What a week...

Well, this was not a good week.  Last weekend, Paige came down with some horrible bug and missed the entire week of school.  She would barely drink anything, wasn't interested in any food, and she pretty much just wanted to lay around and and night.  Each day she did seem to improve slightly, but she was still very lethargic and weak.  We saw Dr. Whitworth on Thursday and by that afternoon, she started to improve.  Friday and yesterday were great days, and today has been even better.  She's back to making messes, having tantrums, scattering Cheerios everywhere, and being her usual silly self.

Grandma Darlene came over yesterday and we played outside a bit...poor Paige hadn't been outside all week, so this girl needs some sun!  I can't wait until pool time comes :)

Reese was NOT in a picture-taking mood, so I just snapped one of her and let her be...

Paige loved swinging...I could tell she missed it because that's her favorite thing to do on the playground at school.  I really hate that she missed the whole week just before Spring Break :(  But there was no way she could've gone.  This little face is definitely the face of someone who is feeling better!  And, yes, she totes either Legos or cups with her everywhere...I believe in almost every picture I take of her she's holding them.

These are from a random living room photo shoot this afternoon...I have to take these moments when I can!  Reese was laughing over something, so I took advantage and snapped away.

Pip was rocking in the recliner and she was also giggling over something, so I couldn't not take her pictures :)  She's just so dang adorable!  I trimmed her bangs yesterday...not the greatest job, but better than they were, hanging in her eyes!

Here's to a better week...please don't let anyone else get sick!  See you next weekend :)

Happy St. Patty's Day!

Happy St. Patty's Day....a day late!  I started this blog post last night and just didn't get it finished.  I have some pictures of the sillies to share with you today.  The girls wore their green shirts this week...and one I bought for Reese wound up being too big, so it will have to wait until next year.

Paige was in a silly mood before bed...she kept thrashing around, hence the 80s rocker hairdo :)

Reese in her green shirt...showing off her big girl teeth.  I swear, they are growing in so fast!  She looks so different every day.

Paige in her rainbow Hello Kitty shirt...she was just too busy to pose, so I got what I could :)

Saturday night was the Our Children's Academy St. Patty's Day Gala & Auction.  This was our 4th time going, and it was awesome.  Lots of money was raised for the school.  I wish we were millionaires so we could just donate a huge chunk to OCA to build the new school! 

Paige started feeling yucky right before we left.  She's still not feeling well...she didn't go to school today.  She feels feverish on and off, and she just wants to lay around and doze off.  She's eating & drinking a little, but she definitely feels bad.  Poor baby!  This is the first time she's been sick this school year.

And some cute pics of Reese from yesterday...wearing her St. Patty's jammies (which she wears all the time...haha).

That's all for now...have a great week!

13 years :)

This is going to be quick because it's 10:30 pm on a Sunday....the time-change Sunday...and I'm tired!  Lots of cute pictures from random happenings throughout the week.  Monday is Marshall's and my 13th!  The years have surely flown by.  We celebrated tonight instead by going to dinner at the Capital Grille in Orlando.  I'm still quite full as I sit here typing :)  I realized as I was getting ready for our date that I seriously need some new dress clothes!  I honestly don't go anywhere that requires me to dress up, so I don't have many outfits.  I live at the gym, so most of my wardrobe consists of tanks, shorts & yoga pants!  Anyway, I've had these black capris for YEARS...and I do mean well as this random pink top.  I'm surprised the fabric is still holding together!  I have to find a dress to wear to the OCA Gala coming up next weekend....I refuse to wear decade old clothing....or the dress I wore last year...haha.  Here's our picture...thanks, Mom, for taking it!

Random pictures from the week....I didn't have any pictures from the previous week, so that's why I didn't post last Sunday.  Paige got sick....all that gunk that Marshall & I had, so she was out of sorts for a few days.  She mainly just had a cough & runny nose, but no fever or anything like that.  This is the first time all year she's gotten sick, and Reese never did get it.  Hail to the vitamins they're taking!  They are really doing a wonderful job on the girls' immune systems :)  Anyway, here are the girls being silly, as usual.

More silliness from Reesie....I just LOVE this first picture!  Such a genuine smile, and you can really see those teeth coming in!

We had lunch at Bok Tower on was packed!  We didn't visit the tower, but the girls wanted to hang around the fountain the whole time anyway.  Paige is obsessed with running water, so you'll see her excited face in these pictures.  Reese found some cool leaves to study, so they were both extremely happy.  Except for the one photo of Paige having a fit....over what?  I have no idea.

A few camera phone pictures....bath time & iPad time :)

That's all for this week! I hope you have a great one!
