A New January Tradition

We all have a nasty virus.  Oliver's fever has been as high as 104 twice today and Pearl is getting her molars (on top of having the bug).  Last January, I was feeling pretty stressed about Oliver's upcoming surgery.  He dragged Pearl and me to the beach and we ended up having a wonderful day.  A couple of weeks ago, Oliver asked if we could have another January day at the beach.  To keep myself in a happy mood, I have been editing those pictures.

Someday soon, I know we will again be dancing in the waves and eating banana ice cream.  From now on, we will start the year off with one perfect day in January.  For the kids it will be a day of carefree digging and running and for me it will be a day to reflect on the gift of motherhood.          


  1. What lovely photos and beautiful memories! I hope you get your January day at the beach soon...

  2. I send healing thought and energies your way Jess!

    Your babes are just too precious, and you are such a wonderful Mommy!

    I love the photo of them walking hand in I said, Precious!

    (((Big Hugs)))

  3. Such gorgeous kiddos. Based on Oliver's past experience, he'll pull through this latest illness with flying colors; it's just a matter of time.

  4. Beautiful kids and beautiful photos as usual. :)
