Thanksgiving 2014

Happy December 1st! I cannot believe it’s already December, I LOVE this time of year and can’t wait to start decorating for Christmas today. Josh and I snuck away to San Fransisco this weekend. I can’t wait to recap all the fun things we did, but first let’s talk about Thanksgiving.

Thursday after the thankful 13 race I hurried home to get ready. I had to peel the potatoes, make frosting for my cookies, pack the car, and shower. Oh and finish packing and clean the house since we were leaving for our trip early Friday morning. Luckily I had my little helper:)

We headed to Josh’s parents where we had a delicious dinner with just our immediate family. My first plate of many.

After dinner we walked to the park and let the boys run around. It was such a beautiful day in UT.

After singing to my SIL Alisha( her bday was Friday) we had cake and pie. We said our goodbyes and headed to my family for dessert.
All the desserts were  heaven. The boys got to decorate the cookies I made.

We left j there(at my sister Leah’s) for the weekend(more on that later). She has 3 boys and j fits right in. It was a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I have so much to be thankful for. I try to make my morning prayers only prayers of thanks and it helps me so much throughout my day. I’ve felt so blessed lately for family, friends, Josh’s work, health, text and calls of support and love. And of course my readers! You are all so encouraging and supportive. I love the blogging community:)

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
