We ran again this year. It was FREAKING FREEZING...I was SO cranky, but we survived and had fun in the end. We even look half warm here at the end of the race. I'm glad we did it, but it was 75 degrees two days before this and then it was below freezing...Only in Missouri!
This year was different than our last two years hosting Thanksgiving, because I worked in St Louis the two days prior to the holiday. We had 6 people join us for dinner and Grant had to do all the prep work alone! He was a trooper and even ironed the annoying linen tablecloth for me. He brined the turkey ahead, but we had to set the table, clean the house, and cook all the grub after we got home from our race! Needless to say it was a bit hectic...
Olive was banished to the office while we cleaned...isn't she cute when she is begging to be released from jail?
I was horrible about taking pictures - all the food turned out delicious and we again used all the same recipes. This is at the end of the night after dessert when Olive was allowed release from jail to greet everyone by licking them profusely!
