Saying Goodbye to Fall.

Well, November disappeared in a hurry. I still can’t believe how nice the weather has been. We spent as much time as we could outside. Leah and Ava really love the trees we have in back yard. Playing in the giant leaf piles we make is so much fun. With the cold weather coming, there are frozen puddles about and the kids love playing with the ice.

In the last couple of weeks we have made some crafts for Christmas. Pinterest is very inspiring; however, we end up with so many little projects and its hard to decide which ones to keep. The kids and I love stretching our crafting skills as each project brings a new challenge. I love the hand print art the best, watching their little hands grow every year. Time goes by just too quickly.  We started working on a new craft for the grandparents for christmas. I can’t give away too many secrets but there are some pictures of before its completed.

We have been rather under the weather the last couple of weeks, so we have been taking it slower. Leah was so sick that her giant stuffed Nessie suffered a flu explosion and never really smelled the same. It was old and looking rather torn so I made her a new one with a slightly modified pattern. Hopefully this one will last a bit longer.

Our family grew a little bit this month, we got a new dog! His name is Hawk.  He really enjoys playing with the kids and Ginger.

I got a a couple of christmas photos of the girls this week. I can’t believe that December is here! Time to get that Christmas tree up soon!
