Happy Friday friends! I hope you've had a great week. We are finally on the tail end of this icky virus everyone has had. We really didn't venture out much over the past week, other than to the doctor and runs to the pharmacy. But, this weekend we are looking forward to a visit from my Mother-in-Law, and my sister and niece! And, my older daughter is performing in a play with her drama group. It will be her first stage appearance, so that's pretty exciting!

I didn't take any pictures of all the ailing bodies around here this week, so I have just a few iPhone shots of a pretty blue sky, our resident sock-eater back to normal after surgery, and some little notes my daughter leaves me. I took a pic so I'd remember them - especially on days when teenage mood swings take over. ;)  How was your week?

Happy weekend all! This week we returned to our homeshool co-op for the spring semester. The kids were excited to go back. Unfortunately, we seem to have collected another virus of some sort around here, and the boys are down for the count. I'm realllly hoping it leaves us soon. They seem pretty miserable.

Hubs bought tickets to an ODU basketball game for a fun family night out. We went last weekend and it turned out to be a really exciting game! ODU was down quite a bit for a while, but they ended up pulling off the biggest comeback in the school's history to win! It was a great night.

Happy Friday friends! I hope you had a lovely New Year's celebration. We kept it low key and watched the ball drop on TV with this kids. New Year's Day, we went to my mom and stepdad's for some family fun and yummy BBQ. It was a warm day, in the upper 60's, so we enjoyed some fresh air and played corn hole for a while. What did you do to celebrate? 

Last weekend, we also went to Adventure Park in Virginia Beach. Last year my mom and stepdad bought the kids ticket to the park, which features outdoor climbing and ziplining courses. Unfortunately, it took us a whole year to find a weekend when I wasn't working, the weather wasn't awful, and no one was sick. But, it was worth the wait because it was tons of fun! It was a mild day, though a wee bit chilly later in the afternoon. The kids got a great workout though so the cool air didn't bother them a bit. Hubs and I didn't climb this time, but it would be fun to go back another day and give it a go. I'm not fond of heights, but zipling through the trees might make it worthwhile. 

How was your week? 

All pics are iPhone. Hubs gets a little irritated when I drag my big camera everywhere. But, I've been irritated with the lack of decent family photos over the past year. I spend SO much time and energy making beautiful images for other families and couples, and I could kick myself for not making the same effort for my own family. This year, I am recommitting to at least a Project 52. My kids are growing by leaps and bounds, and I will have great photos to look back on. It's important. So, feel free to give me a tongue-lashing if you find I've slid back into only phone photos this year! I thank you in advance. :)

Happy Friday! As usual, Christmas flew by. It was a whirlwind, but we enjoyed tons of fun and lots of family time together. I'm now back into the swing of work with a wedding editing marathon, but it was super nice to have a short break. 

Last week we also had a pet emergency. Our resident sock-eater had to be admitted at the emergency vet for surgery to extract a sock from his intestines. That was rather stressful and pretty much NO fun at all, not to mention incredibly expensive. But, fortunately he is home now and doing well. Already back to trying his old tricks, so he's keeping us on our toes!

How was your holiday week?

Happy Friday! I can't believe it's almost Christmas and I am still so far behind! I've managed to button up nearly all the holiday shopping, but baking, wrapping, visiting, meal planning, and all the extra prep work are still not nearly finished. I've been sick for weeks and struggling to keep up with work, but I am finally coming out of the slump. We also had another pet emergency this week. : ( One of our Danes has something - probably socks because he's rather fond of them - lodged in his intestines. We've been on high alert with him all week and are praying it passes so that he can be spared surgery.

Sooooooo, general family madness, work madness, and holiday madness all wrapped up in one fun month! Anyway, my photos this week are pretty weak. Only a few iPhone shots, and pretty terrible ones at that. We did go ice skating, and Little Miss had a roller skating party to attend. We've also been crafting gifts, so the house is a disaster zone, but we've found a bit of holiday spirit, so yay for that. How's your month going?

Happy Friday! Another week closer to Christmas and I have SO much left to do. How about you? This week I was sick, again, ugh. Fortunately just a cold, but a nuisance with so much to do. The kids had their final week of Homeschool co-op before winter break and I plowed through lots of editing. Little Miss lost a tooth as well. How was your week?

Cold beach session!

Tree topping and toothless.
