We have made it to Thanksgiving break!!! It's been a busy few weeks so I'm thankful to have some down time.  

I've been catching up on all the doctor appointments I have put off for a while due to Covid and just general putting off lately.  I've been to the dentist and had a mammogram.  I've had to make a couple of visits to my OB-GYN because being middle aged is fun.  But thankfully everything is going to be ok.  

I didn't sub this past week because I had appointments and some other work this week so I had time to walk a little downtown.  I used to do this daily after I took Will Holden to preschool but I don't have time for that much anymore so I was thrilled to have a little free time this week.  

I love my little small town square.  

One of my favorite things will always be getting coffee at Onyx and then walking around our downtown.  I did it early one morning and no one was out and it was delightful! 

Hollis is going to play basketball this winter if they get to have a season.  She had a try out one night last week.  I was so impressed - she did really great.  She made almost all of the shots she took.  I feel like Hollis has athletic ability but isn't all that interested but I'm hoping she will like basketball.  

Will Holden got a WAY over due hair cut last week.  He was so shaggy.  

Friday morning, my friends Paige, Laurie and I dropped our kids off at school and drove 2 hours away to Tulsa so we could make a Trader Joe's run.  I have never been and it was so much fun.  We just had the best time visiting in the car.  

We drove over to Utica Square for lunch with no plan and just stumbled upon the best lunch place.  Utica has so many great stores but we didn't have time to shop because we had to get home soon after school got out.  Hopefully we can make another trip soon.  I am SO thankful for these two friends! 

Harper had her two best friends over to spend the night Friday night.  They are the sweetest girls and they have so much fun together.  And they include Hollis which is so sweet.  

They ended up staying all day Saturday.  It was cold and rainy but they wanted to ride bikes.  They insisted on wearing goggles since it was raining.  This age of 10-12 is just such a sweet spot!!! I love it so much! 

Yesterday we went to church and ate lunch downtown.  

The Ormons came over for dinner.  I forced Laurie to watch some of the Crown with me.  I'm obsessed with this newest season.  I love watching Diana.  But I also am so sad for the Royals.  They seem so miserable.  Money and power can't buy happiness.  I'll take my small simple life any day.
