Turkey placed in the oven early by Becky. We went out to Cracker Barrel for brunch with the Brubaker's and Dr. Owen. Got back in time to take the turkey out of the oven.
The boys went over to the Owens to burn cardboard and Rob decided to burn his clinic jacket as well. What else do you do on Thanksgiving... Oh and it's 65oF. So nice. Cooper changed into his Illini football clothes and stayed that way the rest of the day.
Dinner was delicious. We all went around the table to tell what we were thankful for and friendship topped the list.
We met the Brubaker's back in 2002. They were attending Palmer Chiropractic college. We both showed up at a new Bible study group and the friends we made from that group are still some of our closest to this day. Pre kids we did a lot of things together. It's a blessing to count these people our friends.
After lunch we headed out to explore some more of Chattanooga. Visited the Chattanooga Choo Choo train (just google it and you'll hear the song that made it famous). Then we went cardboard sledding. Though we all had a blast it was crazy to watch Tucker go down by himself and yell for more at the bottom.
Then we drove up to Lookout Mountain, another civil war battle site and headed home for leftovers. With the boys in bed we once again stayed up late talking.
