November is always a weird month, with a holiday right in the middle of it . Nonetheless, it was a busy one!
1. At the beginning of the month, my brother got married and it was a fun, quick weekend with the whole family. Having Uncle Chris around to have fun with made it a blast!
2. And that was the weekend of the infamous 5 1/2 hour trip to get to the zoo! We loved the zoo, and the trip will make us laugh someday, but the picture we took at the end of the day at our "rescuer's truck" makes me smile all day!
3. At the local grocery store, there is a wonderful cheese counter that Bubba loves to go to. We try samples of gouda, cheddar, goat cheese. And there is a lovely lady who always loves to comment on how my 2 year old "loves" cheese. (No lady, he's just hungry, it's almost lunch time.....) Each week she talks me into trying a new cheese. My favorite by far has been this expresso-infused gouda. It's amazing. Smile."Earthquake Candy" cake and the craziness to make that cake? Well, that night, Brody was selected to carry the flag in. It was fitting to see his pride after the crazy 3 hours that had lead up to that moment. Breathe.....
Thanksgiving Weekend??? It was a restful time filled with laughter, jokes, and tons of smiles!!
On another note......
A message from my sister blog, R We There Yet Mom. Come on my friends, I KNOW you have some old posts we can feature this month!!! See below:
Wow! December 1st already? I know it is a cliche' but it seems to come around so quickly these days....
Here in the Texas Darling house, we love Christmas. This year, we have taken our time to get all our decorations up, and it has been a fun week seeing the whole house transformed in Christmas Magic.
I am pretty much a homebody for Christmas - there is nothing I would rather do than be in my own home, snuggled by the fireplace this time of year.
However, this is a fantastic time to travel too! It is a great way to see areas of the country (and world) all dressed up for the Holidays!! And we would like to hear about YOUR past Holiday travels!! We would love to hear about your trip to Disney World at Christmas. We want to hear about your ski trip with 25 other family members. Or maybe you snuck away for a cruise...just the 2 of you?? Maybe you have a funny "Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" travel story you'd like to share!
Didn't travel but have some really awesome traditions that you do in your town?? Tell us about those!! We want to know about that amazing Holiday parade that has become a family tradition? Tour of lights? Breakfast with Santa?
Tell us about it!! If you have a past post, all the better (no extra writing!!). What a cool way to relive your Holiday fun AND get featured on this really cool website......
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org - let's get you set up to be featured here this month!!
