At this point, I must admit that it feels a little overwhelming to try to catch up over a year's worth of family events. But, then I remember how much my kids and I love to look at old posts. I am not a scrapbooker, so this is all I have. I'm iced in today and thought I'd try to keep working toward catching up.
*Also, my phone camera was getting worse and worse at this point, so the picture quality is not great. I have gotten even worse about remembering to use my nice camera too.
November brought some fun times and some more sick times, unfortunately.
Poor Mallory got her first black eye after a run-in with the coffee table:(
I love the choice we made for the living room. It looks great with some of our new furniture.
November also includes American Education Week. One of the fun activities was allowing the kids to dress us as what they want to be when they grow up. Last year, they wanted to be a contractor and a vet. This year, they changed. Will wanted to be an Allergy Doctor, like his Uncle Robbie. Madeline decided to be a librarian, like Mrs. Franques at school. That was perfect for my girl who loves to read!
On Black Friday, we went to Home Depot to get some new Christmas decorations for the new house. The kids wanted to go see Santa and the whole experience cracked me up! Both Will and Madeline refused to sit in his lap. It made for awkward pictures.
