You might be asking, "Winter Break?" YES - Franklin County has a week-long winter break, & I loved the much needed break. I loved every minute with my boys! I did go to school, meet with friends, go to doctor's appointments, & take a trip to Mississippi.
The week started off with my Mom & sister, Anna, visiting! They came to meet my 5th graders & bring the boys. The class loved Peyton & Nolan! We ate at our favorite - 211 restaurant, cheer on Jonathan in a race, shop with Anna, & enjoy time relaxing at home.

I was determined to put down my "to-do" list on Wednesday & PLAY all day with Peyton & Nolan (& even nap when they napped)! Peyton & I painted, watched a Mickey Mouse (his favorite at the moment), put together puzzles, played with trucks, trains, planes, & cars (he loves anything that moves), & read many books.

We ended the winter break by traveling to Brandon, Mississippi to celebrate our nephew, Hayes, 2nd birthday! The boys did wonderful in the car - thank goodness (Nolan's best trip yet!). They LOVED their "cousin time" with Lele & Hayes. You even see Nolan wishing he could run around with them. It was so much fun to watch the cousins play, laugh, & even have trouble sharing at times...all valuable learning experiences. We had the best time - Amanda & Seth made a delicious lunch & dinner for us, along with a fun "car-themed" birthday party. Needless to say - both boys took long naps on the way home.

It was back to work Monday morning, but sweet, sweet memories from my break!
