Thanksgiving 2014

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving day! This year we spent Thanksgiving in Little Rock with my family. All day long yesterday Mom, Grammy and I got everything prepped so we could actually enjoy our day instead of spend the day slaving in the kitchen. It's kind of like a 'go big or go home' mentality here and I wouldn't have it any other way! My Mom completely outdoes herself and always pulls off the best holiday festivities. Because of her, holidays feel special, taste amazing, look beautiful and create memories that last forever.
I started my Thanksgiving day off by running in the Chenal Turkey Trot with my parents (check out my pic on Instagram @kara2lou). My cousins, aunt, and uncle were also there and it was fun kicking off the day going for a (chilly) run with everyone. I came back home to shower and get ready for the day then I decided it would be the best Thanksgiving treat ever if I could lay down and take a nap--while the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade was playing in the background. So I did. And it was pure goodness.
Once I woke up from my Thanksgiving coma (before I even had a bite of yummy Thanksgiving food) I came down to help finish up some cooking and enjoy the rest of the day with my family. Mom bought this adorable bib that says "My First Thanksgiving" (you can't see that part in the pics unfortunately) that she plans on using for all of her grand kids. And Campbell is completely obsessed with the traditional Thanksgiving meal not that anyone is surprised. He had sweet potatoes, broccoli casserole, noodles, and dressing. And screamed and wanted more when it was over.....of course.
After we finished dinner we took some family pics, went to my aunt and uncles house for a quick visit (they live about 2 minutes from my parents), put Campbell to bed then watched a movie. It was a really great first Thanksgiving with our little peanut. I wouldn't have wanted this day to go any other way.
I'm so incredibly thankful for my family and so thankful that I got to spend this day with all of them. I'm so blessed. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving too!
