And that would be a wrap on November <3


The end of the Thanksgiving-palooza.

The end of November.

The end of my computer as we knew it…and the hope that the marvelous Geek Squad at Best Buy can keep the old girl running long enough to transfer all my words and photos onto the new one.

The end of the hope that I was going to get a November newsletter pulled together and sent out to you email subscribers over the weekend.

And new beginnings of December ! Yes!! Let’s get this Journey to Christmas started tomorrow with a new countdown. Hoping you will join me on a very special 25 days of Christmas look at a very non traditional holiday walk through 1 and 2 Thessalonians.

We start tomorrow so I really hope you will join me for a sweet little get away during this month and find encouragement with me in the teachings of these two short books <3

But before we leave November behind, here is a recap of our festivities:


A friend posted a super cute fruit kabob turkey on her Facebook page and we took on the challenge.

I knew ours would take on a whole new level of freestyle art. They had fun, we ate fruit til it ran out our ears and no one got hurt so….a good time was had by all.


I made these Pumpkin Crock Pot Cinnamon rolls for the second time and they were delicious and easy.

So here is the recipe. There is a typo of 12 tsp of Baking Soda which would be so awful so I tried to correct with some fancy editing…enjoy

I THINK this is a link to same recipe…https://www.bhg.com/recipe/slow-cooker-pumpkin-cinnamon-rolls/

Our little family of six joined us for brunch on Thanksgiving day and we actually got a picture with all four kiddos and us facing the camera and smiling.


So much fun and then they headed off to Zach’s family celebration and we rested before having our Covid Buddy friends for dinner.

No pictures, but it was so good…we opted for beef tenderloin this year and let me tell you…I didn’t miss the turkey carcass clean up one bit.

We did, however, manage to overeat … because some traditions are necessary to mark the holiday.

On Saturday we took a good hike at one of the local parks with some friends and it was so beautiful and sunny…again no pictures…take my word for it.

Being outdoors in the last mild days of this season were good for the soul so we talked this party of six into another hike on Sunday…


They were still long enough for me to snap a picture but this was more how it went down…


and as we were saying our goodbyes, Little Miss Thing said we needed a picture of the “girls”…


Best. Day. Ever.

See you tomorrow for the Countdown 2020 style!!!
