The most precious sick face
This was Little Man around noon. I had given him a bath and he wanted to snuggle right back up in bed with me.
At three, I left our sick boy in the capable hands of his Daddy, and took the girls to our good friends Reed and Nikki's house for their son Eli's seventh birthday party. Eli loves the show Minute To Win It, so that was the theme for the party. The kids took part in several fun games and everyone won a prize. I thought it was a great idea and the kids had a blast!

The object was to wiggle the cookie from your forehead down to your mouth. It was hilarious.

I LOVE Leah's smile in this picture. She thought the best part was just getting to eat the cookie when the timer went off!
After a few games, I left to go home and help care for our boy so Mike could get back to work. (Random work update: Mike is still doing free lance graphic design/illustration/film projects out of our home office. It is working out great!) Our friends brought the girls home later so we could have a few quiet hours at home with Lucas. Hannah and Leah came home at 8:30, hopped in the bathtub, then I tucked them into bed.
One of the many reasons I write my blog is to document these days of having little kids at home. I want to be able to look back one day when my kids ask me, "What did we do when we were little?" and be able to point out what our days actually looked like. They were messy, they were exhausting, and they involved puke and birthday parties all within a 24 hour time period. But they were FULL and WONDERFUL and I wouldn't have it any other way.
