Happy New Year

My first 2012 post (I think)

I guess I should've gone back and looked at my last post to see where we are

Everyone is now back at school and happyish!!  Max is having a private speech therapist come to our house but it only works if he is willing and we all know how stubborn he can be.  The kids are also having piano lessons now, the girls are a nightmare and won't listen to a word the tutor says, Jonah however has turned out to be quite attentive (surprisingly), he sits and listens and then happily does as he's asked.  I've decided to let him have most of the hour lesson and then the girls can get 15 minutes at the end until they learn to pay attention.

I bought myself a sewing machine for Christmas and am attemping to make two rag quilts for the girls, I've pieced together enough for one, just another 64 squares to go and then the long job of stitching them all together.  I will bore you soon with lots of work in progress photos.

Ben is working lots as usual, they go live next month so I don't expect to see much of him.

We attempted to hit the beach on Sunday but I always forget we have to cross a mountain to get there and it's snow season.  We lasted 20 minutes on the pass going 20 miles an hour before we decided to turn back which actually turned out to be a good thing as we discovered a fantastic State Park called Stub Stewart.  It was covered in snow so we got to go on a lovely winter walk, only trouble was the kids weren't really dressed for it so the little ones got cold very quickly.  We shall definitely be going back and may even rent a cabin next time, there was even a couple of little hills to sledge from and it's only a 40 minute drive away.

I have found some new blog templates so you'll have to bare with me whilst I play around and see which ones I like/dislike.

Ok off to bed, Madeleine is sick so I have a guest for the night.
