Was another busy month.

The first weekend we went hunting we left Friday and stayed on the mountain till Sunday evening since Andy and I both had to be back to work Monday. Andy went back up Wednesday morning, I stayed home figured I would take a couple days and catch up on things.


He came home Friday evening since we had a wedding to go to on Saturday and he and his cousin’s band was playing for it. It was a nice small wedding and I was able to catch up with some old friends that I don’t get to see very often.

That next morning Sunday the 11th we went back up to take down camp.

The next couple weeks I worked on the playroom for the kids and I finally got it put together for the daycare kids, it is so nice to be able to have all the toys out for them to play with and not have the living room a complete mess.  The kids love it.

It is starting to turn off cold although we have still had a few really nice days. We did get our first snow the other day, it really didn’t amount to much more wind than snow.

Monday evening the 19th I had a fair board meeting and didn’t get home till late.

With school being out for Thanksgiving I didn’t have very many of my regular kids but did have a few school-age kids this week.

Wednesday evening before Thanksgiving after work we went to my Dads for Thanksgiving dinner lots of good food. We planned our Christmas dinner and decided to do a few things different this year one we are going to have Navajo tacos for dinner and we lowered the price for the white elephant gift and made it an all-purpose gift so everyone can play at once instead of having the girls and then the guys plus this way the kids can join in.


Thanksgiving day we didn’t do much that evening we went over to some friends to play poker and board games.

Friday afternoon I decided to go check out the Black Friday deals ( our black Fridays are nothing compared to most places) in town so I went to Walmart and a couple other stores and got a big portion of my Christmas shopping done which wasn’t too hard as we are having a pretty small one this year since money is so tight. I do have a few things that need to be ordered so will be doing that this week.

That evening the kids and Andy’s Brother and wife came over for out Thanksgiving we had Navajo tacos, then played a couple card games. It was a pretty early night since two of them had an hours drive home and Joleen had to work the next morning.

Saturday Andy went out to the old Homestead to check on things and Katie called and wanted me to go to lunch with her so I met her in town. After we ate we ran to a store that had a couple really good sales to pick up a couple more things and I even bought something for my self haha they had Kitchenaid emulsan blenders on sale for half so I got one since I seem to go through the cheap ones pretty quick. That evening we just sat home watched movies and listened to the cold wind blow.

Sunday I cleaned out the chicken coop and got it ready for winter, did a little work on the goat pen ( still have some to do to get it ready for winter), Then got things ready to start another week.

We did get our first significant snowfall off the year.

I did get 16 quarts of pumpkin canned.

I have to say it has been one of the slower months this year. Not going to lie it was kind of nice haha.
