{sick} mommy...

I was really sick today. So sick that I had to call Mark and ask him to come home from work and take care of the kiddos..
Mark was home within a half hour and brought home stuff to make homemade chicken noodle soup as well as a magezine for me to read while laying on the couch.

Jack brought me his blanket from his bed and made sure I was 'snuggly wuggly'

My view from the couch...

I have to say I have the best guys!!!
Thanks Mark and Jack for caring for me today.

Jax bday dinner...{Hyashi}

Jax bday dinner request was Hyashi for Sushi!!! Have you ever known a 4 year old to choose sushi over Chuck E Cheese? He is so funny.
He really wanted to see the 'funny guy' which is what he calls the guy who cooks and puts on a show. He told us that when he grows up he wants to be the 'funny guy'
He was so funny at dinner. He was giving us a play by play of what was going to happen next.
And he couldn't eat that sushi fast enough! I look forward to Mommy and son sushi dates in the future!! Daddy doesn't like it...
Wanna see the rest of the pics from our dinner? Just go here:
Disclaimer: these images are all straight out of the camera...I didn't take the time to edit them. Mark always tells me I should just take a picture and leave it at that instead of always editing.
In other words I am practising at just taking 'snapshots'
He also tells me to just enjoy moments without having to photograph every second...but I want to remember these moments and the pictures help me to remember????

Mr. & Mrs. Doctorian

This is one of the sweetest couples Mark and I have ever photographed! Actually the whole wedding party and the parents were all so so so nice! They were so easy going and laid back. And they were so grateful. They just kept thanking us over and over for being there and taking the pictures!
Hope you guys are having a great time in MEXICO!!!! SO jealous!! :)

{Sleep over}

He's been looking forward to spending the night with 'Aunt Becky in her new yellow house in Normal.' He gets to have a dog for a night, play in the creek and search for kitties!! He is soo excited. He gave us really quick hugs and kisses and he was off with his most favorite person in the world!! I love their bond. So sweet!

Cake Decorator...I am not!

Well I tried...But I think I will leave this one up to the pros! I thought I could make Jax bday problem. I was wrong!! It looks really bad. But at least I tried. And Jack likes his "pretend birthday cake" as he keeps calling it.
So now I know I need to just buy birthday cakes from now on! At least I tried it a week before his party so I wasn't scrambling to get a replacement at the last minute!!

Ava has been crawling for a few months now and her little knees are always dirty. So I made her little leggies. You've probably seen babylegs...I put them on her often as well. Well I found knee high socks and decided to make my own for a lot cheaper. These are shorte ones just to cover her knees but I also made some longer ones to cover her whole leg for those cooler days.
