January 1: New Year's Day
|Jacob celebrating the new year. I miss his hair!!!|
|Thomas and Jamie made a garden. This was part of a more elaborate game that I no longer remember.|
|Jamie made dinner from the garden for Peter Rabbit and stacked up books so he could sit at the table.|
|I stole this picture from Mandy's fb :)|
|Jamie made this "pirate ship." He incorporates so many little details when he plays like this. My favorite is that he has toy meat hanging off the edge of the ship "so it can be preserved by the salt spray from the ocean." Seriously, he is the best.|
|I cannot let Jacob out of my sight for one second!|
|Jamie snuggled up reading a book. I love love love it when I find him like this!!|
January 27: Thomas & I saw Guster in concert. They were awesome and we had so much fun!!
January 28: I took Jamie to a "Very Young People's Concert" at the Tennessee Theatre. The Knoxville Symphony Orchestra played music and told stories to engage children in the symphony. They ended with Peter and the Wolf, which is one of Jamie's favorites. Afterwards we went out to lunch together. It was a great little Mommy-Jamie date. :)
|later at home... not sure what this was supposed to be, but it was cute.|
Also in January:
- Thomas started a new D&D group (as if he has time for that!).
- I joined a new book club.
- Thomas had his first phone interview!! He has since had 2 additional Skype interviews, and he's currently on his way to his first on-campus interview! He also has another Skype interview next week. He's still applying for more jobs and next year is still very much up in the air, but it has been so great to see hiring committees taking interest in him!
