January catch up
One of our exchange students moved next door. Our two teenage "only child" exchange students have decided they can be better friends with a little space. We are sad to see her go. It is crazy after just a few months in our house how much she felt like family. We are glad Angelina is still her she is a big blessing. This is Marti up on the table cutting out a pattern of a sweater vest she sewed for a friend. Angelina and I went to my friend Emily's Twilight party. I felt a little dumb not knowing any of the answers to the games but it was fun to get out and watch a movie with girls.
On the first Snow day of this school year we bundled the the kids up and went sledding.

The best thing to do as a family activity in the middle of winter- We reserved a racquetball court over at the rec center and played kickball and just generally had fun throwing/kicking and passing balls.

Don has a wedding reception here in Colorado so we got to hang out with my grandparents, Don and Austin( who goes into the Marines in April)
