Thanksgiving

I bought this banner at Hobby Lobby for November.




I decorated the fireplace mantle with corn on the cob and leaves.



I bought a burlap bow to hang on the front door.



We went to Salt Lake and celebrated my birthday on Friday night, by going to the Cheesecake Factory.  I had a slice of their lemon raspberry cream cheesecake.

For my actual birthday on Sunday,We made shredded pork, a Hawaiian macaroni salad, and a pineapple upside down cake.  Mom and Dad got me some clothes and two gift cards.



We had the Presidential Election.  I was lucky enough to vote by mail.  It was a tough outcome.

Dad and I went and saw the movies, Doctor Strange and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

There was a Super Moon:



We got our first snowfall of the year on Nov 16th.



For Thanksgiving, I made Pumpkin pies.



I made a Lemon Jell-O Salad with cheese, pineapple, and walnuts.



We made Cinnamon Apples



We made Italian Rice Stuffing.



We made a slow roasted turkey.



We had our first major snowstorm on Monday.




We went and saw the movie, Moana.

Halloween

I decorated our trees with foam pumpkins.



I found these pumpkins at Goodwill and decorated the candles with them.




I took pictures of all our leaves and flowers after they changed colors.






























I decorated the outside lights with cats on pumpkins.















Dad and I went and saw the movie, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

We went to our ward's trunk or treat.  We had to make chili.  I went as Poison Ivy.




It was such fabulous weather for a few days.  I got to walk outside.



When we went out to eat on Saturday, our waiter was dressed like Negan from the Walking Dead, bat and all.  We went to walmart and saw a lady wearing a wedding gown with Fed Ex shipping tape wrapped around it, as a Mail Order Bride.

I went for Halloween as a witch.

Fitbit


Since buying my Fitbit Charge HR in February, the band has started bubbling and peeling off. I found these silicon covers to protect it from further peeling on Amazon. The company I bought them through is called GearKing.
