Started the month with Isabel dressed up as a Skunk for Trick or Treat.  She had a great time going around with Tommie next door.  Thecostumesweather was nice and once Trick or Treating was over the rain came.  Next weekend we had an appointment to get pictures of Isabel and us.  We were outside at a local park with the cold and wind, but Isabel did great and we have some wonderful pictures from it.  Isabel had her first friend’s birthday party to attend and she had a blast.  We took Tommie to the Creekside lighting ceremony and walked through the park to see all the lights.  Isabel went the Mom and Dad to the Zoo to see the lights and she got to see Santa as well.  This was the first year she would sit on his lap and tell him what she wanted for Christmas.  Now she is so excited to have Thanksgiving and Christmas.  We went to Abby’s birthday party and had a nice visit with the Perdews.  Another 6 year old in the family amazing how time flies.  We hosted Thanksgiving this year and had a nice time with the family as usual.  Good food and family to share in it all.  I also bought some more outside decorations because Isabel wants the house to look pretty for Santa and herself.  Made it to the parade of lights in Gahanna on Friday and Isabel loved it.  Tracy and I even got a little time together in while Mom and Dad watched Isabel.  Then as usual we spent the last day of the month baking cookies to be able to share throughout Christmas time.  It was our 8th annual cookie baking the Saturday after Thanksgiving.  Now on to celebrate Christmas.
