Catching Up

Time flies! November was a busy month for us, but fun. The kids had a lot of time off of school and we took advantage of the still beautiful weather. This first picture is of Lily with a big goose egg and two black eyes. Poor thing. I got a call from the school telling me I should come get Lily, she had an accident on the playground. When I got to the school she was sitting in the nurses room and started crying when she saw me. It was so sad. She had a HUGE goose egg on her forehead. She was playing on the bars during recess and swung around and wacked her head on another bar. 3 days later she woke up with black eyes which apparently is common with severe goose eggs. It has been over 2 weeks now and the black eyes are just starting to go away. Hence, I have not even gotten Christmas card pictures done yet!
Lily's Goose Egg
Thanksgiving was so fun. We went to the Bay Area and spent a few days with Matt's sister's family and his parents. We went to the Monterey Aquarium, had a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner, went on a fun train ride through the Berkley hills, and then went to Warriors vs. Lakers game. Now it's back to reality. But not for long, we have tons of company coming, Christmas parties to attend, and of course Christmas.Monterey Aquarium 2009

Oh poor Lily! That looks like it really hurt! Sydney fell out of bed one year and hit her eye and she had a black eye that took almost a year to go away!!! So for Christmas and school pictures it was still there. I'm glad you are doing well. We almost went up to the Monterey/Bay area in October but we ended up not being able to, maybe another time. Could you email me your new address? ckb33@cox.net Thanks!!

Sorry for contacting you through your comments section but I couldn't find an email address on your blog. We found your blog and thought you would enjoy our new website www.MommyGiggles.com.

Mommy Giggles is a site where moms submit funny pictures to share with other moms to get a giggle out of. They can either be pictures of their kids or of other hilarious “mommy moments”

We are contacting you to see if you have a funny picture that we could post – we would of course give you the credit, and also post your blog (if you want). There is also a $25 Amazon Gift card drawing to everyone who submits a photo each month.

We also would appreciate if you could spread the word about our site to other moms too!

We hope you will get a “giggle” out of our site.

Warmest Regards,

Heather Matthews & Heidi Werry
