Two full weeks off from this blog… Wow. And with those weeks off, I’ve missed 3 busy-week posts… so let’s play a little catch-up, shall we?
School Ended for a 2+ week break…
and we celebrated being home together by:
visiting the lights at the Toledo Zoo,
having some sleddin’ fun
and watching our holiday card collection grow.
We then wished my daughter a happy 10th birthday…
celebrating with family (twice) and her friends (once)
at a dance-themed party which was complete with dance instruction
choreographed to a “tweenie-ish” Disney Channel song.
Christmas came and went.
Along with a lot of traveling to visit family,
we also managed to potty train our youngest
(that’s seriously a post in itself)
which required a lot sitting around the home.
(At least we were able to thoroughly enjoy all our new stuff!)

Sure enough by his 3rd Birthday, we had a potty trained toddler!
(I want to make sure you caught that – and not the potty training part.)
Yes… you heard me right.
We celebrated both my oldest daughter’s
and my youngest son’s birthdays
within 10 days of each other…
(I know… poor planning.)
After all the birthday parties and Christmas gatherings,
we were happy to bring in the New Year
and some much needed R&R.
I missed this space… but I would have missed my family more had I not given them the time they deserved during these busy past couple of weeks.
