We have had a rough week...Austin woke up last Sunday with a fever in the middle of the night. He continued to have a fever off and on for about 3 days. It was weird because as soon as the fever would go away, he acted fine. He would laugh, play, run around...Soon enough, the fever would return and he would be back on sick mode. No other symptoms though, no throwing up, so running nose, nothing...He felt better about about 3 days and I thought Kaden was in the clear because he seemed ok. Friday he woke up from his nap with a fever! ugghh...He had the fever off and on that night and the next morning he was in bed most of the day. He threw up twice and was pretty miserable. It was real similar to Austin though, because as soon as I was able to get the fever down, he acted totally normal. This went on through yesterday. So far today, everyone seems well and healthy. We have really had a hard season of being sick. The boys have barely been sick up until now. It is just so sad when you feel so helpless as a parent and want to do everything to can to make them feel better but you can't. It's a horrible feeling.

Mike and I somehow did manage to go out on New Years eve though. My Mom came over and watched the boys while we went out to dinner with my Dad and Stepmom. We went to Steamers and had a really good dinner. We were home by 10 and somehow managed to stay up till midnight. I should say, I made it to midnight...Mike was fast asleep on the couch next to me. I should have just gone to bed because the kids were up at 6:30 the next morning raring to go. New Years day Mike and I decided to cook a turkey dinner. We got a turkey right after Thankgiving for really cheap. We made a turkey dinner with all the regular side dishes...stuffing, mashed potatos, rolls, salad, and apple crisp for dessert. It was really good and my Mom and brother came over for dinner.

I have finally become super motivated to get into shape. I am really over feeling fat and I really want to do something about it. We were going to buy ourselves a treadmill for Christmas but decided against for several reasons. Mostly because it was such a large amount of money for us to spend all at once. We found an amazing deal on a B.O.B. double jogging stroller and I have been walking/running with the boys for exercise. So far it has been working out great. Mike has also been wanting a machine for doing pull ups, dips and abs. We found one at Big 5 and scored when it was marked incorrected and got it for only $99! Sweet! I feel like this year will be a year of achieving goals that I myself have wanted for a long time. I just really want to feel good about myself again! I'm gonna do it...I don't care what it takes. Now I leave you with some pictures of our little men!
I though this picture was hilarious! "What you talking about Willis?" face...

And an amazing video of Kaden wishing Austin a Happy New Year! He is talking about dogs too. Just in case you can't really understand what he is saying...enjoy the cuteness!
