Missing my kids...

Ryan and I are in Gatlinburg, TN with 20 junior high kids. Yep you read that right, 20 12-14 year olds! It really has been a lot of fun but I have to admit, I'm EXHAUSTED!! We got in Thursday night and didn't go to bed until like 2 am this morning and I was back up at 7. I'm the only girl chaperone but luckily we have a good group of girls who aren't overly dramatic and love to sing and dance! This morning we went Zorbing, well they went Zorbing and I took pictures and videotaped. I get sick on the carousel at the mall so the last think I need to do is roll down a mountain in a giant inflatable ball!

We are now back at the cabin and everyone is taking naps, playing games or in the hot tub.
I normally don't miss Ryleigh and Tanner to much when we are gone, and I thought I wouldn't for sure this time since I've been home with them all week. But this morning when I talked to Tanner my heart just broke to hear him! He is so sweet and getting so big!
He was telling me about the new baby fish in mom's pond and I said what did you name him? He responded with Fishy Fish. Ryan said why didn't you name him Nemo and he said "No Daddy he's not Finding Nemo, he's Fishy Fish." 
Thats probably not funny or cute to anyone but me but I literally want to cry when I think about how big he is getting! I guess it's because I know we probably won't have any more kids so he's my last baby. That's also the reason I haven't taken his passy or started potty training. I don't want to admit he's growing up! 
I wish I had a cute story about Ryleigh for today but she was to busy putting on lip gloss and getting ready for Bible School to talk to her parents this morning!

Well I'm going to play a game that involves knee highs, eggs on your forehead and pool noodles...this should be interesting!

And just because I hate a post without pictures here is one from their birthday party.
They really are growing up to fast!

Dance Dance!

Monday night Aunt Lisa asked us over for dinner so we went over there to eat. Ryan had a mission trip meeting at church so he had to eat and leave. Whitney also came over to eat. She was apparently starving and based on the amount of sweat she arrived covered in, her Ac is still not working! (really she had just got back from playing basketball) Anyway, after we ate Whitney and I went to our house and Ryleigh wanted to show off her latest dance moves.
If you haven't seen them just envision someone having a seizure while smiling and laughing!
What can I say, she gets it honest.
So as they were dancing around Tanner fell down. He started screaming crying but I thought he was just upset because he fell. He didn't hit anything he just fell on the carpet. He cried for like 15 minutes straight so Whitney and I decided we should probably take him to the ER. Ryan and Aunt Lisa talked us out of taking him and said if it was still hurting him in the morning to just take him then. After and hour of crying we finally got him calmed down and asleep.
at about 1:30 in the morning I heard him screaming crying so I got up to go in Ry's room to get him and I tripped over him. He was lying in the middle of the hallway saying he couldn't walk b/c his foot hurt!
First thing Tuesday morning I called the doctor and they said to bring him in. We did and he said that he thinks he may have broken his leg and sent us to get Xrays at the hospital.
Here is Tanner on the Xray table (the pictures were taken with my phone that's why they look so bad). he did really good the whole time. We told him they just wanted to take pictures of his foot. The Xray guy said that he was the best patient of his age he has ever had. He got 3 suckers! after that we had to wait on the results so we went and ate lunch at Roly Poly. The pediatrician finally called around 12 and said that it was broken and that we have an appt with the Orthopedic doctor at 2:45.
This is Ryan trying to entertain Tanner while we waited on the doctor. By this time he was tired of waiting rooms.
So were we. Finally it was cast time. He broke his chin bone and they said he will have to wear a cast for 2 weeks. They said if an adult would of had the same break they would of had a series of cast over a 12 week period. He picked a green cast. I thought he would of chosen blue but we let him pick whichever color he wanted. When he saw the pink one he said "Ryleigh can get one to!"
Here he is showing it off. He thought it was pretty cool
Ryleigh was a little upset at first that she didn't have one but by this morning she was glad bc Tanner can't go swimming. Hopefully it will heal fast and he can get it off. He still hasn't got comfortable enough to walk on it but hopefully he will soon! He's to heavy to carry all the time!
