I know I am way behind.  However I have been keeping good track of things.  My Husband knows me pretty well and he knows I love roses and Lilies and flowers in general.  For Valentine's he gave me these beautiful pink roses.  They lasted forever and were so pretty.  I was really impressed.  I have a good husband!!

Crystal Hot Springs

On Monday the 25th we all got together and went to Crystal Hot Springs to go swimming and then out to eat.  We had a great time swimming and the water is always nice and warm.  They still need to update the bathrooms there, but they are better than they used to be.  Afterwards we always go to Peach City to get hamburgers and shakes, but they were closed for remodeling.  So we ended up going to Costa Vida.  It was good too.  We had a great time with everyone there, even Char and Brett came all three days we spent together.  That was nice.  We really enjoyed ourselves.  It was too bad this visit was so short!

Sleigh Riding with the Family

Cole came home for a quick visit on the 22nd of January and so we filled it with family events.  On Saturday we headed up to Charlene's  and had a dinner of tacos and then  out to their property up Daniels, and had a great time sleigh riding.  It was a little crazy at times.  Brett brought his snowmobile to take us back up the hill so we didn't have to walk but after riding on it once I decided I would rather walk.  It was a bit crazy.  We all had a great time though.  Afterwards we went back to Char's and we had some hot chocolate and visited.  It was really run.  And Yes we were able to get Mom out of the house and up there.  It took a lot of cajoling and pushing, but we did it.  She does so much better when we get her moving!

Ethan's many activities

Ethan is involved in a lot of extra curricular activities.    These past few weeks not only has he worked, but he has been participating in honor choir, Academic Decathlon, and FBLA.  Two weekends ago he did the Academic Decathlon and won the Bronze Medal!!!  Last Weekend he went to Honor Choir, and although we couldn't make it, everyone said it was great!!  He has another AcaDec contest coming up this weekend.

He has really made a concerted effort to get involved and to work hard this year.  We are really proud of him.
