Back to Routines (And Some Pics W/My Fancy Camera)

It's been a hectic week and a half getting back to work and school and routines. I kind of can't even believe Christmas and New Year's Eve/Day was just a couple weeks ago. The pace of life is fast and my head is spinning a little. This whole working mom thing is no joke! It's been good, it's been upsetting, it's been fine, it's been fun, it's been up, it's been down, it's been ahhhhhh!

Getting back into routines has been a little bit like El Nino...all weird and confusing. But we are trying to make the best of it, as we do. 

Here are a few pictures from the last couple weeks of the past couple weeks (some pics pre- dive back into regular life): 

We spent a few days in Pittsburgh. It's the home base for part of my family and my dad and brothers and sister meet up after Christmas every year at my dad's house. I love Pittsburgh.

El Nino was at it big time in the was 70 degrees on December 28! Whaaat?

Fun fact about Pittsburgh...Tim and I fell in love in this city. I lived there, he lived in Detroit area and we had a long distance romance for 6 months.

My dad has a Karaoke machine and OH MY GOD I LOVED IT!!!!!! And somewhat surprisingly so did Peyton. 

Oh El Nino....I sense a dark and stormy change on the horizon...

After we got home we did the New Year's Eve thing, but I fell asleep before midnight. Waaaa. Then we kicked off the Youngblood winter sports season with Wade's basketball game. 

Last weekend it was sunny and warm and weird. I know everyone loves the warmth, but we live in Michigan and it's January and it's not right!  I like things in order,  no breakfast for dinner for me. I like winter in January summer in July. But it was nice to get the kids outside.

The day after the basketball in the driveway we got snow!!!! And everything was as it should be. Thank you weird El Nino weather pattern.

The trampoline is fun in the winter too!!! 

Rufus and Cosi were so excited about the snow.

 Check out some other pictures I've taken with my Fancy New Camera:
