Things & Such

This past weekend we had glorious weather! GLORIOUS! We were outside all day on Saturday! ALL DAY! This swing you see my daughter on, is a favorite swing . . . the children (well, not the little one) love this swing. The higher the better. My husband saved some of the leaves and made a wonderfully huge leaf pile for the children to frolic in. (also for this momma to get one good photo for Christmas cards-out of 47 photos-not one is card worthy) I had the brilliant idea to show my children how to swing and drop off this swing into the pile of leaves. Oh the joy! Oh, the giggles! Oh, the pushing I had to do! (my back has been aching for at least two days now)

This and That

On one particular push, I leaned in and down and my daughter leaned back and down. My face met her head. Ow ow ow ow owie!!!!!

My First Black Eye

This is the first black eye I have ever had! Isn't that unbelievable?

Anyway, my daughter was so upset she didn't even want to talk about it. She just felt horrible, even as I was laughing about it and telling her it was fine. (she would be quite horrified to find out I am now telling, like, hundreds of people) I told her how about we tell everyone Daddy socked me in the eye. Her eyes lit up and she states, "Oh, yes, momma, say that".

Needless to say, I am not saying that because I don't want to have to bail my husband out of jail.
