From Christmas programs at school to Christmas parties up North!

If we get any busier I will not know what to do. Tucker had his school Christmas program on Dec. 3. The music teacher did a really good job. There were a lot of 3rd graders to teach those songs to.

Then on Friday we headed up the mountain for the annual Hatch Christmas party. Jared's mom is a Hatch.We stayed at my mom's in Heber on Friday and on Saturday we helped her assemble some of her many Christmas light decorations she puts up in her yard. While we were doing this Tatum climbed on a two step stool and it colapsed a little on her and she fell off and hit her arm on the ground. She cried for a while and Jared and I consoled her but that did not seem to help much. She said "my arm hurts". I proceeded to grab her arm and bend it back and forth and told her that it was fine it was not broken so to stop crying. We packed up and headed to Jared's moms house and then to the light parade in Holbrook.

We then headed to Jared's aunts house to have hot cocoa and donuts and exchanges gifts again.

Tatum seems to be feeling fine.

We ended our party and went back to Grandma Baker's house to sleep.Tatum woke up the next morning still complaining about her arm and saying that it pops when she moves it. Well we finally decided maybe we should take her in to have it looked at. I headed up to the Show Low ER, which might I add the staff was great. The doctor had x-rays taken and low and behold they came back showing she broke her arm just above the elbow. Woops! We are lucky I did not mess it up more by moving all around. So Tatum's arm was splinted and we head back home. On Wednesday she had a hard cast put on. She told Jared and I, "next time you should listen to me. I told you it was broken". We attended her Christmas program that Wednesday evening Dec. 10. Once again the music teacher did a great job teaching all of those 1st graders many different Christmas songs. I have not put the pictures on the computer yet for that one. Tre' is playing on yet another club baseball team so we have been spending our nights taking him to practice, Tucker to basketball practice, dance and scouts, and Tatum to girl scouts. Will we ever slow down. Probably not in the near future. Jared was just called as the Exec. Ward Sec. As for me, I am just trying to keep up.

Poor Tatum! We did the same thing to Jill when she was about Tatum's age! She jumped off of the couch and cried about her arm all night. We thought it was all drama because she was THE drama queen, until the next day we decided to take her in. Yep...broken arm. We love your blog, can we be added to your blog list? We need to feel special....
