well it's been an eventful month with it's ups and it's downs, but now that it's all over, i can truly say that the ups certainly outweighed the downs.
The highlight of the month (and maybe the year) most definitely being at the sealing of my sweet niece, Coco.
After two years of anxiously waiting and waiting for the adoption papers to be finalized, we can now finally call her OURS (read more about the adoption here)!
It was so sweet to be in the temple with my family and hear the tender words of the sealer about families, our lives in heaven and our lives together here on earth, God has a plan for each of us and sometimes families come together in less conventional ways, but they always come together just right. I'm so grateful for family and the opportunity we have to make it forever.
To celebrate Coco's "Baby Wedding" as Reachel liked to call it, she threw the cutest carnival themed party I have ever seen. There were Italian sodas, cotton candy machines, homemade pretzels, caramel apples, live music, and a photo-booth. It was so much fun! I wish you all could have been there, truly!
I continued to celebrate my birthday until the VERY last day of the month, with my free birthday meal from Benihana, topped off with strawberry Haagen-Daz ice-cream,
And a couples massage (a gift from Marcus) to wipe away the stress of the month. Can I please have one of these weekly? SO RELAXING!
We're still working like mad on the house and still spending more time than I ever thought possible at The Home Depot. I came home from a long day working Black Friday and all my brother in laws were tearing walls down in my kitchen. It was so nice of them!
Bought a 1960s couch, found some treasures at a patio sell, and got a key made for the new place :)
Babysat this little dude a few times and fell in love all over again!
Can I have him please?
Not only do they have adorable kids that I love to babysit, but their house is a piece of art!
Spent time with the Nielson in-laws and my horse shirt really liked Stephanie's mouse shirt, so we let them cuddle on the couch after thanksgiving dinner.
Speaking of Thanksgiving Dinner, did you eat way too much like I did?
Then go to your second families house immediately after and have to eat again?
If that's not a #firstworldpain, I don't know what is...
I hope your November was simply lovely, and I hope your December will be even better!
Can you tell me your November highlights?
