January's march....

January is marching along...not as fast as I'd like it too, but, marching it is! It's not a secret that I do not like January. It's such a blah month compared to the festivities of the previous month. That's my opinion...so happy not everyone shares it!!

No school today. We are having a good day. Aidan asked me to watch a movie with them. How could I refuse that request? even though it was a monster movie....not my favorite =) He assured me that the Monster was a great guitar player and he couldn't help but dance when he and his Dad and sister had a movie night on Saturday. The movie was Monster in Paris (or something like that) and it was really good!

The are now playing and playing and just had a snack. I love these kids!

I also love these two....


Brinley Hope, you cutie!


They have my heart ♥


We watched the  football games at Marcy and Scott's house.
It's always a good time when we are together!



Saturday was a lazier day for us. Dale and I went to my sister Mary Ellen's house in the mornig. She needed Dale to hang a piece of art. I did some cleaning in the afternoon. We later went to see Dale's sister and mother. From there were were planning to go to Outback for dinner. I tried calling ahead, but to my dismay, they had a 1 1/2 hour wait time and weren't even taking call ahead for about an hour! I tried calling Chili's. Kept getting a busy signal. When I did get through, it was the same story as Outback. And I also tried JB Dawson's....same song and dance! Soooo, I tried TGI Friday's. At first they said a 2 hour wait time but while I was still on the phone,  the fella on the other end said it would be a 30 minute wait! Yes! I called Gina who was waiting at work for Kim to pick her up to tell them to head around the corner to the other side of the mall for Friday's. We had a great time and a delicious dinner even though it was a challenge to find a table. The busyness around Lancaster had to do with a HUGE girls volleyball tournament.

While we waited for our table, we decided to go see Christy at work (at the mall). Ellen tried on glasses.....

She LOVED these!
Yellow is her favorite color.
She tried on others. but came back to this pair every time!

She liked these, too.

Ellen will be getting a new pair of glasses 
but we will have to go back to do some serious looking another time.
It's always so much fun to try new frames!


We walked through a home yesterday. We really liked it! I thought we would ♥  It's one I had my eye on for some time.

We are to be getting snow tomorrow. Fun. (as long as I don't need to be out in it!!)

Blessings to you today! Stay warm and dry!

Always great to catch up with your weekend activities, Doris. Ellen was a great model, but I preferred the second red pair vs. the yellow. We are forecast fr some snow as well!

Ellen is very pretty in either pair. John and I both just purchased new glasses. Lots of fun trying new ones on.
You all are in my prayers.
Thanks for sharing such cute pics!

January is one of my favorite months! A time for reflection and planning. It's also my birthday month and I try to celebrate all month long!!

We are having snow right now so it is on the way to you.

Best,

Ellen is precious! Love looking at new frames, I just don't change mine very often! With contacts, I only use the glasses when the contacts come out:)

Hope you all find the perfect house for your family! Just keep looking, just keep looking:)

Have a blessed and beautiful day dear friend, HUGS!
