Life Lately: November

You guys...November...where did it go? I swear I blinked and it was over!

I feel like we didn't do much in November and even if we did, I didn't take any photographic proof...so therefore it never happened :) 

I love, love, love this time of year and all the fun holiday type stuff, but sometimes I find myself having too much fun to document and take photos, which I suppose is a good problem to have...

 We started out the month with a day with our favorite nieces...well at least I did...AJ helped Brandon lay tile in the bathrooms and I got to head to Hobby Lobby with Caitie and the girls :) Fin ended up with a fun Christmas painting project and she so graciously "let me" paint with her. 

She also informed me that it is okay to paint with both sides of the brush...I just love her rebel attitude ;) 


We celebrated Vanessa's birthday with some karaoke...


and unfortunately this is the only photo I have...I ended up taking other videos/pictures on SnapChat and forgot to save/download them :( 


With the temps cooling down we spent a lot of time snuggled up on the couch and in bed with the queen  ;) 


We got to see our sweet baby BOY


We prepped for a fun gender reveal with our families...and I learned that I can fit approximately 10 small balloons and 3 large balloons in my car...not comfortably. 


We got to share our exciting news with our family and friends!! 


We celebrated Friendsgiving...


and played a riveting game of Oregon Trail...although being in charge of reading and enforcing the rules isn't all that fun when everyone else has been enjoying the keg of beer and you are sipping on water ;)


We celebrated Thanksgiving with the family...and we all had fun, despite what it looks like ;)


I used Thanksgiving break to finish up some painting in the nursery...I was in charge of touching up the trim and the closet doors. 

Thanksgiving break mornings were spent a little like this...


It was so nice having a 5-day weekend that AJ and I got to enjoy together. 

For our official monthly date...things got crazy...


Chinese food...


with extra soy sauce...


and decorating for Christmas! 


The tree is my favorite part! 


Ladders and klutzy pregnant women do not go hand in hand...so AJ was on tree topper duty again this year.


I wish we could keep the tree up all year long! 

After getting the house all ready for Christmas we worked on getting the nursery painted...


Again, no ladders for this girl...which I didn't mind ONE bit! 


I got the majority of our Christmas shopping done on Cyber Monday this year...and let me tell you it was the BEST decision I have ever made! 

Time just went by too fast in November...and I am hoping things slow down in December, but I highly doubt it! It's my favorite time of the year and it always goes by way too fast! I suppose what they say is true...time flies when you're having fun :)
