Thanksgiving turkey trot with custom t-shirts on the silhouette


Last month, I gave you a preview to show you what I was working on and gave you a sneak peek at this little onesie.


For the past five years, I have been starting my morning running in a local Turkey Trot 5k.  The kids started joining me the past few years, and thankfully, we have a very active family, so I thought it would be fun to start an annual Teodoro Turkey Trot fun run 5k.

I used the silhouette machine to bust out 24 t-shirts in various sizes from newborn to adults XL.  Because really, what's a race without a t-shirt?

This is the whole gang before the run.  We had a few out of town cousins, and several sickies, but I was pleased with the turnout and we had such a great time.  The rain even held off until literally minutes after the finish of the "race".


I was able to score some free racing bibs from a local race organization to make our run seem just a bit more official.


All lined up at the start line ready to run!

Most impressive participant of the day goes to this new family of three.  Just two weeks after having their first baby, Brett and Kate showed up with their sweet babe Trevi.


Isn't she sweet?!


Grandpa and Isabella ran their 2nd 5k together and it's fun to see them enjoy the sport of running together.


My oldest son finished first and was a bit exhausted after his efforts!


My youngest son ran almost a mile of it, before making the transition to his bike.  Here we are running towards the finish.


The winner!





Such a fun family tradition that I am excited to continue for years to come.  What are your Thanksgiving traditions?
