Houston, We have a problem!

The kids and I got to tag along on Matt's business trip to Houston this month, and we went to the Nasa Space Center. We had so much fun. The kids loved it.

Ethan found a Star Wars exhibit and he was in heaven.
We also went to the Children's Museum in Houston. It was so much fun.

Injuries in 3's

It started simply but sadly enough. We had some friends come by to visit for a bit, and Gavin took a toy to the face. Another little boy threw a nerf gun, and it hit him right in the face. We made a quick trip to the urgent care, and came away with 3 stiches. Sadly, one of the stiches had already come out first thing the next morning.
Next, it was Ethan's turn. Hardly a week later, Ethan, Gavin and Marissa were playing happily upstairs, when Ethan tripped, and landed headfirst on the corner of the window sill. Matt was in the shower, and I had just walked in the door with a babysitter for the night, when the screaming commenced. It took me a second to figure out who was hurt, because Gavin was screaming worse than Ethan was. But, as soon as I saw Ethan, I started screaming too. He looked like a horror movie. He was covered in blood. Once again Matt and I ran to the Urgent Care, and left the babysitter to clean up the blood on the carpet.

They decided not to do stiches, they used glue instead, which I was grateful for, because I didn't think either of us could handle any more trauma that day.
They say accidents come in 3, and we are hoping that we are finished now. We went to Aunt Julee's house for Shayden's baptism, and Gavin was playing outside, and managed to drop a large paving stone on his foot. He lost his toe nail about a week later. Ewww.

Girls Vampire Night Out!

A bunch of my girlfriends and I went to the Book release party for "Breaking Dawn" at midnight on August 2nd, 2008. In preparation for the evening we had my brother-in-law Blaine "Bite" us so wee could feel the part! We got a lot of compliments on the bite marks!
This is some of the girls: Becky Corry, Emily Robinson, Me, Sarah Reed, Wendy Rasmussen, and Julee Smith

This girl won the costume contest at Barnes and Noble, she is dressed like Alice at the Prom from "Twilight". She looked amazing.
We went to Cheesecake factory for a little dessert before our long wait in line!
At Barnes and Noble: Carie Ann, Wendy, Me, and Emily.

Yeah!! We finally got the book. Julee and I were so excited, we got home about 1am, and stayed up reading until 2, then read ALL the next day. The cousins played together all day and we read. I think they ate popcorn most of the day, because we refused to put the book down to cook!
