Wow!  I can't believe it is the last day of January already.  January, along with February, are usually the l o n g e s t months of the year for me.  The holidays are over and we are stuck with the cold and yuck for several more months.  But the days are busy and the months seem to be cruising along.  Here are some simple moments captured during our busy day.

I LOVE lazy Saturday mornings
where we get to just ... be!
Be together.
There is nothing better.

Where's Lyla?

Monday is laundry day.
The job that never ends!
Often times it seems that it is filling the baskets faster that I can wash it!
But it's not that bad...
it could be the bathroom
or the kitchen floor!
I despise cleaning the bathroom...
and mopping!
And at least I have some company! {grin}

January 10th

Collin has recently discovered a love for legos.  He received some money for Christmas and decided that it was time to spend it...on legos!  I took him to the store after school and he spent the rest of the day creating his lego masterpiece only stopping long enough to eat!
