had myself and adventure today. not of the fun variety really. more of the humiliating painful kind. i was asked to do a demo of a crock pot recipe in front of a group of church women. so i had to do it not in a kitchen but out in the basketball court area. so i brought all my stuff already pretty prepared except a can of apple pie filling that had to be opened. as i am talking and opening i was tearing the last of the lid of the can off and just fling apple filling all over me. then as i get back to business of adding ingredients i look down to see the table with large drops of blood. well, i have had 2 bloody noses in the past 2 days so i am thinking i am having a nose bleed--all over my demo dessert. then i look down and realize my thumb is covered in blood and dripping A LOT!

so i kind of announce to everyone that i cut myself and run to the bathroom to wash it off and put a paper towel around it. which i do and by the time i get back and start up again the towel is bloody. so i get the dessert made and tell everyone that this will go home to my family (no blood actually got in the crock pot). but i got recollections of the snl dan ackroyd parody of julia child where he is cooking and cuts his hand off and is just gushing blood everywhere. that's kind of how i felt.

meantime--someone gives me 2 bandaids and by the time i got home those were soaked. i had at least an inch gash. thank heavens i got a tetanus shot this year! anyhoo i ask dave to take a look at it. now for the backstory--when anna got her head split open for the 2nd time the hospital gave dave the superglue they use instead of stitches. so of course the first thing dave wants to do is "glue" it. no thanks dr. evil. then he wants to sanitize it. guess again monkey boy. finally he gets the iodine package out of the first aid kit and wraps it on my thumb and covers it with 3 bandaids. i took it off tonight and washed it and replaced it with one of those bandaids with antibiotic on it. but it is sore and hurts to bend my thumb. ouch.

i am off tomorrow to scrap with my homeys. but i thought i would post some layouts i did before we left for disneyland. run, my peeps and good times were scraplifts. peace out and go buy some pumpkins for me...L

well disneyland was awesome. i have tried to load pictures twice now to no avail. but i loved having all my kiddo's together on vacation. we had a great time. no one was killed. believe me, that makes a family vacation a success. since i can't get any pictures on i though i would let you watch one of my favorite bands playing one of my new favorite songs. here are, what carson likes to call, the foo foo fighters. enjoy...L

I don't know how i could have forgotten my 6th daughter alyssa!! who went and moved all the way to new york (which is too far for me to ride my bike there to go and see her). she has been one of brianne's best friends since their freshman year at BYU and we have been cursed, i mean blessed, to have her in our family since then! she can cook up some good chinese food and is utterly beautiful and full of some funky spirit! I keep telling her she should marry dallas but she is one stubborn girl! plus all of my girls love her and they sat with alyssa and her "friend" (she should so marry that boy!) at brianne and jeff's wedding luncheon. i miss you alyssa!! my sweet hapa daughter!!!

in other news we are planning on going to cali for october break and all of my kids are going!!! brianne, jeff and dallas are going to hook up with us at disneyland. i haven't had all of my family together for a vacation in a long, long, time! and i am so looking forward to spending time together. just think--all 9 of us in a hotel room together for 4 days=let the fun begin...L
