Thanksgiving Birthday Fun

We just got home from the Thanksgiving Races – a race that has been an annual event in Guelph since 1894!  Us Loarings have participated in the races for the past four years.  Annika and I ran the 100m and 5km respectively.  Lots of fun (except for my very out-of-shape, painful running).

Thanksgiving dinner with nana and papa yesterday was very yummy!  Annika woke up to some presents in the morning, and then more presents at nana and papa’s house Smile  She’s a very fortunate little girl to have such amazing family!  She’s growing up learning to be very appreciative of everything she has.  We have such a sweet little 4-year-old!
