January 2009

January was a cold and snowy month. We spent most days just hanging out here. Some days because that's what we wanted to do and then other days because we didn't have any choice because of the snow. We missed 2 weeks of gymnastics. That's a true bummer. Most of the time if you ask Maya what she wants to do she'll say, "I wanna stay here." She is definitely a homebody.
We did venture out to our local groups Chinese New Year dinner. Our girly looked just like a princess.

Maya and Emma

All the kiddos that made it to the dinner. The weather made it difficult for many families to make it this year. We usually have twice as many kids.

Maya loves to make snow angles. We made them all the way across our yard.

Such a shame to be so sad...

We do a lot of painting around here these days. We paint pictures and our fingernails and toenails.

The tent will be up for days at a time and then I just can't stand it anymore and have to put it away for a few days. Maya asks about everyday that it's down to put it back up. She will play in it for hours. The static is out of control!

"You take a picture of me, Mommy and I take a picture of you!"

We did get to spend one morning with the cutest red headed boy I know, Carson!

Halloween created a monster out of Maya. A candy monster. Before trick or treat Maya never asked for candy. She would only eat those tiny M&Ms. And not very many of them. Well those are days of the past. Candy, candy, candy! She asks for it 10 times a day, at least! This is Maya's first candy necklace.

Ice cream is another favorite. But really now, who doesn't love ice cream?

Just because she's so darn cute..

It's been a while since I've taken a picture of one of Maya's drawings . This Tinkerbell dry erase board has been a favorite lately. "It's a clown!" Maya says as she circles and circles to make the nose. The last thing drawn on the picture. "Hey Mom, I make a clown!"
