Feels Like Forever

I know it hasn't been that long since I took pictures, but for me to go as long as I have without snapping shots of the kids, it feels like forever. The air quality has been terrible around here, so we haven't gone to do much, preferring to stay inside to breathe the marginally cleaner indoor air. 

Rophone is resting on the couch adjacent to mine, suffering from some suspiciously flu-like symptoms. Even as he alternates between fever and chattering teeth, I am refusing to admit that the flu virus may have crossed our home's threshold. (I am happy to pretend it's something else for the moment, but may have to change my tune should I become so afflicted.) ; )

The kids had the day off of school yesterday, so we spent the day lounging around inside. I snapped a few shots of the kids as the afternoon light was waning. I can't believe how much they have changed just since Christmas. 

Here's a pretty Pen:

It was difficult to get a shot of Ginger where she wasn't wiggling her newly loose teeth, but I managed a few:

Bud, as usual, wasn't a super willing subject:

Big, taking a self portrait:

It's easy to see in Big's face that he's getting sick. He looks wiped!

I can't wait for the air to improve enough to allow us some outside time. That's where I prefer to take pictures, and where I prefer to be to tell the truth. I'm sure I'll be back to my old photo-happy self when that occurs.

Oh no! I hope you guys don't get the flu flu. At least it's not during the holidays.
