In November, my mom took some new family pictures of me and my girls. They turned out so cute. Hadlee was less than thrilled to help out with smiling and such nonsense, but we got some good pictures anyway. Here are a billion of my favorite.
It was election year, and yes, I voted. Wish the outcome had been different, but here's hoping some good comes out of the next four years.
Sean and I went to the final installment of the Twilight Saga on pre-opening night, which was the 15th. I loved it. He tolerated it because he loves me. But we had a good time!
The girls were with Hunter on Thanksgiving, so Sean and I spent Thanksgiving with his parents. We hosted at Sean's house and cooked a delicious meal. Sean outdid himself with the turkey/stuffing. It was amazing. Just thinking about it now is making me want to eat it again! Before we stuffed ourselves, we went and saw the new James Bond movie, Skyfall. And I have to admit, I actually liked it. I didn't think I would, but I did.
Sean and I started our Black Friday shopping on Thanksgiving evening. I'm not proud of that fact, but it happened. Something I needed was on sale at 8pm, so we went and waited in line. We shopped a long time. Sean had to get to bed for work the next morning, but I shopped basically all night long. I got a nap or two in, but it wasn't enough rest. However, it is one of my favorite days of the year, so it was worth it. And I'm grateful it only comes once a year!!
On the 29th, we did our gingerbread house making FHE with Sean at his house. It is one of our Christmas traditions, but with the way the dates fell this year, we had to start in November! The girls loved it and tried to eat the candies faster than we could use them. Here are some pictures.
