The Cast

We spent 3 hours in the emergency room on Saturday after Nora had a little accident. She landed on her arm awkwardly and her little wrist was swollen and she was in a lot of pain. They took x-rays and ended up putting her arm in a splint. Nora loved it. She raked in stickers from every attendant at the er and afterwards we went to get a birdhouse (her idea) to paint and some ice cream. We have since found out she had a dislocated elbow and has had her cast removed. Now she puts a sock over her hand - her new cast.

This is love. Love for a blue stuffed monkey we named Pippo.
Pippo is an incredible dancer.

In other Valentine/Heart news...
This hat was made by my good friend and knitter extraordinaire Katy.
Inside or outside it just makes a good hat. Thanks Katy!

Happy Holidays!

Welcome winter!
We got about two and a half feet of snow this past weekend and decided to take full advantage of it before the next storm rolls in. Kris did some skiing down Mt Philo and Nora and I watched from the snow banks we were playing in.
Here I am hiking up the mountain with precious cargo on my back:

An apres ski shot:

And just an extra PS picture for everyone. It's from Thanksgiving and I feel like it highlights the "big girl" she's becoming. She really isn't a baby anymore. In fact, she has become VERY aware of babies and whenever we encounter one she urgently lets me know with a loud"MAMA! MAMA!" followed by the sign for baby.

It's Been Awhile!

It was a very busy summer with a FIRST birthday party, trips to the farm, butterfly and eric carle museum, and carousel and pony rides. We are already well into autumn and have enjoyed apple picking, and visits from friends and family. I'll try to be better about posting on this blog but it seems like the more she moves the less I can get done!

We Moved!

We moved to a new house (see picture below) in the country about 3 weeks ago. It has been a lot of fun going on little hikes (starting at our front door), playing in the grass in the meadow and falling asleep to the frogs outside our bedroom window.

PS. Someone got a new dog. We think it's name is "Good" as in "good dog".

There's only one place to be...

There's only one place to be when the temperatures are this high... the beach! We took our first trip to the lake for some swimming on Sunday. It was so much fun! The water was pretty shallow at the beach we went to so the water was warm enough to take a dip in. Nora seemed to enjoy herself with two rocks she found on the beach. Afterwards we went to our friends Bryan and Julie's for a little cookout.
