January Wrap Up

January Wrap Up

While getting back into a routine is good after the holidays, it sure is a challenge! I think it takes the whole month of January to get back into the swing of things. It’s been a tough winter so far with super cold weather and a fair bit of snow. Spring seems so far off.

We were at least able to get outside one day a few weeks ago to make a snowman and let Carter try out his new snowball thrower/maker that my mom gave him. As soon as we built the snowman, Carter of course wanted to “smash him down”. Ahhh boys!




We celebrated my husband’s birthday this past weekend. It was quite a bit more laid back than the big “40 Rocks” 40th birthday party we threw for him last year but we still enjoyed dinner with good friends and some family time. Todd is a much better cook than I am, so he did most of the cooking for his birthday dinner making steak, lobster and risotto. I’m one lucky girl!


I did manage to make chocolate lava cakes from scratch. My pictures didn’t turn out that well, but they sure tasted amazing!


I had a lot more on my to do list this month than I was able to accomplish, but at least I was able to finally get some posts up for my handmade Christmas gifts. I have to admit that one thing keeping me from getting things done is my new found addiction with the TV show Downton Abbey. I resisted for a long time and decided on a whim to start watching it. I use Amazon Prime, so the first three seasons are available for free. Darn you Amazon, you are not helping me be productive!
