November was a fun month. Pictures below. Here are some of the highlights:

*One of the pictures is of Magdalena dancing with Anna and my grandparents on Nov 20th. In honor of my grandparents who used to go dancing weekly back in the day, we had a family dance with my whole extended family. It was a blast and Magdalena was the life of the party. She was the first one dancing, and the last one dancing. And she danced the entire time. Probably over 2 hours. She just kept going and going. She didn’t care if anybody was on the dance floor with her or not. She didn’t care if she had a huge audience or if nobody was paying attention. She just danced and danced and just had a great time. At the end, she told us her legs were hurting. I’m sure they were after that workout!

*One Nov. 22nd Magdalena made her first snowman. So fun!

*We had Thanksgiving with our close family friends (my second family) this year. It was really a great time. It was the first time we had all been together in a few years. Everyone was there–all the kids and grandkids in their family and ours.

*The first Monday after Thanksgiving we set up the Christmas tree. Magdalena and James both have loved seeing the tree every day. I’m not looking forward to taking it down.
