Thanksgiving 2012

For Thanksgiving this year we have NO PICTURES! The reason for our lack of photography is because we spent Thanksgiving with fevers and vomit instead of Turkey and Pie! We were supposed to spend the holiday with my sister Becca and her family who recently moved to Chicagoland, but when Lily's fever was carrying on at 104 degrees for the 5th day, we called and cancelled in hopes of sparing the Rigg family our germs.

Thanksgiving day came and Kevin and I attempted a poor man's turkey trot in the morning. We wrapped the girls up tight in their stroller (hoping the cold air might bring down Lily's fever) and started to run. I made it about 2 miles before an injured hip had me hobbling home, but Kevin got his wiggles out by running the stroller up and down giant hills as fast as he could to make the girls giggle! We also tried to celebrate somewhat by making chicken rolls and gravy, mashed potatoes, and green beans. The girls, who were both still sick, managed to push their food around their plate a bit before heading off to bed, but Kevin and I enjoyed the grub :)

A few days later the fevers subsided so we packed up our bags and headed to Geneva to hang our with the Riggs! We played and played, shopped till we dropped, and ate pounds and pounds of delicious food! It was so much fun to spend the holiday with family! Its been a really long time since we could do that :)
