Embracing the Weather

We just had a lovely weekend full of sunlight with a hint of warmth.  And believe you me we drank it up like we haven't drank before.  We're still fairly new to the Northern California area and are trying to get used to the cold weather.  (Which, I suppose really isn't THAT cold considering how cold it can get in other places!)  But, coming from Southern California it is still pretty cold!  In fact, I saw that it was 80 down there this past weekend (tear drop!).  Non-the-less we took full advantage of the warm sun by going on walks, riding bikes and went to a couple of different parks.  Without further ado here are some photos from our Sunday Funday!

Fairy wings and a tiarra are always a must in this family!

Emily's new thing is to stick out her tongue... not sure of the point of this but at least it's harmless!

Em is love'n some daddy time!

Cheers to you and good weather!

Do you ever have one of those days where even the toy dinosaur gets a time out?

P.S. Thanks Jim, for the photo!

I Love Being a Mom

I remember as a child (and still today), that when I'm sick, there's nothing better than having my mom by my side rubbing my back, making soup, or just watching a movie with me.  That is what we've been doing for the better part of the day.  We also threw in some puzzle time and cuddling with books.  Gracie, my oldest had a hot little head last night and woke up with it this morning.  She had to miss school and was not happy about it. 
This is how Gracie looked most of the day.  Poor little thing! 

Emily, my youngest has the sniffles and is a little lethargic as well.  Although, when I brought out the camera she managed to smile and say cheese about 50 times!
Not sure if you can see, but her left nostril is a little runny!

  They are both very quiet and moving slowly; and those who know my kiddos know that this is not the norm for them.  But I sure will drink up the cuddling, nuzzling and caring for that I can during this time. 

Gotta love sisterly love.  Notice that Gracie is still wearing a crown??  A princess' job is never done!
 Get well soon girls... this quietness is really starting to freak me out!
