Quick January Recap

Hello there! I haven't dropped off the face of the earth-I've just been taking a little break from editing photos/blogging so as to fully enjoy my evenings. Erik and I have gotten sucked into this- it's so good!- and I finally read this- which I highly recommend. This was also a great book.

So here's a quick catch-up of January in pictures- tomorrow I'll post our February doings so that I'll be all caught up as March begins.

So this January-

Nora did some accordion playing


Some crafting- one day she wanted to make a duck


and one day she made a Princess wand with her Grandma


and she did a lot of her own "decorating" with stickers (eg, sticking them to every available surface)

She had pajama day at preschool- her favorite day of the year so far. They played Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed and ate cinnamon toast for a snack.


She started sleeping with most of her stuffed animals- copying a character in this book (I am ashamed to say this isn't all she has- they seem to multiply weekly. Anyone have any good techniques for narrowing them down?!- all of hers have names and many have distinct personalities so I feel they're like family members and I have a hard time getting rid of any of she always seems to notice when one is missing)


And we all spent a lovely day in Rocky Mt National park


for a winter hike


and some time in the national park gift shop


Luckily she did not ask to take either of the giant stuffed moose (mooses?) home with us-


Back tomorrow!
