Wow, we have had some cold days lately, and this week looks to be freezing as well. I’m thinking my oldest son will have to make up some school days at the end of the year, because they’ve had so many snow days already!

I admit, my Christmas tree is still up, although without the presents underneath.
I keep saying “this week” I’ll take it down, but part of it is, we do enjoy the soft glow
the lights give off and the sparkle, and my youngest is really reluctant for me to take it down,
and the other part of it is finding the time and energy to tackle it!  , Meal Plan for the Week of January 26th,
