Little One Armed Girl

I'm not sure if we are bad parents, our children are just accident prone, or what, but Emily broke her arm on Saturday. She was on the trampoline with Max and must have landed on it wrong, since she didn't fall off the trampoline. Jeff and I were making dinner and weren't watching the moment it happened. She's got two tiny breaks, one above her elbow and one below. The plan is to just splint it, for the time being at least, until it gets better. She was so cute at the doctors yesturday showing the receptionists her hurt hand. (We thought it was her hand because that is were all the swelling was.) I can't believe what a trouper she is about being one armed. It's amazing how resilient these little kids are. She doesn't let it slow her down at all. So far it's a lot easier than dealing with a 45 lb. boy with a broken leg.

In case you didn't notice, Emily is sporting a new "boy" haircut. I decided to butch her hair Saturday night in the hopes that it will maybe come in a little thicker.

Ward Camp Out

This was our version of the ward camp out this year. We were planning on going until it started pouring rain as Jeff was heading home from work. I didn't want the kids to be to disappointed that we didn't end up going camping, so we roasted hot dogs and marshmallows in our fireplace for dinner. Max especially enjoyed roasting hot dogs in our living room and wanted to do it again for dinner tonight. Hopefully next year we will have some nicer weather for camping.

I guess it's more fun to make mischief when you are in disguise.
