So Halloween turned out to be alot of fun this year the boys were so cute and loved going trick or treating! I struggled on what they were going to be this year because nothing was really jumping out at me I wasn't a fan of any of the costumes so I decided to just have them be plain old cowboys and I am so glad I did because I thought they ended up being 2 of the cutest cowboys I have ever seen!
Anyways we started out our day going into pat's work and went trick or treating around there and wow we could have just hit there and been done for the night the boys got so much candy I couldn't believe it they made out.
After that we headed over to Shane and April's house for some little activities and dinner and then we headed out with all the kids around my brothers neighborhood we had 5 kids 3 and under and they were so cute they all just thought they were so big and they have been doing this for years it was hilarious! Anyways here are some pics of our day and night!
Oh ya so when I ordered the cowboy costumes I didn't want them to wear the same one but I couldn't find another cute one so I one of them was called the yarn baby cowboy or something like that so it came with this hat that was kinda scary but the boys thought it was hilarious so I got them in their outfits a couple of nights before halloween just to make sure we had everything we needed well once they were all dressed they wanted to wear the raggedy ann/chucky hat LOL and this is how they looked:
Good thing I bought normal cowboy hats at the fair this year, cuz the ones the costumes came with were hideous!
K so of course us parents love halloween to so we had to get all dressed up like the little kids do and go out that weekend, mindy came up with the best costumes this year for all of us that she made and it was simple and cheap and I think they turned out so cute:

Things we have been up too!

I am such a slacker when it comes to blogging and taking pics my camera isn't working right now so I have to use my phone and its not the easiest to take pics with so I only take them here and there.
Anyways we haven't really been up to much just hanging out going to the park alot and playing inside the house alot because its so hot right now. They actually just built a splash pad right next to our house so I took the boys there the other day just to check it out we didn't get in it or anything we just wanted to see what it was all about and wow was it crowded but we are going to go back hopefully tomorrow or next week sometime so I will take some pics when we do.
K so we took the boys to CherryHill the water park part of it on saturday and they had a blast once again I didn't take many pics but they had this fun little kiddie pool there with a waterslide and caleb loved it Ayden liked it as long as daddy was going down it with him here are the 2 pics I got:
so then we decided to take them on the big dragon water slide so we got over to it and got in line and pat said ya there is no way I am taking ayden on that he will freak so they went down to the bottom to watch us come out so Caleb and I and Mindy and Sammie went up to go on it well those of you who know me I am so afraid of waterslides I hate them growing up whenever we would go to Raging Waters with all of our friends I would just watch them all go down the waterslides and I would hangout in the wave pool so I thought well I will be brave this time and take caleb it cant be that bad right. Oh wow it was hilarious so we got up to the top and it was our turn and I started to panick and saw how fast it was well anyways we had to sit on this matt thing and so I got all situated and I said to the girl is this really fast and she said ummm No its not really so I said you are so lying to me right now and she laughs and then I said am I going to drowned and she said with a laugh its only 2 ft of water at the end you will be fine just hold him up when you come out then I freaked even more she thought I was very weird hehehe anyways we start going down and I am freaking and then I lose control and fall over on to my back/side and couldn't get up and then we go through this big dark blackout tunnel and I was crying cuz I was scared and caleb was traumatized because I was freaking out anyways we finally get to the bottom and I was on my back and all I could think was hold him up so he doesn't go under and as soon as we got done Caleb says mommy I don't want to go on that ever again it was funny, so needless to say I will probably not be going on any waterslides anytime soon unless they are the little kiddie ones LOL!

K so the other day it was really windy and so hot and going to rain but the boys wanted to go and have a picnic at the park so I said how about we have a picnic here in the living room and read some books and then play candyland so they said okay and they thought that was fun, my boys love to play candyland that is all they want to do every night and Ayden always has to be Yellow and Caleb has to be Green and of course they told me I have to be Red and Pat has to be Blue so we play that game alot I need to go and get more games because I am so over Candyland hehehe. They play it so well I told them from the start that we could only play this game if they played it the right way and waited for there turns and played by the rules yes this game takes us forever to play because I wont let them cheat but you gotta teach them sometime to play the right way right, I am thinking of reconsidering that decision hehehe! Anyways here are a few pics of our picnic and playing candyland!

Utah Valley Provo Marathon!

So I ran my first Full Marathon a couple of weeks ago and it was such a awesome accomplishment. So I started my training back in Feb and from Feb 7th til June 11th I ran a total of 458 miles leading up to the marathon so over all 484.2 miles I ran in alittle over 4 months wow that is alot of running. Anyways during my training I said I will never run a full marathon again but once I finished I changed my mind and yes I will for sure run another full marathon just so I can beat my time LOL!
K so I ran my Marathon in 4hr and 9 minutes so my minute mile pace overall average was 9:32 minute miles so that wasn't too bad for my first marathon I was hoping to come in at 4hr exactly but I guess 9 minutes over isn't so bad. K well here are a few pics of the marathon. I ran it with one of my really good friends Martin and it was so nice to have him there with me we helped motivate each other so it was nice. Thanks mindy for taking some pics for me.Thanks to everyone who came out to support us that was awesome!Pat also ran the 5K that morning he did awesome way too go babe!

A Day Out With Thomas!

I guess the heber creeper does a day out with thomas once a year so we thought it might be fun to take the boys up there to spend the day out with thomas and they loved it so of course I forgot my Camera so this is the only pic I got with my phone, mindy took some pics with her camera but she hasn't emailed them too me yet so once I get them I will add them on.
We got up there and got checked in and we had to wait for 45 minutes before our train ride so we took the boys around to all the little things they had going on like thomas tattoes, so when it was there turn to get there tattoes they would not let that kid that was doing them come near them so grandpa had to put them on them it was pretty funny then we went over and let them run wild in the hay maze, after that it was time to catch the train the kids loved it we went up there with sammie and jaxon and grandma and grandpa it was a little 25 minute train ride but they all enjoyed it after that we went over to the gift shop and bought them a few little prizes and of course grandma had to buy all of the grandkids a shirt we were going to try ang get a pic of them all wearing there shirts but that didn't happen. My boys have been asking to wear there shirts ever since we went up there so I put them in them today and that is all they can talk about thomas the train here are a few pics:The boys love to play together so this is them being silly and eating there Otter Pops!
Then we took all the kids to the Aquarium on sunday but once again I didn't take my camera so I didn't get any pics of them there but they had fun except when all the kids were standing over by the shark window area and all the sudden this shark came out of no where and it was right up by the glass so right by Ayden's face and yep I bet you can only imagine what happend next oh he let out the biggest scream and started crying so hard it was hilarious I wish I would have had my camera hehehe!
So pat bought a bike trailer so he could start taking the boys on a bike ride while I am out running so here are a few pics of the boys with their new helmets and going for a bike ride they love it!so I haven't blogged in awhile so I am just kind of blogging about somethings we have been doing and some of the things the boys love to do, so they love going out on the deck and just running around and sitting out there to watch the airplanes fly by so here are a few pics of them hanging out on the deck:
and they love it when sissy mav comes to visit them:The boys are getting so big I just can't believe how fast they grow up they can count to 12, they sing their alphabets to me all the time and they can both spell their names its so cute and they are both just little talkers thats all they do is talk we can't get Ayden to hush up most of the time its funny both their personalities are so cute but so different.

Our 2 little helpers!

Oh my these 2 love the vacuum so anytime pat gets the vacuum out they are both right there by his side either turning the vacuum on and off or trying to help dad push the vacuum around its hilarious and so annoying at the same time, ecspecially because there are 2 of them so they are either fighting over who gets to push it or turn it off or whatever they can find something to fight over yep already fighting at 2 years old, now instead of just being able to vacuum and get the job done in a matter of time it now takes him all day to vacuum with these 2 little best helpers ever. It just cracks me up how much they love the vacuum they ask me everyday mommy can we get the vacuum out and vacuum they are so funny and so freaking cute this age is the best oh and the worst they never stop.Well the other day we actually had some nice sunny weather warm enough to get the jogger out and take the boys out for a run and stop and play at the park they were loving it, they just love being outside so I just wish the weather would stop teasing us one day its 70degrees and then the next day its snowing again....ugggh! Anyways so here are a few pics of them getting excited to go for a run, I forgot to take some pics of them at the park but believe me they had fun, I couldn't get them to leave:

7 Weeks of Sickies

This is how Ayden looked for about 6 weeks off and on he was miserable:
So we haven't really been up to much since the boys birthday except being sick so the boys ended up sick a few days before there birthday with a horrible cold around Feb 10th so we figured thats all it was so we just went on about our business and a week or so went by and Caleb started getting better but not ayden, then Ayden started having fever's and he had them for about 4 days and then he started saying his ears hurt so we took him into the dr and he had a fever of 102.6 and he had 2 horrible ear infections and a horrible sore throat but it wasn't strep, so they put him on an antibiotic that they said was a pretty strong one so it should do the trick so he was on that for the full 10 days and he was acting so much better and then all the sudden after the 10th day of the medicine he started coming down with fevers again he had them for about 3 days so we took him back and they tested him for strep again and the flu this time and nothing and his ears looked great so they couldn't figure out what was up with him and all his fever's that he kept having so we took him home and 2 days later his fever broke that was on a thursday, he was fine all through the weekend and then come monday of last week he started getting fever's again this time they were in the 103's so we watched him for 3 days and then he started saying his ears hurt again so we took him back and sure enough he had a horrible sore throat again this time full of Puss and horrible ear infections again and a fever of 103.6 and he was so out of it he would just lay there so they felt that they needed to put him on this 3 day shot called Rosefen(however you spell) OMG that was the worst thing I have ever had to experience with my kids oh it was awful that shot was the size of my Progesterone shots that I had to have for 10 weeks in my hip and that long oh it was so sad they had to put it in his leg and because he is so skinny they couldn't even get it all the way in cuz it would have come out the other side ya it was awful, Ayden screamed bloody murder and then he couldn't walk or move his leg for like 2 or 3 hours after and he had to go through that hell for 3 days, well he is now doing better but we went back in on tuesday for their 2 year check up finally ya I know it was like a month and a week late. Anyways they checked Ayden and needless to say he was traumatized from the moment we pulled into the parking lot he started screaming and didn't stop until we left it was horrible, anyways they checked him out and he still has lots of fluid in his ears and they are still pink but not red and it looks like the infection is going away but they are concerned that he might have to have tubes because that fluid could be doing damage to his hearing, so we have to go back in 3 weeks to see how things are going and then decide from there if he will have to get tubes or not.
It just sucks because he went 2 years with no problems never sick and then all the sudden he has been so sick 6 weeks out of the 7 and luckily Caleb has been fine he had a fever on sunday and was pulling at his ears but monday he was fine and the dr. checked him out and said his ears look great. Anyways other then that they are both doing good.so the one weekend Ayden was actually doing okay mav and Danielle took them to the Aquarium this is the only pic she gotThe Dr. said Caleb is very small but doing good he only weighs 22lbs 8OZ and he is only 34 inches and a quarter so he is only in the 30th percentile for height and in the 10th percentile for weight but he eats all the time so he just has a great metabolism.
Ayden is in the 60th percentile for height he is 35 inches and a quarter and he weights 23lbs 8OZ so he is exactly 1 inch taller then Caleb and 1 pound heavier then Caleb, Ayden was always the lighter one but now he is bigger then Caleb, which is so weird because if you looked at them you would think Caleb weighed more cuz Ayden is so skinny but I think he weighs alittle more just because he is a bit taller anyways they are both growing like they should and doing great.
So the one nice day we got the boys had to take their jet ski's outside and ride them up and down the driveway they love their jet ski's that their sissy mav gave them thats what they call her is sissy:
Sorry for the novel

2 Years Old!

Yes I am a slacker when it comes to blogging, so I apologize for the long post anyways the boys just turned 2 a couple of weeks ago, and it was pat's b-day also so he took the day off so we could spend the day with the boys and just hang out so we took the boys to get their haircuts and then we took them bowling:The boys totally bowled the same score, yep they are definitley twins and then to lunch and then we went back home to get ready for their little birthday party, we just had a few ppl over for some Cake and Ice Cream nothing big this year.
So we did a Barney theme this year because they absolutley love Barney we watch it 24/7 along with Toy Story and Cars so that is what we are watching at our house everyday all day long good times LOL!
so here are some pics of the boys birthday:So for the boys birthday we got them my first trampoline and they absolutely love it, so the reason I am posting so many pics of them jumping on the trampoline is because everytime they get in it Caleb yells mommy get camera to take a picture so here are all the pics that I had to take of them jumping because Caleb wouldn't stop asking until I took lots of pics he is so funny he loves having his pic taken now, but only on his termsAnyways the boys got alot of nice stuff from everyone lots of clothes and more toys so thanks everyone for all the stuff they got, after we did gifts we sang to the boys and then had some cake and Ice cream, me being the slacker planner mom I totally forgot to order the boys a cake that had Barney and friends on it til it was too late so I just had to make a couple of cakes and they turned out pretty okay for those of you who know me and my wonderful cooking skills LOL, they were actually editable hahaha.Both the boys were not feeling too well on their b-day so they didn't really have any cake or ice cream they just sat in their chairs and looked sad and sick:and thanks mindy and josh for dishing up the cake and Ice Cream. Anyways they had a nice birthday and thanks again everyone for coming and I can't believe they are already 2 years old they are both so smart they already know all their letters and a word that goes with each letter so for example they say the letter E and then they say Elephant after it and so forth its really cute and they both can count to 10 and they know what number is what.
So I started running again to train for all my marathons I am running this year so instead of waiting until the boys went down for a nap I decided to try running while the boys were in the playroom/gym and it actually worked out great so now the boys will run upstairs and grab my running shoes everyday and bring them down to me and say mommy run and the reason they want me to run is because they get to run after mommy is done they know what they are doing:Ayden loves to sit down and read books he ecspecially loves the little red hen so when I can't find him I will walk in his room and he will be sitting in his rocking chair reading his book and this is what he is saying out loud Not I said the Duck, not I said the Goose and so forth its hilarious.Caleb loves to wear my shoes don't ask me why but he is always pulling my shoes out of the closet and trying to walk around in them its pretty funnyhe also knows his full name and Ayden's full name and my full name and dad's full name its so cute he will sit there and say mommy's name is Mickele Mills and my name is Caleb Patrick Mills its pretty dang cute.
Anyways they are both smart in their own little ways and I am so thankful to have them they are my world and yes there are days that are so hard with 2 of them being the same age but I wouldn't trade it for the world.
Every night before bed they run in there room and each pick out 2 books and say daddy read us a story: and one day I will get that binki away from ayden and his burp rag but I enjoy my sleep way too much to take it away yet LOL!
