And just like that we are just about out of January. Our week was fairly quiet and very white. :)
I had the honor of documenting a banquet at church, recognizing both the graduates of the Bible Institute and the four individuals being ordained as ministers. One of them is my friend Jen (Hi, Rev. Jen!)
I really like this one of our senior pastor and the special speaker having a good time.
Every mother has seen this face...Mom, pick me up!
Aiden's doing really well with a spoon but I caught him "cheating". (Amanda thought he would look pretty with earrings.)
A little blurry but a classic Amanda face when she's up to something. :)
It snowed a good part of the afternoon and was SO pretty coming down. Shaun had gotten a flat tire the day before so after he fixed it we went out to swap vehicles with him. We made it an adventure outing by stopping for munchkins.
I thought the snow we'd gotten the day before was the storm they'd been calling for. Nope....it was actually the one that came in overnight and dumped 16+ inches in a matter of hours. Shaun was up at 4 am plowing, home for 5 minutes, including a shower and then went to do taxes until late. That left me to shovel. I started in the driveway to clean up what Shaun had plowed and to make it wide enough to open car doors (only on one side of the car). I took a break, went in to help children, etc and when I went out a few hours later, the sidewalk had been snow-blown! I don't even know who did it, but I was so grateful!
These two both get a lot of enjoyment out of this activity and Aiden is sitting for longer and longer stretches of time.
Pop and Kiki took the kids overnight so I could go out since Shaun was working late. They tried to go sledding but there was too much snow! Here they are tag-teaming a very tired Aiden.
Sara and co this week.
