The Lees had everyone over for a cookout at their house! Virginia and the kids had been gone for 10 days (it seemed like 4 weeks) they are back and Virginia's Mom came up for a visit - So we went to hang out with her cause she lives in Florida and we hear such GREAT things about her! She was cute and sweet and I now see where Virginia gets her charm!!!

We also got to celebrate with Michael (Buffie's Hubby) He leaves on MONDAY for a four month trip to IRAQ! Pray for a safe trip and a QUICK return!

AS ALWAYS it was a BLAST!!!!!
Thanks Virginia, Jonathan and the twins!

Our FIRST (and please God only) trip to the ER!!!

And I am not talking about the show! My phone rings last night at around 10:15PM - It's my mom (of course Annie was spending the night) and I hear Annie crying...Mom said Annie had tripped over her tricycle much like everyday but this time she was complaining about her foot and crying...So Mom went to take a look and said Annie couldn't stand on it and was SHAKING so I say "Meet me at the ER"

Upon getting there I asked Annie if she needed to see the DR - she said "Yes I need to see the docker" ( I think she thought she was going to see Dr. Chris - she LOVES him!)

I told the nurse she may have broken her little foot - I didn't think so BUT she couldnt stand on it so let's check it- as we were checking in at 10:44PM someone walked by and said " We waited SEVEN hours and nothing was wrong!) OHMYGRAVY- I couldn't have made it that long!

So we wait in the waiting room for appx 20 minutes..there were only 2 others waiting.
They took us back - the doctor came - felt her foot said NO broken bones but Xray just in case..
There were some stickers from the nurses to keep us entertained and of course Annie...
She wanted to get in the bed and wait cause "I so tired, tired, tired"
at one point I asked can you walk and she said "Yes I can walk" got out of her stroller and realized her foot hurt so she said "Mommy - I no can walk"
Then it was off to Xrays - that was a little painful as they moved her hurt poot around!
But she was a good sport - she was sooo good they gave her a coloring book and a Dora sticker!

I aksed Annie "what happened?" She said " I pell on my bicycle and then my Grannie held me"
She had what I thought was two black eyes so I said "Does your face hurt?"
Annie " No my pace doesn't hurt just my poot"
I asked " Can you walk?" Annie said " No I can't walk - I need my stroller!"
I mean she even makes the ER funny - since nothing was wrong...she wanted to tell me what happened A FEW times so she kept saying "Mommy can you hear me?"
She still can't walk on it - we will wait until tomorry and see what Dr. Chris says!
