November Recap and a look into the FUTURE!

Tuesday, December 1, 2015

November went by in a flash. I can't believe it's over and it makes me a little sad how time flew right on by. November was kinda wild and we had a lot going on as a family.

I turned 29.
My baby turned TWO!
My husband had an amazing job interview come up.
We celebrated a small thanksgiving. 
Also, my hubby went out of town a total of 3 times and I had strep throat twice.



Eventful as always. I am really happy to say that the job interview went fantastically, and pending a few more things it looks like we will end up taking this job and moving. I'm excited for the new start. And also I feel like God has totally had His hand in all the details of this job search. We have had several opportunities pop up, and none of them worked out in timing/pay or whatever and this one really seems to be where we are led. The most exciting part of all of this, is that for the first time in 8 years I will live in the same town as my mama and daddy. Sunday dinners? Yes, please! So if you feel moved, please continue to pray for the final pieces to fall into place.

how sweet is this snowman I painted?! I love how he turned out.
Life size Lincoln Logs. He is a little excited! lol

He CLIMBED onto the counter to sneak candy y'all. So cute and so naughty. :)

December is a month I really like to move slowly. I want to soak in the goodness December brings. I am almost finished with all of my shopping and that makes my heart SO stinkin' happy. I don't really have a lot I want to get accomplished but just a few things I want to focus on.

~ advent calendar, and scripture readings. Obviously my kiddos are little, we worked on this last year and it didn't always get finished, but I'm going to keep trying. We use Unwrapping the Greatest Gift.
~light Christmas decorating, It gets to be WAY too much If i overdo it with decor. I'm keeping it really simple this year.
~working out. I need to work out everyday, even if its just 30 minutes. ya know... Christmas cookies!
~Baking. My kids love this part of Christmas so I want to commit to making their special cookie or treat.

Hooray for December!
