Farewell, January!

It has been a great week for us...yay! Last week was not so good, with us all taking a turn at being sick. The girls had a great week at school, and I actually got a lot done around the house. On Friday, Reese's class got to see a real police officer and his car. She even got to sit in it! I wish I could have known...I would have hung out and taken pictures. I was told she had a great time!

This time next week, Paige will be the big T-W-O! Next Saturday is the big day. I can't believe two years have almost gone by. She's so funny these days. She thinks she owns the house. I could just sit and watch her all day...she is always making everyone smile :)

Without further ado, here are the week's pictures.

Paige playing Curtain Peek-A-Boo again :)

Reese making herself at home on the table...haha.

Paige and me goofing around at my desk :)

Yesterday, Reese decided she'd help herself to some snacks. She swiped a bag of chips and then the Cheerios! Talk about a couch potato!!

Once she was full, she decided to read :) (Yep, we're still getting good wear out of our Christmas shirts :))

Enjoying the nice weather on the patio...I can't get this girl to stand still for a picture for anything! Looks like she is finally an "action-shot girl."

A weird kind of week...

What a strange week it has been...for Marshall and me, especially. Little did I know when I typed my post last Sunday that I would wake up in the middle of the night with a nasty stomach bug! I spent MLK Day laying there, barely able to hobble around the house. Thank goodness my amazing husband was available to take care of the girls! It's a good thing I started to feel better later that night because Marshall woke up in the middle of the night with the same gunk! He spent all Tuesday doing what I did on Monday. By Wednesday, we were both on the road to recovery, but still not at 100%. I didn't exercise for those three days, and boy did I miss it! I was back to teaching spinning on Thursday, and although it was hard, it felt great to be back to "normal."

Wednesday night, Paige started coughing, so off to Dr. LaRue we went on Thursday. She's on antibiotics and is doing well. Reese is also doing well...she has been dying to go 4-wheeling, so her Daddy took her for a ride yesterday :)

So, needless to say, last week was one of those weeks where I didn't even realize what day it was. Before I knew it, Friday was here, and so was the weekend! It was cold again, so we didn't do much of anything except hang around the house in our jammies :)

Here are the pictures I took from the past week...

Here is Paige, roaming around the doctor's office. She has to get naked to be weighed, but she wanted to walk around, so I put her socks & shoes back on her. Don't you love this outfit?

Here she is afterward...all worn out from crying! Who knew it would be so traumatic to have someone look in your ears?!

My silly little thumbsucker :)

Some random pictures of Reese...with a gorgeous smile!

Two sisters actually sharing the cheerio stash!

Paige being Paige :)

January is half over?

This week was going great until Friday...Paige got sick at school and vomited all over her teacher. I rushed to get her and brought her home. She perked up by that evening, and is now appearing to feel just fine. I guess she caught some little bug going around. Reese woke up yesterday morning with a runny nose...ugh! Everyone has been well for about a month, so I guess it's our turn to get the gunk. I'm still trying to invent a bubble for them to live in so they don't have to be exposed to all those nasty germs out there!

Other than that, it has been a typical week...which is always good! I like it when nothing major happens :)

Here are this week's pictures...

Paige loves to play in the curtains now...apparently it's what all the kids are doing :)

Reese likes to sit on the couch like it's a horse.

I love these pictures of her from Friday night! She is genuinely having a fantastic time with her Daddy :)
I love her hair looks like a Miss USA hairdo...haha!

My all-time favorite picture of the week...

Paige being her usual silly self :) (Yes, I know black & brown don't really go together, but we didn't even leave the house on this day!)

I can't ever get the camera fast enough to get a picture of her actually inside the Dora ball here she is getting out :)
