Lots of catching-up to do around here. First off, Ellery's birthday party. Such a fun time for her and her little friends. We had someone come and make balloon animals, did some face painting and crafts, followed by eating and playing. I feel so fortunate that Ellery has such a nice group of little playmates.
On a less fun note, last Friday Ellery broke her left arm for the second time. She received roller blades for her birthday and asked to take them to the park with us. I thought this was a great idea, as the bottom surface at the park is recycled rubber(as in a soft place to land). However, she fell on her elbow and happened to hit it "just right" for a second fracture. It was a bit dramatic and scary for her(as well as mom) because she was in some pain. We were fortunate to get into a local orthopedist office where they saw us right away and put a cast on her arm. She should have the cast off in three weeks, just two days before Christmas. Our girl is a trooper!!
