Oh Christmas Tree......

I used to have a christmas tree in my bedroom growing up, so last year I started the tradition with the girls. The other afternoon we took some time off from working and put the girls tree up and let them decorate it. Each morning the first thing they want us to do is plug in the lights and they want them on at night when they go to sleep. It's so sweet and such a warm feeling for me b/c I used to go to sleep with the lights on my tree on too! They got VERY excited to decorate their tree!

I tried getting a little of a close up of Abigail so you could see her face.... her cut is healing nicely! She's definitely going to have a mark for a while, but we are doing the Mederma to help minimize scaring!

Amelia excited to start decorating!

The elmo garland.
The hannah ornaments!

Sisterly love.
Their precious tree!!!

Thanksgiving Feast

The girls had a Thanksgiving feast at their school the Friday the week before Thanksgiving. We were invited to come so Brian and I both went. It was really cute! They even had turkey sandwiches as their main course!
The girls are at a new school this year and it's actually our second school of the year. We only made it for less than a month at the first one. We are ALL very happy with their new school and LOVE their teachers and the school in general. It was a pretty stressful thing for me to not be able to find the perfect school for them at first ! Now they are definitely at a perfect school!!!

ER visit and a VERY emotional day!

Today was defintiely one of the scariest days I have had!
This morning I was on my way out the door to take pictures I hear a loud crash. Brian had put his coffee cup in between the girls while they were sitting at the table for breakfast. They both went to grab it (which is VERY unusual they know they can't touch his cup!) and knocked it off of the table. Brian went to pull back Abigail's chair quickly before the coffee went all over it and Abigail dumped out of it forward straight on her face onto the broken coffee cup. Brian scooped her up and we knew imediately she had to go to the ER. I ran around Ithink for a few minutes like a chicken with my head cut off along with my mom. We then got in the car with Brian sitting in Amelia's car seat next to Abigail helping hold a towel on her face. I called my first three appointments crying telling them I was going to have to reschedule.
Once in the ER we had to hold a numbing solution on her face for 45 minutes and then they kicked me out of the room ( I couldn't handle it!) They had to wrap a sheet around her to pretty much straight jacket her and then had to clean it and then give her a shot to numb it the rest of the way. Then they gave her FOUR stitches! Yes my baby has four stitches in her cheek !! I can't believe one of my babies needed stitches before she was three!!! She was screaming pretty bad and telling the Dr. to "Stop it right now..I am leaving...I am finished!!!" Along with yelling for me which was heart wrenching!!
While we were waiting for the Dr. to come in and stitch her up I asked her if she wanted to go get ice cream. She told me no that she wanted Choclate Cake! We knew she would be OK then!! That was definitely an Abigail comment. We went straight to the store to get cake mix for her to make cupcakes with Nana and Amelia when she got home. Thank god Nana had come over to watch the girls today...Amelia stayed busy with her so she wouldn't be so concerned with Abigail being gone. (she was pretty upset with all the blood and drama as we were going out the door!)

Here are some pics of Abigail this evening.

Eating her choclate cupcake and showing us where her bo-bo is!

YUMMMY! Choclate Cake!

In pretty good spirits!

Here's my poor babies stitches. We get them taken out in 5 days...I am SURE that is going to be tramatic after everything she went through today!!!!

Amelia wanted me to take a pic of her too!

This was soon after they got into an argument at dinner tonight over who broke Daddy's cup!

I think Daddy is getting a coffee cup for Christmas!
