So, January Happened

Some notable January events

Finals week and the end of the first semester for Dagny and Dane
(test were taken, good grades were obtained)

Dagny sustained the first serious injury of her life by severing a nerve in her leg
(it is as serious as it sounds, but due to excellent care from her Dr. and her mother, and lots of really good painkillers, she is on the mend)

Steve got excellent news from his Oncologist, he continues to be cancer free

As for me, I'm not sure January was all that notable in my life. I have been busy doing all the things I normally do, plus driving Dagny to school and lots of Dr. appointments. I have  also been practicing new recipes and spending lots of time looking at prom dresses with Dagny.  Oh, and I discovered Downton Abbey.  (if you haven't seen it, go watch it right now, then come back and tell me how much you loved it)

This is the absolute worst picture I have ever taken of my family and one of my all-time favorites. It makes me laugh. It's amazing that I captured all three of them looking that bad.  I've never come up with a reason to put it on the blog, but it's too good not to be seen and since I don't have a picture for today's post I am sharing it.  Enjoy. 


  1. We LOVE Downton Abbey! It's so classy and fun. We recommend it to everyone too.

    1. Dane's expression is my favorite! I can't believe January came and went so quickly...

  2. Send our best to Dagny on her recovery. Oh, and by the way... best picture ever.

  3. The only surprise in that picture is that you caught Dagny offguard. Dane and I have never taken a good picture in our lives, that one is pretty standard: me - tongue out, Dane - weird face.

  4. We should do a photoshop contest of that pic to have people show what we are looking at.
