I always love November because it's the month to stop and reflect on all you have. To celebrate with loved ones, and to remember we aren't only lucky to have so much, we're truly blessed. So I say farewell to November a little begrudgingly. I'm very excited for December and all the fun that comes with it, but know there will also be a lot of stress and chaos. So for just today I am going to try to slow down and be thankful for all I have. Goodbye November, until next year.

So instead, we crawled out of our sick cave, and went to the grocery store because we haven't had any real food in our house for weeks. Bringing me to what I'm thankful for today.. **************
Last night Bob and I went grocery shopping. It took waayyy too long. But it's always more fun when we go together. So we can liven it up just a bit by teasing each other about women's razors, cheese bricks, and which desserts we want.
We went home and had a taco night. We cooked dinner together and talked. We then curled up on the couch in our warm apartment, ate, and laughed our guts out at Modern Family. (Do you watch this show? You should.)
Today I'm thankful for the necessities. The food in our fridge, and our comfortable living situation. (And that we can afford medicine so we could take Nyquil and both sleep comfortably.)

A man that makes me laugh every single day. Even when he's sick. (The poor guy has a double ear infection and a sinus infection.) I love him, and find myself thankful for him more and more every day.

I hand delivered my invites.. (yes those are fingers.. find the recipe here.)
And then I got to brainstorming on some spooky decorations and details. (I must admit Martha helped me out.)
I bought pumpkins, and gutted them so we could serve soup in them. Bob made some yummy skewers, and poppers. And then the guests brought yummy side dishes to add to the meal.
After dinner we played a couple games, chatted, and laughed a lot.
I realized after the party that for a lot of the pictures I had my camera on the wrong setting, so most of my pictures were pretty blurry and hazy. But I will just say I did it on purpose to make everyone look spooky and ghostly.
Among the group we had a white trash wedding. (Aubrie's pregnant), a witch, a match, and Cleopatra and Mark Antony. Everyone looked great.
I have to say we had a lot of fun this year. Thanks to everyone who came and made it so fun. Next party to think about? Our annual Christmas party. I think I might try to revel in this month first. Happy November!

Then we got to carving.
Bob wins the award for most creative with his conjoined twins. I seriously don't know how he comes up with this stuff. (Please notice he even included a cleft lip on one of them.)
After carving we lit some candles, and talked. We tried to come up with some scary stories, but I think by the end of the night we were all pretty tired. We did spot Jovie the ghost dog though.
Thanks to everyone for such a fun night. Next up, the Halloween partay. More on that tomorrow.
