On our way home from Christmas travels, Sam pretended that his stuffed animal needed to nurse?!

Everyone wants to take their baby to the doc during flu season… (thankfully, it wasn’t the flu for us… just allergies)

I think she didn’t like the hat?

Sam is playing Upward Basketball at our church. He has started having practices. Yes, it is exactly like herding cats. It is hilarious!

On Saturdays, he has his game. Thankfully, his games are all at 10am so then we have the rest of the day to do whatever (like take a nap!)

He also liked getting his stars!

Sam and Travis went on a children’s ministry trip to Louisiana Children’s Home, Duck Dynasty, and a fun park in Monroe. They had fun and it was good for them to do something together.

Sam thought he was cool stuff since he was tall enough to drive a go cart by himself!

I was working on laundry. G was hanging out in her bumbo chair. Sam decided to plop down and read her a book. I love these two sweet kids!

This is G’s “angry” face (and the face she makes when the supply of food stops!)

Dad Buddy and I took Sam to see the Globetrotters when they performed at LC. It was a fun night! I love the hilarity and good, clean fun that the Globetrotters deliver. Sam thought it was hilarious that one of the guys stood up on the rim and started acting like a baby. HA!

So… CENLA got snow this month! We were quite shocked! Sam didn’t have school for 2 days. The bridges across the river were closed! It’s been crazy. It is obvious that this area isn’t used to dealing with snow. The worst morning, Travis walked to Kroger to get us more milk because our road was iced over. No one was driving around because the roads hadn’t been salted yet so it wasn’t a problem for him to cross Jackson St. It was just kind of funny that he did it.

We took the kids to Compton Park to get some snow pictures and play. It was cold and fun! I now have pictures of both kids in Bumbos in the snow!

We got rid of our plastic sled when we moved from NC, so we got a bit creative and brought a storage tote lid in an attempt to sled. It didn’t work but Sam had fun trying!

My parents came up for a basketball game. After the basketball game, we drove to Monroe so we could try out Willie Robertson’s (Duck Dynasty) new restaurant- Duck Diner! The food was delicious! Afterwards, we stopped by the Duck Commander warehouse to look around and play some games.

I made a GF King Cake for Acteens. It was not the prettiest but, I didn’t bring any home and those Louisiana girls said it was one of the best they’d ever had. I would consider that a success!

Travis and Sam love to wrestle. I don’t think Gabrielle knows what to think about it yet. Somehow, I feel like she will be getting herself involved before too long though!

That’s it for January. It was a cold and busy month. We had lots of family time so I wouldn’t trade it for anything!
