Race for the Cure and more sickness

My sister Autumn planned on running the 5k for Race for the Cure and Joe wanted to as well. He found out that our friends Nathan and Jill would also being doing it so I signed up to walk with Jill and so did my SIL Lisa. It was hard getting up early Saturday morning but it was a beautiful day and ended up being a little warm while we walked (I even got sunburned!) Us girls had a good time walking and talking the whole way which made it go by quickly. Autumn's friend Matt met us up there and they both ran and Autumn was excited she didn't' stop and beat her record. Joe actually ran into a few of the students who had interviewed him the previous day so that was nice to have that extra contact. I just couldn't believe how many people there were! it was SOOO unbelievably crowded! Me, Lisa and Jill called our selves the walking weavers b/c we were constantly just weaving our way through people and we were practically the last ones to start the race b/c we were waiting on the 2 Saxon girls to go to the bathroom! In all it was a good morning and a nice way to get some exercise for a great cause!

Today Kalli is sick again! She woke up very cranky and was running a fever again. Later on she started coughing and ended up choking on her mucus and threw up two times. After her medicine started to kick in she seemed to be feeling better and I gave her a little juice. Right before Kaiden and I were about to leave for church she was laying on her back and projectile vomited about a foot in the air and it all came back and landed on her. It was nothing but juice but still gross. Joe was such a good sport and let me and kid leave while he took control and cleaned everything up and gave Kal a bath (in which she ended up pooping in!) Did I get lucky going to church or what?! After Kalli's nap her fever was getting pretty high and she was so whiny. We gave her more tylenol and finally gave her another bath just to cool her off. Kaiden then woke up and had a slight fever. About that time we called my dad over to help give a Priesthood blessing to both kids. After that they really seemed to feel much better. How grateful I am for the Priesthood and a worthy husband who can administer those blessing to our family anytime we need (and my dad too!) Since Kalli has been sick for almost a week now I'll still make her an appointment for tomorrow and hopefully we can get over this bug! And hopefully me or Joe won't get it b/c I'm in a wedding this weekend and I don't have time to get sick!

Husbands are very sexy when they are cleaning up kid puke! Hope the little ones get to feeling better!

I hate this time of year because of all the sickness too! And it doesn't help that Arizona is like Louisiana. 82 degrees one day and 65 the next!

We have been fighting colds and coughs all winter, as soon as one is better, someone else gets it and then gives it back to you! Part of being a family I guess!

Thanks for the comment on my cakes. You shouldn't say that about yourself, I'm a little over the top with the girls cakes only because I do cakes as a side business. Kids don't really care!

I can't believe your Race for the Cure was so early! Ours isn't until May-but it is freezing cold Utah! I'm so proud of Joe, running and all!
