This, That, and Everything in Between- November 2017
Another month has passed by and we are that much closer with each passing day to Christmas, New Year’s Eve, followed by 2018. That just seems so utterly crazy to me!
Why is when you are a kid, it feels like time goes by slowly but as an adult, and as an adult with kids, it flies so freaking fast?! For real?!
Perhaps it is also the fact that lately I feel like a chicken running around with their head cut off. Going in every direction attempting to get something checked off the to do list, circling around to something else and the list just keeps on growing. Ok, I’ll digress!
Today is all about recapping our activities from November! I feel like the month was crazy busy and I don’t have a ton of pictures but here’s what we did…
The very first day of the month began with Miss S turning 4!! She was so excited!
She got to go to school to have her first school birthday party where we took a cookie cake and she got a birthday crown and she did not want to take that off all day long! She made out in the birthday gift department this year too and had a fantastic day.
A few days later we celebrated her birthday again with friends at her Shimmer and Shine party. It was a great day and she loved it, if you can’t tell by the blurry picture of her! lol
The party was fun but I think the girls has just as much fun or more playing in all the draping as we were taking it down from the walls and ceiling.
Miss S got a Snow White wig, her favorite princess, for her birthday so we’ve been living with Snow White on and off ever since. She sure looks cute with all that hair!
On the 7th it was time to celebrate Travis turning another year older! We opened gifts, went out to dinner, and then instead of a cake, had Culver’s concretes for dessert.
Miss P had her first school program on Veteran’s Day. Travis had the day off so we all got to go and enjoy the program.
Travis and I have been lucky enough to go on a lot more date nights recently. We snuck out one evening to dinner, a quick little thrift store shopping, and then went to go see a Christmas play at the local theater.
There were quite a few super busy days and evenings mid month with tons of work and school activities but I was able to sneak in a paint party teaching some of my fellow Army spouses how to paint the Winter Farm. This was such a fun party!
Miss P had Thanksgiving lunch at her school and we were all able to go eat with her. She was so excited we were there!
This is our one and only shot from actually Thanksgiving. We had some of our really good friends over that will soon be moving and we were having such a great time, none of use took any more pictures! The girls were exhausted from playing and the adults had a great time chatting, drinking, and eating.
The day after Thanksgiving I got all my fall decor put away and brought out all of my Christmas decorations instead of going out shopping. Though I must state, I finished shopping and the gifts are already wrapped and it feels so good!! Now to just find the time to fill out Christmas cards!
The month came to an end with much warmer weather than we had all month and we had some gorgeous ORANGE sun rises. The entire sky looked like it was on fire multiple mornings. And for a girl that hates to wake up early enough to see a sun rise, the sky made it worth it!
To round out this month’s recap I’ll share some cute pictures of our fur babies.
Poppy has discovered that we have turned on our in floor heating in our master bathroom and it has become her favorite napping spot. And who can blame her? It is always nice ans cozy in there!
And one more of Patton… he has to be with me all the time. If he can’t sit and cuddle with me he has to be near some how. I was working on making some birthday banners for our good friends and this was where he decided to hang out while I worked on the floor. Comfortable but he kept his watch on me with that one exposed eye.
I’m sure I am missing something to share because it was a very busy month but that is all for now!
Stay tuned for our December activities!
