November 2014 Summary

November was a BIG month for our family full of BIG decisions! 

Joe received two job offers and after lots of networking, research, prayers, and trips to the temple we are excited to announce that we will be taking a job in Michigan this upcoming June! (I will write a future post with more info in the near future.)

I decided to start a photography business...not just taking occasional photos of friends but an actual full on business complete with a website! I took the huge jump and purchased my first full frame high end professional camera and am so excited!!! I will be launching my photography website in January. 

We took a trip to Moab! This was the perfect little get away with our family. We really enjoyed the day together talking, driving and hiking. The kids hiked to Delicate Arch and did a great job, James and Ali walked the whole way!

James lost his first tooth! You can read more about it here.

The kids discovered a new favorite food and asked for it every snack time...puff Cheetos. 

Hannah pulled all the books off the bookshelf at least 4 times a day...she loves reading books. A few of her favorites are: Goodnight Moon, Baby Food, Black Bear Black Bear What Do You See and any book with a dog or farm animals in it. 

We had lots of fun going on walks and playing in the leaves. 

We spent a lot of time at the park. 

James and Ali loved playing our Wii U!

This is Hannah right before bed. She loves to wear her boots and is full of attitude. We laugh that she wears her boots with her pajamas:)

We picked the rest of our roses and got the bushes and yard ready for winter. 

We spent Thanksgiving with Joe's family in Cache Valley. I love going back to the Valley we grew up in, it is beautiful!

Thanksgiving dinner...

The kids loved playing with their cousins and Sam the dog. Hannah is obsessed with dogs.

We had an amazing Christmas party with Joe's family and Santa. You can read more about it here.
