Mostly January Stuff

Since I have gotten so behind in posting, I'll just share some things that have been going on around our house, most of which happened in January 2012.

Hannah is still taking dance and is doing so well! She loves gymnastics and is learning lots of new tricks. She is getting Garrett to help her out with some of them and its fun to see them together.
Look how long her hair is getting!! She wants to grow it out like Rapunzel.

Here is a not-so-flattering picture of me taken by my favorite photographer, Ryan. He loves to take pictures of everything and his view of the world is interesting. Love that funny kid! Here is Blake too, half grown!

Hannah recently figured out that she can vacuum and it won't suck her up! She loves to vacuum. I love to let her!

Both of my grandmas have birthdays in January. They are out of order here but this is Grandma Purcell (or Grandma Great as my kids know her). She will kill me if she sees this picture but this was the best one. She does not like to keep her eyes open during pictures! I took quite a few but people kept talking to her and she would move and shut her eyes again. Oh well. We went to her house on her birthday and had soup and cake, courtesy of my Aunt Merrilee. Yum!

Grandma Cook's birthday really comes first in January. This year my siblings (Brent, Beckie & Doug) and I went to her house to surprise her. We took her some yummy dinner from the Canton restaurant and let the kids go wild at her house. It is fun to see the kids playing with the same toys we played with as kids. Ryan especially loved this train pillow that has cars that connect together with buttons. Here is a picture of all the grand kids (except Remi). Everyone did pretty good holding still and smiling.

So there is the quick overview of our January 2012. It has been awesome. So far...
