Hello January!
I know that it has been January for over 3 weeks already, obviously I'm not quite on the ball with reflecting that change in my blog...here's to a new year and doing a better job keeping up on my blog!

Last week it snowed Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday!  The kids L.O.V.E.D. it!!  and you can only imagine the joy when I told them on Friday school was cancelled- Addison and Laynie cheered...and Hailey cried.  She only goes to school 2 days a week, so when it's NOT her day to go she is so sad...that sadness was multiplied of course on a day she was supposed to go, but couldn't! Poor Hailey.

 Here is a picture from the morning of the snow day, all the kids snuggled under a blanket and Addison was reading to them...holy cow, it was so cute.  Mothering has some great moments...

 For some reason I love this picture...it's so sad but so cute at the same time!  Maren has had a little bit of a rough go.  She now has 4 teeth!! and her first only poked through about 6 weeks ago, so 4 teeth in 6 weeks is no fun (I'm assuming).  But, she has learned how to scoot all around and pick up any little gross thing off the floor and eat it! so life isn't all bad for her!

This is how I spent my time on the snow day!  Thanks for all the great ideas Pinterest!!! I just love copying other people's cute ideas and getting compliments on them :)

Other highlights from January include Addison and Laynie starting piano lessons, hearing Elder Holland speak at our stake conference, and making homemade bread 3 weeks in a row! (with freshly ground wheat, might I add...thank you Blendtec!!)
Kelly is out of town this week and I miss him!  I have been especially grateful for our marriage lately, and not only because he's taking me on a 7-day cruise in 6 weeks...but also because he's seriously amazing.

What? did I say amazing? yeah, I'd say this beach  falls under that category...6.more.weeks.
