Hello December! :-) It's been quite busy here and recently Kathleen turned 14!!!! How is that even possible?
We bought her a sweatshirt from one of her favorite YouTubers and she put it on right away. I think you can tell by her smile how much she loves it :-)
We had a little cake for her birthday and it was so strange not having Hayley there to celebrate as she was still at college.
However for Thanksgiving when we had everyone around we did get another cake and celebrated it with her again.
Our niece Neve drove to Appalachian state with my sister and got to see Hayley's dorm and campus and spend the night. Then they brought her back home to celebrate Thanksgiving with us.
I wish we were all closer to spend more time together. These girls are growing up so quickly!!!
Neve is 15, Hayley is 18 and now Kathleen is 14!!!
On Black Friday, Jerry, myself, my sister and Hayley went shopping for awhile. Hayley started out in heels initially which I told her she was crazy for wearing that day, lol. Needless to say she saw a great sale on slippers in Torrid and bought them and wore them around as we were wrapping up the night. :-)
Jerry made this wooden Christmas tree and star for his work and added lights to it for decoration. He also made the girls each a wooden Christmas tree a little smaller version and let them paint it. I told him I wanted him to build me one of the bigger ones for our yard, lol ;-)
We've started decorating around the house and the outside is all finished!
Both trees are done inside and again it was strange not having Hayley there to decorate with us. I miss her so much!
It was Jerry's night to move the elves, lol......
We still do it as a family tradition and now the girls are in on it too. ;-)
This is very suitable for our home this year having 2 decorated trees inside with 3 cats! LOL
I've been busy this month taking part in Vlogmas on YouTube, which is basically creating a vlog video every day until Christmas, some go through the whole month which I may do! I'm posting the first 5 here in case you'd like to follow along. It's been a lot of filming and editing, but so worth it for the memories!
Have a fabulous weekend!! Thanks for stopping by!
