January Wrap-Up

 Some more fun haps in January..... (warning a lot of videos in this post)

Went to a friends Mickey birthday party. Cutest little mice I ever did see. And they pooped out on the way home. Ears on and all.
We had our cousins come over to spend the night one night. These crazies wanted to go fishing in the rain. Good thing Wes was a good sport and took them out. Sadly they didn't catch anything.
 This boy laughs at just about anything and Jovie had him rolling one night.

Actually she gets him going a lot. Don't be fooled though, Peyton gets him laughing pretty good a lot too.

 New couch! I can't even begin to explain how badly we needed a new one. The old one (while it was seriously the most comfortable couch in the world and will be missed) was gigantic in this small room. On top of that it literally had a rip in just about every cushion, the insides were outsides, and there were about 3 holes inside the couch itself that would suck in everything that entered it's domain. We lost a lot of wallets, phones, and remotes to those abysses. We are loving our smaller, more practical couch.

 I have a ton of pictures of just the kids. They aren't usually doing anything special, but because of who they are the pictures are so incredibly special.
This is my favorite video. These two have such a sweet, loving relationship. They both have hearts of gold and can often be found doing sweet things not even knowing anyone is watching them. Like making up songs on our walk to church. I adore having daughters.

Peyton digs the dab.
 Visiting a trampoline park. Peyton was so brave and jumped off this tall thing a few times.

 Playing with our good friends, The McCooks. It's so cute, Paige thinks we are her cousins.
 Here they are putting imaginary make-up on one another.

 Jovie's cute little friend Rubie brought by balloons and this cute little drawing on her b-day.

 Measuring ourselves at Grammy and Papa's house.

 Peyton is such a good (and actually useful) helper with her younger siblings.

I got to help in Peyton's class one day. I took her out to lunch. Well kinda. She was so excited I made her an egg salad sandwich (which is one of her favorites) that even though I offered to take her out to lunch she said she would rather picnic and eat what she had packed. So we headed to a nice parking lot at the base of the "M" mountain trail and ate in the car (it was wet) and watched squirrels and birds while we listened to Disney music and talked. It was actually a great time.

This kid is moving and talking more and more and is just becoming such a big baby rather than an infant.

He's also learning to give kisses, and LOVES to eat.

And on the days we had sunshine we took advantage of it, much to the younger ones happiness.
 Because most days in January looked more like this.

Wes ordered a BUNCH of marketing fliers. So every other week you might see us walking the streets of the area he works passing them out on doors. It takes a long time but it's good exercise. More for Wes than me, because I am constantly having to stop to help the 2 I have in the stroller. I like to pretend I am helping, but it's almost as if Wes is doing it all on his own.. because he basically is.
