Well, I thought things were getting better around here, but now Spencer and I are enjoying our turn at being sick. I guess I am over due as it has been a year or 2 since I was really sick, however, that thought doesn't comfort me much at the moment. Instead I'll just think back on a fun bright spot in an otherwise yucky week last week. As I mentioned in my last post, Ty missed his Valentines party at school. Not really a big deal, but he had been counting down the days til the party for some time. I felt bad that he was going to miss it, so we decided to have a party of our own on Friday. We started out by creating some surprise Valentines for dad and then driving them down to the the high school and decorating Marc's car while he worked. The boys were so excited to surprise their dad! Here are a few pictures of their amazing works of art: I was proud of Ty! He wrote the sentiment all by himself--zero help from me--and for Ty, that is quite an achievement! Blake liked the stickers best: Spencer didn't seem too think much of his. I coaxed him into holding his for a moment and scribbling a little, but that was the extent of his interest in the activity. He might have enjoyed decorating the car more, but he fell asleep on the way down to the school. After surprising Daddy we went home and decorated the house. We had hearts and balloons everywhere for a few hours! Very fun! We topped the night off with a special "breakfast for dinner" complete with heart shaped pancakes with red syrup, pink milk, and a giant heart shaped chocolate chip cookie for dessert. I didn't take any photos of our special dinner, but here is a little something I whipped up earlier in the month, just in case any of you doubt my domestic skills ;) It really was a fun day--even Ty seemed content despite the change in plans for him!

Well, I didn't get as much done this week as I had hoped. Ty came down with the flu on Monday and later tested positive for Strep throat. He missed school all week--including his class picture and his class Valentines day party. Poor thing...at least he is doing much better now and can go back to school on Monday. Blake seemed to catch a milder version of what Ty had, and he too is starting to do better now. So far no one else has got it so I'll keep crossing my fingers that it stays that way and the worst has passed. I didn't get much sleep at the beginning of the week and I can tell my body is starting to make up for that now. Despite the all the craziness of this past week I did get a little bit of photo editing in. This session isn't done yet (Sorry Stacey)--but I'm getting close. Here is a little sneak peek for you while you wait: I also loved the first one in color--I couldn't decide which way was better. Happy friday night everyone!

It has been a long time since I posted any photo shoots, so I thought tonight would be a good time to show off these little ladies. They have been waiting a long to to appear on my blog--Since last September I believe--so here is a little peek at my favorites from their sessions:
