Because it is February and because week 7 centers around Valentine's Day I thought I'd go with the color scheme to match; red, pink, and a pretty light turquoise/blue. I changed things up this week by using all 3 x 4 photo templates plus 3 x 4 journal and filler cards.
I had a ton of photos (although many of them were terrible) to choose from because Ash, Brad, and the kids were here for a long weekend. Gonna' have to do something about my photography skills. Driving me nuts!
We began the week with John getting in a little car accident. Thankfully, not his fault and he wasn't hurt - and he was in old Blue so the truck wasn't hurt much either.
The rest of the week was anticipating the kids coming and spending time with them. Ashley, Brad, Jeff, and I had an after Valentine's Day double date at Boars Head Grille and we had a wonderful time. We sneaked out of the house while Samuel's back was turned and eating his dinner with Jarrod giving him his attention. This was enough to set the course of the night. Not one time did Samuel cry while we were gone.
Ian planned a Nerf war, even down to his own rules, before they came down because he wanted a Nerf battle with John and Jarrod. Ashley joined in, along with Wyatt, of course. They had a blast. Ian's 'rules' had him not being allowed to get shot at. Ah, that didn't happen!
Samuel has grown up quite a bit since their last visit. He allowed Jeff to hold him for quite awhile without any trouble at all. He gave numerous kisses, willingly. He smiles and plays easily. It's a nice, beautiful change.
