January is almost over!  This month has flown by!

This month I turned 29!  It is official that my twenty somethings are almost over!  My baby is turning one next month and is crawling everywhere when he hasn't pulled himself up next to something!  He melts my heart!  I just love that little guy!

This month has been full of lots of these!  The worst cold/flu has whipped through our whole family!  Which turned into a double ear infection for Lincoln and I have had a sinus infection like it is going out of style!  I am thankful though that we are MUCH healthier than last January!!!  At least when it is cold out like it is you don't mind being snuggled up in your jammies and pulling up your favorite quilt!

This month we have discovered Zooreka!  We love this game!  I LOVE babies!  But I LOVE that my kids are getting old enough to play games like this!  We have had lots of laughs and fun with this game this January!

The snow blower picture is for our wonderful neighbor who without being asked surprises us now and then and snow blows our walk and driveway!  We feel SO blessed to live next to wonderful neighbors on either side of us!

Snow Day

Days like today call for a yummy bowl of homemade soup!  Last night I made Lasagna Soup.  The recipe is from the latest issue of Family Fun Magazine.  I love this magazine!  It has so many cute ideas!  The soup was a hit with its cheesy goodness!  I did modify this recipe a little.  I only used one onion and 1 lb. of italian sausage!  Yummy!

This year Ryan and I were talking about traditions for New Years.  Growing up we always ate chinese.  My kids unfortunately are not too fond of chinese food.  So we made up our own traditions starting this year.  We went out to an Italian restaurant which all of the kids love.  Our other tradition we started was to see a movie at the theater as a family which hasn't happened since the movie Cars was in the theater.  We decided on Bolt and LOVED it!!!  It was a laugh out loud movie!  

My favorite character was Rhino the hamster!!!

Happy New Year!

I can't believe another year has gone by!  My baby is now almost one and Ryan is approaching his final year of school!  I am excited to start off another year, and am so thankful for my family, health and friends!
