Sienna's Fractured Arm

Friday afternoon, Sienna "fell" off of Brayden's bed. At least, that is the story that I got. Sienna did cry after she fell, but she wasn't screaming and her arm appeared fine (I checked it over several times). Grandma & Grandpa Boley even came over to babysit so Chris and I could go out to dinner and she seemed fine while we were gone. This morning, she still didn't seem to be using her arm much and she had also developed a bruise in her armpit. After we took the kids to the dentist, I decided to take her to the doctor, just to make sure she was ok. The doctor decided to x-ray her arm, and low and behold, there was a fracture in her upper arm! Even the x-ray tech seemed surprised! Here she is decked out in her new sling (we still have to take her to an orthopedist this week):
Here is a picture I took of her x-ray. (click the x-ray to get a close-up of the fracture)

I'm guessing that the sling isn't going to last long...
All she wants to do is take it off, and she is supposed to wear it for 2-3 weeks!!!

Work, Work, Work!!!

All the kids ever want to do is work, work, work! If only they could make "real" money, then Chris wouldn't have to work so hard!

One would think that Sienna would be bothered by the hair that is constantly hanging in her face. She hates having her hair touched, and unless we are leaving the house, I don't try to touch her hair. I guess she's going to be a tom boy like me! Although, she is pretty adament that she does NOT want anyone to cut her hair...although, I'm not sure if it is because she likes her long hair, or if she just doesn't want anyone touching her hair. ;)
Brayden and Sienna LOVE to work on their cash registers (we had to buy them an extra one for Christmas so they'd stop fighting over the McDonald's register). They are sitting on comfy chairs that I made out of the couch cushions...
