"Mom, There's Blood Gushing Everywhere!"

Adam came rushing downstairs this afternoon to inform me that Benny's lip had a huge hole in it and there was blood gushing everywhere. Apparently he was playing on his top bunk bed when James came crashing onto it, causing the board underneath to slam up into his lip. Luckily it wasn't quite as bad as Adam thought. I think what happened was that his teeth went down through his lip. There was quite a bit of blood, but mouth injuries are usually that way. He's okay now, but he'll have a fat lip for a couple of days. It will be pretty sore, too.

Blessing Suit

Thomas was blessed last Sunday. Grandma made his suit, which was adorable. He shared the day with his cousin Chandler, who was baptized that afternoon. There were two grandparents, three aunts and uncles, one great-uncle and -aunt, one great-great-aunt, and 15 cousins in attendance. (That doesn't include any more distant relatives that I might have failed to mention.) I didn't get a chance to snap any pictures at church, so I took these at home that night. They'll have to do.

Three Kinds of Muffins!

We have started holding a life skills class in homeschool on Fridays. Today we learned how to make muffins. David and Laura made applesauce muffins, Jessica and James made jelly muffins, and Benny, Adam, and Brigham made blueberry muffins. We had a yummy brunch of muffins and juice after they were done!
