Don't Faint!!!

Another post and it hasn't even been weeks or months since the last one!!

Just a few photos of our most recent trip to the Wildlife World Zoo, only 10-15 minutes from our house! The kids had a blast and so did I. The camera died before we were done with the day so I wasn't able to get photos of our first Sky Ride adventure. We also did the Carousel but I didn't have any free hands even if the camera was working.

Scrapes, Bumps and Bruises

Just a few shots of my accident prone kids ... a trait they inherited from me. Why just the other day I had a radio antenna slip into my eye. True story. Still can't wear my contacts just yet. But I digress.

MTN at the emergency room less than 24 hours after we arrived in NY. A double ear infection = horrible balance. He fell, hit his head with the toy he was holding and that was that. He had a fantastic picnic while we were there and that kept him fairly well behaved! He munched away on his cookies while they glued his cut. DermaBond is amazing!

EMN jumped off a moving sled onto very icy snow. The end result wasn't too bad but the initial look at her was bloody ... cut lip and a scrape. She's a trooper and still loved getting in the sled.

And finally, back to MTN. His finger lost a signicant portion of skin due to an unfortunate pinching accident. Couldn't keep a bandage on it but it seems to be healing just fine regardless.

Next post will be happier, healthier stuff!

Happy New Year!!

Got back Friday night after 2 weeks in NY. We all had a great time!! It was a very busy 2 weeks so I've got lots of photos and good stuff to put in my blog. For now just a quick update with EMN/MTN's Santa present.

A new kitchen! Daddy assembled it during the 8 or so hours he had in Phoenix between his trip from NY and his trip to parts unknown. Thanks Daddy!! The kids have had the best time playing with it and we'll be stocking it shortly. We have pots, pans and all sorts of related stuff but we've been busy with laundry, cleaning and unpacking. Today I think we'll get it all straightened out.
