out with the old, in with the new. {goodbye january}

 hair bows are out.
mo hawks are in.
apparently,
so are stripes.
happy groundhog day.
it's the lucky mo hawks.
not the groundhog.
that are bringing the spring early.
at least, i hope.
although i'm not gonna lie.
i'd love more snow.
just not the days when it's sunny,
with no snow,
and too freezing to go anywhere.
like rexburg freezing.
now, where is that movie...
i just cannot tell you enough how happy i am to see january BE GONE.
...
last night the kids played in the big room after dinner.
in their diapers.
b/c getting ready for bed, or getting ready for anything, is always an assembly line.
one step done is one step closer to being finished.
brennan was blowing on max's tummy.
her leg.
her back.
then pulling her by her foot when she'd try to run away.
squealing.
they were both laughing.
it was great.
i laid on the floor in my swimsuit, covered with sweats and a sweatshirt.
and sean cleaned up our dishes from dinner.
we had grilled cheese and tomato soup.
and both kids ate it.
well, brennan ate half.
and then dunked the rest in the soup and kept saying "uh oh" over and over and over, and then ran off.
then brennan hit max on the head.
not during dinner.
during when they were laughing.
well,
it was after they were laughing from him blowing on her tummy.
she started crying.
everyone got changed into jammies.
i left for swimming.
it was a fantastic night.
it actually felt like we might be doing something right.

Sorry I missed you swimming- we must be on alternating schedules.

What a fun night! And I gotta say, I was a little confused as to why you were lying on the floor in your swim suit. Now I understand. :)
Love the mohawks!

That sounds like a great evening! And stripes go with everything... My 16 year just put that on her FB status yesterday. :)
