HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Wow I can’t believe it is 2015! Looking forward to this year with our family!
3rd-Yesterday Cooper & Bryant went over to Luke’s for his birthday party. They stayed the night over there and had a NERF war today. We came and picked them up in the afternoon and headed to Caleb and Angela’s house for Dustin’s birthday party. We had dinner and dessert there with the whole Martin clan, Adam, & Matt and Amy’s family. After the party we came back home.
8th-Kaylin & Kolby helped me paint the edges of some canvases for a project for Kaylin’s room. After they painted the canvases I Decopodged a picture onto the canvas. They turned out really cute. I will have to show the finished product whenever I get pictures of Kaylin’s room, since we are finished with her room now.
20th-We are finally getting back to BRMRG training after Christmas break and New Years. Tonight was learning about Land Navigation. I’m still pretty nervous about navigation as I just haven’t done it much so don’t have much confidence in myself.
Kolby has gotten where he REALLY enjoys doing puzzles. He is so proud when he finishes up one.
24th-We have started trying new fruit and veggies every so often. This month our new fruit to try was fresh coconut. We weren’t really sure what to do with it. No one was real impressed with just eating it plain. I ended up blending it up in my VitaMix and so then I had unsweetened coconut flakes. Pretty neat.
25th-After meeting today we rushed home and grabbed a bite to eat before Laura, Kaylin & I drove up to Brent and Kirsten’s house for her baby shower. So glad we could go. It was fun seeing their new house and getting to share in their excitement and anticipation of their baby on the way.
26th-Tonight was our first CERT class for this round of CERT training (Group #3). We went over there as a family. We helped get things rolling. After a while Chester took the kids over to the library so they weren’t so bored and so they could get books for our trip. I stayed for the whole class. We had a pretty good turn out I felt. Hopefully most of them will stick with it.
27th-Today was Bryant’s “special day” with Chester. It was kind of big and special so Bryant invited Cooper, Luke Woods, and Bobby to go with them. They went up to DC to the Washington DC Auto Show. Oh wow! Bryant was in heaven he thought! He LOVES cars. They had loads of fun. I stayed home with the K’s and the plan was to get LOTS done in preparation for our trip to Florida. Well I ended up not feeling very good so I sat around a lot. Not a lot was accomplished. At least the boys had fun though.
Definitely was a boys dream! So glad Chester had the idea. The boys won’t ever forget this day I’m sure.
29th-Last night Kaylin got sick during the night. We decided to continue on with our plan of packing up and getting out of here to head to Florida. When Kaylin woke up she seemed totally fine so we ended up being able to get packed up and out of here. We left about dinner time but we had to meet up with Bobby and Laura at Sam’s in town so we just ended up inviting them to join us for dinner. So we started our trip having company for dinner in the Sam’s parking lot.
I will finish this month in our Key West Trip post.
