January was as good, crazy and busy month. One of the Fridays the girls had some friends over for a late night. They played some games and decorated cupcakes.
Lewis wanted more "minions" aka M&M's on his.
We also made a resolution this year to take our kids on more one on one dates. Sophia's turn came first. She wanted to go ice skating but it wasn't open so we settled for roller skating, some arcade games and Yogurtland! Sure love this cute girl!
One Sunday after church Lilly wanted to make fortune cookies. We filled them with fortunes and unfortunes.
They didn't turn out quite as expected but they still tasted good!
That same day these 2 came dressed up like this. They crack me up!!
Lilly had a dance recital a few weeks ago. It was part of a fireside her studio puts on every year and they dance to "I Am A Child of God". She did great and it was beautiful!!
Sophia has this hamster head ring and Mabel felt like he needed a body. She seriously cracks me up!
on Martin Luther King Jr. Day there was no school which resulted in this epic blanket fort.
Yikes. Luckily the girls cleaned it up by themselves (mostly).
We also were lucky enough to tag along with my brother and his family to tour the new Provo temple. It was amazing!!! I absolutely loved it. It was so fun to be in that amazing building again!!
Chocolate anyone? This little boy has been making the biggest messes lately!! He is so good at getting into everything!
He also helped himself to some lipstick the other day. Such a stinker!
The end of January meant February and Valentines Day were coming up so we put up some decor. I made this banner this year and like how it turned out!
The girls had crazy hair day at school a few weeks ago. Sophia wanted her straight up (with the help of a cup)
Sophia did this to Lilly all by herself,
and apparently Mabel wanted to go like this.
Mabel also had a Winter Carnival in Kindergarten and Lewis and I got to go help. It was pretty fun!! They got to do things like read a story in an igloo
and have a snowball fight. It was a cute and crazy day!!
I posted this picture on Instagram to show a tale of two winters. The one on the left is from last year at this time when we looked at this house and the one on the right is this year. We've gotten so much snow. It's nuts!!!
My mom gave me this gorgeous amaryllis around Thanksgiving and it was fun to see it finally bloom. It's definitely helped ease the winter blues/grays!
Finally this little girl brought home her own Willie Worm and needed a picture by him. She'll bring different words home this week so he can get bigger and bigger. She's loving Kindergarten and I couldn't be happier about that!
