November Tidbits

Thanksgiving is only a few days away! I don't know about y'all, but I am looking forward to turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, green bundles, chocolate pecan pie, and MORE! Baby Price will love it, too. HA! Most of all, seeing family is the BEST! I decided to do a little "November catch-up" post today since it was pretty eventful. I just wanted to document it, of course!
It has been raining babies in our Sunday school class. There are not one, not two, but FIVE expectant mothers! That means baby showers, of course!
My dear friend, Mandy, is expecting a baby boy any day now. We threw her a shower earlier this month. We are looking forward to meeting Ezra soon!
 She got some cute things for him. It was fun to be together.
 That Saturday, we had another baby shower! Kelsey is expecting her little girl in February. She is also one of my dear friends. Love her lots! Look at this huge cake!
 Yes, here are all FIVE of us! I'm due in May, Rhyanne is due in March, Nicole is due in February and Kelsey is due in February also. Mandy is due in December! Kelsey and I are both expecting our first babies. SO exciting for everyone!
 Kelsey had a photographer take pics of the shower. Here's one of all of us who attended. Love this picture lots!
I usually update about Operation Christmas Child every year. This year, we bought things for a little girl. We kept finding cute "Hello Kitty" things at the store, so it turned into the theme for this year's box.
 Will all this fit in a shoebox?
 Yes! We got it to fit! We hope this little girl enjoys all the goodies, but most of all we pray that she knows the love of Christ and follows Him.
 I admit it. I have been slowly adding to Baby Price's collection of goodies. And family has also given us sweet goodies, so we added that to the collection. We are finding out gender in about two weeks, and can hardly wait!
Stephen Curtis Chapman was in Bentonville! We had to see that awesome concert at our church. I did not get many good pictures, but did get a few.

Laura Story was on tour with him. She always travels with her sweet little girl. I love Laura Story so much because she has such a wonderful and heartfelt testimony. Her husband, Martin, had a brain tumor about 7 years ago, early in their marriage. Laura wrote several songs about their trials, but mostly, how the Lord pulled them through. Now they have a two year old little girl! Amazing!
 We are having a Christmas theme gender reveal at our house next weekend, so we have been decorating for Christmas. Yes, we actually decorated some before Thanksgiving. Shocker, I know. Hey, y'all, Thanksgiving is late this year, so it's okay. :) And yes, I am somewhat addicted to Christmas Tree Spode. On to the next subject!
 Last night, Bentonville held their annual lighting of the square. We usually go every year. IT WAS FREEZING outside!!!!  I think next year we may go after the official lighting because we don't want our baby to freeze. Ha!
We love our town so much!
So there y'all have it. November in a nutshell. Well, most of November, anyway. :)
Happy early Thanksgiving!
I must end this post with a cute children's poem I learned from my sister.
Dinner's ready, don't be late,
Mr. Turkey on my plate!
Dinner's ready, don't be late,
Mashed Potatoes on my plate!
Dinner's ready, don't be late,
dressing is on my plate!
(Just keep naming the foods you eat on Turkey day.)
This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. 2 Corinthians 9:12
