Who knew that tents and blankets downstairs could make a couple of kids so happy!

I was enthralled with what I was doing (making sure my yeast was active), when Avery says to me, "I can't get this bead out." I look over at her and she has her finger in her nose. Yep that's right Avery stuck a bead up her nose. I didn't really know what to do. We haven't seen a pediatrician here yet. I just called a nearby office to see what I should do. They said to take her to the emergency room. Luckily it's about 2 minutes away. I packed everyone up and we went. It took a doctor all of about 10 seconds to get the bead out. I didn't try to get it out and it had only been in about an hour by the time it was removed. The doctor said it was good I didn't try myself, that's when there are problems. The best part about it was that Avery didn't seem to mind at all. Actually maybe that is bad. It probably didn't scare her enough to make sure she doesn't do it again. So all in all, the first trip to the emergency room with kids wasn't that memorable!

I want to draw attention to the bottom row of pictures. The first, drawn in blue is obviously an elephant, right? Then Ashby asked what the next picture is, Roger suggested dinosaur, I immediately shot him down, I was sure it was a paramecium. However we were both wrong. Ashby said it's a picture of ear world, where everything is made of ears. How great is that? I would put forth that the evilest of all villains on ear world is The Giant Q-Tip.
I can't write about Ashby's funny comment without including one from Avery. Like I've said before she loves and I mean loves candy. We were eating puff pancakes for breakfast a couple of Saturdays ago and Roger was putting both powdered sugar and syrup on his. I couldn't let this go unnoticed and made a snide remark. He commented that he was working on going into a sugar induced comma. Avery promptly said "can I come?" It was so great. We laughed for quite a while. Undoubtedly she would be going too if she had her way with all the candy she could get her hands on.
