days 24, 25 and 26

Well due to some early black Friday shopping (which my husband was a trooper for following me, my sisters, my mom, my aunt and my cousins around-Kyle was there too) and a late football game last night, I haven’t had a chance to blog my last few days yet so I thought I would combine the 3 days into one.  First off I want to start  by saying that we had a great Thanksgiving. One tradition that we have is our Annual Allen Family Turkey Bowl. (Ha sounds WAY more official when I put it in words!) We just go to the park around the corner from my parents house, divide up into teams and play some flag football. Nothing fancy but so much fun. I love holidays for many reasons, and the fact that they bring families together and take us outside in the fresh air, is one of them. We weren’t the only family outside playing together and it is so good to see that! I just love Thanksgiving. I think one of my new year resolutions may be to remember (more often) to be grateful, all throughout the year! Days 24, 25 and 26.
