Nice November {2016}

Oh November!  Where did you go?  Where did this whole year go?  We are already over halfway through December and will soon be starting a whole new year.  November was a fairly nice and peaceful month before we started a busy and crazy month that would add another member to our family.  While it may not have been a very exciting month, we managed to have some fun together.

Little Mattox was pretty much the star of the show.  Oh the excitement he adds to the family!  He is always up to something...or in to something.  He continues to be his own fashionista wearing his clothes in unique ways.  He also likes to make a mess while eating his snack or breakfast.  If I give him a banana on a paper towel, the floor is going to end up looking like this.  That's torn up paper towel and bits of banana all over it.  Another cute thing he likes to do these days is hide objects down his shirt.  He is like a little old lady hiding money and stuff in her bra.  Haha!  We catch him sticking our cell phones and other objects down the front of his shirt.  He is the cutest little thief!

Brody likes pushing little brother around the yard in his car.

They even found a small pile of leaves on the edge of our neighbor's yard.  We don't have too many leaves in our yard right now because we only have a few small maple trees that aren't in great shape.

They love playing together at Chick-fil-a.  I like to take them right after school sometimes to let them play when it isn't busy and crowded.

Brody was doing his homework, and Mattox did finally accomplish going down the big slide by himself.

I had an errand to run at the mall, and I decided we would make a day of it.  We took the boys to eat at the Japanese steakhouse there which has been a favorite since Daddy and I were in college.  Our chef was so funny and full of jokes, and Brody always loves the fire.

These boys have been playing so well together these days.  They love making tents under the bed sheets, falling asleep together, and playing in their sandbox.

Brody is still our resident artist making tons of artwork for us.

Mattox is a kisser.  He loves giving kisses and makes the cutest kissing sound that sounds like "bahhh."  It seemed he was really getting ready for his baby to arrive because he took his big brother's baby picture and was kissing it.  Now, he gives tons of kisses to his new baby brother.

The boys and mom hit up Rita's one more time before it closes for the season.  Mattox and Brody enjoyed a gingerbread spice Italian ice and gelato shake while Mommy enjoyed her pumpkin spice one.  Evan stuck with his gelato sundae.

Happiness is definitely a little boy wearing a superhero cape eating some Rita's!

Mattox was enjoying Brody dragging him around in a blanket.

The big boys loved going to their school book fair and getting some new books to read.

And they got their picture with Little Zax at Zaxby's one night.

We had a breakfast treat on one of their last days of school before winter break and ate doughnuts at Dunkin Donuts.

Mattox and Daddy went to Mommy's last doctors' appointments with her.  Then, we all enjoyed a cold night outdoors going with Daddy to a work event.

We ate some yummy barbecue.

I finished two projects, a wreath for Mattie for Christmas, and a new blanket for baby Grayson.  I made his out of chunkier yarn for a warmer and cozier winter blanket.

Brody wanted his picture taken with the wreath.

Sweet baby boy came down with a bad cold for about a week, and we both enjoyed lots of snuggling and napping together.

We all enjoyed another Mexican feast together.  Photos courtesy of Brody.

We also enjoy eating at Pei Wei a lot.

Oh this sweet, silly boy.

We enjoyed celebrating another Thanksgiving with Great-Grandpa and Grandma, and Evan interviewed them for a Cub Scout project.

And we got our house decorated for Christmas before baby Grayson arrived.   We are ready for a wonderful Christmas! 


  1. After a Nice November I hope you are having an absolutely Delightful December.
