Thanksgiving - A Little Late!

We went to Phoenix for Thanksgiving this year to be with my Mom's side of the family. Her parents and sister and her kids live out there. We flew out on Wednesday afternoon and came back on Sunday morning. We had a great time hanging out with everyone. Stacy and Janet were both there too. We rented a house again which works out so nice for all of us to hang out and for Cole to be able to keep his normal routine.

Thanksgiving day was started with a Thanksgiving Day Classic run in Peoria, AZ. My mom, Janet, Tony, and I all ran the 10 mile race. We had the coolest weather of the weekend that morning, and we all had a great run. Here are our results:
Tony - 1:12:47 (11th in age group)
Beth - 1:13:50 (5th in age group)
Mom - 1:40:56 (11th in age group)
Janet - 1:40:56 (15th in age group)

Here we all are after the finish!
Later in the day, we went to my cousin, Michael's house for Thanksgiving dinner with his family, my mom's sister and brother, my grandparents, my other cousin...everyone's kids...etc.! There were a lot of people! Cole got to meet his great-grandparents, and everyone got to meet him for the first time. It was also Tony's first time to meet some of them.

Here are some more pictures from the week.

Cole had to take his bath in the kitchen sink because there were no bathtubs in this house...kind of weird, but we managed. Cole gave everyone a show every night! :)
We spent most of the time just hanging out. We went running, shopped at Trader Joe's, had a cookout at the rental house, things like that. We were all just ready for a relaxing weekend, and did just that. We didn't even do any Black Friday shopping!

We did take our Christmas card pictures. These aren't the ones we used, but I wanted to share a few.
