Things that go bump in the night.

Last night, Kevin and Owen spent a fun-filled night in the ER. Our friend (and Kevin's cousin's husband) was working in town yesterday, so he came over for dinner. Since Cody was here, all of the kids were wound up and up past their bedtimes. At about 8:00 (ish) Owen was running circles around our coffee table. He tripped and hit his head on the edge. It swelled up HUGE, immediately. We were a little worried (he had another big lump on his forehead from doing a header off of the baby stroller, into the wall in the playroom) so Kevin took him in. I stayed at home, finishing homework with Megan and getting the girls in bed. After 5 hours in the ER, and a head x-ray, Owen was deemed fine. Good thing he has a hard head like his daddy! ;-)
I have a feeling that it's going to look worse before it gets better, but believe it or not, this is looking better. It's more purple today, but the swelling is much, much less.

The boys didn't get back from the hospital until 1:45 in the morning (and then, typically, I didn't sleep well). Here's hoping that we have a nice long nap this afternoon!

Sorry I haven't been here much lately. We had lots of computer problems for a while, and then with the move I haven't had computer access. However, we're finally here in our new home! The unpacking is going slowly (as always) but progress is being made every day (every hour)!

So far, we're loving Lubbock. The weather is great, Megan loves her new school, and it is SO NICE to move someplace where you know at least 1 other person already (Angela, are you sick of me yet?). We haven't had that before!

Until the boxes are unpacked - at least mostly unpacked - I probably won't be blogging much, but I did want to let everyone know that we made it! I'm off to try and organize the basement. If we can get 1 designated "kid" area finished, it will make life so much easier!
