November Recap

Our busy year continued in November. We started the month with a family date to the IU Auditorium to see Straight No Chaser. They're the one group that all four us enjoy watching together.

Tailgate 1 of the year was with many of our college friends. We had 30 people which was fun but it was FREEZING.

Luckily, we had a fire pit to keep us warm.

The boys were off of school for election day so I stayed home with them and also watched my friends son. We saw Wreck It Ralph and I took them with me to vote. The temps went from 35 degrees the Saturday of the tailgate to 55 degrees the Tuesday of election day. #IndianaWeather

Nicklas had a cello concert. He looks thrilled, doesn't he?

There's a sorta smile!

Our second tailgate of the month was much warmer. All the in-laws and some family from Michigan attended. We had a pinata for the kids.

The next day, we took on the big pancakes of the Village Deli.

We had a light dusting of snow - I was so excited! - but it disappeared within an hour.
The day before Thanksgiving, we headed to Lake George. It was also the day before Nick's birthday and I had asked him what he wanted for his birthday breakfast. He insisted that since we would be at Lake George, he wanted Tom's Donuts. Miraculously, Tom's was open when we pulled on to Lake George Road. The entire family was shocked that Tom's was open at 9pm on Wednesday in November. It was a birthday miracle.

Uncle Bill made us garbage can turkey.

Nicklas celebrated his birthday with the Gallogly's.

He also celebrated in Delphi with the Kubatski clan.

We were in Lafayette during the Old Oaken Bucket game but didn't attend. IU lost.

We have season tickets for the IU men's basketball this year so we went to several games.

I started decorating for the holidays. Nicklas didn't really want to help with the tree this year but Seeger was all about it.

I spent the last day of November with some friends. We went to see the Nutcracker at the MAC on campus. The holiday's aren't complete without the Nutcracker!
