More on January...

WOW! I can't believe that this month has come to an end. I was reading a few posts on facebook by someone who kept wishing this month away. One thing I love about living here is the diversity and weather changes etc. I can't imagine wishing the month away. Here are some things I love about January -

1)I love the quietness of January. I love the cloudy skies and peaceful, restful feeling it lends
2)I love a good snowstorm. My children have loved playing in the snow. I love it too as well as watching them!
3)I love hot chocolate after coming in from a chilly day or evening.
4)I love pink faces when they come in from outside.
5)I love the sun when it peeks through a January cloudy sky or just a beautiful sunny day that makes the snow look sprinkled with glitter.
6)I love the feeling of newness and renewal as I recommitt or set new goals

This is what you get when your hubby and 13 yr old son run up to Evanston to grab a "few" fireworks to set off on New Years Eve!

We added these new appliances! The kids loved watching the clothes spin in the windows. One day I washed Abby's beloved teddy bear and when she discovered it spinning in the window she stood there and cried!

Part of the fun in January is enjoying all the new Christmas toys and joys. The kids got some pellets that tint the bath water. They love tinting the water!

We went to the aquarium this month! We NEVER tire of going to the aquarium. I'm sure there will be more pictures to come each month of this event!

Hey Mary, I don't really hate January. I just like February better! Didn't mean to be a downer. Really just having fun. Tate was born in January, so it really is a great month!
