Every Thanksgiving, our tradition is the same. We gather up a group of amazing friends who come and play flag football at 8:00am for our annual Turkey Bowl.
This year, was not quite as cold as past years.
But it was still pretty cold.
Nonetheless, it didn’t stop these awesome people from getting in a few good games of football.
We prayed at the end to thank Jesus for a fun and injury-free morning.
And then I gathered some friends for a few quick pictures, because that is what I love to do.
In a fun turn of events, this year we played not one, but two Turkey Bowls. Our Pastor’s family is in town and so we set up to play another few rounds of football with them and it was pretty awesome.
This picture made me smile because our pastor’s son did an awesome job playing with everyone…
And it reminded me that not that long ago, our son was about his age and playing in his first Turkey Bowls as well. Time really does fly.
I didn’t get the chance to get as many pictures of the second game because I got to hang out with some of the little ones whose parents were playing but nonetheless, I made sure to get a group picture of most everyone who played in that game too.
And that was how we celebrated our Thanksgiving morning. I hope you all had an awesome Thanksgiving! This day is always one of my favorites because gratitude is a huge part of what brings me so much joy in life. This year, as in years past, I really do have so much to be thankful for and I want to always remember that gratitude comes in the big things and in the little things as well. That being said, a huge thanks to everyone who joined us for our two Turkey Bowls and I hope you all had a safe and awesome Thanksgiving!
