Obviously I am way behind since it is the end of December as I am writing this post, but I figured a month at a time was enough to catch up. I visited California for the first time at the beginning of November with a trip to Anaheim. I went with a group from work for the National Career Academy Coalition Conference. We had a pretty good time and got to go see the Hollywood sign, Walk of Fame and Chinese Theater along with Disneyland. More than likely I will be back there next year with students for a DECA conference so it was nice to scope it out and see what I could do with the kids. 
ODU Basketball was in full swing and we try not to miss any games!
While I was in California my beautiful niece Rowan Olivia was born. I was devastated not to be here on her birthday, but my sister did great and I've spent lots of quality time with Rowan since! She is perfect and I love her so much. I am so excited to be an Auntie!!!

Another grand baby for grandma to play with!
The month was pretty busy with school and work and of course it ended with Thanksgiving. We had dinner with Auntie Ann, Theresa, and Laurie and then had our annual scavenger hunt. Everyone ended up back at my house for dessert and I was the judge of the contest. It was very stressful and I think next year I will play instead of judge!

Just part of the desserts we shared :)
We spent the weekend with my family in Williamsburg and went to Christmas Town at Busch Gardens to start out the holiday season! We even started our shopping at the outlets and got some great deals.
