Family Time

Happy New Year! I know, I know… I’m almost a week late. I didn’t intend to keep away from the blog for so long, but I’ve been pretty busy with family and then I spent the last four days confined to my bed (except for an ill-fated day at work because I hate giving up PTO time to sickness). I finally have some strength for something other than being cuddled up in bed with a book, so I thought I’d just share some favorite photos from the past week or so with my family.

Amanda really wanted me to take some family photos for her while they were in town, so we ventured out on a very cold New Year’s morning.

Of course, we couldn’t take a family photo with coats on, but as soon as we took them off, the kids were not happy.

But they were troopers and we were able to get at least a few photos before we bundled them back up again.

We spent the rest of the day at Matt and Izzy’s.

I love to be surrounded by my loved ones at the end of the year and the beginning of a new one. It gets things started off right. Now let’s just hope that the rest of the year is much healthier.
