November seems so long ago....but it must have been a good month because we took lots of pictures, so here goes....

Joslyn decided that this outfit was"ugly" and she was so upset that I was making her wear it, but I thought she looked absolutely adorable, tears and all. 
 Jos made this superhero mask at the gym and was so proud of it. She wore it all day. 
 And fell asleep in the car with it on too. 
 Jos had a small cavity and got to have the laughing gas during her filling. She did so good, and didn't have to have any other meds to numb her mouth. 
Jos got to go to a cute children's theater performance of The Little Mermaid with all her girl cousins. 
She loved it!
 And was thrilled to get a picture with Ariel after the performance. 
We stuck to our annual tradition of going to the demolition derby at the state fair. This year it was RV demolition.  IT  WAS  AWESOME!!!!!! It is something that MUST be done again and again!
 Jos got to go on a ride. The boys used their money for carnival games. 
 And we had to get a pic with the strange giant pants in the cage???

John went on a business trip to Nashville. He stayed in the amazing Opryland hotel. He was crazy busy the whole time he was there, but did get to enjoy some of the beautiful hotel. 

My Grandpa Chapman passed away. I went to see him the night before he died. I got to sing at his bedside with my aunts. It was so peaceful and gave me comfort even knowing this would be the last time I'd see him. The funeral was a wonderful tribute to an amazing man. I'm know he was welcomed home by his father whom he hadn't seen since he was just a little boy. I will miss him, but am so lucky to have so many wonderful memories of him. 
We had some fun with balloons one Saturday afternoon. The kids had a great time letting them go and watching them float away.
 Jos helped herself to a snack and hid in the pantry to enjoy it. 
 Enjoying dinner out by the fire pit. 
 Tate used his allowance to buy a bow and arrows. He loves it!

Cute Jos enjoying a cupcake.
John needed to document his battle wounds from shooting his friend's 50caliber gun. 
 We went down to Mill Ave for the APS light parade. It was lots of fun and just might need to become an annual tradition. 

I know we had Thanksgiving too, but apparently we did not take any pictures that day???
