goal of hiking to the summit of Black Butt

But snow got the better of their attempt. But there were still plenty of smiles and a renewed goal to try it again in summertime!

The story of Thanksgiving dinner proves us genius! Grammy reserved a private dining room at the lodge and we let the Lodge restaurant do the cooking for our large group! It was delicious, relaxing and no dishes!! It might be a new tradition.

But just so that we didn't miss the whole "Thanksgiving experience" and so that we had lots of cold turkey to snack on throughout the weekend, Grammy still roasted this beauty!

The fun continues...

We had a
fun family time at the ranch's Turkey Trot. Bart was a trooper and did the kids trot with the boys while I ran the 5K.

And enjoyed the Sister's Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony

And the Sister's Thanksgiving weekend Parade.

Santa rode in on the last wagon to kick of the Christmas season!

Our blessings are countless and we have so much to be grateful for - a now another fun holiday to add to the list!
