Ringing in the New Year! January 2014

I am discovering, as  a stay at home mom, that the winters can get pretty boring. With a new little baby we didn't want to venture out into the cold. So, while Tyson worked all day, the kids and I stayed inside and played. 
It has been really fun to see all the expressions my new little lady makes. Often times when she pulls a face Tyson says she reminds him of me. Meaning I pull a lot of funny faces.
Abe and I tried to keep busy with crafts and fun projects. We most often colored and played with stickers. Abe LOVES to have stickers on his belly!
We ventured out into the cold for a family date night. I had craved sushi all throughout my pregnancy with Monet and we had to avoid most of the stuff I really like. So, once she was here, we knew we would have to go out and get me some SUSHI!
Abe and Monet got to know each other.
My parents had to put down our family dog. It was very sad to know a member of our family was so sick and needed to be let go. But.... They did get a new dog! Her name is Mia and she is really sweet. Abe loves her!
Our nephew Thomas Hunsaker was born! 
Abe tried banana bread for the first time and LOVED it!
I had lots of photo shoots with the kids. 
They both got tired of it!
Abe displayed his signs of OCD in the ways he played and made messes. I often was worried he was making a mess when he was a little too quiet.... Turns out this is as messy as it gets.

We ventured out again for another date night to Sean's BBQ. If you haven't been there, you NEED to!
AND Tyson started a new mural in our house! This one is in the play room downstairs. It is going to be circus themed and we already love it!
