Valentines and Other Cuteness!

These pictures are a hodge podge of randomness, but each set tells a little peice of the story that has been our life this month. First, some Valentine cheer straight from our home to yours. I found these cute little bowls at Micheal's craft store and thought they would display some yummy M & M's very nicely. These goodies have since been ingested, but we'll pretend they still looking like this:).Next, a picture that Travis will surely KILL me for putting on the blog, complete with him in his lovely Super Man pants given to him by his mother for Christmas, but that so aptly epitomizes the pathetic state our family has been in for the past few months as we've been hit by one illness after the other. We're tired folks and ready for spring in more ways than you can ever know! This has got to be the most hilarious position my two men have ever fallen asleep together in!Here's my sweet Peanut making her Valentine box for school. She is such a little crafter, I love to watch her go to town being creative and artistic. She also addressed all her Valentines for her friends at school all by herself, she was so proud. "All by herself" seems to be the theme for Emma right now. She insisted on making her own lunch for school this morning and even had to write the note on her napkin...from ME go figure! The note read, "Emma, I have a hug waiting for you when you get home. Love, Mommy". Then she proceeded to tell me how excited she was for that hug...that was her idea. The girl cracks me up and blesses my heart!Next up, sibling love. These were taken some morning when I wasn't ready to face the day from being up all night with sick kids and self, so we were undoubtedly watching cartoons, waiting for mommy to emerge from her sleep-deprived stooper.
This one of Sawyer reminds me of a look my dad used to give, something in the eyes. I love it when he reminds me of my dad!
yes, vegging out, winter time, you've over-stayed your welcome!Here we have the "I'm too cool for Kool Aid" look. And I'll give you one guess as to which three year old girl taught him how to color on himself;). But what else can you do when you're one and cooped up in the house all day?Ah...pure sweetness! Sawyer has this thing about wanting to hold wrapped up dolls. Emma will wrap them for him and he just can't wait to get ahold of the little bundle. A daddy in the making... or a guy who will really like pigs in a blanket, one of the two. And last, but not least, here are some pictures of Emma's bike-riding lessons. I am amazed how fast she picked it up! Now from these pictures, it appears that Daddy taught her this monumental skill. But for the record, yours truely ran twice around the block and numerous times back and forth in front of the house with her and was the first one to successfully let go before these pictures. When I was beat and profusely sweating, I gave the reigns to Travis and grabbed my camera. But whatever, she learned in less than an hour, yay Emma! Now it's just perfecting the take off and stopping part. We'll try again on the next sunny day.

Wheh, I may need to blog twice a week to avoid these long posts, but it feels good to get them up nontheless. I'm happy to report, we are all on the mend...for now. Heres hoping AND praying we can have a little break from germs and that spring gets here soon!

I love that picture of Travis and Sawyer sleeping on the couch.

Yay for Emma and the bike. How fun. I love her heart hair as well. You are so creative. You'll have to teach me how to do little girl hair. I loved all the pictures. I'm glad you had a nice weekend with mom and I can't wait to see the photos of the old house.
Love you!
