super bowl fun!! the four of us took a break and made little piggies of ourselves and ate pizza, chips and dips of all sorts. it was fun! ty entertained us while trying to smash a two-liter on his head. he cracks me up.
many of you know that i am in the middle of becoming board certified in behavioral analysis. there are a lot of hours to put in studying and taking classes. with eric gone in north carolina for a few months, things just tend to get behind. well one particular night this feburary, this kiddos must have sensed my stress levels (or was sick of seeing dishes in the sink) and this is what i caught them doing:
they poured themselves a pre-dishes drink (evident in the previous photos) of sprite, then demonstrated how they drank it. best kids ever.
every nine weeks the kids' elementary school does a beautiful job of recognizing the accomplishments of the kids. i finally remembered my camera and was able to snap a few of kambel at her ceremony. she is so proud of herself - as she should be!
i am not quite sure what the barbie family was doing in the tent at their new campsite. it appears they were exhausted from the trip from the north pole. i quickly peeked in and quietly closed the tent and let them be.
in mid december eric and i were able to attend his winter formal with fifth group. the formal was at gaylord opryland hotel in nashville. we were able to stay the night and just enjoy ourselves! the kiddos were with grandpa for the night. hardly any photos, but we captured a few among the craziness of traffic and millions of people.
well. in late fall i decided to go outside and trim up a few bushes before the winter set in here. i am the official hedge trimmer in the house, i love doing it, love the tool, but this day it didn't love me. my fingers got a little too close to the electric blades and snipped the tip of two fingers. once it happened, i kept going, thinking it was just the cold weather as to why my fingers were throbbing. after a few minutes i ran up to eric to have him take a look (my hand was in a fist the entire time), he took one look and loaded me up. there was no bleeding until we got to the ER, when i took the pressure off. ended up with a fracture and five stitches. photos are from my phone, so sorry for the quality...not that you would want to see it closer.
