 Our favorite November tradition is our grateful tree. We've done this the last few years and it's always a fun thing for the kids (and Josh and I) to reflect on all the many things we are grateful for. 
Park days with Mya and Tate while Bryn's in school.
 I love going on walks with my kids, especially when the sidewalks are covered in leaves!
 There are scenes like this all around our neighborhood and it never gets old. 
The last of the leaves in our backyard.
 Wild man Tate doing one of his favorite things: turning the fridge light on and off and on and off. 
Sometimes I get desperate and have to cage up Tate if I want to make dinner. Ha ha! This didn't last for long because Tate figured out how to push the whole gate around and bang into the furniture :)
 Bryn with a her watercolor leaves and Mya with her pumpkin art projects from a little art class she takes at the Rec Center. 
Josh didn't have to travel too much in November and we always love having him home in the evenings. 
 Tate is becoming more and more curious. Yikes.
 Mya insists on dressing herself most days. That's why we end up with little pink shorts and socks + crocs!
The outfit on the right was her outfit she chose for her art class at the Rec Center. She is a little OCD about getting her hands messy, so she occasionally carries hand sanitizer with her.... sometimes in her shirt pocket :)
Mya's hair is the best for braiding!
 For Thanksgiving we got together with Jake and Tyra, the Mathuseks, and the Feinhours. It was a great day! We're sad that this will be the last holiday we celebrate with Jake and Tyra's family before they move to Chicago. It's been so fun to live so close to cousins this past year and a half. We are going to miss them so badly!

 Thanksgiving rolls. Yum.
 Bryn and Mya color and draw every spare minute!
 Mya hard at work
 Mya has recently started drawing more recognizable figures and it's cracking me up. This is a drawing of two fairies. (You can see the gray wings and wands if you look closely).

 And one last silly drawing from Bryn as we head into Christmas season :)
