november update & happy thanksgiving!

i'm combining the whole month of November into this giant post because time is precious these days
we've had a great month filled with lots of firsts
to start with molly started ice skating lessons every saturday morning & loves it!
 we're so fortunate to live only 5 minutes away from the new scott hamilton skate academy
and it's a great facility!  

here are a few pictures of her very first time on ice...ever!  
the rink is so huge, i don't think she realized what exactly would happen to start with
here her coach lead her to the ice and left her to herself while she greeted the other students.

 that is one way to learn....she scaled the whole rink holding onto the sides!
to a tiny 6 year  old that could be a scary adventure!
i thought when she saw me that she might be crying and want out, but nope! she was holding strong!

 she's quite the strong competitor, much unlike me!
i would have quit after that first day for sure! 
now she has about 4 lessons down and she's doing so much better!  
she not afraid, she's not falling as much, and she's beginning to glide!!

 a couple pictures from the switch witch...the day after halloween she comes to "visit" and switches most of molly's halloween candy for a gift!

 this year she gave her cozy, warm frozen slippers and frozen change bags!

 we went to visit santa the first weekend he arrived at our galleria
we always like to go early!
 we stopped at macy's and wrote a letter to santa!
macy's always has the cutest santa mailbox out for kids!                          

 as you can see...she wants dinosaurs for christmas! ha!

 we got a teeny bit of snow this month!

our yard won yard of month in our neighborhood!
that's a fun treat that comes with a $50 check!  awesome!
 i'm so thankful that i teach at the same school molly attends b/c it allows me to pop in for little events like this
kindergarten thanksgiving feast!
 kindergarten teachers are brave and amazing!
they put all of the kiddos in the hallway and let them enjoy their "feast" together
they were so adorable!

 she loves her teacher!!!
 and here we are on thanksgiving morning...getting the turkey ready!
she's really been a "helper" in the kitchen lately!

 here she is washing the dishes the day before thanksgiving!

 i love thanksgiving morning!!!!!
the parade was on and i was finishing some cooking in the kitchen and she was having a blast, dancing away!
i have a picture of her doing this when she was really little too!

 and then, let the party begin!
we started the fun at 2:00 p.m. and had about 16 people and kids here total
it was a great day!
 molly had just finished watching the dog show...and she was a dog in these pictures!
