Big Fat Photo Dump

My husband went out of town last week, and took the only working charger for the computer.  So my laptop was dead.  So I couldn't blog.  But really, there wasn't much to write about except ice and going completely insane from being inside for way too long.

I haven't posted any pictures from February at all, so let's just get to it.

Day 243 - Me and my Pax

Day 244 - Raja loves to ride and pick Xander up from school.  And the twins love it when she comes along.

Day 245 - I had started feeling bad again at this point (either the sinus infection came back or I got the flu - didn't go to the doctor to find out), so I tried to make them play by themselves and not get near me so they wouldn't get sick.  Clearly that worked.

Day 246 - I actually didn't take "real" pictures this day because I felt like poo.  But I snapped this as Xander did his extra special homework so I could show my sister.  Proud of this kid.

Day 247 - Piper found the glitter.  (This happened nearly 3 weeks ago and we're still finding glitter all over the house.)

Day 248 - Xander was just sitting on the couch, reading quietly to himself.  Lucas was working from home.  It just struck me how big he looked, siting there beside his daddy, both working.

Day 249 - My niece Kate's 7th birthday party.

Day 250 - The start of Hell Week.  Okay, maybe that's dramatic, but it was no fun.  This was a Sunday, and Xander had a stomach bug.

Day 251 - Xander stayed home from school, but started feeling much better, especially when his new game arrived in the mail.  Unfortunately, by that evening I was sick.  Then that night - Paxton.

Day 252 - I stayed in bed all day.  Since this little man was sick too, he came to join me in a bed for a little while.

Day 253 - Piper got sick this night, and I stayed up most of the night with her.  Paxton woke up early and freaked out because his sister wasn't there, so he came downstairs with us.  When Lucas got up to go to work, this is what he found.

Day 254 - This little girl was feeling much better, and we were all on the upswing.  We thought.

Just for fun - the left was almost exactly one year before the right.  Silly girl.

Day 255 - This is the day that Lucas got sick, but this picture is much cuter than a representation of that.

Day 256 - Valentine's Day!  Lucas's brother called and said he and his family were tired of the Boone cold and heading down to our town to go bowling.  Me and Xander joined them (Lucas was still sickly) and bowled, played arcade games, laser tag, and then the boys did a laser maze which they were super excited about.

Day 257 - After church we went by my parents' house to hang out for a bit.  Xander and Piper decided to put on a performance for us.

Day 258 - Lucas left for sunny California just as it started snowing here.  Then a layer of ice covered the snow.  No fun to play in, but really hard to drive in.  No good.

Day 259 - I love this picture so stinking much.  We were stuck in the house with each other all day, so Xander had no choice but to play with his siblings.  Here Paxton was sitting on the couch and Xander would run out and scare him.  (Not sure why Pax was wearing the hat.  And no pants.  It was a snow day.  Anything goes.)

Day 260 - Boredom reached another level.  Xander decided to recreate some of the videos they watch on YouTube where people open up hidden toys - like these hidden in Play Doh.  We made several videos this week (all terrible quality) and now Xander wants his own YouTube channel.

Day 261 - This day school was actually back in session, but Xander couldn't go because he got pink eye.  Because OF COURSE he did.  Sinus infections and flu and stomach bugs and ice storms aren't nearly enough for one month.

Day 262 - The twins won't nap in their room anymore, and it has drastically cut my time to get things done.  This day I scrubbed this bathroom on hands and knees, then a bit later I gave the twins a snack (in the living room) and ran downstairs to grab laundry.  I came back to this craziness.  So glad I just scrubbed those floors.

Day 263 - Oh, and speaking of the twins not napping in their room. . . This happens every now and then.

Whew.  I'm still not completely caught up, but I am really tired, so I'm calling it a night.  Thanks for sticking with me, friends.
