It's not officially winter just yet but I know it's coming because our house has transformed for Christmas & everyday the overcast skies look more like snow than rain.
But before we jump into the holidays there were a few things from November that need to be documented - specifically Kevin's birthday & Thanksgiving.
We went back and forth with having a big todo for Kevin's birthday & combining it with a bit of a housewarming party but that kinda overwhelmed me so we did this instead. Went out to dinner at the restaurant we both use to work at. The restaurant we met at :) The same restaurant I met my best friends for life at - it was only fitting we met her and her husband there. I will always remember the day Kevin walked in with his application. Mary immediately said "you like him, he looks like a man" haha. yup. I do like him.
Onto Thanksgiving. This was the crew. Aunts & Uncles, Cousins and kids. 18 in total. Food was delicious & thankfully the weather held out so we could take family bike rides and rides in the fancy car. Was a lovely day but it made me miss my family.
I believe that takes us up to now. Our elf came back - bringing Christmas jammies to start the season off with instead of just having them on Christmas eve. I swear our elf gets smarter every year. We are planning to go see Santa this weekend which means we need to get Christmas lists done... I don't know if you can read it (I made Reagan write everything on her own sounding it out) her list reads
Own real phone
I had to talk her out of writing Own real car. lol. This girl. Convinced her Crayons would be more fitting. No more baby dolls on her list - mrrrr :/
I leave you with a pic of this beauty. She is such a good baby. She literally wakes up this happy everyday.
