We are feeling so Loved!

I have to say we have the best friends and family in the world. 
We have received so much help. 
I had a panic attack the other night over what to do with my little man. 
I was afraid we would not be able to get him taken care of during the day time hours. 

We have a huge support from our Ward Family (aka church family) People have given us so much this past week and continue to support us through what I can now call this freak accident as a trial.

 Loving people have signed up to take care of my little family. We are receiving meals, love, cards, notes on facebook, phone calls, help around the house and most of all people who are loving my son

. I am not worried about me, but more about my little man and how this will affect him. My worries have been put to rest with all the love that our family is feeling. My little man spent his first week with a wonderful family. Not only did they take good care of little man but loving him in the process. This wonderful family documented the week with him and took picture for us to see him. I have to share a few of them.
So glad he is trying art, I can't get him to do it with me.  Keep at it Little Man you will get the hang of it.

Here they are playing a game of break the ice.

Little Man love playing

If you didn't know little man has a thing with doors, he will spend hours opening and closing anything that has a hinge.

He he is closing Hanna in the pantry.

A new toy, this will be fun.

I love to take walks and go to the park.  

Watch out I will take your spices and hide them.

Run, run as fast as I can.  You can't catch me.

First time ride, I got a little dizzy and had to get off.

The girls showed me how to close them in the pantry.

I had music time and loved it.

This is something I am familiar with.  The swing.

Push me some more.  I love it.

I had a great week with my friends and their toys.

My accident

It was only a week ago I was standing and walking like a normal person. Then one freak accident and I am laid up in bed for the past week and will not be the same for the next few months. Here's how it went down. It was a normal Monday morning. Little man and I get up and do our usual thing. Daddy heads off to work. We eat our morning smoothie plat and then time for a nap. I get showered and ready for the day while he takes a nap. He gets up and we head out the door. We had a few minuets to enjoy the grass and leaves, so little man and I play in the yard while we wait for our friend to come. When Wendie shows up we pack into my car to go visit another friend. We get there and I get little man out of the car. I hold him in my left arm and carry the diaper bag in my right. We are right behind Wendie and the next thing I know. I missed the tops step or the next one and my ankle turns, my other ankle lands wrong and I am on the ground. With my ankles at the top of the stairs my knees down low and little man in my arms. Not a scratch to little man. I am not sure what just happened but I can not move or move my legs. Wendie pulls little man from me and I grab my ankle trying to lift it and move it down. The pain is bad. I take of the right boot first and see it is really swollen and the boot became immediately tight. I then notice something sticking out. I ask if this is a bone or a goose egg bump. After I gain control and can breath normal again I try to stand up. I can't. It hurts and I know that for sure I can not put pressure on my right foot. Polly husband is home and they give me crutches to get into the house. I realize this is really bad and we need medical attention right away. We have a prayer and I leave little Man with Polly. Wendie and I head to the doctor. We make a stop at my doctor with was only a block away and find out that I need to go to the ER this is serious. We check into the ER. After about 7 hours later I check out of the hospital with a temporary plaster cast on my leg. I have broken my ankle in two places and sprained my other one. They tell me that I have to wait for the swelling to go down before I can have surgery. 7-10days later. Still in shock at what happened I go home with my husband. Little man was passed on to another friend for a sleepover, since it was late when we got out of the hospital. Another friend came over that night and gave me a blessing and help me crawl up the stairs to my bed. I will remain upstairs until I have surgery next week.
This is me after my first full day at home in laid up.  In pretty good spirits.

Should have gotten a better picture of the sprained ankle. 
The Young Woman came over this week to visit and they hurried around the house doing little tasks that made a huge difference in our world. Before they left the filled our freezer with meals. I am so thankful to be working with the fine young ladies. They are so much fun, and have so much energy. They made my night with their visit
Me after my visit with the awesome Young Women.

They brought balloons, a sign, a card and frozen meals.  How awesome are they?  I should have gotten a picture of everyone in my room.  Next time.

Thanksgiving With Family

Thanksgiving was a wonderful day. It was so much fun to share it with our guest. The two girls who were visiting had their first Thanksgiving day in the USA. It was fun to share with them our traditions and to go around the table and say what we are thankful for. I can't wait to get the pictures the girls took, because it shows all of us together. 

 That is what makes it so special is spending the holidays with family and friends.
I am thankful for these two boys right here.  They rock my world

Listen it smells good when can I eat?

Everyone pitched in and we made a wonderful dinner.

Little Man loved the company and cooking all the food.

My Thanksgiving plate.  YUM!
