Well, it’s time again to link up with Katie for a little Marvelous in My Monday! Anything to make Monday a little better right??
Saturday was such a marvelous day! I slept in a little longer than I wanted though. I was hoping to get up in time to enjoy a nice long run, but it just didn’t happen. But all wasn’t lost! I pulled out The Fitnessista’s Holiday HIIT workout and the Six Pack in a Sweater ab burner. The HIIT workout had me practically gasping for air, and the ab burner seriously burned!

Soon after that, I needed food. I toasted my very last pumpkin spiced bagel, half with almond butter and half with pumpkin butter.

Sad to see these go! 😦

Chad and I spent the rest of the morning doing Christmasy things, like putting up the tree!

…and decorating the inside of our house!

Then it was time to head to my granddad’s for another Thanksgiving celebration with my immediate family on my mom’s side. I tried to keep my phone away so that I could spend time with family, but I did give it to Chad when we all went outside to take pictures!

Look, all the cousins!

Being silly….

We also recreated this picture from Thanksgiving 2008. I’d say we did pretty good! Here’s a better look at the recreated picture.

We spent the majority of the afternoon and evening there and then came back home around 6:30 to crash. I think I was in bed by 7:30 that night. 🙂

Sunday was marvelous as well but much more low key. We started the morning out at church. I made a simple potato soup for lunch, and then we relaxed for the afternoon until it was church time again. We had another bonfire for our youth, this time with a hayride, which was so much fun! I couldn’t get any good pictures because it was dark, but I did get the shot of everyone trying to cook their hotdog at the same time. hah!

Well friends, I hope your Thanksgiving break/weekend/day was just a marvelous as mine! I guess it’s back to my normal schedule for the next 4 weeks, and then the Christmas craziness begins!!
