Eden is quite the cherub at bathtime.
To her great delight, Mercy's ninth birthday came in January. We had fun decorating with butterflies and pink together and preparing for her little family party.
Reuben's need for his "bweathing medicine" returned as it seems to each winter. I am thankful that he only really needs it when he has a bad cold. Also in this shot you can see evidence of Reuben's ability to lick his own face constantly- chapped skin is definitely a winter time thing in our house.
That said, when my parents' surprised Bob and I with a mid January trip to Mexico, without our offspring, to a place that is indeed warm and sunny on purpose, we went and had a lovely time. Turns out that warm weather can be quite pleasant if you spend your time reading, smiling and pretending you speak spanish really well and if you don't have to cook in it. Who knew?
Coming soon: pictures from our trip. :)
