Wrapping Up the Year...

Yes, we are finally getting the real taste of having little boys...our Nick broke his arm. We still do not know how it happened, and I hate to say it, but when we finally took him to the doctor, the doctor said it already had scare tissue and looked as if he broke it a week prior! Nothing like hearing that as a parent, what a blow! The doctor made us feel slightly better saying that w/ young children, not discovering a broken bone is common, especially when we have a communication barrier w/ him being so young. So he had it only for 2 weeks and he never noticed it. Please note that it is the blue cast we are emphasizing in this picture, not his huge belly!

It just so happened some good friends of ours son, Jack, broke his arm a week before Nick, so we had to get the boys in their matching blue casts...same arm too!

While Nick had to take a break from daily wrestling matches w/ Ben during his recovery (which I believe is how he broke his arm in the first place), Ben took up puzzles. He completed this 100 piece puzzle all by himself w/in 15 minutes! He is loving the challenge of puzzles and wants a 500 piece puzzle now!

Then the beginning of December, Todd and I, along w/ some friends headed to Pasadena for the USC/UCLA game. It was a beautiful day and a fantastic time. We managed to sneak away for a 24 hour period and stay the night.

I'm glad you like the background!

We had a blast with you guys in Mexico!

And way to go on the wrap up--very good journaling!

After hanging out with Nick for a week in Mexico, I experienced his active all boy personality. He runs, falls, dances, plays, climbs, and crashes into things. It's easy to see how he could break his arm with that lifestyle and not even know it.

Give Nick a "high five!" for me.

Wow! Benjamin that puzzle is amazing. I hope that you have clued the kid in that there are other puzzle sizes between 100 and 500.

My tummy at this moment looks very much like Nicholas' gut. Too much See's, and delicious food and drink in Puerto Vallarta that refuses to go away. Not complaining, though, just observing!
