Goodbye November

Good morning, friends! How was your Thanksgiving break? I enjoyed every little bit of mine. It wasn't intentional, but I was offline from mid-Wednesday till Sunday night. Four days. And I kind of loved it. Doesn't it feel good to take a break from the interwebs once in awhile?

Thanksgiving Day dawned sunny and bright. We started ours with a Turkey Trot hosted by the Charles Family. Followed by homemade donuts, a la Liz Charles, that melted in the mouth.

The day ended with a viewing of Fantastic Mr. Fox which is so good you will not believe it.

The middle of the day was mostly filled with mashed potatoes and gravy and nieces and nephews.
Exactly how it should be.

November was wonderful. But I'm really excited that tomorrow is December. Are you with me?

We *loved* Fantastic Mr. Fox, too. And I went home wanting a dress just like Mrs. Fox: yellow, tailored, with big pockets across the front. I think it's the first time I've been inspired by animated fashion :)

Omygosh, those donuts look JUST like Krispy Kreme. I bet they taste even better.

I have a hard time taking time off because I feel like the catch-up I have to do when I get back online nullifies the whole vacation. Sigh.

OMG those donuts look amazing. Unexpected internet breaks are good things (most of the time!).

I can't wait for December either. We have 3 birthdays, an anniversary and of course Christmas. My favourite month of the year!

Who is Liz Charles and how do I become related to her?

Those doughnuts...look delish.

I recently participated in a 5K Turkey Trot, but after reading this post I'm going to write a turkey trot into the traditions of my family's Thanksgiving holiday.

I couldn't agree more. December is the month our first child will (hopefully) be born. We are due on Dec. 28th. This might be the best month ever!
