I did a stupid thing this weekend. I tripped and fell and twisted my ankle. We went to the emergency room shortly afterwards. The baby is just fine but the doc said I should stay off my foot for 3 weeks! That is just not going to happen. I've done really well at staying off of it since it happened and I will be home by myself all day tomorrow to give it more time to be elevated and heal. It has greatly improved since it happened yesterday. I can't walk on it yet, but hopefully in the next day or two I will be able to take a step. Below are a couple of pictures. It is still pretty swollen and black and blue.

A few days ago I was checking on the kids because I hadn't heard them for a while. I came into the living room and saw them like this watching TV. They were so cute.

Nice butt crack Alana.

We've been busy enjoying life down here in Tennessee. It has gotten chilly over the past month. I already can't wait until spring comes around again.

Alana has all next week off of school for Thanksgiving vacation. We are headed to Steve and Jenae's - - for Thanksgiving. Steve is on his way home from Afghanistan right now for 18 days. Chris is just itching for him to come home. He can't wait to play with his buddy again. We should have a great time and eat some great food.

Here are some recent pictures we have taken of the girls. They have been doing great except that Alana has a cold right now. Hopefully it will pass quickly and the rest of us don't catch it. Anyway, enjoy the pictures.

Dare devil.

Just watching some TV.

Alana made this Pilgrim bonnet at school.

Silly girl.

Just pickin'.

Outside play time.

We've had a good Halloween week. We started last Sunday looking for a couple of pumpkins. The girls each picked out one. It sure was a tough decision for them.

Then we cleaned out the pumpkin. Alana thought it was too icky and only helped for a bit.

Dad cleaned the rest of it out for the girls.

We carved Alana's pumpkin on one side and Alana colored the other side. They kinda went nuts with the markers.

Alana was a Fairy Princess and Skyler just wore a pumpkin shirt.
