Emily...

Emily sure did a number when she went sledding. Today she seems to be feeling better, but man, every time I look at her I feel so sad for her. She hasn't been complaining about the pain as much today. Last night her left eye was getting all swollen and this morning and most the day her right eye has been really swollen. I am not too sure she won't end up with a black eye. Much of the redness on her skin is gone, but of course things are scabbing over so all those little unnoticeable scratches are becoming more visible. I got some neosporin today for her scratches. I couldn't find my other stuff, it is still boxed up in probably box 47 or maybe 12, or some other box. I had put some first aid cream on it, but I don't like that as much as neopsorin. It doesn't seem to go on as easy and everything is all white... Although now Emily is complaining because she is so greasy! You can win either way I guess. I hope she heals up fast. She is worried about going in public with her scratches, and has been begging to stay home from church. "Everyone is going to be staring at me!" I am sure she will be fighting more tomorrow as we are getting ready for church. I can't really blame her for not wanting to go. I remember one time I got a really bad sunburn, and my lips got sunburned really bad and they were all swollen up like 2 or 3 times their normal size, I didn't want to go because of that, and the pain of it all. I don't know that there is much difference really. Poor, poor Emily.

OOOOOHHHHH! POOR Emily is right! I'm SOO sorry to hear about her sledding accident. I remember sledding when it's icy, too & it's NOT fun when you crash! I hope she feels better really soon!!

I love the girls pictures, too! It looks like they're having a lot of fun with their new cameras!
