1. On Thursday it was Thanksgiving and my birthday, the weather was beautiful, so we went into the outside and hiked around Lone Elk Park. We saw elk and deer and lots of woodpeckers!
2. As we walked around Lone Elk Park we stopped for coffee and tea from flasks by the side of the lake and watched the turtles sunbathing on a log peeking out of the lake.
3. Roses and birthday cards! Yay for birthdays.
4. This weekend, we scored this funky monkey record player from an antique mall. It works and came with the single on it! All of my records are in the UK, so I will need to get on the look out for records to play, hello Goodwill!
I am joining in with Isabel at Nanjing Nian for this week’s One+Four=Life, check out her fab blog for an insight into life as a western student in China.
The kids had a very short school week because of the Thanksgiving break, they had Wednesday through Friday off. We watched movies – ‘Shaun the Sheep’ and ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’ and we baked some Christmas cake and made some mincemeat for mince pies.
December starts tomorrow! Happy Monday x
