So we have placed our feet firmly into 2017. January has come and gone (and at this point February is quickly going the same way). But what, exactly, did we do in January? Chinese New Year fell on January 28th this year. You can take a peek at our celebrating of the start of the Year of the Rooster HERE. We had a wee bit of snow, but nothing exciting…
The only snow structure we managed to make!
OH! We helped Darcy celebrate her birthday with dinner out and cake.
This meant we also got to see our godson Anthony play indoor soccer (they won, as usual).
I spent A LOT of time at the YMCA.
This in turn meant the kids spent A LOT of time at Cluby.
Slightly out of season but someone donated house kits for the kids at club.
Waiting for swimming lessons.
We took our Christmas money from Grandma and Grandpa Mike and spent it on some new clothes.
Even luckier than the clothing sale… a pretzel sale!
Did lots and lots of learning. Mostly in the sunshine on the floor.
Cousin Robbie came for an overnight visit.
And I crocheted up a storm.
Yarn was purchased and a hat requested… not half bad!
Snuck some cross stitch in here too.
Ken, Renee, Chris and myself all went out to Matt’s Bar for Juicy Lucy’s.
We also visited a rather amazing display of quilts… I wish this one had photographed better. It was amazing.
Flat Stanley came to visit as well.
It was a rather social month, but it was also a very education heavy with as much time spent outside as possible. Even from simply looking back at the images I have collected, I feel we started the year off positively. Smiles, friendship, knowledge and fun. What more could I ask for?
Church down the road.
Emanuel is growing his hair out to donate!
