It has been ages… big surprise! It usually has been when I actually have a spare moment to blog. Snow is covering the ground and the temperatures have been in the negative numbers. brrrr and ouch! Gabe is growing up sooo fast. For a while now he has been using 3 word phrases. He is ready to potty train but I am not. We’re looking forward to vacation in a few weeks out to visit my brother and family. I have 4 weeks of vacation time this year and I am so excited. I find myself daydreaming a lot lately of summertime last year. I was not working due to FMLA for Gabriel. We had such a good time traveling and playing outside in the water at parks and such. Baseball games, cookouts, camp season…. these are all such fond memories.
