Showing a little leg...

So before you read too much into the title of the post let me tell you it's not what you think. I've fallen a few times in the last week and been a little clumsy. Last Wednesday I rammed my knee into Avry's coffee table. Yes - it hurt. That same day I also fell down a few stairs at her home while I was holding Rowan. I didn't want to drop him so I fell right on my knees. Tonight I was hanging a picture on the wall, went to step down and tripped again, falling on my knees. I rolled around on the floor for a few minutes yelling "OWIE OWIE OWIE..." (I'm sure I'm not the only one to practice this ritual when I get hurt.) While I was acting like a 2 year old, my own 2 year old looked at me and just laughed. Apparently he doesn't get it yet. You know - the compassion part when someone gets hurt? Rowan joined in on the laughter because Chandler was laughing. I looked down to see what kind of damage I had done and noticed 10+ bruises covering the middle of my thigh down to my knees. I normally don't bruise that easily so it alarmed me a little bit to see so many bruises. The funny thing - I have no idea where half of them came from? Guess that's a good thing. I know you are all DYING to see my leg, so here you go for your viewing pleasure.... ;)



Ok - enough leg for today, I'm going to go play connect the dots...

Wow, that's what my legs looked like a few weeks ago after I broke out in hives (allergic reaction). Hey, weren't you Miss Idaho Falls...doesn't that require you to not be clumsy? LOL. We all go through times of being clumsy, maybe its the altitude change :0)??
I'm just going to send your sentsy bars in the mail because I have NO idea when we'll be down to Utah.

P.S. Carson is really missing Chandler. He keeps asking if we can go to Rigby and see Chandler. Then I tell him Chandler now lives in Utah and he is like, "I want to move to Utah to play with Chandler." Before we were like okay we are moving to Utah, but now we have no idea and Carson gets sad when I tell him we might not go.

Shipping actually isn't that bad, only like a dollar or something. I placed a small order the other day for 2 bars and it totalled like $11.02.

Jeez Tiffany! You should take it easy this week :) I am so clumsy too. Chris always wants to know where my bruises are from, but I can never remember.

Sheesh. Whenever I get all bruised up like that Devin always says to tell people that I just got outta line and had to be put back in my place. As if anyone would ever believe HE was the one to put me in my place. He's too much of a softy. Silly boy - he's such a dork. Anyhow, it made me laugh (no offense) when I saw your leg because I can just imagine Devin saying something jokingly like, "Marshall sure showed her who's boss". LOL

I hope you recover well... and you have hot legs! :o)
