Month in Review: November 2009

Once again, this has been a month during which I was too busy to post. *Sigh* Well, at least y'all get to see the monthly slide show. Yay!

During this last month my parents finally closed a sale on their house and found one to move into here in town. They were in temporary lodging for a week, and on November 23 – the Monday before Thanksgiving – the movers brought everything to their new home. Hooray! Insane as it may seem, my mom insisted on hosting Thanksgiving at their new house, to break it in and make it feel like home. So after a whirlwind 3 days of unpacking, the house was ready to receive two families – 13 adults and 2 small children – for Thanksgiving dinner. It was great! Unfortunately, I forgot to bring my camera to the occasion, so I'll have to get some photos from my folks. But there's plenty of November goodness to feast your eyes on in this slide show, including some from the November 1 Turkey Feast at the home of our friends, Brad and Liz. Enjoy!


  1. He's really starting to look like quite the little man! And amazing how he can look like both of you at the same time...

  2. Cherice, I was just thinking that very thought just a second ago! He's got your cheeks, B., and your forehead, and yet his ears and the corners of his head--or, not the corners of his head, but where corners would be if there were corners--speak to me of Korie.

    Congratulations to your parents! And to whoever bought their house: it's a beautiful piece of work. Did they buy a house in Newberg, or are they in Portland proper? Are they planning to stay in it long-term, or just for the next few years?

  3. They're in the 'berg, and they're here to stay. Woot!
