January Randomness

Wednesday, January 21, 2015
I love the calm of January after the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Calm is all relative and even calm months are busy and full of activity around here. But it is the more impromptu fun random activity rather than full fledged parties and events.

In no particular order here are some of the things we have been up to the last couple of weeks. Complete with lots of cute P pictures.

Kali celebrated a birthday and we had to take the opportunity to have cake at lifegroup. Ok, we take the opportunity to have cake at lifegroup all the time. But this time it had candles in it.

We have done lots of playing with new Christmas and birthday toys. They all just stayed out loose in the living room for a long time. But we finally wrangled them into a toy center under the stairs this last weekend and got our living room back (sans a train table).

Yeah, thats a lego cannon from his Jake and the Neverland Pirates lego set. For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to show him that he can pick it up and use it on its own. And how he has a weapon and thinks it is hilarious to shoot people with it. We (well I) created a monster. At least he is a cute one.

In organizing our new gift cards we got at Christmas, we realized there were still some hanging around from last year (oops). So we have made it our mission to make sure we do a better job of using gift cards in a timely fashion. So we went out for ice cream in January. Why not. Perry learned about the amazingness that is dipped waffle bowls.

This past Saturday we had a family nerdy game night with the Eckleys. We had pizza and chocolate cobbler and the adults played a round of Settlers of Catan and Pandemic while the kiddos played with trains and watched Frozen. 

Is 2 too young to start teaching to play Settlers? And no, that is not Perry's diet mountain dew. lol. This was about the moment when we said hey Perry, want to go watch Elsa and Anna??

The weather this last weekend was just beautiful. So after church on Sunday we picked up take out and had a picnic lunch on the driveway. It was so nice to be outside after a very dreary couple of weeks. 

Sunday night we went to a Huntsville Havoc hockey game with the Garretts and Towrys. Most of the games have been past P's bedtime, but this time it was at 5 pm so we jumped at the chance to go see them play. Perry loved being around friends and watching all the action (both on the ice and in the stands). Hockey games make for some superb people watching.
