1/9/15 - I got to meet Jason's cousin's granddaughter Ripley - who is also my best friend's niece! I love that I am related to her now!
1/30 - we had our house appraised. We decided back in November to refinance our house, so I had been working with the bank on it since then. More on this later.
2/8 - Grandma Mary (Regehr) passed away. I spent a lot of time with her over the past 3 years, so it felt like losing a grandmother I'd known my whole life. She was generous and loving and we will miss her, but we're so thankful for her 89 years of life and that she is with Jesus!
2/10 - Jason's birthday! Apple pie - his favorite! Not very fun to be mourning on your birthday.
2/14 - weekend trip to KC to visit Lego land! This was their Christmas present from my parents. They loved it!
3/1 - more snow! They built a cowboy snowman.
3/12 - Josiah's remaining loose front tooth continued to dangle in his mouth, but he wanted to lose it at school (to get this dazzling tooth necklace), so he wouldn't let us pull it. With all the snow days we had, the tooth was pretty much sideways in his mouth (we called him scraggle-tooth) before he finally got it pulled at school! Success!!
3/15 - a fun impromptu zoo visit with some friends who happened to be in Springfield.
3/30 - we took advantage of the kids being away by having a date night!
4/13 - Josiah got pink eye in both eyes. It was going around his class at school. He got 2 days off of school and really didn't feel that bad, so he rather enjoyed it! The nurse practitioner prescribed an ointment for his eyes, and that didn't help much, so the next week we started on some drops. His eyes are looking much better now!
Here's to less throwing up and more blogging in the coming months!
