First Stitches

Had a little trip to the emergency room last night. Charlotte fell backwards in a chair and split her chin open. Poor girl! She didn't like being held down so they could do the stitches at all. She kept saying "help me mom" or "I wanna go home" or "I hold you mom?". It was so sad, and hard not to snatch her up. Then she started saying "ayudame, ayudame!" The nurse asked me what she was saying and I said I think that's help me in Spanish. The nurse was very impressed and started talking to her in Spanish and then the doctor started talking to her in Spanish. I guess she thought we didn't understand her in English and thought changing languages might get her some help. Or she wanted Diego to show up and rescue her!

Look At This BREAD!

I'm so excited! This was my first ever attempt at homemade bread and it was actually edible!!!! YEAH! I bought a few packages of yeast a while ago, cause it was on sale, and yesterday I thought I'd try to make some bread. I just followed the instructions on the back of the yeast package and voila! When it came out of the oven it was SUPER hard and I thought "OH NO", but I put some butter on the top and little bit later it was soft and very yummy. I only had to use one lifeline, a call to Aunt Linda to see what to cover it with while it was raising. Wasn't sure if I should use a tea towel or saran wrap. Her answer: Tea Towel, and it worked!

My Little Helper

Katie and I finally made some pumpkin sugar cookies on Sunday. I know a day late for Halloween...but really early for Thanksgiving!

The finished product. We had to add sprinkles for Charlotte. She is the sprinkle queen!

Katie also helped me decorate our frozen pizza for lunch. Both the girls LOVE olives so we had to add some to our pepperoni pizza!
