Time & Time Again!

I keep finding that I haven't had much time for blogging these last few weeks. Maybe I just haven't made the time for it. Summer just gets SO crazy busy I don't know what to do with myself sometimes. I have so many projects going on that I get scatter-brained just thinking about them all. I have really got to make a goal to finish them in the next few weeks and I should be all set for a fun and carefree summer. Well I would have loved to give you an update on the last few weeks because I have been taking some really great pictures of little noodle to post. However, our hard drive gave out AGAIN! So once again, they are stuck on there for the time being. I made Steve go buy a new hard drive last night with 500 GB so we shouldn't be having this problem again after this week. I am on the dinosaur back-up computer today. Luckily, I still had some pictures on the camera from the weekend. So, here ya go......


For Memorial Day weekend, The Thuernagle Family (Katie's Family) met at our Dad's gravesite to drop off some beautiful flowers, chat a bit and play a game. Thanks to Aunt Mohna, we had a fun time learning about who goes where in the family tree. I think we did a great job of making all of the matches. Abigail kept Steve moving with all of her running around. After we finished there, we all headed to our house to share some snacks and chat some more. We had a great time. We let the kids go out for a bit and that ended up not being such a great idea. The older cousins started some sort of game of tag, while Abigail kept more to herself. She was just wandering around and WHACK! She got plowed by the older kids and kinda did a little face plant and her feet flew way up over her head. It happens all the time to the poor little kids who are just little and less noticeable to the older playing kids. She came out with a wound that I thought wasn't too bad but in the next few days turned out to be MUCH worse than I had imagined. Plus, she is in the 'bang her head on the floor throwing a fit' stage so it was the worst kind of injury for the stage she is in. Here are the pictures of her skinned up nose.
Here is right after it happened....doesn't look to bad eh? Just wait!
Here is day 2 with Grandma Ruth. If you are wondering why Abs is wearing Jadles (that is what we call PJ's) and a nightgown....she just felt like it so I let her...funny huh? She cracks me up.
Here is Day 3.....she wasn't speaking nicely to me so she got put into timeout. She banged her face against the pack and play and got blood all over it! Her hands were all bloody because she kept touching it. She just kept crying for a bandaid.

Here is Day 4...today! She is looking much better ( I really hope this isn't going to scar!) She is pulling the Abby Lou Who hair do off again today! GOTTA LOVE IT!

OH MAN! I hate those nose skins! They are no fun at all... and you are definitely right about it looking worse as time went on... or as fits went on, as the case may be.

Thanks for the update! You are too cute. See you tomorrow at Mom's group? :)

Oh geez I'm so sorry about Abby's poor little nose. I think it was Josh that knocked her over. I'll have to tie my kids up to a tree next time. :)

If it helps you feel any better, please know that all kids simply love asphalt at that age. It must be true. How else can one explain the fact that all toddlers kiss asphalt, some multiple times? I hated to schedule portraits because I knew with perfect certainty that one of the kids would end up with some big scar or scab in a prominent facial position! Kids are great healers, though! Great photos, by the way!
