Poor Abby. Last night, she was playing in Alex's room with him and a friend when next thing we knew she was screaming. Turns out she whacked her forehead and eye on the wooden part of his loft bed (no fault of anyone---just an accident). She has a lovely mark on her face which Katie has diligently been covering with make-up. She looks pitiful but has fully recovered.
The kids and I hit the mall today to use gift cards. Dave is in CA for the day (yes, just the day even though we live in GA). Anyhow, while there, we took the girls to Build-A-Bear Workshop to let them make new friends. They haven't been before so they were a bit unsure of what to expect. However, once they saw the bear and dog taking shape, they were excited. :-) The big kids are now on the guitar learning new songs (the real guitar--not the video game!) while the little ones sit here coloring in the kitchen. Got to get busy cleaning and taking down the tree. Grandma and Grandpa arrive in the morning!
Here are a few pictures from today-
Abby after her run in with Alex's loft bed. Ouch!
