So I'm here to update you.
Thanksgiving was great! It was lovely to see family, have the kids see family, eat a mindful but still indulgent meal, and go on a weekend get away with the love of my life.

Our anniversary was wonderful, and I can't believe it's been 6 years (but on the other hand, how has it only been 6?).
St Nicholas came!
The kids saw santa.
We made gingerbread houses as a family!
Nothing too fancy, but the following weekend we partied it up at my husband company's district meeting and Christmas party. It's always like an extension of my birthday because it's around that time every year. They treat the wives nice for a day and I got a catered lunch and a painting party (the kind with food and drinks). Then he was recognized for 5 years with the company, we had dinner and (way too many) drinks. I did not feel good the next morning. I will just be honest. I rarely imbibe and there were many contributing factors to this particular evening. Anyways, just being honest. Life has dealt us a pile of poop lately, it seems, but everyone in this family is trying to be happy and positive for the amazing things we do have!

While she was here I also utilized a morning to go to the orthopedic doctor because of my on going ab and hip issues.
So onto that story. See next blog.
