We studied about painting techniques in home schooling for art.
My niece came and spent the day and the girls played dress up, ballet, pretend and tea party till their hearts content.
Yes, this is typical to find on my camera in our home.
Antonio's favorite band is the Annie Moses Band. There is some amazing talent in this group (that link is a youtube video of them). Most of the band members are all from the same family. I sit there amazed as to all the instruments they can play and how well they do it. It was a real treat to see and hear them in real life. To me they are kind of a mix of Celtic women and Mannheim Steamroller. They came to our town in concert at the Gem Theater and we were able to all go and enjoy the concert together. My dad even went with us!
Above is us waiting for the concert to start. William and Antonio sat on the front row in the handicap section. The rest of us sat further back.
I groomed my dog so she would look good for company coming for the holidays. (Actually, I groomed three of the five house dogs. I just take more pictures of mine. :) That's Pickles all bathed and blow-dryed on the top and freshly groomed below.
The beautiful flowers my mother-in-law brought me on Thanksgiving.
Of course we celebrated Zeke's 12th birthday!
Here is a beautiful storm that blew in across the area in November.
Another yearly tradition is for us to go to the Gem theater for the holiday concert of the local hand-bell choir. Antonio has all their CD's and loves to listen to them. They put it on every year for the Blewer Food pantry. The cost of admission is one can of food per person.
Put on top of all this our normal home schooling, care of all the children's special needs, house work, the farm care, keeping the wood stove going, cooking and baking. You can see November was a blessed, full and wonderful month for sure! Thank you God for our life, health and for all you allow us to do.
Psalm 70:4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.
