November 2019

I'm almost there!!! Only 1 more recap after this and then I promise I'll blog about other things!

November kicked off in full force with a youth conference at our church. We were a host home for 6th grade girls! They had the conference at the church and then had groups break up by grade and gender and stay at homes of families in the church, instead of going away for a conference. This allowed more kids to participate because it was cheaper and they could stay in town! So they slept at our house and ate some of their meals at our house. It was so much fun and we had the SWEETEST group of girls and their leaders! We loved getting to know them all! I loved having such a tangible way to serve as a family.
My mom came into town a few days after that, and we had a fun long weekend with her. 
We did a girls movie day while the boys were at school one afternoon.
The next day we went to the children's museum, and my mom got us a membership for the year as our Christmas gift! 
After the museum, we went out to a hibachi restaurant. The boys had never been and the girls went once when they were really little (and hated it!), so I was excited to see what they thought. Besides one kid not liking the food, they all loved it! The boys LOVE to cook, so they ooohed and ahhhed over the grill master and all of his skills and jokes. It was a lot of fun! 
The boys had their first "homework" which was adorable and their answers were so sweet.

My middle caught a snowflake on her tongue, which is notable because apparently this is something she has always wanted to do (so cute)!
We started reading Harry Potter with the girls. I've never read them, but my husband loved them as a kid. The girls have been loving reading it with us!
We had a field trip to the fire station.
We had another Brina & Caitie night (we eat pot pie, and then watch a movie with popcorn & m&ms....it's becoming a thing.)
I spent lots of time in the Word, which was so good. I love that my kids started to expect to find me in my room with an open Bible when they wake up!
We spent Thanksgiving day with my husband's extended family for the first time in 10 years! We are usually with my family on Thanksgiving. This picture was so bittersweet....she's going to be too big for this very soon. I love that she still wants to cuddle us and for us to hold her.
My husband made a fun scavenger hunt for the kids, that they thought was the best thing ever!
The scavenger hunt ended with them finding out we were taking them to Sky Zone,which was really the best thing ever! And that was November!
