And today, after the youth luncheon that was held in our home right after church, I unabashedly went to bed and slept for 3 or 4 hours. I woke up when my mom called at around 7:30 pm and talked to her for a long time and then headed to my friend's house to watch Downton Abbey.
And while I was asleep, my wonderful husband took the Sunday Photo:
I'm not complaining. This is real life, people. Sophia, with Bria's pajama pants on under her Sunday dress, and her favorite cheetah-printed Santa hat (this child is obsessed with cheetah print, I think I've mentioned before). Chloe with her Under Armour running tights (which she unfortunately wore as leggings to church) and the top half of her PJs. And Bria, annoyed as heck that she is being made to take this photo. And my kitchen, which is thankfully clean enough that I don't have to feel embarrassed about posting these photos.
But guess what? Something EPIC happened yesterday!
THE SUN CAME OUT TO PLAY!
So, naturally, in the case of an amazing event such as this, I sent the girls outside and I grabbed my camera to take photos of them in the snow and the sunshine. (Bria was at a birthday party.)
A few of my favorites--please notice how they all highlight the sunshine. I am definitely a solar-powered sort of person.
|I am in love with this photo of Chloe. She was mad at me for taking it because she thought she'd look silly with snow in her hair. She's gorgeous, end of story.|
|Here comes the sun....and I say, it's all right.|
|Sunny Sophia. I think it's quite rare to find this child without some sort of cheetah item on her person.|
|View of the back of our house. Did I mention we have another polar vortex headed our way? Also, it's time to shovel the roof. The joys of living in a winter wonderland.|
|Sunshine. Sledding. Joy. Who could ask for more?|
