:: Fever ::

:: We've got a whole bunch of 'fevers' happening around our neck of the woods right now ::

:: The first being the Olympics...our city is hosting the 2010 Olympics and the fever couldn't be hotter around here ::

:: Just the other day we had the chance to see the torch pass through our town -- we got up bright and early donned our red and white and headed to meet up with the torch ::

:: We ran into two of our friends; Trisha {w/ Chase} + Amanda {w/
Makena} ::
:: Jacob sportin' the Olympic spirit, thanks to Aunty Lisa ::
:: Here are my boys and Uncle Jordie ::

:: Here is our little family, what a great memory! ::

:: And here comes the torch, there was so much excitement in the air, it was really neat to be a part of it! ::

:: After we saw the torch we headed {in true Canadian style} to Tim Hortons for a coffee & donut, both the boys got the Canadian Vanilla Dip ::

:: Daddy headed off to work and we went home. Later the torch was passing right through our neighbourhood, so I couldn't resist going to see it again, I mean who
gets to see a torch two times in one day! Aunty Lisa & the girls joined us as well as Grampie ::

:: This time we were up close and personal...she was literally 5 feet away from us! ::

:: The kids reveled in the hoopla of the parade ::
:: Wave your flags everyone! ::

:: Here she is lighting the next torch ::

:: Go Canada Go! ::

:: We headed to Starbucks after to enjoy a red velvet cupcake, in true red and white style ;) ::

:: The next 'fever' we're dealing with is Spring fever, we've been so blessed to have amazingly balmy weather here, which is great for us, not so much for the WINTER Olympics! ::

:: Just look at these blooms popping out of the ground ::

:: Here are my boys playing around in the sunshine ::

:: Brothers, they loved each other for a mere moment in time, enough for me to snap this shot at least ;) ::

:: And now we have the last 'fever' which is the fever of love, Valentines is just around the corner, and so the house is full of sugar cookies, pink and red decor {which is quite out of place}, but it's what you do for
Amore and I love it! ::
:: These are silhouettes of the boys I did up last year sometime, thought it would be the perfect time to pull them out. And the decal of the Eiffel tower is three years old, I bought it for the nursery when I was pregnant with Cole and thought he was going to be a girl...hence the reason it's never been used - Ha! ::

:: Hope you're enjoying the 'fever' of it all too, I am delighting in this season - now enough fluff, I'm off to accomplish last minute Valentines and baking! ::

:: XO, *S ::

What a great 'fever' post! Just read it via Google reader... your Olymic torch photos caught my eye, it looks like we were at the same place at the same time (on 200th by the Bypass)!

You are a very gifted photographer too btw, that one shot you got of your two boys together is priceless! Being a momma of two boys myself I know how tough those can be to come by. :)

ahhh...the Olympic torch!! Believe it our not the Jordan household was all up at 5:30am to get to the Anmore Village Hall by 6am to watch the torch relay...it was totally awesome and they exchanged flames right infront of us...we had an awesome spot!! Hope you guys had fun in Whistler. We'll catch up soon. Happy Valentines day. xo
