One more time!

We had yet another winter snowstorm this past Saturday! We didn't mind it so much this time though. We got about 6 inches that morning and it was the most perfect snowman snow I've ever seen so of course we had to get outside and make us one last snowman for the year. As you can see, Nick and I were only in sweatshirts and we were still pretty hot from being outside and playing so it was nice, plus just a few days later it was completely gone! Spring here we come!

Back from the dead

I wish that I could say that after three full weeks of being miserably sick that we're all doing great now...but I can't. Although we're all feeling leaps and bounds better than we have been Jack was sent home from daycare today yet again. I couldn't even tell you how many days Nick and I have taken off work in the last month and it's really killing us. Today they called Nick saying Jack had been throwing up and that he couldn't be there anymore, so Nick picks him up and he's acting completely normal but sure enough a few hours later he started throwing up again. It's weird because, like I said, he's completely normal except that he's throwing up. He's been playing all day and happy like nothing was wrong, so frustrating! But amidst all of this there have been some fun things going on that I haven't been able to get up on the blog until now.

First and foremost, Owen and Jack turned 3 last week! Happy Birthday! Thank you so much to all of you who sent cards and gifts for them, they were seriously so excited about everything! Wednesday's are busy days for us just because Nick and I both work all day so we were bummed that we couldn't do a whole lot for their birthday. We woke them up that morning singing happy birthday to them with a cupcake and candles to blow out- can't you see how thrilled they were!

Once they got to the eating part they perked up quite a bit.

Nick picked them up to take them out to lunch later that day and they decided they wanted to eat hamburgers in Dad's new car (which they love) and they wanted Dad to sit in the back and them to sit in the front. They're so funny when they give such specific instructions to us. After that I got off work for a bit and we took them to their favorite park that they affectionately refer to as "barf park". (Last summer Owen got violently ill while at that park and threw up more than Nick's ever seen, so he says)

They love to climb up this rock wall and they have a really tall "super slide" that the boys like. After that it was back to work and daycare, kind of a bummer but I think they still had some fun.

I'm SICK of this...

Our family has literally been sick for weeks. We are so miserable right now, probably me the most since I have three boys to take care of plus myself. We've been to the doctor but nothing has been helping and I don't know how much more I can take, not that I really have much of a choice though. It's amazing how much medicine the four of us has consumed in the past few weeks. Everyone at my work, Nick's work and daycare are sick, as well, so it seems there's no end in sight. To make it worse we've been so busy! My grandma died last week so we were busy preparing for and having the funeral, we had family in town, my work is having this huge Medicaid audit that we've been working on, we've been trying to buy a house, and we've both had to take time off of work to stay home with the boys. Way too much! One bit of exciting news sister's pregnant! Yay! We're so excited for them. I'm especially excited to finally be an aunt that's remembered! I adore my little nieces and nephew in Oregon but we don't get to see them nearly enough to have them really remember who I am! Jessi only lives about 20 minutes away from us right now so we get to be with them quite often. So there's our update, not too exciting for the most part; we just really hope we're all better by next week so we can celebrate Jack and Owen turning 3! Keep your fingers crossed for us!
