Monday Morning Weekend Roundup


We had a great weekend.  As a family, we really needed that long weekend together.  And boy did we take advantage of those four days!  On Thursday, we traveled to Grandma and Grandpa Miller's house for Thanksgiving.  On Saturday, we went to a tree farm and found our perfect Christmas tree.  We came home and decorated it that night.  On Sunday, we took some portraits in front of the tree and celebrated Great-Grandma Roberts' 91st birthday as well.  Jolene also finally beat her cold - thank goodness!  Jolene has also been showing a lot of interest in solid foods, so she ate her first rice cereal on Sunday.  My girl is getting so big!
