November 2021, Recap// Celebrating November’s National Holidays

Hey everyone!!

I’m feeling quite un-inspired about how to introduce and start this post, lol. So I think I’m just going to call this very poor excuse for a paragraph an intro, and just get into it. ๐Ÿ˜‰.๐Ÿ˜

I seriously cannot think of much that happened in November…. So I’ll just think of things as I go, and hopefully come up with some stuff. I’ll also tell you guys about how I celebrated some of November’s National Holidays, so hopefully it won’t be too short a post. ๐Ÿ™‚


My sister Grace, and brother Philip each had a birthday this month. Grace turned 17, and Philip turned 8! ๐Ÿ™‚

My sister, Grace, and I get to be “twins” for a bit each year. Since we were born 11 and a half months apart, we’re the same age for about 12 days!! We took these pictures while we were both 17. ๐Ÿ™‚

Grace, Lizzie and I decided to match plaid turtlenecks for church that day, which was really fun!


Then my 18th birthday happened the next day, which of course, you probably already know about from past posts, so I won’t talk about it here. But I’ll re-post a couple pictures. ๐Ÿ˜€


A few of my siblings and I. ๐Ÿ™‚

This was our family’s Thanksgiving dinner! ๐Ÿ˜€

Bekah and Ruthie did a great job making the rolls!

My youngest siblings and I, while I teach them school. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿฅฐ

And my friend Kyra insists that I share this bit of writing with you all… ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜‚ Basically, while learning about writing good news articles in school, one of my assignments was to write two different news articles about a nursery rhyme, but from two different biased points of view. I chose the old rhyme that says, “Ding dong, pussy’s in the well. Who put her in? Little Johnny Flynn.”๐Ÿ˜‚ Here are my articles. They kind of silly, but they were a lot of fun to write!! XD

And this one is from the opposite bias as the last one. ๐Ÿ™‚

In November, I…

Celebrating November’s National Holidays!!

Before November started, I wrote down all it’s National holidays, so that I could celebrate as many as I could. I was able to get nearly all of them, but I really enjoyed the ones I did get to!!

November 1st – National Cinnamon Day

I made cinnamon toast. Mmm!!

November 2nd – National Deviled Egg Day

November 3rd – National Sandwich Day

We made Patty Melts for supper, which are kind of a mix of a burger and a sandwich… But we’re just calling it a sandwich. ๐Ÿ˜‰

November 8th – National Cappuccino Day

November 14th – Spicy Guacamole Day

I didn’t get a picture, but I did make some!! Yum!!

November 15th – National Clean out Your Refrigerator Day

I should have gotten before and after pictures… You probably don’t want to see the before picture though. It was pretty messy…!! lol!

November 20th – National Peanut Butter Fudge Day

Didn’t get a picture of this either… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But it was so good!!


These were sooo much fun, and I hope to do it again soon!!

I hope everyone had a great November, and that you all have an awesome Christmas season. This is one of my absolute favorite times of the year, and I’m really excited about it! ๐Ÿ˜„ ๐ŸŽ„ โ„๏ธ
