First Day ~ January

I will be linking up on the first of each month this year with Nicole at Journey to Josie.

This is a fun way to show our ordinary lives on the first day of each month. It consists of taking photos of all of the normal activities of our day and then writing a post about them. If you would like to join along, link up with Nicole.

Here are photos to chronicle January 1, 2013, for the Taulman family.

This was actually from yesterday. But Eli and our neighbor built this by themselves.

Yummy icicles!

Speaks for itself, no?

More icicles before the snowball fight.

And it's ON!

My sweet niece Ashtyn at the salon while my sister did my hair.

Leftover Chinese food for lunch.

What our back entry looks like when there is snow outside.

Some necessities ... sweet tea and chocolate chip cookies.

My new hair color and cut (actually it looks pretty much the same, just better!) Man I hate the way I look in mirror shots. And, no makeup. Can you say "pale"?

Dawson cozied up watching The Amazing Spiderman with Brynne and I.

Gathering of the Barbies for bath pool time.


Lots of this being taken! Coughs abound!!

My baby Quincy.

The after party in the sink.

My after party once the kids were in bed.


  1. Laughing at the Barbie fun which makes me sadly nostalgic that my girls have outgrown that. Happy New Year!

  2. Love it! Looks like an awesome day!

  3. Thanks for giving us a peek into your day. We so wish for snow down our way. Driving to Asheville on Saturday for the day so maybe we will see some in the mountains.

  4. Great idea. Loved the peek into your day. And dang, girl! I wish I looked like that with no make-up!

  5. Oh that snow looks so good to me right now!

  6. Love your photos...thanks for sharing
    And, thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm looking forward to reading the Ladybug books.


We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
