Sisters, Cookies, And the E.R.

We baked cookies today.

And yes, we had more rainy snow.

You see, I am kind of at a temporary standstill with the
Yaya's Apron pattern since my photographer is out of town
and so is my husband. 

So I could not get the photos back from Heather before she left.

And Don, who is my computer genius, is gone until tomorrow night.

So, we baked cookies.

And ate dough. 

And did a lot of laughing.

Yes, some of that cookie dough did get baked.

And two sisters had fun.

And then, whenever sugar is consumed,
craziness ensues.

So, here we are at the Emergency Room.

Ahnalin decided to use a chair and the edge of the counter
like parallel bars.

Not wise.

Not sure if you can see it, but she has a huge knot on her forehead.

She fell and slammed her head into the wood floor so hard it creased,

her head, not the floor.

The ER doc, who knows us by name, said that
the lump would start to drain into her face.

So she will have black eyes later today.


Before, the cookie dough and the ER,
Ahnalin measured, cut, and sewed her own book bag.

She insisted that I take a picture and post it on the blog.

She told me she likes the "Press".

I think she is turning into a sewing diva.

Oh, and there will be more pics today of this little apron.

Really, the pattern is coming.

I promise!!!

I am going to take a nap now.

I had to check Ahnalin every hour all night long
because of her concussion.

She is fine.

I am convinced one of us will not survive her childhood!

Keep those beautiful stories coming
and do not forget to enter the Giveaway.

I am loving your beautiful tributes to those who have
invested time and love into your lives.

Love to you all.

I'm so glad Ahnalin is ok. It looks like ya'll had fun prior to the bump. Tell her she did a great job on her bag.

Needs the "press"?!?!?! YOU have your hands full with that one, between this "little diva" attitude and being on a first name basis with the ER doctors! Honey, you are going to need more than soup from the grocery store to keep up!!

Good Luck! This post made me laugh, well most of it. Hope she doesn't look too bad when the blood starts going south.

I love her sewing spirit. She is the real thing!! Sorry about the bump on the head. What a worry!

Jennifer said...

Sorry to hear she bumped her head. My 2 yo messed up his forehead yesterday, too. He has a knot (not as big as Anhalin's!) and lots of blood was shed. :(

Seeing all those wonderful pics of the girls making cookies and having laughs makes me miss my family so much. It is such a wonderful thing to see sisters this close! And you are not alone, we are convinced our youngest may not live to see Kindergarten, no fear whatsoever, lol.

Hah!! She is hilarious! :-)

Ahnalin, you did an awesome job!! The "press" loves it!

Ouch! (The only reason they don't know us by name at our local ER yet is because our pediatrician's office has an after-hours practice.)

Debby said...

That's a big bump. Don't be surprised if those black eyes last a long time. Glad you had so much fun with the cookies.

Bunny said...

Oh, my, the bumps and bangs of childhood. Hope it doesn't take too long to heal up. At least she has those darling bangs to cover things up a bit.
You sure did make me want to eat cookie dough! said...

OH MY GOODNESS!!! I'm glad you guys had so much FUN first! Tell Ahnalin that I think her bag is awesome, and hope she is feeling better! Love, Kathi
