I know that you have missed our smiling faces and witty banter for the last three weeks! It's OK, you can admit that there is a small hole in your heart that can only be filled by our weekly blog updates.

There are a couple of reasons for our absence in the blogosphere. 1. We are still living at my parent's after nearly a month and it just seems strange to update a blog when its main devotees live under your roof. 2. I have been lazy about downloading our pictures and blog posts sans pics tend to be dull.

We have been having a lot of fun for the last few weeks and feel as though we are on an extended visit to California. I am happy to report that the vacation-like atmosphere will soon be a thing of the past when we move into our own space next weekend! Ben is heading back up to Canada in a couple of days to bring down all of our earthly belongings. Can't wait to get on with the next chapter! Wha-hoo!

Here is the brief re-cap of the month of November... we have been going to parties the entire month!

True Friends! I had the pleasure of being a bridesmaid in my friend Catherine's beautiful wedding. I have known these two gorgeous girls since 6th grade! I am thrilled to be living a short-drive away from the TF's.

We were excited to be able to attend Canadian cousin Sienna's 3rd Birthday Party! Here is a pic of all of the party's VIP guests.

Lily got to celebrate her 1st American Thanksgiving in California! Cousin Sienna and Brian came down to celebrate too. Here is a pic of the cutie cousins having some Thanksgiving spirit with their little gourds.

Lil and cousin Forest on Thanksgiving. Not sure if she likes her cousin pushing her around...

Take that cousin Forest!
