And now for November...

Here are some of the events from November...

Kendall grew a mustache for "Movember." I think he was more glad to shave it off than I was!
He took it off in stages so that he could do a Charlie Chaplin stache.
Kendall finished carving yet another beautiful spoon. This one is sturdy because it is an ice cream scoop. It works well!
Rigdon found his thumb. :) We took it away from him, but it was so cute that I had to get a picture first.
Avri started to learn how to do her own hair! haha. She has to figure it out some time. Half of the time she looks like a homeless child, but she is getting better. And I'm proud of her to doing more than just combing it.
When Kendall went on his November campout we had a friend over whose husband was also at the campout. The kids were so cute, all lined up watching Elmo and eating popcorn.
Rigdon gets cuter ever day.
Silly family.
Rigdon is quickly gaining on Sadie. She better start eating better or her little brother will be bigger than her.
As a side note, I just realized that in the last few pictures that I have put on here of Sadie, she doesn't have her glasses on. She does still wear them, but sometimes she doesn't put them on after her nap. We may some day get to a point where she doesn't need them anymore, but that time is not yet.

Kendall and I took a Salsa Dance class together, along with my parents. It was a bit slow-paced for us, but it was a lot of fun. It was in the evening and so the babysitter put the kids to bed at night. One night we came home and this is where Talmage was sleeping. For a few nights we kept finding him in the same place. We had to tell him not to do it anymore, but it was kind of cute.
Thanksgiving was delicious! Always love that. Our tradition has become that we decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. It gives us the whole weekend to get it all done and an extra day of Kendall being home. The kids had so much fun finding places to put all of the Christmas decorations. And this was a nice year that I didn't have to worry about any of the kids pulling things off the tree. We will be back to that again next year, but for this year we had a little break.

If I remember correctly, I took this picture because it was a rare moment when all three of the kids were doing what they were supposed to be doing, and nobody was fighting. When we get ready to go anywhere I always tell the kids to wait by the door when they are ready and they all just happened to listen the first time! It is nice to have the kids getting a little bit older and a little more independent. Though I do miss all of the innocence that comes with little ones.
(Wow, Talmage looks a bit scary in this one!)
