January's goings on

January has been a very busy month for us so far. I anticipate that the rest of the year will be as well. I laughed when people told me how busy I would be as my children got older because I couldn't imagine being any busier than I already was.........I was getting NO sleep with Norman working so far away from home and a baby and a seemed never ending.......but now sometimes I long for those LOOOOONG days at home with nowhere to go ;)
School is going good. If we stay on this track, we may get a small break this summer after all. I had told Norman that we were just going to work through the summer, taking time off for camp and any trips, but I think that we may be able to swing a couple of weeks off in addition to those. The boys need to keep up the good work though.

We went on a field trip to the Crawford County Historical Society and the Oblong Oil Field Museum. The Historical society is in a big old hospital. The building is very neat. I think that I enjoyed looking at it as much as anything.

Winter finally arrived here with some cold air and a little snow yesterday. I let the boys play outside in the flurries in the morning with the promise of completed school work later. They held up their end of the bargain and we finished our day with some time at the library last night. Gregory is beginning to read chapter books :)

Would you believe that our Christmas tree is still up????? I told you I have been busy :) We are hoping to get it taken down this week. I was kidding Norman about putting bunny ornaments on it for can tell that he is a MAN....he thought that it sounded like a great idea!

We also celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary on Jan. 13th. We were able to go out for nice dinner (TGI Friday's) and a movie......

I am almost finished with another shawl for Aunt B. I have half of the fringe left to put on. I will try to finish it on Saturday. I started the cutest little pink scarf for myself. It is made out of eyelash yarn and a base yarn. I made several others and gave them away for Christmas gifts, but this one is for me. I have 5 baby gifts that I need to get done sometime this year.....with more to come I am sure :) I think that I am going to try a least a couple of sweaters/jackets rather than my standard blankets. We will see.....if the first one goes bad I will go back to blankets :)

We will be starting our first round of fertility treatments soon. Please keep us in your prayers as we pray to recieve more of God's precious little blessings.
