January was a great month here. The weather was perfect just about every day. It would have been nice to have a little bit of rain, but when you live in the desert your expectations are low.
We gave Chloe some pigtails for church. She is so tiny that she can fit right in the sink in our bathroom. Not sure that is quite right! She is starting to grow a little though.
A little Sunday evening cookie fun. I always just use flax seed mixed with water instead of the egg because these little monsters can really chow down on the dough. Chloe is getting in on the action these days too. Looks like Sterling is enjoying the diversion in the background too!
We found this “teddy bear” bread at walmart which Sam spotted right away and we had to buy it. Its perfect for my big teddy bear boy.
These two boys play non stop for hours every day. I am so glad they have each other. They have really gotten into imaginative play lately and its funny to hear them making their transformers having little conversations. This was before we broke out the legos that they got for Christmas. I needed to show Max how to get building with them but it was love at first sight and he spends hours a day building things. Cars are his favorite. Well, I should be more specific, outrageous moster truck mighty machines are his favorite creations.
A little valentine home evening game. Grandma, we have been using the hand me down lessons very faithfully. Those candies were included for the game, not sure how old they were. I think one may have gotten eaten!
Belle does computer programing for some of her homework. She does most of her homework by herself but I delegated checking up on her to someone a little more capable. I think this was the day she had to miss school because she was throwing up in the night. Her and Max were briefly sick that night and I was sure we were in for some terrible illness. Don’t be jealous but I think it might have just been heat related since it was really warm and they played tag for hours at the park after school. I sanitized just about everything possible the next day and starved everyone with a diet of crackers, toast and gingerale and luckily nothing further came of it. We had just come off of a two week long cold so we were happy to escape this.
