November in a Nutshell

November was a busy month between Ryan having finals, Thanksgiving, and work. We drove to Michigan to stay with my sister and the rest of my family came and visited as well. It was so fun having our whole family together for Thanksgiving. We haven't been together for over a year and we haven't been together for Thanksgiving since 2001!!

Next year we will be moving to Grand Blanc MI so Ryan can continue his education in a hospital setting. I am so excited to move there for many reasons but an added bonus is that it is
40 minutes away from my sister!! Ryan and I decided to take a day and drive up there to look at different housing places. It was crazy to think that in 7 months this will be our new home. The hospital/grounds were really nice and we found some nice places we could live in :)

My nephew turned
3 and we celebrated with a cowboy cake. We did the tradition turkey dinner with all the fixings but most importantly...

BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING!!! and turkey bowl (football)
My sister and I left the house at midnight to head to Old Navy for pjs and noticed that the line was forming already at Target (we weren't plannin on lining up until 2) so we hurried and ran to Walmart to get some presents on sale and then headed to Target. We were not prepared for the
freezing cold temperatures. My sister was in flip flops and I was in a hoodie. She stood in line while I ran back to the house for some warm supplies. We got home at 7:30, took a small nap, showered and headed out again with my mom...

We scored some good deals and now I can't wait for Christmas!!

We returned home to Kirksville to super cold temperatures. It makes it feel more like Christmas without snow and the mountains back west :(
I haven't even unpacked yet because next Friday we are leaving to go to Idaho Falls to visit Ryan's family and having Christmas there!

I hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving and have a Merry Christmas (hopefully I post before that!)
