What is it these days with my kids and injuries to their left eye???
Yes, it is true that Ella likes to do things that her big brother does. But her got her beat on this on, as her's did not require a trip to the ER.... thankfully

I know you were wondering how Ella gets her hair to be...

Since Ben has been sick since Tuesday, both kids have been cooped up in the house and were starting to get a little stir-crazy.
I have the day off today, so I thought I would take them on a few quick errands, just to get out of the house for a bit. Our first stop was to the hardware store to look at paint colors for Ben's room and then we were headed to the grocery to get more grapes and juice.
Unfortunately, we never made it past the paint samples.
Ben slipped and fell, landing with his eye into the metal shopping cart.
We headed straight to the ER (and made a call to Daddy)
Both kids were AMAZING! So well behaved! I was so proud of both of them.
Thankfully, they had Noggin so the kids were engrossed in cartoons most of our stay.
(sorry for the poor quality of the pics - they were taken with my phone!)
Ben ended up not needing stitches, but they did have to super-glue his head back together.
Here is the before....
And the after...
Ella was a supportive little sister, although she did wonder when it was time for lunch
We are now settled safely back at home. Both kids are napping. I just ate a massive amount of junk food and now am going to hop on the treadmill to run off the stress from the mornings' activities.
Here's hoping for a better tomorrow!

Part 3 - Christmas afternoon in Canton with Gigi, Papa, Uncle Josh, Aunt Erin and cousins
My sister got all the kids capes with their names on them. They were adorable!
Max and Ella were very hungry, so here they are with their pre-dinner snack. (we got Max this shirt for Christmas, and it has quickly become his favorite!)

- Blog (about Christmas, the kids' favorite TOYS, the get-together at my parents house with the friends I grew up with, New Year's with the Smith's, and so on...)
- Work on Ben's birthday invitation
- Clean the bathrooms
Instead, when I put Ben to bed, he cried and asked that I cuddle him. So I crawled into his toddler bed with him and we both fell asleep
Guess the night wasn't so bad
I'll post more in the next couple of days

Over the weekend, while Ben was taking a nap, Ella helped Matt work in the basement. Matt said she LOVED having time alone with him. After working for awhile, they came upstairs to show me what they had been up to.
