do you know how old i am?

80, apparently.
I feel like I'm falling apart! First my Mastitis, second my gall stones, and now I have Shingles! What the heck? Last weekend (Garrett's birthday to be exact) my right thigh started to feel really sore/bruised/achy. Then the next day I noticed a little cluster of raised red bumps. I was convinced I had a blood clot and I was going to die, so I went to the doctor. Good news: no blood clot, I got to live. Bad news: I have shingles. Seriously? I have 2!!! babies at home that have never had the chickenpox. If I touch the bumps on my leg at all and then touch them, they can get the chickenpox. Luckily, I seem to have a very mild version of it... and I'm taking an antiviral medication to make it go away faster. My hands are SO dry from washing my hands every 5 seconds. I am just terrified of Hudson getting them; he's too tiny!

And to top it all off, I gave both of them my cold. Poor buddies!

We have been having tons of fun though. We went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium last weekend, went to Yanagi's with friends for Garrett's birthday, and then McPhee's in Avila (overlooking where we got married :) ) for his family birthday dinner. And this weekend we went to Avila Barn with the family.
I LOVE fall! I can't wait for the cool weather, bundled little babies, Halloween, and Parker and my birthdays :)
I have already planned Parker's 2nd birthday party (when did he get so old?). I think I'm more excited for it than my own!

Here are some pictures of my little loves... that's what really matters, right?
