It’s the last day of November and as the rain continues to pour down, I am nestled in bed trying to relax and get this mild flare up under control.
Eva is loving the fall leaves that we piled up for her to play and jump in.
My favorite purchase of November is the Kathleen lights x morphe palette. 😊
Had a much needed girls day with my BFF.
Kay enjoyed a few Park days due to how warm it’s been.
Me and hubby revamped our hair which was much needed on both our ends and let me tell u it feels great to finally have my pixie in order.
I am so beyond glad that stores now have way more penguin items in Stock because my obsession is real.
I’m still reading ever so slowly the wedding. Don’t worry I’ll finish it hopefully soon, I’ve just been on a reading blogs addiction instead.
Other than that, I’ve had a sudden kick of enthusiasm to blog, vlog and start my ebook. So even though I am barely reading, I am managing to be way more productive with my time.
I look forward to sharing more of my memories with you all on here and on my youtube.
What’s your favorite memory of November?
No matter how much you plan, things never go as planned. When you have kids it’s like when do things go as planned?
We went to the Halloween store to get some last minute stuff for me and mister officer. Then I had to go to Michael’s to get some paper for an order made. I really got distracted and to top it off the line was long!
So afterwards we planned to just get a quick dinner at McDonald’s but they were severely under staffed so we waited for about 45 minutes. By the time 5:15 pm rolled around I knew we were doomed!
Lily had to get dropped off at her best friends house and Kay was severely constipated to the point she was in agony and tears. So me and him couldn’t get ready nor could we even give out candy or take the boys trick or treating. Our neighborhood sets up a yearly Halloween sort of parade where they line up and all trick or treat together. This year they had started at 5 pm so we pretty much missed it all.
Kay was all better by 8 ish. By that time the boys were done and I’m so glad my niece came and was able to go with them around as me and mister officer dealt with our sick little one.
See how life throws you curve balls without expected. And even though I felt like the night wasn’t what I wanted or how we had planned I’m just glad that when Kay did feel better, she enjoyed her Halloween and loved her bumble bee outfit.
I was still able to pull off my creepy doll look that I had spent the night before looking up how to do this look.
Was I creepy enough?
My zombie officer and the creepy doll duo.
I wasn’t able to capture the others on my phone. But I am glad they had fun and can still wear their costumes to play.
Hopefully next Halloween we can actually all go around and have it not be so late or a disaster. But that’s life. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Hope you all had a happy halloween.
Sunday was the start to our church’s vacation bible school week! The theme is Mount Everest and we actually volunteered and went 1 day two weeks ago and helped decorate for it, which was really nice to have been able to do.
We gathered before it started and held a beautiful but simple picnic. Kay ran around and played with their out doors toys. The kids ate a few hot dogs but kept to themselves and didn’t mingle much because they were pretty hot.
Then, I got their name tags and bandanas. Lily is in the red group, Branden in the green and Ethan in the yellow. We sat and watched the start of it all. I really love how miss Kelly (the pastors wife) incorporates sign language when getting the kids involved in the songs and learning the songs. I enjoy it so much and hope to learn more sign language this coming year, it will be in my to do list!
As they parted ways into their sections and learning, me and Steven headed off to target to get some much needed start off to our school supplies shopping. Buying for three children is not easy, so the sooner we get it done the better.
When we picked them up, their excitement was very evident. They love it and I am so glad they do! Not only are they getting out of the house and doing something good and productive with their time by learning about the bible and also crafting and being with other children.
I think it’s very important to instill in a child the bible. It is a part of our soul that we need to feed and I know as they grow older, that me taking them to church and letting them know about God that it will have a lasting effect on them and their well being and how they turn out as adults.
Once the week is over I will do a small recap of their week!
