One Big Ouch!

I know there is nothing worse than to see your child in pain and know there is nothing you can do about it! Last Monday, Nov 16th- Cale fell off the back porch steps at his babysitter's house and broke his femur bone in his left leg. At first, I thought he had sprained his ankle, but little did I know it was much worse!

We took him up to Lakeview Hospital in the Emergency room- and they X-rayed him and found that he had definately broke his leg. They then transported us down to Primary Childrens to have an orthopedic surgeon look at it.

Turns out he has a spiral fracture in his femur bone- he had to have surgery to set the cast. We spent 2 whole days and 1 night at Primary Childrens because after the surgery that night, he broke out into a fever of 103.5! None of the doctors or nurses knew why- it was so scary! I have never felt such a hot baby! Scared me to death!!

Cale is now in a body cast from his armpits to his ankle- and to the knee on the other side. He has been such a little trooper through this whole thing! The doctor is confident it will heal quickly and he won't have any lasting effects from it- I am so thankful everything is okay. I am so glad he is such a good little boy and will heal well!

It breaks my heart to see him in his cast, but I am thankful for modern medicine and for the great staff at the hospital to help him out! I count my blessings every day that I am this little boy's mom- what an Angel I have been blessed with! We love this little guy so much and can't wait for him to be back running around and getting into everything! (Well kind of! :)!!

Fall Fun Times

Raking leaves at Grandma Linda's! Who knew it could be so much fun??

Carving Pumpkins! What a good sport our Daddy is!

The 3 little lions at our ward party! Kaleb, Kyle and Cale- too bad they were only interested in playing with the basket ball! They all looked so cute!

Playing with his "Pumpum"- that's how he says pumpkin! He loved pointing them out everywhere we went!

So proud of his "pumpum!"

Busted! Sneaking treats at Grandma's house! Too bad he get's his sweet-tooth from his mom!

We love Fall! We had so much fun at our house with Cale getting a little bigger- it is so fun to do things and help him discover our world! He is such a little sweetheart and we are having a ball raising such a little angel!

Happy Halloweenie!!

All dressed up for the ward Trunk-or-Treat! We were the Wizard of Oz, but we left our Toto home!
Each year on Halloween, Mike's company does a Big haunted house in their office- this year we met up with Brad, Chanda and Dylan and took the boys around- so fun!

Four cute boys!

We dressed up for a neighbor's Halloween party- all 3 of us were scarecrows! Mike was a good sport! Cale just looked darling!

Ready to go trick or treating with the Hancey Cousins! We love you guys!!

We had such a fun Halloween this year! I swear, holidays are way more fun with little kids! It was fun to dress Cale up in our cute little lion costume! Grandma Linda made it for Carson when he was Cale's age, and since then- it has become tradition to have all the grandkids wear it! He looked so dang cute!! It was such a fun day!
