Not As Calm As I Had Hoped....

So, over all it was a successful weekend. I got a good bit of cleaning done, I actually got to go to the Jeremy Camp concert, and we were able to get pumpkins and carve them.

We did have a bit of a wrinkle though. Hubby went to work on Saturday for a few hours, and while there thought it would be fun to attempt to remove his eye with a piece of metal. Ok all you OSHA peeps, yes he had been wearing his safety glasses...he was getting ready to leave for lunch and had taken them off. Someone had propped the metal up near his keys and wallet, he wasn't paying attention, and bent over into it.

He then calls me with the dreaded "Honey I am going to the emergency room".... sheesh who likes THOSE calls?

Now this happened on Saturday morning, cleaning day, so I had of course not showered, dressed, brushed my hair or even brushed my teeth...lol I mean who gets clean to clean? So I had to brush my hair and teeth (didn't want to kill him in the ER) and throw on clothes.

The HUGE praise is that while he's got some damage to the outter part of his eye, and the white part, the cornea was completely spared. The Dr showed me the glowy eye thing when he was checking D's eye (SO cool by the way!) and the cut was amazingly close! SO praising God today!

So the rest of the weekend ended up much more quiet afterwards. He wasn't able to go to the concert, so S and I went. It allowed D's mom to come over and take care of him, it makes her feel good. :) It was great... interesting... but great. :)

So here are some pics from the rest of the weekend....

our sweet doggies...

We played with trucks...

Crazy boys...
The boys drew their own faces...


ewwww pumpkin guts..
Creepy

This is P. He is S's friend from Kenya, he's never carved a pumpkin before, so she invited him over to help.

They did a good job :)
The finished products... not very scary...lol

Glad about your husband. What a close call. Jeremy Camp is so awesome. I hope you guys were able to buy his CD's for 5 bucks too. I just love his new CD and can listen to it over and over. I love that giant dog you got. Can't imagine how much food he eats.

Glad that your sweet hubby will be ok! Wow, God is good.
I NEVER shower to clean, so i understand you sitting in your own stink to clean your own stink.

OK, did you let the boys ride trucks down the slide? did they go backwards???? experienced mamas only would do this.

Glad to hear the Hubs is okay - it's never fun to go to have the emergency room visit but always a blessing to have the person going be able to call you to tell you!!! The pumpkins look awesome, great pictures!
