November officially kicked off the holiday season and I packed our calendar full of Thanksgiving festivities, tree lighting ceremonies and listening to carolers. Clearly, I got swept up in all of the holiday cheer and failed to pull out my phone and snap photos of our adventures. Therefore, you will have to bare with me this month as our November photos are sparse.
This year Ian and I are thankful that our drive to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family was cut down by one hour! Just another perk of moving to Milwaukee! This year we filled our holiday with a competitive round of Jenga, delicious food and an afternoon walk to enjoy the sunshine.
After some quality family time Ian and I drove home for a week packed with festive activities. We attended two tree lighting ceremonies, a German Christmas market and listened to carolers at the mall. Luckily, November was quite warm this year, so we didn’t have to battle the cold to enjoy these events.
We ended November by decorating our Christmas tree. It’s been a family tradition to have the nativity be the first ornament on the tree. Last year my sister gifted Ian and I this ornament so we could keep the tradition alive in our home. What holiday traditions do you have? Leave them in the comments below!
