How is your January looking ?
For our little family … we are getting back into a routine with things.
My oldest son Cade goes to kindergarten Monday-Thursday, and I’m learning how to teach him on Fridays… and it’s been fun!
My son has learned a lot this year —it’s crazy to see him sounding out words and recognizing words. He doesn’t always want to do school work, and I don’t push him too much because at the end of the day, I want school to be fun for him.
Cade, our boy, has a neighbor friend that comes to play most days .. and he looks forward to playing everyday. Cade is our social boy and loves people.
Makell— (3 years) our middle child and oldest daughter, she has enjoyed preschool two days a week.
Makell loves to be like her big brother so she feels pretty special to be in school.
Makell loves art and drawing and has learned to write an “M” and an “O” on papers.
Makell started dance classes this fall and I absolutely love and enjoy watching her dance, it’s so cute and adorable! And she loves to get dressed up and put on makeup for her dance recitals!
Makell is so nurturing and caring. Nobody takes care of their dolls bet tree than Makell. Makell’s baby dolls are always wrapped up nice sleeping ..all over the house.
Makell also has a sassy side and I would put money down that she has the loudest cry of all the girls out there.
We love our sweet Makell and it’s fun listening to her talk and grow.. her vocabulary has grown so much in the past little while.
Taya can be summed up as cute and busy!
She started taking a few walking steps at Thanksgiving and is walking further and further now.
She opens and dumps out anything she can, she tries to eat everything, and she is copying many of the words we say.
Taya is known as “smiley” because she truly is smiling about 90% of the time.. and we love that about her.
Yes she can get mad when she doesn’t get her way, but we love her so much.
My husband -Brad, stays busy with a busy job, church calling, and he’s such a hard working father and husband.
Brad is handy and can figure out how to build or fix about anything.
Brad has recently learned to bake bread and baking bread is our family’s Sunday activity… and then we deliver a bunch of bread to people who may enjoy it!
Brad is so good at serving others, his focus is always on how he can help others.
Brad is great to get a workout in, and he also takes time to study his scriptures daily and write in his journal.
And let’s just say when we hear the garage go up in the evening, and Brad’s car rolls in, we are all standing at the door excited to great him!
As for me, I stay plenty busy.
My three kids are all at fun, yet busy stages.
I have become the carpool mom this year with kindergarten and preschool.
I guess you would say I’m stepping into a new stage of life.
It’s fun to see my kids learn and grow, and when I have to teach kindergarten on Fridays (my son works from home on Fridays), I realize just how amazing kindergarten teachers are, because my cute son does not have a long attention span.
I love blogging and writing.
I also enjoy being a Seint Makeup Artist and it has been fun to see my makeup company grow over the year.
Cooking and baking (gluten-free) is always something I look forward to.
And since the end of August, I have been lifting, working out, and working on nutrition so that I can finally lose my baby weight. It’s been wonderful to feel more in shape, and I love working out!
As for cleaning our house, there are still aspects of cleaning and organizing that I love–even though currently our house is not as spotless as it used to be.
I have quite a few goals for the new year, and this month specifically–my focus is straightening my spirituality.
I would dare say, not just myself, but as an entire family we look forward to the weekends.
On Friday nights, if everyone gets chores and homework complete, we have a family movie night with popcorn and all. And it’s so fun to see our little ones get so excited to watch a movie all together. We all look forward to family movie night!
On Saturdays we spend the day together and usually get some cleaning done and run errands together.
And the best is Sunday. We are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and we have a program called “Come Follow Me,” where we have lessons about our scriptures.
This year our “Come Follow Me” lessons are about the Doctrine and Covenants and it has been so neat to learn more about this book of scriptures.
We also enjoy attending sacrament meeting as a family on Sundays.
I could summarize and say that life lately, is busy and exciting and yet wonderful and precious.
There are parts of me that would love to “Freeze” time because our little ones are growing so fast.
And yet, watching our little ones grow has been amazing to witness as well.
My husband and I would love to get out on date nights more, it has been hard to get out with the pandemic right now, but hopefully, as things get better, my hubs and I can enjoy some quality time together.
Overall, our family is excited for the New Year of 2021 and we hope that there are many great things in store for us all.
Until Next Time,
