So the sun finally comes out and my kiddos decide to get sick :( .... so sad! It started last Thursday with Ruby acting a little out of character. See she is quite the chatter box as of late, and my dad decide to walk her home from our towns "Thursday Market" and the whole way home she didn't say a word. That night she told me she was tired and going to bed at like 8:30, she usually will try to stay up till at least 10:30 (I know bad). Then when I got up to check on Finn, Ruby was blazing hot, I took her temp and it was 104.1! Finn has been our more sickly child not Ruby. Ruby has had 1 other fever and a few running noses here and there, but nothing too extreme. Anyhow all Friday, Saturday and Sunday Ruby pretty much slept and watched movies. Her fever never really went down even with medication. Then Monday came and Finn woke up at 4 am!!! with a fever and nasty cough. I decided to go see the doctor and Casey's hunch was right the kids have croup :( Ruby is on the mends and Finn is doing better today so hopefully tomorrow will be even better! Sick kids are so sad!!


It's been awhile so I will give a quick update on everyone...

- Crazy busy at work with the NEW IPhone (53 hr work weeks)
- Crazy busy with school, and his practicum for school
- Doing lots of small house projects that we all are enjoying :)

-Started swim lessons, not as much of a fan of swimming as she was last summer
-Loves her new swing set
-Won't sit still for more than 10 minutes (unless she's sick)

-Growing SO fast (20.6lbs)
-Sits up, and gets from sitting to laying down just fine, but refuses to crawl. He'll just lay on his tummy and cry and kick his legs until someone helps him (usually Ruby)
- Loves to eat, his favorites are strawberries, bananas, spinach, and carrots. He does not like peas (I don't blame him I don't either)

- Staying busy with kids, dance, and running
- In week 4 of the 16 week training plan for a full marathon (no plans to race a full, a half sounds way better)

what is going on...

this is the 3rd time I've blogged in 24 hrs...CRaaazzzzYYY! Ok so you all know Casey is in grad school, yes?! And he is doing awesome I might add, 4.0!! Way to go babe....anyways, his student teaching portion of his program is fast approaching and in attempt to cut out any unnecessary expenses (sense we will be a zero income family), and to simplify our lives so we can focus on the important things we have....

1. Sold our flat screen tv (yes this was all Casey's idea, cool huh)
2. Sold our pilot...got and outback, and now....
3. Bought a 1992 wagon....and going to sell our outback to get rid of all payments

Crazy....so much change but it feels good to have no car payments, well as soon as the outback sells!!!!

Finn cut 2 bottom teeth a couple days ago and I think he's workin' on 2 more, poor guy is super cranky :( I'll get a picture of them as soon as they are a little bigger and he's a little happier about them :)


You are my hero! My wonderful parents and lovely husband purchased this exact stroller for me as an early birthday gift to help me with my "training"...haha. My goal is to do a half marathon this year. It was getting really difficult to get my long runs in with Casey's crazy schedule... sooooo the BOB was the best solution. Although I'm having to build my endurance up to run with a stroller (so much harder than it looks) it is really nice and convenient. I still enjoy running on my own every now and then, it's a good mental break for me. I totally zone out while running I love it :)

Also me and my running buddy are talking about doing the Vegas half....Dec. 6th if anyone else is interested :)
