January Happenings

Well it has been an eventful month but I have been a terrible blogger so I am going to try to summarize. During this month Jackson went back to Preschool with Mrs. K and also started with Grandma Cheryl who does 6 classes for preschool kids that her 6th graders put on. He and all the Posse go ( which are his cousins that are the same age) he had such a fun time for his first one, though it was a little stressful for me since it was from 9-11 in town, and then I had to drive right back home to take him to Mrs. K's at 11:45 but it was worth it since I know he loves it. This month we also went to the Zoo, I think this is the first time we have ever gone when it was such cold weather but it was so much nicer than the heat stroke we normallly get. The Zoo trip was quite an adventure, we drove with Jill, luckily, or it would have been a LONG boring ride. I think it took us nearly 2 hrs. from Jill's house which is in Chandler not QC. We got lost a million times and at one point were as far North as Peoria at the Point South Hilton. We eventually got there and stayed longer than usual since we were so slow. Hudson had a blast he loved when he could see the animals and especially the Spider Monkey place where you get to go in a get right next to them, he kept pointing at them and laughing. It was a fun day but hopefully next time it won't be ALL Day. Also for the first time I learned how to make bread and I made some. Jill invited me over for a Bread day to teach me the ways. We started off by grinding the wheat and then she taught me how to do it, I don't know how good I did but they turned out Yummy. I hope I can keep it up. Ever since we got married Stephen has been asking me to make homeade Wheat bread so I guess it is about time. I also got an Amish Bread starter and just made that a couple of days ago, also very good and way easy. I hosted Bunko this month and made Cheese fondue and had a chocolate fountain. Yesterday some of my friends from High School came over and we were able to hang out and talk with the kids running around it was a great day. This month has been great, my goal next month is to blog more.

Sarah's Nonsense said...

Wow...when you condense it all into one post like that you sound like SuperWoman getting everything done all at once. Maybe you should do it more often! But then...everyone would miss it if you stopped posting frequently forever!

Katie Peterson said...

I am totally laughing about how you got lost tyring to find the zoo...I think that has happened to me more than a couple times. I hear ya about being in the car all day long...I remember those days...your such a good mom to do that for your kiddos!

Scott, Emilie, and Sterling said...

Hey girl. I was just wondering ... if you looked at a map of Thatcher, could you remember where all the places we used to go are? I was looking on google earth trying to remember everything and I am so bummed that I can't seem to find anything. Anyway, if you get a chance, give me a call. It's been way too long! Miss you -- xoxo

Jaime said...
