Ready set go...

I would say Steven and I have had bit of bitterness stored within our hearts!  We have struggled this January!

But, looking back we survived!  We had the stomach bug, starting with Jamie and it left when Mimi left! But, it took some creative adjusting to cover those sick days!
Steve...stayed on top of this, keeping the the germs at bay...but went over board wearing this get up!
At times we switched rooms...Jamie did not like the pink bedding!
We have had Strep throat...and Lil had her first cold!
The Schwartz bus rolled in for a weekend trip!  The girls are growing into beautiful ladies!  They are so loving and it has been so long since our last visit!

We got in a few games and dessert...American Girl Dolls were top on the to do list and a battle of super heros in the backyard was another major must!

Steven really got into to this game, he cooked a yummy breakfast while we squeezed in a game if Apples to Apples!
As always...until next time!  We are playing our next adventure!  We wish Joel & Chrissy much wedding bliss!

Aubrey got her cookies delivered...she loves visiting her favorite customers!

 We can't miss the snow!!  We did not get much, more ice than anything!
Thanks to Jenn for sharing while I worked!

Last I will share Aubrey's fun photo!  This is house down the road with a frozen van! Aubrey and Jamie were amazed at how this could happen!

Little Lil 3 month

Lillian is such a joy!  She has done well with daycare! Only one cold with ear infection!  
She loves her bath time!  She loves to kick in the water!
We get a kick out of her funny faces!
This is a common face..."Turtle Lips" is what we say!
All round, she is a happy girl!
When I was pregnant I sat this aside in hopes of another girl!  I took a picture of this and sent it to my dear friend Melissa!  She quickly replied...that boy will look cute in it!  I am happy this darling little girl gets to wear this!  My grandmother made this for me!
Her she is wearing a beautiful hat that Monica made, she is soooo talented!!
Now we are moving on to four months!

A little catch up.

So Thursday, I ran and got the girls while I left Jamie resting!  After I picked up Aubrey I glanced beside me and this is who I saw, this beautiful wise child.  Where did she come from?
While I got diner going she worked on homework.
After diner she read to Lil while I checked on Jamie, she is such a big help!
Friday, we were still fighting this bug from the other end...and where cleaning like crazy!  Jamie even got a new toothbrush!  No more yucky germs!!
Lil is just like the other Pollies...I find her things out place too!  She fits right in!
Aub has spent a lot of time at my sink avoiding germs!  Oh boy, when the 10 year old moves in on your space!
Heating up bottles has been a creative challenge at times...
but she is a happy girl...really! Lol!
This weather has been nuts!  
Gymnastics has been a challenge for sweet Aubs, but she is hanging in there!

Lil has moved into her room and we seem to be moving in the right directions as far as sleeping through the night!
