Monthly Wellness- November

 Hey loves. Happy last day of November. I am ending the month talking about wellness and taking a look back on the last 11 months. I have been looking at goals I made at the beginning of the year, what I stuck with and what I didn't. Looking at my struggles, my successes, growth, and victories. Nobody says you have to wait until the end of the year, or beginning of the new year to take a look back and make changes. 

Thanksgiving Recap with a North Pole Breakfast

Hey loves. Happy Monday!!!. How was your Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and long weekend? We had a somewhat relaxed, family filled, productive week. Ella and Austin only had school on Monday. Anna had school on Tuesday. Brian and I had conferences with his teacher on Tuesday. We had no big plans besides Thanksgiving dinner, dessert, and a football game. It still went by so fast. 

Tuesday November 23

Crazy running around morning. Getting 3 kids, Brian, and myself all out the door by 850 to get Anna to school on time. She was a few minutes late. You would think that we would have the hang of this by now, and Ella and Austin are usually long gone at school by this time already. Thankfully her school is awesome and understanding of 2 year old's and the older siblings not having school making it rough. After dropping Anna off at school, we headed to my in-laws to drop of Ella and Austin and we headed to Austin's conference with his teacher. His teacher agreed to meet with us even though he had only been in school for 2 weeks. We used it as "an open house" type meeting to learn expectations, what he should be doing, etc. So far he is doing really well adjusting. We also previously had his speech therapy yearly evaluation and they are upping his therapy to 60 minutes a week, doing 20 minutes 4x a week, compared to he was previously getting speech once a week for 30 minutes. 

Ella's teachers have asked if we could do a conference sometime in December or January after they get more of a feel where she is. They did answer a lot of questions I had about expectations, homework, etc. It is so different from her last school where Ella had homework up to an hour a night, her new school doesn't have homework unless you didn't get something finished. 

Meal Planning Monday Week 74

 Hey loves. Happy Monday. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving to all my American readers. It is hard to believe that December starts on Wednesday. For those of you who have been asking, or wondering without asking, I am starting back up my daily recipes in December. Things got a little hectic with the move and I got off track with sharing recipes. 

Happy Thanksgiving

 Hey loves. Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours. We are spending the day with both our families, one for dinner and one for dessert. We also spent the morning decorating our Christmas Tree and our Elf on the Shelf Gus Gus arrived with a North Pole Breakfast!!! I will be back Monday with  a Thanksgiving Break Recap.

Here are some previous family photos from Thanksgiving past.


Whats Up Wednesday

 Hey loves. Happy Thanksgiving Eve if you live in the United States. I am excited for not having to make anything this year. Next year we will be hosting so it will be so different. I will enjoy the calm of this year. Are you hosting or attending Thanksgiving? 

Oh can I also say I am so happy that stores are not going to be open on Thanksgiving. I enjoy my time with family, not rushing to get to the store at 6pm for Black Friday deals. Also I am not shopping on Black Friday, unless it is online.  

It's that time for Whats Up Wednesday with Shay, and Sheaffer. On the last Wednesday of every month we are all invited to share a little bit everything that has been going on for the past month.

On the last week of August here's whats up...
