We have become those lazy people that drive their kid to the bus stop because well its January in New Hampshire and at 645 am its dark and COLD and well you never know if you will be waiting 0.02 seconds for the bus or 15 min so until it warms up we are driving. Our little artist started off scribbling on random pieces of paper she found in her backpack while waiting in the car for the bus. Mike was kind enough to get her a pad of paper and a special gel pen and she recently stashed a box of crayons in the glove box. And while we wait she writes the sweetest little notes.
Be still my heart!!!! I'm going to miss this sweet little girl as she grows up.
Makes me feel awful when she hands me the note and hops on the bus and I know the morning has been crazy and I may have yelled at her for the 18th time to just please"" HURRY UP AND EAT YOUR BREAKFAST ALREADY!!!""

This is Cecilia with her mom Alexis. Cecilia is the 1 month old ( born Dec 6th 2013) daughter of one of my best friends. She is battling a very aggressive cancer. Please please pray for her and for her mother and father and 3 older siblings, Sarah, Maddie, and Benjamin.
You can follow her journey here http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/ceciliaanne
And if you feel so inclined you can donate money to help pay for gas to drive back and forth to Boston Children's Hospital ( a little over a hour from their home in NH), parking, and medical expenses not covered by insurance. http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/help-cecilia-harrison-fight-cancer/124064

We enjoyed a fabulous Christmas season. I know I know its still the Christmas season technically but its mostly back to reality. Mike has gone back to work after over a week home. Last year he saved up some vacation time and was home for several days and it made Christmas time so much more fun and relaxing to have him home with us. So this year despite using vacation time for Samuel's birth and a week at the beach he was able to save some for Christmas. We so enjoyed having him home and I was even able to finish a whole book. That is no small feat for a mom. :o) The kids really enjoyed having him around to color with them and read them endless stories and play lots of board games. He also kept the fire place stocked with a roaring fire which is a nice change from reality as well. Usually we only use the fire place when we have company over or on Sundays.
But back to reality. Keira goes back to school Monday and its January ( my least favorite time of the year) and its bitterly cold out. Its going to be -25 with the wind chill tonight. Winter storm Hercules just made his departure and dumped several inches of snow on us. Yeah its definitely January. I am dreaming of warm weather and lets be honest Spring doesn't start officially till mid March and well its usually not even spring like for several more weeks. So on to the pictures
