Capturing Life's Little Moments

Ahhh, January.  My least favorite month of the year.  It's just so cold and unexciting. 

This year, however, it wasn't too bad!  The weather was fairly mild, and despite the cold that made its way through our family, it was a positive month. Plus, it just went by so quickly!

I really enjoyed posting my first round of Life's Little Moments.  I'm trying to step away from taking so many posed pictures.  Instead, I want to capture those sweet moments that take my breath away. 

Life is made up of so many special moments that are easy to overlook.  Here are the moments that made January so special...

Our first big snow.  And by big snow, I mean 2 inches.

Countless hours at the library.

This puzzle. All day, everyday. And even though we have it at home, it's the first thing he runs to at the library! ❤ He doesn't even realize he's getting some extra OT!

Sibling sleepovers.

My girls! ❤ Lily recently started sleeping in Lexie's bed at night and she curls up against her. I'm not sure how either of them get any sleep, but it sure is sweet! #sisters

A newfound love for basketball.
