Week 5

How did January go by so quickly? February kindly started on a Monday.
Feb 1: I started volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House on Mondays for a few hours after work. I laughed at the first item on my to do list today. "Have snack." Betty is a hard task master.
Feb 2: Hannah was visiting my parents with the boys. They came down to see me for the afternoon since I couldn't get up to see them. Jack is 7 months old and getting so big.
Marshall loved running around in the snowy backyard, "Yeehaw!", and throwing snow balls at the tree trunk.
Feb 3: The amaryllis is blooming!
Feb 4: The area rug arrived for the living room. Almost all the pieces are here.
Feb 5: This evening I helped at Numana's One Million Meal packaging event. I happened to get stationed right next to my friend Cindy. Numana is a new local organization that partners with the Salvation Army to provide nutrious soy & rice meals (just add water) that are delivered to areas in crisis. This is the 3rd event they've held since the Haiti earthquake. Numana has no paid staff. They advertise their events and volunteers work together to package the meals. There has been a fantastic community response.
Feb 6: Tanya has amazing cake skills. She did this barnyard cake for her son's 1st birthday party.
Feb 7: The amaryllis has 5 full blooms - bonus! I was told they usually have 2 or 4 blooms. And now I promise I'll stop with pictures of it. But it has been really neat to watch it grow.
