November Events

November was beautiful this year! The month started with a Fall piano recital for my students. I only have girls now that the Nix boys moved, and they all did a great job! I'm so proud of them!!

We have had such great weather this year (unlike last year) so we were able to spend a lot of time outside. These pictures were taken on an afternoon at the Crossley's backyard playing in the leaves. I cannot believe how much fun the kids had with just leaves!! It was a blast! I love the pictures of the girls jumping in the big leaf pile...hilarious!

We spent the week of Thanksgiving in Windsor, CO with Sam and Jill. It was pretty cold, but we still went to a couple of different parks that the girls really enjoyed. Each girl has their favorite "thing" to do at the park...Carli likes to climb & do the monkey bars, Regan likes the swings & things to ride on, and Mollie likes the swings & the curly-slide (ONLY the curly-slide).

It was nice to have Thanksgiving with family. The boys smoked the turkey this year and it was really good. We had a great meal and spent a lot of time with Sam, Jill and Aubrey. We watched movies, let the girls play, relaxed, went shopping (I took Jill "Black Friday" shopping for the first time....I think she's hooked!), went to parks, went shopping some more, and even went out on a date to see the new Harry Potter. It was a nice trip.
Overall report: November sure was fun!!
