November Happenings--2016

We are already in to November.  This half of the year has flown by so fast.  Here is a little peek of what we did during the month of November. 
1.  Mason wanted his bunk bed stacked so one Saturday, Casey did it.  He was so excited to sleep on top of his new beds.
2.  Casey teaching the boys a few golf techniques.
3.  Ry and Meg came over for Sunday dinner.  Mabel loves holding Blake.
4.  Blakey loves his Doc-A-Tot.  He falls asleep in it in any position.
5.  ELECTION TIME!!   I always feel the need to vote, since the prophet has asked us to as part of fulfilling our civic duty.  Although voting for a presidential candidate, this year, was not the easiest decision, I feel good about the decision I made.  God Bless America!!  I'm just grateful for the knowledge I have that no matter what happens, if I choose the right I will be able to be with my family forever!
6.  Our newly elected president and Blake share the same hair do.
7.  Blakey... growing way too fast.

8.  We took another vacation to St. George this month.  Casey went to Vegas to participate in a gun training course and I took the boys to St. George. 
9.  The boys love going down their slide when there is snow on it. 
10.  We put up our Christmas tree pretty early this year.  Mason was so excited to put the star on top of the tree. 

11.  Happy Thanksgiving!!  We celebrated Thanksgiving with my family this year.  We had a delicious Thanksgiving spread completed with all the trimmings. After a yummy Thanksgiving dinner, we decorated gingerbread houses and then ate pie.  It was a great day!!  And Blakey looked so cozy in his sheepy outfit. 

12.  The Mecham family annual grandchild party.  We ate a pizza dinner, made a Christmas craft, and broke a piñata.  We always look forward to this party, it's always the start to our Christmas festivities.
13.  Blake loves holding his fingers. 
14.  We took the boys (minus Blake) to the North Pole at Seven Peaks.  We had so much fun.  They boys loved every minute of it and it wasn't even crowded at all so we got to ride everything more than once.  After we rode the rides, we got to go visit Santa.  We had a great time.  We might even make this a new tradition. 

November was a fun and busy month.  That seems to be the theme for months, weeks, and days lately.  We are looking forward to Christmas and celebrating Blakey's first Christmas.
