Not too much happened around here in January except a very special
We had the family over for her party and we had made cupcakes to decorate and eat. I don't think anyone decorated theirs, but we had fun eating them. Lillie chose French dip sandwiches, fries, and salad for her party meal. Not a hit with the younger set, but the adults loved it!
Lillie asked for money this birthday because she was saving for an ipod touch and a mission trip to Nicaragua. Her uncle got pretty creative with his gift!
And thankfully we got to have her best friend who lives in Alaska visit the weekend of her party! I mean, what a friend! To come all the way from Alaska to help you celebrate. Well, she was already over here visiting family, but we still were pretty thrilled she got to stay with us for a few days. They cooked supper one night.
Oh, and one other thing. That wintry weather I mentioned left a little snow and ice for the girls to enjoy. And I know some of you are chuckling about the wintry weather. For the deep south this is considered wintry weather. Anything where temps drop under 50 is wintry to us.
In other news, Alexander tried to learn to read. Still not there, but soon. And he tried out his johnny jump-up. He was not much of a fan, but he has warmed up to it since.
So, that was January. Maybe sometime soon I'll move on to February. But don't hold your breath!
