Not much new

Not much is new in the Pietig household.  We have the day off today for MLK Jr. Day and spent it cleaning--exciting, huh?

Over Christmas break, we tried the 3 day potty training method with Payton.  This method did not work for us, but it did give us a good start.  She had several accidents on the carpet, needlesss to say, we had to borrow a carpet cleaner from a friend on the last day of the method.  She has been in training pants at daycare, and Karla told me on Friday that she thinks Payton is ready to be in underwear!  :)

Also, over Christmas break Payton had her second-ever dentist appointment.  Her bottom 2 year molars are popping through, but her top ones haven't come in yet.  Overall, the appointment went very well and the dentist said her teeth look great!

The weather here has been unseasonably warm.  There was one day earlier this month that I think got up to 62 degrees!  You can't complain about that, especially on recess duty days!  :)  Last week after school I had to scrape my car for the first time this year.  I couldn't even find my scraper -- had to dig it out of the back of the trunk.  Also, we haven't had any snow days so far! Usually at this time, we've had two or three by now.  I would like to get some snow here so we can take Payton sledding.

Well, I was just stopping in the update the blog, but I guess I don't have much to report.  This month is pretty calm for us, with not much on the calendar.  Then February is birthday-season!  So many in our family with birthdays - it's just crazy.  We have our 2nd annual trip to Honey Creek resort planned, so we are pumped for that.
