Moments of the Month | November 2013

So, it’s not THAT weird that I’m blogging about November on New Year’s Eve, is it?  Well, whatever.  November has the same kind of feeling as New Year’s eve, when you think about — remembering what’s past, and what you’re grateful for.  Starting with THIS — my family.  And the little remote thingamajiggy that allowed me to get in a family picture for our Christmas card this year.  (See my left hand).


My “assistant” was a big help with getting the Christmas card picture of the kids — before a football game at West Point in early November.

Lots of monopoly in November, for some reason.


A trip to the NY Botanic Gardens to see the holiday train show (and to play with my new macro lens).

A visit to the fire house with the cub scouts.

AND — the best (and biggest) Thanksgiving EVER — complete with combined sides of the family and a bonus dose of Canadian cousins!

A delightful recuperation at the country house of some friends the weekend after Thanksgiving.

My Instagram snaps round out the November picture with a fun night with the professor in the city, Paul’s first piano lesson, an audition for the All County Orchestra, and some other everyday adventures.  The shot of the Thanksgiving night hootenanny is now framed in my front hall as a reminder of a great night.
