November was full of fun, family, and friends. As we saw in past posts we had been to Disneyland and Jack had been very active photographing Can Jam in Santa Barbara. The other highlights were an early Thanksgiving dinner with the Willoughby side of the fam. My cousin and his family recently moved to Portland to work on his beard growth and develop an affinity for coffee and overcast weather. Keegan was particularly smitten with Cooper and it’s clear next year she’ll have all the kids wrapped around her fingers.
We had our actual Thanksgiving up with the Ross clan where we got the super exciting news that Aaron and Courtney are going to have their first kid, sadly the only moment we caught of that reveal was a quick hip shot I took when they surprised us, but you can see the joy in Courtney’s face. After Thanksgiving we headed back to SB to get to spend more quality time with Uncle Ben, Aunt Megan, and Uncle Ned, oh and those grandparents the boys like too.
The month ended with us doing our annual Christmas tree purchase with the Ungers, a special time we’ve done for at least 5 years now but the first time we didn’t get to buy it at classy OSH. I should also point out that Jack started getting Highlights magazines which has really been awesome, he loves the surprise of when they arrive but he really loves all the activities and stories in each one. I don’t think I could have been prepared for how much we all enjoy that subscription.
