6th Annual Rose Family Thanksgiving Day Turkey Run

I took dictations from the family on their experience this year.  I took some liberties with Heather's, seeing as how a. she is asleep right now, and b. she doesn't really, you know, reliably speak in intelligible sentences.

Hallie: It was cold.  And fun.  I ran fast.  And I beat Hanna and Daddy to the coats.  I had two jackets on.  It was the funnest Turkey Run, ever.  Heather rode in a stroller.

Hanna:  I ran faster than Mommy and Heather.  Then Daddy ran with me on his back.

Heather: I just wanted them to take my gloves and jacket off, but no one would.  I cried when mommy tried to put a blanket on me.  I had a lot of fun.

Devin: This was our coldest Turkey Run yet.  Builds character.

Amy: This was definitely our coldest day yet, it was four degrees below freezing with a nasty biting wind. We didn't stay long.  The girls did a mile, with Devin carrying one of them for a lap each.  But it felt good to get out in the fresh air and move our bodies around a little bit.

Here's to next year, maybe we'll be back in shorts like last year!


  1. I was wondering how the run wet this year. Looks like fun!

      I swear this NaNo has made my spelling/spell checking abilities worse.

  2. Wow. That sounds cold. But great job, guys! :)

  3. Love these! Wish I had been there. PS. you look great Amy!
