Sick Kiddos

This week the kids have been sick, sick, sick! Wednesday night we took Brayden to the doctor because he was just laying around, crying. I knew he had a high fever, but when the nurse took his temperature and said it was 104, I was shocked! The doctor wasn't sure if he had the flu or not...we just had to keep an eye on him and bring him in if he got worse, or if he still had his fever after 3 days. Luckily his fever finally broke on Thursday! Unfortunately, that is also the day that Sienna woke up sick. UGH!

The kids have been laying around and watching tv all week. Brayden refuses to watch anything but Backyardigans and Sienna will only watch Dora...needless to say, I've OD'ed on cartoons, which I didn't even like when I was a kid!!!

Sienna's 1st Playdate...WITHOUT Brayden!

While Brayden and Wyatt were at preschool on Tuesday, Catrina and I got the girls together for their first "girls only" playdate!!! Sienna and Avery played together in Avery's room for all of 15 minutes before they came out to find us...they just weren't sure what to do without their big brothers around to entertain them!!! Even though the girls hung out with us for the majority of the morning, it was still one of the most relaxing playdates I have ever had and I can't wait to do it again!

Christmas Cookies!

Where does the time go? For some reason, our blog, which was once at the top of my priority list, is now at the bottom. Maybe I'll get back on track now that the holidays are over. Here are a few pictures of the kids making cookies before Christmas. I bought them their own little rolling pins, thinking they'd have lots of fun rolling out their own dough. Unfortunately the cut-out cookie dough was too hard for them... So, I rolled the dough out on my amazing roulpat (if you don't have one, you NEED one) and then let the kids use their rolling pins on the dough.

This year, they were both old enough to use the cookie cutters by themselves!

Since I only have one roulpat, the kids had to take turns. Brayden was super excited when he finally got his turn!

We didn't have time to frost all of the cookies, so each time the kids were given a cookie, they also got a dab of frosting (& sprinkles) to decorate their cookie with. It actually worked out great because it spread out the cookie decorating fun and gave them more incentive to eat a good dinner!
