What a week ... already.

Well, it's a week of preparation here. Or at least it was supposed to be until we got sick. Now we are just getting by...

Two days ago Tell was throwing up and Ever had a little stomach bug. Yesterday I realized that an "owie" on her nose was probably impetigo (and it is). Then last night Ever got sick and threw up on nearly every blanket we own. Poor little peach. Today she is burning up and feeling crummy and Tell doesn't seem too peppy either.

Right now she's zonked out on the couch and Tell is refusing to be put down. A very quiet evening.

But I have to say that Ever started my week off beautifully with tulips from the store that Bryan said she picked out on her own and asked if she could buy for Mama. My girl. Feel better soon. I love you to the moon and back.

A Beautiful Week in Alaska.

Well, we had a beautiful week here with some very Alaska events:
::We had -30 degree weather
::We had 30 degree weather and finally got to enjoy being outside again!
::We had a day where it took Bry and I a couple minutes to figure out whether what we were looking at was the sun or the moon. Hmm... maybe says more about us than Alaska. Not sure.
::We had a small earthquake.
::We had moose wandering about.

It seems like I had more to go with that list, but I can't currently remember. As it is, I have a messy kitchen, piles of clothes to tend to, messes everywhere, and a cup of wine waiting for me. I realized as I typed that sentence that those are all blessings.
Thank you.

I just had to include this picture because so many parts of it make me giggle -- both of them trying to cram their little faces into the tiny mirror to see how cute they are, the bright purple princess dress and sweet lil' apron, the chubby little baby toes, and the wolf feet and tail that is like a third person in the picture.
