January Highlights

Both:
You make believe to The Hobbit story line.

Being happy to give our old mail woman a hug.  I was sad to see her for one, last time.

Going to the dump with Daddy and Grandpa. You both enjoyed seeing the big pit and telling me it smelled like trash.

Eden:
Being so excited to sleep on the top bunk.

Wanting to take a picture of the Canadian geese we were seeing fly over our house. “We don’t see those every day.” I found out later it was for National Geographic, and wanting to win a photo contest and go to Hawaii.

Eden: Mom, I agree with Daddy, we need more books.
Me: We can always go to a library.
Eden: We should buy at least two more books.

I can tell when you put the dishes away because there is a pattern to them.

I told Lilah that’s the cutest grumpy face ever, then you looked over at me with your grumpy face. I said,  “No, that’s the cutest grumpy face ever,” and you were pleased as pie.

Lilah:
Forgetting the bottom bunk is now yours.

Not wanting to unpack.

Using the phone to call me from your room to mine. You could have walked and talked to me. They’re suppose to be used for communicating from downstairs to up, or vis versa.

Showing me the fashion show walk, and wiggling your shoulders as you walked.

Being nervous and wanting to talk about auditioning for a youth orchestra. We’ll see if you’re ready come May.

Eating breakfast with a serving spoon because we were out of regular spoons.

Jon:
Trying to entice me to spend the night at the new house, before the big move,  by having the internet turned off at the hold house then turned on at the new house a couple days before. I think you just wanted a big camp-out for some reason.

Being organized for the move. Everyone loved our color coded boxes, and most things got put where they needed to be. Why we found the spices in the master bathroom,  under the sink, I’m not sure.

Enjoying your short commute to work.

Being my “Mr. Fly Lady,” and cleaning house.

I told you I wasn’t a plant person. It was a revelation to me, but you told me you already knew that. I like flowers, I just don’t like plants. They’re suppose to live, but they always die.

Thinking about getting me a smart phone as an anniversary present. Debating which one we should get.

me:
“We have a coat closet. We can use it for coats!” Then Jon brought his old mission coat down to put in it, and I wasn’t happy. It’s suppose to be for current coats, not old coats.
