Wow. What happened? January was a pretty crummy month for us. We had a lot of illness. Thankfully nothing too serious, but even minor sickness takes a long time to makes its way through seven of us. After everyone was finally healthy, I was just in a blogging funk. I didn't feel like I had anything to post and kept putting off writing anything. Then when I finally sat down to post something, I learned that my camera and my computer are no longer speaking. I'm not sure what exactly caused the falling out, but I am not able to upload any pictures (other than cell phone pics) right now. Oh well, I'm just going to do what I can and get back to (somewhat) regular posts.
So what have we done between ear infections, bronchitis, allergies, asthma flair-ups and stomach bugs?
Will finished his basketball season. He had a great time this season and improved quite a bit. I'm so proud of how hard he works!
We hung out at home A LOT and went a little stir crazy. Here is Izzie one day when she was obsessed with giving 'thumbs up.' (yeah, the *crazy eyes* kind of scare me too!)
But hands down the saddest part of January was the very sudden and unexpected death of Rod's grandfather, Peepaw. He was the last of our grandparents and always treated me like his own granddaughter. He was such a loving man and was happy right up until his death. I feel bad just adding him to the end of a post rather than giving him his own, but frankly his death is just too sad to talk about much. We love him and miss him terribly.
So, hopefully I will figure out the problem with my camera and get some pictures posted and get back to blogging about our life. Even through our lousy January, these kids kept me laughing with their funny antics.
Thank God for my blessings!
