Even though the Pedi didn't think so. Even though she was barely limping by this morning and she didn't react in pain when her foot was turned every which way. Even though she never once complained from Monday (when she fell -or maybe jumped- from the 4th step down to the bottom of the stairs) until this morning (when she finally said "my bones hurt")....she's got a broken leg.
I wish I insisted on an x-ray on Tuesday when I brought her in. My gut told me to, but I didn't. So my tough girl limped (and jumped, and climbed, and danced, and skipped, and ran) on a broken leg until today when I called back (for the third time) to demand an x-ray of my still-limping daughter's foot.
I knew she was a tough cookie, but WOW, I have a whole new respect for her now!
If you want to help your kids understand the true meaning of Christmas, this is the BEST Christmas DVD out there. It is called The Very First Noel, and it tells the story of Jesus' birth from the perspective of the 3 wise men. It is narrated by Andy Griffith, the animation is so rich (and kid friendly), and the new renditions of Christmas carols that make up the soundtrack are excellent. It really is a classic.
Tonight on Jon and Kate Plus 8 on TLC, they are having some sort of wedding special (I don't watch the show, so I'm not really sure what the scoop is). I just saw the commercial for it and apparently, they all go to Hawaii and stay at the Grand Wailea Resort- the same place Scot and I stayed in July when we went.
Last night, Scot and I finally watched the movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed a documentary created by Ben Stein ("Anyone? Anyone?"). I had heard it was good, but WOW, I had no idea. This movie is a must-see in my opinion. It is a documentary starring Ben Stein in which he investigates the idea that "educators and scientists are being ridiculed, denied tenure, and even fired- for merely believing that there might be evidence of 'design' in nature" (quoted from the back of the DVD). It was really incredible to hear the stories that many scientists tell of how they can explore ANY option about the origin of life unless they start saying, "Well, maybe there was some design involved" (even if they don't necessarily mean God as those of us who believe in creation would believe).
At the very least today should be interesting. Either the election will make history or there will be a huge upset. Come what may, I love election day. I just love seeing Americans pouring into the polling places to exercise their right to vote. I find it exciting even if my candidate doesn't win.
.....now you can go and not pay (so you can still save your money and donate it to bring Owen home!)! Head to Starbucks tomorrow after you vote. Tell them you voted and you'll get a *free* cup of coffee (or so I heard). If you tell them you voted for McCain they'll probably spit in it, so I wouldn't recommend mentioning that! :)
How proud was I that both of my kids dressed up as characters from books? Be still my heart!
