In a season of Thanks...

November went all too fast and soon I know Christmas is approaching.  We had a great trip to and furious but fun and festive as well.  The kids are excited to get a tree and get this party started!  

hello smores pie..Aly made this for Thanksgiving dessert...and it was a hit!

I got the chance to climb the mountain with my kids this year as it was super cold...but it made the trip faster and enjoyable to move right up...we could see Boston since the day was so clear!

Aly got some much needed girl time with Aunt Brooke...hopefully she will not think this is happening at our house regularly.

The Annual Thanksgiving Driveway race happened again....I think Uncle Barry took the  overall win!

This was what Aly thought of this race...NOT INTERESTED

Making my way back

After IMLP, I had grand plans to run all fall...not really long but lots of running.  Apparently, life had other plans.  With kids in swim team, changing jobs, and getting hurt there was not a ton room for running.  For the past two weeks, I have been back at it and it is GREAT!

The best part of running more of course is running with friends.  It was so nice to catch up with these ladies...and share smoothies and goodies afterwards!

Being Thankful

Somehow November has escaped me...between the swim team, wrapping up fall training programs, and activities it seems that we are always on the go.

Hopefully over then next few weeks things will slow down a little and we can catch our breath.  The fall weather has been amazing here and we have been taking advantage of great weather and outdoor fun.

Tomorrow we are having Thanksgiving lunch at preschool...we have spent many dinners talking about being thankful.  Brianna declares she is going to save all animals...she also announced she was getting a guinea pig from Santa...hopefully she changes her mind before December.  

We are certainly thankful for having three little ones keep us entertained.

Where has November GONE?

All of the sudden it is the middle of November...WHHHAATTTT???

We have been tearing it up in honor of Brianna's 6th birthday!  She had a blast...a party at the zoo and a small trip to Great Wolf Lodge made her week complete.

 I got away for a brief weekend with was nice to drink coffee and be able to get up after 9

We traveled to the house that carved 191 fun to see all the different ones

We rang in Halloween with our dear friends while keeping their son in our thoughts
