It’s the last day of November – a month that flew by so quickly, I barely had time to say hello before it rushed out the door!
We had a great Thanksgiving weekend. It’s always nice for us because the Fall season of DWTS ends right before Thanksgiving, giving Mr. M a long weekend before he starts work on the new season of The Bachelor! 🙂
We had a beautiful Thanksgiving Day over at our friends’ house! My friend, Samantha, made the most amazing Thanksgiving Feast – oh my word, I was in heaven. I keep telling her to start a cooking blog, because I know it would be a huge hit. Every dish was more delicious than the last – and she even gave us leftovers…amazing!
Me and Sam on Thanksgiving:
The girls had so much fun playing with their friends:
Playing an educational science game on BrainPop after playing outside in the backyard for hours! What can I say, learning never stops for these homeschoolers – ha!
Ginger is obsessed with the guitar! It’s all she talks about and she wants a guitar SO badly for Christmas. We’ll have to wait and see if Santa brings her one. Ginger’s friend helped her learn a few things on her guitar after dinner:
Ginger could have played all night long!
I do miss the beautiful snow and cool temps of the Midwest this time of year. Seeing pictures of snow makes me so nostalgic.
But, we are very lucky to have amazing weather here in California. The girls played outside in the bounce house for most of the day. Can you say awesome?!
This was Miss Ellie’s very first Thanksgiving. I am so thankful for her:
She played a little, and then had a nice long nap. Sounds like a great Thanksgiving to me!
I am thankful for so many things – I’m not going to make a list here because it would be a thousand pages long (at least).
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and were able to enjoy it in the company of people you care about. This was my 15th Thanksgiving I’ve spent in California with Mr. M – it’s amazing to me that it’s been that long since I’ve been back home to Indiana for Thanksgiving. In a way, California has become my home – and it’s about time I started accepting that. This year, I let go of expectations that Thanksgiving would be similar to what it used to be like (back at my Grandma’s house) – and decided to just stay in the moment and enjoy this holiday for what it is now.
And you know what? It worked! It was a beautiful day, full of happy moments that are now exquisitely happy memories. Who could wish for more? I’m a thankful woman…
