In the blink of an eye

In the blink of an eye January has flown by! 

I want to keep up - 
I want to record our every day lives- 
Some days are busy- 
Most are filled with lots of ordinary things 

Here it is a slice of what January has been like for us. 

The tree is gone and the house is back to normal. We still see some houses with lights up and every time we see these houses Lia asks "when will it be Christmas at our house?"  Please people I beg you - take down your decorations! It's confusing to a certain 4 year old Christmas lover--- Pretty please!!!! 

We are still in princess mode 
In fact there may be a princess themed birthday party in Lia's near future! 

We had our first beautiful big snow fall 

And then moved on to sunny warmer days- oh Ohio!! 

Speaking of Ohio - did you hear the one about the Buckeyes beating the Ducks!?

LadyBug girl returned 

And sometimes the only thing that can make your feel better is a Frosty from Wendy's!! 
That's a quick January overview- lots of indoor activities and little things that fill our days with fun!

And what a Christmas it was!

I think celebrating with a 4 1/2 year old at Christmastime is the BEST! 
We had so much fun seeing the joy and wonder and excitement with Lia this year. 

This Christmas;  

We watched Charlie Brown and Frosty more times than I can count 

Lia really understood everything about Christmas this year. 

We baked cookies for Santa 

And waited patiently for him to arrive! 

 And arrive he did! Just look at that tree! 

Santa left a note and the magic key next to the cookies and milk! 
It was so exciting and magical 
(The magic key gets Santa in our front door - we do not have a chimney) 

We celebrated with family 

We said Happy Birthday to Oma and Jesus! 

Our house has been messy, loud and FUN!! 

(And filled with lots of things princess-ey)  

And oh what a Christmas it has been 

Next, a brand new year~ filled with fun, adventure, laughter, peace, hope and love!
