January is the most boring, slow-paced month of the year to me. Don't get me wrong, I'm very thankful for the slow down after all the hustle & bustle of the holidays, but my boys get antsy quickly during the short days of winter. Even though our winter has been very mild this year, and we've had a lot of beautiful days, during the week with school and work, it just doesn't leave us much time in the evenings to get out. Needless to say, we love the weekends, but haven't been up to much lately. That's why this little journal of mine for the boys has been quite dry lately.

I was going through the few new pics on my phone, and found these I forgot that I saved from my niece's Snapchat.  It was during Christmas break while she & her mama were visiting.  She, Jubal, Gentry, & I were huddled up in the living room watching scary movies.  I didn't know she was snapping these, but I caught myself smiling when I found them.

The boys literally cry to go to work with me on Saturdays.  Sometimes, even Larson tags along since it's hard to keep up with both of them while trying to do my job, too.  This particular Saturday, Jubal came with me.  My boss, Scott, was playing around with him, and put him in "tire timeout".  Of course, Jubal thought it was awesome.  Ha!

People are always telling us that Jubal looks just like Larson, and Gentry is a little Shae.  I do think Gentry looks more like me, but Larson definitely can't say either of these boys aren't his.  I did a comparison of them when they were all about the same age.  They both look so much like him. :)

Gentry wanted their little recliner brought into the living room the other night.  As I sat and watched him while he was watching TV, I glanced over at Jubal snuggled up right next to me playing on his tablet and thought to myself how these boys have no idea how good they have it made right now.  Absolutely no worries in this world, as it should be.  I sure wish I could go back, but I'm a lucky woman to have all I have in this life.  Sometimes I forget to be grateful, but quiet moments like these remind of how blessed I truly am.

It won't be long and a new season will be upon us.  The pace will pick back up, and I'll be wishing for some peace.  So, as of right now, I'm soaking up the boring days of January.  I sure am looking forward to spring, though. ;)
