January Recap

9:39 pm by Janelle. Filed under: News

Well, since today is the last day of January and I have only posted one thing I thought I might tell a little bit about the month of January. I like January. We’ve had some lovely weather. Rainy days have come here and there…some days I have claimed it to be FREEEEZING, but that’s just me being wimpy. I mean, Utah? Come on. Living there was cold. This is nothing. Who cares about the weather though? Why am I writing about it? …Let’s move on to slightly more exciting things.

On New year’s eve we went to the snow. Preston had a lot of fun. Ada was cold but we all still had a great time! The snow was pretty dry so our square snowman was the best we could get! The scouts (who we tagged along with) attempted an igloo. Again, the snow was so dry, it didn’t really work out! But Preston liked hanging out in it!

Little Miller turned 1 and Kelsey threw an ADORABLE monster party for him.

On the 15th was the birthday of my lovely, most awesome-mother-in-law-in-the-world! Also that day was my beautiful Grandma Strazzo’s birthday.

Later in the month we held a surprise party for my grandparents who both recently turned 80! Surprise parties are AWESOME! The suspense, the looks on their faces…just the best! They thought they were attending some fancy dinner and auction to benefit children with diabetes…good story uncle Mike. But the best part for me was after they walked in and after the greetings died down I asked grandpa, “how are you doing?” and he relpied, with a big grin on his face, “Really good. I’ve never been better.” Made me happy :)

I also turned a year older…27. Wow. Feels weird. I’m sure it just gets weirder. Thank you to everyone who made it an awesome day!

Today is my fantastic sister-in-law Amy’s birthday…HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!

And it has been a good month. Full of birthdays and partying. What a great way to start out the year!

Seven months today!

12:01 pm by Janelle. Filed under: News

Our little Ada is 7 months old today! I love taking pictures each month…I wish I would have done this with Preston!!

She now has two little teeth, says “dada” (not really to Shaun, though we like to pretend she does), fake coughs after someone coughing, crawls and pulls herself up onto furniture, loves her brother and thinks he is hilarious, and she is just a doll and we love our Sue! (She has many nicknames at this point…names revolving around “Sue” come out most these days!)

Our Christmas

1:03 am by Janelle. Filed under: News

Here is our Christmas in a few pictures…

I would write more but

a) it is almost 1 am (why am I still up?) and

b) I rarely read all of what people write anyway! Oops…I mean…I do…….read some…

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! We missed all of our family that we didn’t get to see!!! And New baby Jack who we really want to meet!
