January 2013 in Review

What can I say, January is over. I'm not a fan of winter, so January and February in Nebraska are my least favorite months. I would be happy not leaving the house from New Years Day until April 1. Really, it is just too cold. But, I can't be a hermit like Chris (ha ha). Chris has been working his butt off from home. He did not have to take a Florida trip this month, but he still had to put in those 13 hour plus days, weekends included. He is just a shadow of the man I loved a year ago. We are hoping this month will bring us hope. I know, hope in the month of February? Anything is likely.

January was filled with play dates, playing in the snow, and keeping warm over a movie. Asher is now in montessori preschool as well as preschool at our Catholic Church. He is really enjoying it and learning a lot. He also started a preschool class at the La Vista Library that is enjoys taking with his friends Maggie and Mackenzie. We joined the La Vista Library for a whopping $55 a year. This will be the last year I will spend money on a community library. That is just insane! But, for now, the kids are happy with the new books that are reading now.

Asher likes to be with his friends during the week when he is not in school. We love to go to open play at the Kids Body Shop in Papillion. He runs and gets out all his little boy energy. We need more places like that! We look forward to getting back to the zoo and the other places we enjoy going when the weather is not so cold.

Alivia joined Girls on The Run and is excited to get started running with her friends in March (We may have a runner in the family!). Addison is still getting sick a lot. Her doctor thought she may be suffering from abdominal migraines. For now, we are just watching her oral intake and making sure she does not eat anything that can cause her to get sick. Believe me, we wish we knew! Addison really keeps busy with her friends and continues to keep the house LOUD! :) Addi turned 6 1/2 years old this month, too.

As for me, I am just trying to keep warm and look for rainbows. I'm hoping to find one both this month!

So, I guess, bring on Febraury, and with that...bring on HOPE! We are here, waiting, for our new future.

Here are a handful of January Pictures.
