Being productive...

Skylar has had a temparature the past couple of days and also has a rash that I thought was going away, but it's still there that's on his stomach all the way up to his neck. The doctor said he has a sore throat and that's where the high temperature came from, but thank goodness it's not Strep (sp). That would be horrible! He still eats a lot like his throat isn't hurting, so that's a good sign. The rash I'm not sure where it came from, maybe the heat? It has been super hot!! If you have any advice, I'm all for it. We have been giving him benadryl, so hopefully that will do the trick. Since I stayed out from work with him yesterday, I decided to try making the cupcakes for his birthday party next month. I know what you're thinking, cupcakes and his birthday is next month? ahha.. These are monkey cupcakes that I saw online and wanted to try and replicate them myself. I priced them at the local bakery and they priced them at 2 dollars each. HOLY MOLY!!! So, needless to say, I decided to try them myself. My theme is Monkeys by the way. I got the idea from my fellow blogger friend from College, Crystal. You should check out her blog (The Johnson Family). She has an adorable son named Owen and is expecting another baby boy very soon! Regarding the cupcakes, I think I did ok! Terry likes them. He's always a good guinea pig for my cooking or baking. He'll even eat the "special" cakes I make for Bachelor or Bachelorette parties, ahah! What a sport he is. :)

Cupcakes are ADORABLE! Are you sure Skyler doesn't have roseola? Both Coy and Job got it at about a year old. It is a virus. First you get a fever then a rash. Anyway I hope that he feels better soon.
