The Pirate and The Mermaid opened presents from the family tonight. We had our usual pizza and drinks. The Mermaid kept saying "all for me???" over and over. Very cute!!!
The Pirate loved all his gifts. The family picked out great gifts for them. I wish I had got a shot of the gift Aunt Staci got The Pirate. But we were too busy holding him up and laughing while he was on his Heelys. I think he is gonna need a butt pad!
I just picked some shots from the present opening tonight. The kids say "thank you!'. They have a lot of coloring, watching, playing and falling to do for the next week or so!

Since we live in Florida, it can be tough to get in the holiday spirit. It was 83 degrees and rained 2 inches the other day...snow is just not in the forecast. The city has their holiday tree lighting every year. We decided to take the kids. The chorus from their school sang, we got free cotton candy and cookies and the kids got to try sledding for ther first time. Check out The Mermaid. The Pirate is standing on the stairs waiting his turn. Their eyeballs were as BIG as snowballs. Funny stuff!
Here comes The Pirate!

We had our second visit from our Social Worker this evening. All was going well...how is her attachment, how is she sleeping, eating, does she like having a brother???? Yadda, yadda, yadda....
So, The Pirate is getting antsy because it is dinner time. He climbs onto the chair behind me and is hanging off the chair WHEN....The Mermaid comes up and tickles his feet. WHAM!!!! Right in the nose goes his foot! No big deal, right? She didn't scream, cry or complain. She walks away and turns around and BLOOD!!!!! Coming right out her nose....of all times to do this! I clean her up....she is still not screaming or crying. Problem is, it won't stop bleeding!!!! 15 minutes later...it stops. Thank God! I have to say, he got her good. It looks better now and it has stopped gushing.
Well, I can only imagine what the Social Worker thinks????? I hope she does not write this up in her report to the CCAA for our 6 month check. Of all days....why????
