November 2020: Getting Back to Normal

 Rereading the title and thinking....Not really sure what normal is anymore but November is when Ty came back and we spent the month trying to spend as much time together as possible. We tried to find a rhythm and flow again. It came pretty easily. These kids are growing so FAST. It's a bittersweet thing that I struggle to watch. I love to see them do their firsts and at the same time, I mourn that it's the last time they will do each thing. I guess I don't have much of a choice in the matter but to count it as a blessing to watch them grow. 

Thanksgiving was spent by ourselves this year. It was simple and quiet. Well, as quiet as it can get with 3 kids and 2 dogs in the house. Ha. We made some cocktails and lounged around. We did get dressed for Thanksgiving Dinner but after that, it was right back in pj's. There were no plans and it was truly perfect. After having Ty gone so long, it felt like a party just to have him back! 

I found myself super excited to decorate for the holidays and I put our trees up in the beginning of November. I just love the feeling of the holidays. I like to make it last as long as possible. So all of the decor came down and we had fun decorating the trees and kid's rooms. I let the kids each decorate a tree in their rooms so that they don't touch mine in the living room. Ha ha. November was another good month of spending a lot of time together. Even though we were busy, at least we were together. I love this house full of crazies. The madness that happens is often overwhelming but I wouldn't want it any other way!
