Custume Glory

We carved our pumpkins on Halloween Eve. The evening started off good. Each of the older boys had an idea of how they wanted their pumpkins to look. The grandparents came over to share in the fun. The pictures were drawn on the pumpkins and the carving began.

Next thing I know Bear grabs the knife over my hand and his index finger is bleeding away...... I held pressure on it for some time. Got band-aides and tried to put the flap of skin back down. Bear seemed fine~ so we finished the evening with decorating our pumpkins.

The next day we met Commander for lunch, we thought that we would check out the finger. OH NO..... The flap of skin is wide open and swollen. It is hours before the BIG event.

So off to the Children's Hospital Urgent Care we go. They cleaned it out- put a reinforced dressing on it and splint and away we went. Bear called it his personal gun(only a boy would think of that). I am so happy that he saw the glass half full.

Those Darth Vadar helmuts are HUGE on those little kids! They look SO cute. Sorry to hear about Bear's finger. Hope it wasnt too painful for him.

Ouch!! I can't stand the sight of blood I fall apart. Eek-gad, I have a boy whatever am I going to do?

I do, however, love those Star Wars boys. Bobble and all.

Well, you can't be a mom of boys without visiting the ER or Urgent care frequently...right? We've already been to the ER FOUR times and Caden isn't even 2 yet!

Your guys look sooo cute...especially the Michael Jackson/Darth Vader Bobble Head!!!

Love their costumes - Quite the mixed up Star Wars theme you have going on LOL!

Trips to the ER are never fun, but at least he saw the bright side of it.
