Butterfly Man to the Rescue
A couple weekends ago, we were all up until 1 AM with poor Annelise when an uncontrollable coughing fit hit her at bedtime. (Reactive airway - even her albuterol didn't tame it; I almost took her to LifeTime to sit in the pro strength steam room at midnight.) She was 100% fine the next day, but I never want to forget how Will was the one to get her to stop crying: he got her giant costume butterfly wings out of her closet & appeared as Butterfly Man to make her smile & save the day. They irritate each other often...but they do truly love each other so much. ❤
6 years ago, JB bought Annelise this big bear for Valentine's...and all on her own 3-yr-old self, she named him Peyton Mayonnaise. (I'm a Redskin fan, and we were living in Chicago - it was all her!) Ever since, Peyton has held a special place in our hearts, and Annelise was so excited to snuggle up with her Peyton that night & tell him congrats! :-P
One of JB's friends took this pic of us at the Mardi Gras ball a few weeks ago! I love it - it's so *us*
One of my members brought Mardi Gras beads for everyone in my Zumba class last week!!! It was so sweet & festive!!! Here's about half of us after cool down:
I roller skated for the first time in probably ~20 years on Saturday at one of our Cheertator's daughter's bday party! I eased back into it way more quickly than I anticipated. :-)
I threw Annelise's class Valentine's party at school... It may have gotten a bit rowdy... ;-)
My amazing husband gifted me with this Gratitude Apothecary Jar. ❤ The basic premise is to fill it with pennies & notes, each representing something you're thankful for that day. I'm thankful for him, for being my true partner in life!
