Now...a few random photos of our life the past few weeks...
October became November!!!!
We said goodbye the jack-o-lantern dresses, and hello to the pumpkin dresses.
Our backyard looks like this now.
As much as I love October and Halloween, I have a special spot for the bare trees, crisp wind, and early evenings that November brings. It is almost like an intermission between the Halloween fun and the Christmas joy. We snuggle in earlier in the evenings. We slow down and do less. We plan for a turkey dinner to come, and we begin to organize ideas in our heads for surprises for our loved ones.
November is cozy in the schoolroom...
And full of fun science activities with pumpkins and cranberries!
Just a random photo of my precious little shadow
One of my very favorite things to do in November is switch out Flynn's pajamas from Halloween to Christmas. I do this early because they are just too darn cute and cozy to wear only one month!
During the colder months when we don't go out as much, Flynn basically lives in pajamas. I love the jammies from Gymboree. They are very soft and cozy and fit true to size. They also wash up well.
Another place I like to order from is Carters. I know I am almost done with these precious stores that have been a part of my life for over 20 years, so I am soaking it all in.
Look who is home!!!!!!!
My Madison was planning on coming with Nicolas in a few weeks, but when she heard about Mum, she wanted to come home. And Nicolas made it happen. We are blessed.
And lastly, I came across this beautiful photo of Steve's Mum when she was young.
If you closely at her beautiful face, you might see a resemblance to someone else you know.
I will give you a hint...Mum is holding a plate of cupcakes. ; )
Have a cozy weekend, my friends.
Thank you for visiting!!!
