Being Brickner : November.

November.

We are eight days into November but it kind of feels like eighty-four.  Waverly got sick for the third time this year already (hello, kindergarten!), and had to stay out of school for four days, we've been battling some time restraints on trying to complete some big projects at the house, and by far most importantly, my family has been focusing on the recovery of my grandfather since his heart surgery on Halloween day.   The surgery didn't go quite as planned, and we had a few scary days afterwards, but I've never been happier to report anything (just about ever!!) than that he is finally awake and on the mend.  We are currently feeling like we witnessed a miracle and certainly have a lot to be thankful for this season.

  The girls have a couple days off school this week, and then it's only one more full school week before one of our favorite weeks of the year -- Thanksgiving!!!!  As a teacher, I have always loved this time of year so much, that half-day on Wednesday is full of so much excitement and anticipation for all the fun (and days off!) that are near.  I have to laugh this time around though, Waverly loves school so much that she gets sad on Sunday mornings when I tell her that the bus isn't coming to pick her up for the second day in a row, so I know she is going to have a hard time with all the breaks over the next couple of months.  Oh sweet girl, how that will change one day.

Sharing some pictures from a few weeks back, when the weather was much warmer and pumpkin patches were still acceptable every weekend.  We have now moved on from sleeveless floral dresses to sweaters and boots and are LOVING IT! 

 

Happy November to you and yours!!!! XO
