 November was spent getting into the Christmas Spirit. Lots of baking and decorating. And we had another birthday! Alethia turned 15! We ended the month up in Maryland with my family to celebrate Thanksgiving. While we were there Deedee took us downtown Fredrick to look at the boats that were all lit up for the holidays. I felt like I was walking around in a Hallmark movie!

I also got the chance to do a concert with our new friends the McCray Brothers as they did a song release worship night. I have no pictures but I'll never forget that powerful night.

Via Friendsgiving 2023

 The kids came and asked if they could host a friendsgiving at our home. We were happy to give the green light. A full house makes super full hearts for these Colony Parents. Rainy and Alehandro even put together a pumpkin carving competition with a surprise for the winner...which ended up being one of our roosters which of course we wouldn't let them take home because we would never do that to their poor parents, but it sure was funny! We did find some old CD's of ours to give away to the winners instead though, and they asked for autographs on the covers, lol.

We even asked everyone to put their phones in a basket so they could be present for the evening (with the exception of taking pictures) and there was no protesting!
