November Excitement!

November had lots of fun things crammed in!  Danielle and I met at the mall and got ice creams after!  It's a reward for the moms and the kids!  
The Putnam sisters got a make over!  After 33 years of never coloring my hair, I did it!  My sisters and I went to my friend, Emily, and she cut and colored all our hair!  I love the way they all turned out!  Here's our "before" picture!

The start of the "afters"!

Lyss put the pics all side-by-side so we could tell the difference!

Thomas made the school instagram one day.  He's a ham!
It was the Mother/Daughter Ice Cream Social - before we headed off to a night of basketball, we got some ice cream!  Love my sporty girls!
I took some pictures for Danielle's boutique.  This one of Isabelle takes the cake!  
We went to a BYU football game!  It was perfect weather!  Short sleeves even!  We went with my siblings and their kids.  It was heaven!  

As is the tradition, we went over during half time and visited Papa and Grandma. 

We had a fun YM/YW activity - we carved ice cream of our favorite scriptures.  I sure love these kids!  

 Kjersta came for a visit and brought her girls!  We love them!  A visit from good friends is SO good for my soul!
 We had THE best Young Women In Excellence Night!  We did a Wizard of Oz theme.  We had 8 or 9 girls (including ME!) get their Medallion!  I think it's a ward record!!!  ;)
 I am SO proud of these girls!  I love them!

My Laurels: Hannah, Mallory, Amberlee, McKinley, Camryn, Bailey, Sis Ashworth, Madi and Britlee!  
Cam and Rach came to visit for Thanksgiving!  Since we were going to Idaho for Thanksgiving, they came down to see us for family night before we left!  These kids are hilarious together!  Such fun cousin time!

The last day of school before Thanksgiving break, Thomas' teacher was proposed to!!!  IN CLASS!!! He had each kid give Miss Christiansen a rose and tell her what they were thankful for about her.  

Thomas is on the left, gray shirt.  :)
The class made blankets for the children's hospital for their party. 
I did the same thing with Kaley's class!  :)
