Try It Tuesday...Thanksgiving Traditions

2012 Thanksgiving morning
I love traditions and moving to Houston 4 years ago we have started some of our own for the holidays. For the past three years, we have woke up at the crack of dawn on Thanksgiving morning to run 3.1 miles. The first year I threw this on the kids at the last minute and they complained about it from the time I pulled them out of their warm beds until we started the race. Last years run went a little smoother but man was it cold. This year I gave them the option of running the 1 mile fun run/walk and was surprised when they both said 5k all the way. Yippee!

We also made the decision that turkey is really dry and steak is so much tastier!  Here's our turkey day  menu- filets, twiced baked potatoes (this is something new we're trying), green beans & rolls. Sounds good & easy right? Don't worry, I do make a pumpkin pie to keep with our childhood tradition and this year I'm also making apple crisp for the kiddos.

You won't find us shopping tomorrow night but you will find us ending the night viewing Christmas Vacation...who doesn't love watching Clark Griswold and Cousin Eddie? This is a tradition we've had for years and one that will never die.

 I'm taking the rest of the week off from the blog but you can follow me on Instagram if you want to see what we're up to! Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and would love to know your family traditions.
