Hmm let’s see… November… AMERICAN Thanksgiving, a visit from Nana and Baba, full on fall weather, school, the beginning of the Christmas countdown. Because Nana and Baba were there in the right time frame we also saw Santa which you can read about in a previous post.
Thanksgiving was a lot of fun. Not only did Nana and Baba take over the cooking and make a full on turkey dinner BUT the Novaks also joined us! The kids were beyond excited to have the 4 boys over and we adults had a great visit.
Ken and I snuck off after Thanksgiving for basically a second honeymoon. For the first time in over 12 years we went out overnight WITHOUT kids. We went to a B and B that Karyn and I had visited previously in Wisconsin (different room). We hung out in our awesome room.
Went out for a delicious dinner at an old mill.
Shopped at an amazing yarn place.
AND drove out of our way to an even more amazing wool place.
We even stopped in at a brewery for a tasting for Ken.
And visited the capital building.
It was AMAZING.
The weather went from sundresses and sunshine to snow and snowboots.
We spent plenty of quality time at the YMCA.
And Ken and I went to an open house at Shandai and Ravyn’s new digs.
Crocheted in spare moments.
The girls had their nails done by Nana.
And the twins pitched in with some baking.
And watched our local black squirrel run our yard like a boss.
Can you believe we even found time for schooling.
And a visit with the Schwartz family!
A trip to IKEA had us well lit and the girls in new beds.
November went by in a blink of an eye. But it was a fun blink!
