November

How does time go by so fast? I just realized I haven’t posted a single blog entry for November. So here’s a recap of our month.

My sister, Kelsie, got married in the Houston, Texas temple and we were able to be there for that. My parents, siblings, and families were all there – the first time in 5 years that we have all been in one place.

Here is the bride and groom with their nieces and nephews.

I’ll have to post more pictures when I get them.

We also went to the Houston Space Center.

We took a 90 minute tour of the space center – we rode on a tram, stopped at several different spots, and got to see everything from mission control to the Saturn V rocket to the grove of trees planted to honor fallen astronauts. Sandy was really interested in learning about the astronauts.

We also made it to the beach just as it was getting dark. Here’s a picture of Sandy with my dad on the beach.

Bill turned 35. Here is our traditional birthday breakfast and presents:

His  parents hosted a birthday dinner for the family to celebrate the birthdays of Bill and his brother Eric. Here is Bill with his orange cake with chocolate ganache frosting. I made it using this recipe. It tasted good, but it was so moist it was falling apart when I tried to frost it.

Here is Eric with his cake.

Also, Bill finished the projector project he has been working on for the past 3 years. Here he is building a mount – and letting Sandy run a drill press.

Between daylight savings time, traveling to a different time zone, and kids being sick with croup, our sleep schedule has been very off this month. Here’s some random pictures of the girls jumping on the couch one morning in their pajamas. And, yes, Sandy did wear a skirt over her pajamas to bed. She loves skirts.

Such cute photos! I love that Sandy wears skirts over her pj's! Vivian actually has a couple of pairs that came with skirts so I don't think it's strange at all-just adorable! :)
