Theme: Spirit

week of February 21st
I admittedly put off the theme this week because I just couldn't decide where I wanted to go with it. My initial thought was to do something spiritual, but I never came up with a good idea and it's been my turn to teach my daughter's preschool group this week so I had a lot going on. The unit I am teaching is called "the joy of spontaneous delight" and has actually been quite fun. Then I realized that this happiness in children, who just want to laugh and play and imagine, and that we tend to lose along the way as we grow up, fits this category too. You can see the carefree spirit in their eyes when we play a game or tell a silly story and I've been trying really hard to get a little of it back in me this week. And it's definitely hard!

Theme: Romance

Week of February 14th
I don't consider myself to be very girly. I don't wear a lot of jewelry or spend a lot of time on my hair, but I do like to feel cute. Maybe I should classify myself as a minimalist when it comes to girly things. However, I am definitely still a romantic at heart! I want love notes and flowers as much as the next girl :-)! For Valentine's my husband brought me some beautiful pink tulips which were so perfect for me and I have loved having them in the kitchen all week long. It will be sad to see them go. There is definitely something that only fresh flowers can bring to a room!

I had so much fun taking pictures of sweet little Audrey to celebrate her 4th birthday. She was a little shy, but seemed more willing to smile once she got her Spiderman costume on. I LOVE that her favorite thing is Spiderman! I seriously don't even think my daughters have any idea who he is :-). We snuck in a few shots of her super cute little brother at the end too.

Theme: Body Parts

Week of Feb 7th
I really was planning to do something a little less obvious than eyes, but I have been having a rough week with this cold weather and here is it Friday already. I finally got out my camera today to take pictures of Miss Adeline doing her newest puzzle and Preston walked over to "see it" on the back of the camera and I snagged this one really quickly. I love his hazel eyes but sometimes they photograph darker than they really are, so I'm always happy to capture their true cuteness. So, although it's lazy of me, here is my "Eyes" picture for this week :-).

Theme: Sleep

Week of January 31st
Although I was hoping to get a cute picture of one of my kiddos sleeping, it is too dark to get a good one at night. Little Preston is such a light sleeper that I was only brave enough to attempt one click during one nap and he wasn't in a great position. So, it was a no go. Luckily, Tom and Beauty sleep hours upon hours each day and sometimes they look pretty cute doing it too :-).
