Boys' Club

First off, I want to note that my new Canon mirrorless camera came in and I AM IN LOVE!  There's definitely a learning curve with it that I'm slowly getting the hang out (the buttons are in such different spots than my regular camera!!) but I reallllllly love it.  I'm waiting for my new lens to come in that's JUST for mirrorless camera (dang backorder!) but until then I can use my current lenses with an adapter.  I had my first official shoot with it last night and I love how the snaps turned out!

Anyways...last night after I got Annie to bed (Ro was at NeeNee's) I hear giggling coming from the bathroom so I go check it out -- turns out the boys were having a shaving party and it was the cutest thing EVER.  So!  Off I went to grab my camera...

I'm dying over these!  They are so cute and totally Patrick's most favorite part of his evenings.  He asks to shave every.single.night. and we usually are like "NO JUST TAKE A QUICK SHOWER!" but every once in a while we cave and let him shave with his little shaver and cream (cause duh, can't do it every night or it kills the fun!)...and last night Mike joined him! 

I just love their little boys' time they have.  They spent the earlier part of the evening at Patrick's school building gingerbread houses and it was so sweet to get the pics from them and see how excited Patrick was to tell all about their evening (and how he was the only one to bring colored icing!) at school.  Those moments make my heart happy.  And, I'd be lying if I said a bit sad too...because I know that Mike won't get these fun boys' club moments with his other little guy Clark.  And that does rip at my heartstrings.  I know Clark's watching over these fun boys-only happenings from above, but it does hurt knowing he won't get to experience them down here with them.

Gah, I've managed to take a happy post and turn it into a sad one.  Sorry.  But I miss that guy each and every day and it's just so consuming to think about him and all of the what ifs and what's not going to be.  I need to go turn on a happy show and do some photo work (helllloooo website updates!) and give myself a little distraction.  But I do love my boys so much and love all of the special memories they are making together...with the best little guardian angel watching over them from above.
