Gathering The Moments - November

November flew by as we had so much to anticipate with Thanksgiving guests and our Emma home from school!  Here are just a few snippets from our month.

 We put the flannel sheets on the beds, I made simmering potpourri and it has been delightful to smell in our house, and I finally got my Friendly Village dishes!

 I did a few holiday preparations that would last through Christmas (clove studded oranges) and we set a pretty table for Thanksgiving.

 Family gathered to share the day!

We went to a beloved Aunt's funeral, Rachel cut 10 inches off her hair, we've managed to do school, Christmas shop, enjoy our family.

I'm excited about Christmas, but for one day more I'll savor November and its moments.  We have so much to be thankful for!
