Our Valentine's Day didn't start off so sweet. Piper woke up looking like death-warmed-over and proceeded to throw up and dry heave several times throughout the next hour or two. Morgan's fever was back and she was cranky as a result. I quietly put away the gifts and candy and decided to wait to see how the day progressed. I had a picture of Piper sleeping on the couch, but it seems to have disappeared from my phone. Morgan was looking at them later and may have accidentally deleted it. Oops.
They did feel better later in the day, especially after their afternoon nap. We made a trip to Morgan's school for her parent/teacher conference (more on that in a separate post) and though they were still not themselves, I think they were glad to get out of the house.
Dinnertime became our "Valentine's Day" and they were thrilled with their goodies! They also had a few sweet treats without any incidents. Last year, Morgan managed to eat treats all day long (cinnamon rolls for breakfast, cupcakes at school and a lot of treats in between), and ended up getting sick at bedtime. So glad we avoided that this year!
Morgan and Piper love their Tinker Bell and Princess "purses"! Morgan requested I take this picture as she balanced it on her head.
We took advantage of the dollar bins at Target and picked up these cute shades. Piper wears them a lot around the house and Morgan is requesting to go "to the beach," which means the cool water park we discovered last year. I had to be the bad guy and tell her it's closed until summertime. Bummer.
It looks as though both girls are on the mend and we hope we can avoid more sickness for a while, if we're lucky.
