Christmas Break

 We have been enjoying our last full week of Christmas break.  Today is our last day - the girls go back tomorrow and Will Holden starts Wednesday.  Yes - it does seem like we have been out a LONG time! We have enjoyed it but I think we are all ready for structure.  Tomorrow is going to HURT! The girls have been sleeping in and are going to hate getting up early.  

On Monday, Scott's parents left and I had physical therapy for my feet.  (Yes - I did a few sessions - long story).  Then we went and tried out a new pizza place that was having a soft opening - MJ's Pizzeria in Centerton.  It was good.  

We went to LifeWay so Scott could get a new Bible.  Then we checked out pets at petsmart.  


We came home and I pulled this tent out of the attic for the kids to play in.  Scott's mom got this a few years ago but it's so big we just didn't have room for it.  But I pulled it out and they had a great time!

Listen - I don't want y'all to be jealous of how fun and crazy our NYE was.  The girls and I snuggled up and binge watched "When Calls the Heart".  I fell asleep at 9.  Scott and the girls stayed up until around 11:30.  But I was so tired! 

My friend Marci picked me up on Tuesday morning to hit the Dillards New Year sale.  Have y'all been? It's INSANE! Like Disney World has nothing on it.  People are EVERYWHERE.  You can barely move.  I really didn't go in wanting anything.  And I didn't buy one thing but it was fun to go.  We walked down to Sephora and there wasn't one person there.  

The rest of Tuesday looked a lot like this.  This was the middle of Scott cleaning out our pantry.  It looks good now.  January always makes me want to PURGE.  I'm tackling our closets over the next few weeks.  


Wednesday, Hollis went to play with her friend Joseph and I picked up Sarah Kate to spend the day with us.  There is a used book store about 20 minutes from us that a few people told me about.  You can order books online and then pick up.  So we went to pick up the books I ordered.  I got the girls 6 books for $10!!! 

I didn't get it all in a picture but they had a huge Christmas tree made out of books. 

 I got Harper a few Trixie Belden books! They were my favorite.  I think I'm going to have to read them too! 

They filmed a you tube video.  ha! 

Thursday Harper had another friend over to play.  They had a great time.  It's a little hard to have play dates when your little brother wants to be in the middle of things.  

Friday we cleaned and the kids drew and wrote and we stayed in shorts or Pj's.  

We babysat one of our friends' baby for a few hours.  She was PRECIOUS.  My girls were thrilled out of their mind to watch her (with me).  Will Holden wasn't too happy to not be the baby.  

He warmed up to her.  Maybe this will be their first date. ha! 

Saturday it was 60 degrees.  We have been wanting to go ice skating at our sweet little skating rink downtown.  We never had time during Christmas or it was too cold. Saturday was perfect!!! 

Will Holden wanted to skate but didn't love it.  We barely got going and he wanted to quit but we had to make it around the rink to get out.  It felt like it took us 45 to skate one lap. ha! 

Yesterday we had church.  It was in the 60's and we are eating keto so we walked to eat lunch at Flying Fish.  It was so good.  

I love being able to walk to places.  Laurie took Harper roller skating with her girls that afternoon.  She made me want to start going to the roller rink more often.  I LOVE to roller skate. ha! And apparently there is an interesting crowd there. ha! 

We have a long list to conquer on our last free day today but it's been a nice break! It won't be long until Spring break comes!
