LATELY : : JANUARY 2018

We started the new year (Day one. Right after breakfast.) with a cold weather hike. Refreshing, but really just made us all eager for the middle months of the year…

We attended our monthly game night with our favorite folks and this time it fell on Lolo’s birthday! She’s FIVE now!

That same weekend, I got some time to catch up with the most fabulous of ladies, our very own Aunt Kathy. She’s so cool. AND, Morty, who I always call Marty. Sorry, bud.

We went to Menards and Walmart too many times. But, our home renovations are moving along nicely!

 

Mae had her final appointment for her foot issues and we took the chance to spend a couple days in St. Peters with my mother-in-law. We read books aloud at Barnes and Noble, found Mae a new coat and dresses for Ben’s wedding. Birds and stones and whatnot…

We traveled to Alabama for Ben’s wedding – where they got to wear those new dresses and bond with their new cousins.

Zack went on his annual cold weather float with two of his all-time favorite people while we were up in St. Peters.

If it’s possible, I believe Miss Maybe became more of a momma’s girl and sadly, (sadly!) less of a cat lover. Not thrilled about that last bit. (Not thrilled!)

We had several snow falls and it was mega cold with days where the air felt like knives. Thankfully, the girls and I can stay indoors where it is warm, but often they would brave the cold for the sake of getting outside more days than not.

Yesterday, public school was actually closed due to cold temperatures. As usual, this man spent his day off at work, gettin’ stuff done.

I am so glad January is over if for no other reason than I can now say, we have finished one month of winter and spring is that much closer which means summer is that much closer and I’m officially getting ahead of myself.

I hope January treated you all well – if you’re interested, you should check out last January! Zack and Rae wore very different hairstyles and our house layout had yet to change! So much change is just one year.
