Okay, here's what we've been doing in January...
January 5th - Grandma D's table was delivered on a truck from Michigan!
She is moving out of her condo into a smaller apartment and was getting rid of some furniture - we are So happy to have this table in our home! It was purchased by Philip's great grandparents so we are the third generation of Philip's family to own it, and our kids are the Fifth generation to sit at it! =)
It is beautiful (and can fold out and have leaves added to be HUGE!) I will have to post more pictures of it soon.
January 7th - a random picture of most of my CC class painting with egg/chalk paint (that we made with mortar and pestles) while studying the artist, Giotto.
A photo to preserve the memory of this beautiful nativity artwork Moriah created all on her own
Keenan and Moriah's egg paint artwork from CC
January 12 - I found $40 in the pocket of a pair of pants I had just bought at a thrift store for $3.99!
After about a week of de-cluttering Every part of our house, this is what we had to give away!
It has felt SO good to have all of that out of our house!
(I may do a post on this soon)
On a warmish day, the kids used the silly string they got in their stockings =)
One Saturday morning, Moriah had a tea party with two of her friends, Jillian and Tam and their dolls =)
Here are the beautiful princesses
Pretty in red!

Time for lunch!
How we found the boys sleeping when we got home after a date one night =)

From the 18th to the 20th, we had the honor of hosting our friend, Ben, and his friend, Prince Bosco, a member of the Tutsi royal family in Rwanda!
Random snap from when Treyson spent a day with us =)
Caleb and an alien he made
On Tuesday, I took a few quick snaps of baby Esther, my friend Becca's new baby =)
Well, that about catches us up on the random things - I have a couple other posts from events in between here that I will get up soon....
