Saturday night Gracey was running in my bedroom when she tripped and smashed her face into my bed. She must have hit the metal mattress frame. Her nose swelled up right after it happened. After a long debate of whether we should take her to the Dr. or not and calling my dad a million times to see what he thought, we decided to take her to the ER. The Dr. said what we thought which was "yep it's broken, but there isn't anything you can do until the swelling goes down". So now we wait. I still can't tell if it is crooked or not it's still is a little bit swollen. Gracey has been so tough through it all, she doesn't even act like it bothers her at all. But it makes me hurt every time I look at her.

Happy Birthday Peter

Peter had his first official birthday party last February. We did a pirate theme. I made the invitations to look like a pirate map. This may not have been a good idea because some of the kids didn't make it home with their invitations because they were to busy playing with them. I made these shark cupcakes that looked better far away then they did up close. They weren't too difficult, but they weren't as easy as I thought they would be. They were kind of tasty because, yes the sharks body is made of a twinkie. What could be better than a cupcake with a twinkie, a cookie, and candy?
