Super Thanksgiving Weekend!

We had one of our biggest Thanksgiving gatherings here at BJAMS this year.  John and Char stayed the weekend; my parents, brother and Jenn and my grandpa came over for turkey dinner on Sunday.  For the fourth year in a row we ran at the Thanksgiving Day Races in Guelph.  Next year Annika gets to run the 1k!  This year, both girls ran the 100 meter kids dash (Selena didn’t face plant this year!)

All just a warm-up for BJAMS’ Christmas festivities in a couple months!!

Some pics from Char:

Showing off his brand new gold-plated poker cards – and my mom getting prepped for her first ever game of poker!  Turned out to be the most drawn-out, long, 3.5 hour boring game of poker (to them an “epic” game)

We’re laughing because Selena, on her own, ran down the stairs and posed like this a second before the picture was taken
