More pictures and an update

We had a fun weekend this last weekend. Our friends Christy and Cheryl from Oregon came with there five kids collectively and stayed from Thursday night to Sunday afternoon. We took Kaylin and Blake's pictures while they were here as well as a picture of my kids all together which is a most difficult project when the mother is the photographer! It was so great having all of them!

After they left we took a family nap together and I woke up feeling a little under the weather. Turns out I ended up feeling a lot under the weather and threw up three times during the night and once in the morning. I felt completely horrible for most of the day yesterday with my head pounding and my stomach and back aching like crazy. Emma was so sweet and fixed the kids' breakfast. Ben had no clue I was sick and got up early for a 7:30 meeting. He came home later in the morning and brought me saltines and gatorade and fed the kids lunch.. After another meeting he came back and took care of the kids who were destroying the house (in a creative way) and gave them some more food and a little extra guidance. Once I was feeling stable enough and brave enough to try tylenol on a slightly empty stomach, I felt so much better. I think I am on the up swing now but will definitely stay in today and be still as much as possible. Time to have some toast!

I heard you were sick. Gross. Sorry. I love your pictures, once again. How shall we go about the pics of Miles? I think you need to email them to me again... ps. How were there five kids collectively? I'm confused. I keep counting seven. How sick were you?

Oops. I counted Cheryl and Christy's kids as five instead of four. It just seemed like five! And, yes, the seven total was what I got as well!

Hope you feel better soon! Those pics are fantastic!

Cute pics! I'm glad you guys had fun together. That does sound like a lot of children, though... ;)

Would you mind if I "borrowed" one or two of these pictures of Blake? I'm his Prayer Warrior this year and these would just be so cute to have around my house to remind me to pray for him. :)

Hope you are feeling better now.

Lynsey,

As Jen's manager I need to inform you that you (or Robby) would need to submit a written request asking for permission to use these pictures. You must swear, under oath, that these pictures will only be used for the sole purpose of prayer. If, for any reason, you do something else with these pictures besides "pray," we will take your ass to court and go after everything you own. With that said, we expect your request shortly and hope that you won't mess up Blake too badly.

Robby and Lynsey said...

Thanks for that. You can guarantee I'm going to be taking the pictures and running. You caught me ... the prayer thing was a big hoax. You know I don't pray. I'll probably go straight to hell. You can visit me there shortly if you wish. I'm pretty sure you're going there, too. ;)

I had forgotten how cute those pictures turned out! You did such a great job!! And I suppose Cheryl and Eric deserve some credit for having such cute kids! : )

So sorry you got sick after we left. Glad you're feeling better!!
