Where did November go?

Harrison trying to enjoy both his binkies!

Our little "handy manny."

Wigs from post halloween sales!

Claire after getting her last princess crowns and the wig she chose as a prize!
**NOTE** this picture of Claire was taken while she was still numb from having dental work. Her lop-sided smile makes me laugh and warms my heart because she was so happy to have a new wig but still really sore from the work. Claire is a unique child that I adore and can make me hit both ends of the emotional spectrum in seconds!
I can't believe tomorrow is the last day of November. It has been a world wind month for us. Friday the 6th we (John) was offered a position with Parker back at the SLC plant. He accepted the position so begins our transition back to the West. John left that same weekend to start the new job. He will be spending two weeks at a time at the two locations until March 1st. Then he is full time in SLC. Now it is my job to get the house ready to list and hopefully have it sold by then.
Here are a few pictures of what did happen in November.

Halloween night

The Curnutt kids together

Harrison the snotty Tiger (he has a cold right now)

We had a full week of Halloween celebrations. Wednesday we went to 2 festivals at 2 different baptist churches, Thursday was Claire's school party, Friday was the festival at Emily and Abby's school, the festival on SFA campus and the church trunk or treat. Saturday was the city of Nacogdoches Scare on the square and trick or treating. By the end our kids had more candy then they would ever need. They had a great time and loved it all. The older girls are growing up and wanted to trick or treat with their friends so Abby went out with her friend Jamie and Emily went out with her friend Maisy. I just had Claire and Harrison to trick or treat with their friends Maya and Toby. It was a great night!

Carving Pumpkins

Since Halloween was on Saturday this year we were able to carve pumpkins during the day. It was a beautiful day so I set the table up outside and we got to work carving our pumpkins. The girls all chose to do the special carving patterns. Emily and Abby did most of the carving themselves and John helped claire with hers. Harrison had fun playing outside while I cleaned and carved his pumpkin.
We tried to get him to help but he took one look and asked to get down. It was lots of the fun and they looked great all lit up that night!
