New Year Same Family

It's a new year, but we're still the same family.  One of the things I like about our little family is that we are predictable.  If you read my blog regularly, then you've seen similar images over and over.  You know what to expect and what you see is what you get.  Nothing out of the ordinary but making everyday memories extraordinary.  These everyday, simple moments are the ones we'll look back on and want to remember.  It doesn't always have to be the big events that are special.  So here's my "phone dump" from the beginning of the new year to now.

No surprise that we celebrated finishing our first week of school after the Christmas break with pizza and cheesecake at Grimaldi's.  We really enjoyed Christmas break, and it was an adjustment getting back in the routine of early to bed, early to rise.  The boys look like they are in a trance once they saw the cheesecake.  Cheesecake can do that to a person, ha!

Ben's face reflects his feelings about going to bed early because it's a school night.  He has the most animated face and funniest expressions. 

Will is a challenge to get up and going in the morning, but once he's up and in the car, he's good to go. 

The life of two kids who have parents for teachers.  Will and Ben are in Mark's math classroom after school waiting on us to finish up.  I'm thankful they are patient (most of the time).

I should have started The Hunger Games trilogy over the Christmas break, but I waited until school started back.  So far I'm really enjoying it.   I had a dream about it so that must mean it's really good.

This photo was just too good not to include.  "The force is strong with this one." 

Had to put this one on here too.  Cuties! 

Angry Birds Star Wars...this isn't a surprise.  Y'all know my boys love playing. 

Saturday morning traditions.  Donuts.

Birthday party fun!  Will and Ben had fun playing with Mia's new train set.  She has the sweetest parents and is adorable! 

One more photo collage from my girls getaway that started the new year.  I can't believe it's been a week since I've seen Kelly and Andrea.  We had such a good time!  {More photos here.}
