{we like to move it, move it}

What a fun weekend and a special one at that! As most of you know our little miss California sunshine was released from Phoenix Children's Hospital on Friday, after nearly a full two months there! Yay! So in celebration of her newly found freedom The Hubby, Bossy Pants, Baby Boy and yours truly joined her and my parents and cousin Erika {her new BFF} for some pizza and a movie! We all thought Callie would enjoy the movie, but had no idea HOW MUCH she would love it! What movie you ask? Only the best! Madagascar 2! The first one is a favorite of theirs {and mine} and the second one in my opinion was even funnier. Callie, Bossy Pants and even Baby Boy LOVED it! Callie was clapping and shouting "yay" nearly the entire time, as she chomped on sour gummy worms {her new favorite snack} and Bossy Pants found a new love of popcorn and larger than life animated animals. This was the first time we've taken him to the theatre for a movie since he was oh 6 months old. I don't know if our sad little tv will be enough for him anymore! :) And what a doll our Baby Boy is! He was perfectly content as long as he could see the movie. It was so much fun!

While we were down in the valley I made it to JoAnn's! Yay! I love that place! They had their fleece 50% off so it was the perfect time to buy for Christmas projects. Have I mentioned that I had this hair brained idea to do a "mostly" homemade Christmas this year? What was I thinking?! No, I'm actually really excited it's just that I should have had the hair brained idea about 10 months sooner! I'm cramming now but hoping to make it. I'm almost done with gifts for my 5 youngest sisters which is so exciting! I will post when they're complete! Wish me luck please. I for sure will need some happy thoughts coming my way if I'm going to do everything on my list!

And just to end on a wintry note....we had the first snow of the season last night! Bossy Pants and Baby Boy are both a bit under the weather, so we won't be playing in it. I did take the two year old out to throw a few snow balls and make hand prints on daddy's truck but that was the extent of it. I promise next time we will play our little hearts out in all that fluffy white stuff!

I heard raves about that movie. I think maybe we'll actually go to a move in the theatre. I didn't know you were down here too. I got the priveledge of seeing little Cal-gal at the yard sale. She looked SO GOOD and was just the happiest, loveable sweetheart ever!! She LOVED my friends four year old girl too. So cute and it was such a treat to see her:0)! Loves to you and all your family!

How happy you guys must be that she is coming home. She has made great progress and now it seems to be paying off. Sounds like you had a fun weekend!

WOW!!! What GOOD NEWS!!! My name Richard Wallace. I was the Paramedic that worked on your daughter. Today while I was working in Pinetop, we started to talk about Callie. My fulltime job is a Captain for Pinetop Fire, the day we got your call I was working with Show Low EMS. Thanks for your blog so I could keep up with how she was doing. I know that a lot of people have been praying for you, your family and little Callie. I know everyone at Show Low Fire, the hospital and Pinetop have been praying for Callie also. Watching you, as you brought your daughter to me in the ambulance. Seeing your reluctance to lay her down so we could go to work on her. Then seeing how your family and friend came to your side at the hospital. All I can say is WOW!!! I just wanted to let you know that you have been an inspiration to me and all the people that know about what happened. I am so happy for you that she is home, and I am thankful that God heard our prayers. I know that I have said a lot of them, and cried a few tears. I just thought that today was a good day to drop you a line. I’m sure she still has some more recovery to go, but I know she is going to be fine. Thanks and God Bless
