 Fun with Andrew, one of Amelia's best friends:

 Making slime:
 Amelia begged to take the training wheels off her bike, so we tried it with her old smaller bike. This is about as long as it lasted:

 Amelia loves the Calico Critter playset she got from Robyn for her birthday:

 We got a box of hand-me-down Lego friends (girl legos) from a family at church:

 After all these years of parenting I figured out on cold day I can move my car outside and sit in a sun-warmed car while the kids play:


Gavin turned 10! We celebrated with a really fun Super Bowl birthday party with friends.

 One warm February Saturday we took a trip to Massee Lane Gardens:

 Amelia has taken to playing in our big bathtub while I clean the bathroom:
 Jake got all gussied up for a work event:

The rest of January...

 January 17 was a snow day! I posted the following picture on facebook with these captions:
4:50am: kids wake us up yelling "wake up, wake up! It's snowing!" It wasn't snowing.
Current situation: Gavin has his coat on ready to play in the snow. Amelia fell back asleep. Still not snowing. 
Immenent threat of snow in the south is a big deal!
 Snowing at 6:15. It's too cold, he came back inside. :

  Amelia is running around singing "it's snowing for my first time ever, yah yah yah."

 Three days later the snow was long gone and it was warm enough to take a family nature walk:

 Jan 21 Amelia started Sunbeams! She loves her class and her teachers.
