Gabe has come a long way since last year when he got stuck on the snowy slope in our front yard, panicked, and decided to stay inside throughout the snow-playing time. Now he's an old pro. And, like a good big brother, he's confident enough to help those younger than himself.

The Rackleys left for a new life in Uganda today.
One must needs go up and down the escalator a time or two with friends when one has a chance.
The hardest part, by far, was seeing the big brother and big sister goodbyes. The 20-year-old twins stayed behind.
Such precious friends. (I shed a lot of tears today.)
We covered them with lots of prayer.
And will continue to do so...

The Christmas Leftovers
Anybody else have this problem? Everything's all nicely packed up and put away in the attic, and now there's this little collection of thingies. A couple ornaments were stuck in the verrry dead tree and found once outside on the curb. (Whew!) There were also several tragedies this year. Heartbreaking ones, unfortunately. (See the tricycle ornament box? That's all that's left of that ornament. The bad thing is it was Gabe's for THIS year! It never even made it onto the tree.) So I guess I'll be scouring the auctions on eBay all year for replacements. But one bright spot: I scored a Prep and Landing ornament at Hallmark marked down to $4.00 from $15.00! Yessssssssss!

Noah made a board game during school today. It was in his Anti-Coloring Book.

We had dinner with new friends tonight. Noah played soccer with their oldest. And Saylor takes ballet with their middle child. I couldn't get a good picture, because there were too many busy bodies in the shot. Oh, well.

Saylor had a jewelry-making birthday party to attend this morning. She was excited ALL week about it.
Well, January's flying by like all the rest of the months in my life. I'm grateful to have a photo record of my days. This post is linked at Sara's Project 365.
