Crisis Averted

It probably isn't a good thing when the four year old and the two year old are sneaking off, giggling with a bottle of pancake syrup, to go and play in your bedroom. Luckily, I caught them on the way there.

In other news, Justice had a bit more excitement in his weekend than I prefer. Bruce met the kids and I at the park Friday when he got off work, to do some sledding. We were having a great time! The inch of ice under the inch of snow made the hill REALLY slick and we were going so fast that Ross and Mark were having fun sledding without a sled. Justice, however preferred the sled because it was faster. He has developed quite the knack for doing a running start and then diving onto his waiting sled for maximum speed. However, the park bench at the bottom of the hill had other ideas. It gave a rather abrupt and painful stop to his maximum speed, when he ran face first into its waiting legs. He had a bloody nose and such a huge bump immediately. It was rather scary! Bruce took him straight to the E.R. in his work truck, while I took the other kids and the dog home, grabbed the insurance cards and tore off to meet him there. After a CT scan and some X-rays, they told us that he was just fine. WHEW!!!! He did get a spectacular bump on his noggin though! These pictures really don't do it justice (no pun intended). It's now Monday and other than looking a little strange, he's perfectly fine.

I was going to ask about that on Sunday, but I forgot. It did look like a nasty scrape. Justice seems to have knack for injuries doesn't he? I think it's that "no fear" personality he has.
