I know these random month pictures are super random but it's just because I want to remember these random things but a whole post just doesn't work... :) 
These pictures need to be posted for 2 reasons... 1. It shows the beauty of the desert and there really is some wonderful beauty in the desert.  2. Travis actually took these pictures less than 2 hours apart!  It was just random he was in the field and took a picture and then the weather just changed drastically!   

We have a GREAT neighborhood and the kids have lots of friends.  This is Dominic who David really likes I love this picture but also I love that David always calls Dominic Domino!  It's so cute because Dominic never seems to mind... :)

We have been doing Letter of the Week just like I did with the girls and one of the activities was making cookies which David was VERY proud of and loved sharing with his sisters!  Such a sweetheart.

When my mom and Mike came we had a VERY lazy weekend and it was sooo nice to just hang out but it also means this is one of like 5 pictures we took! Don't worry we still love Mike even if he is a Cowboys fan (we actually got him this sweatshirt for Christmas. ;))

FaceTime with the Bestie and I told them to smile. HAHA This is what  got!

I met some people at a race I did in December and found out they were part of a running group that ran close to my house.  So I finally made it out to one of their weekend runs and loved being around other runners again!  I'm trying to make it out as often as I can now but this was also one of the coldest runs I've ever done and as we all know I am not a fan of COLD!!

Lined up my shirts and bibs from 2015!  I set a goal of 12 races for the year and I did 13!!  I ran 630 miles for the year I had a PR for my 5k, 8k, 10k, and half marathon and I ran races in 4 different states!  It was great racing year for me!

Travis and I both grew up going to Skateland so we were excited to take the kids skating here in El Paso!  I will admit this skating arena was not as big or nice as Skateland but the kids had a great time and now Alexis is asking for Rollerblades for her birthday! :)  It was a great family day!
Yes David spent most of his time like this but he still seemed to have fun!

This kid was a natural and did not want to leave after almost 2 hours of rollerblading.

Ryan was nervous at first but she quickly got the hang of it pretty quick and she was off!

Alexis was picked by her teacher for January Student of the month.  I say it all the time but I don't mind saying it again... These kids of mine and their ability to not only adapt and adjust to new places but also excel and exceed expectations every time it just amazing to me.  I  am so proud of what great kids and students they are and I'm thankful that they are recognized by their teachers and school as well.  Great job Alexis you definitely deserve the recognition!!

David always loves going to see his sisters at school during the day!  It's so sweet!

My mom came to visit in January for a weekend and we told her we would love for her to come but she had to know that Sunday would be spent with church and football.  She got so into it I even got her to wear one of my cards shirts! :)  So this is a random post strictly to just say GO CARDINALS!!
