The Cold Days of January

Hello friends! I have heard a few requests for an updated blog and so I will respond.  The husband is up to his elbows in Seminary work this week.  He is taking a 10 Commandments class that runs 9 hours a day, Tuesday through Saturday.  What a scholar!  Our kids continue to enjoy school.  We are trying to pass these cold days in our apartment without getting on each other's nerves too much. We have headed to the ice rink a few times and it has been a really fun family event.  Alise took her friends one of the times that we went.  As you can see, Natalie continues to simulate everything Alise does, likes, and wears. Sometimes that drives Alise crazy, but I am glad that out of all the people in the world, she has chosen to look up to Alise.  :) The Financial Aid world is great.  I get to go to a workshop all day Wednesday to learn more about the regulations and concepts of FA.  I know that sounds a bit nerdy, but I'm okay with that.  I must sign off for now and leave you with a few pictures: our new fish tank, the great 2000 piece puzzle successfully put together, and our attempts at ice skating. Blessings,    Anita
