November is here and with it comes more family holidays, getting ready to return to work, getting Kivrin ready for her child care center, getting ready for Christmas, trying to write a novel in 30 days — and I thought we were busy before!

I have lots of cute pictures (and video!) from the past week and I’ll get it posted as soon as I can. Kivrin is awake more during the day now, which means I take more pictures, but have less time to share them with you…


This morning we taught Kivrin about elections, beginning with reading about the candidates online and considering our choices. Dan and I went to vote together and just handed the baby off between us so that no one had to vote one-handed. The picture is outside of our polling place – Kivrin is modeling a new outfit from her Gramma Mary.
