Snap, Crackle & Pop

After watching so many commercials of children & their mommies listening to their rice krispies snap, crackle & pop we just had to buy a box!! Adelaide is a very picky eater and rarely ever eats breakfast but she is LOVING Rice Krispies!! She even loves it when I add strawberries to them! She calls them her "snap, pop's" and eats them all by herself with a little help from Mommy! Oh my little girl is growing up so fast!

So Rice Krispies aren't the only thing that were going "snap, crackle & pop" this week at the Coleman house! Tuesday night Mike & his great friend Sinclair go bike riding out at Fort Chaffee. While they go bike riding my very good friend Alison and I have date night, we go to eachothers house and have dinner & wine while the kids play! So halfway through our "date night" I got a call from Mike saying he had a "little" spill and may have been broken his collar bone! He said that they were going to head to the ER and would be there in 15 minutes, he TOTALLY acted like it was just a little crash! Just before he called my mom had called to say she was about to drop by so that Adelaide could see Jack & Jill. As soon as they got here I calmly headed to the hospital just expecting to sit with Mike while he got an X-Ray. Needless to say it was way way way MORE than just a maybe broken collar bone. He had a very Very broken collar bone, a few fractured ribs, slight concussion, and road rash all over his back and down his hip! So after x-rays, CAT scans, and cleaning & dressing all of his wounds we thanked all the fabulous doctors & nurses and headed home! Neither of us can even imagine how bad it would have been if he had not been wearing his helmet.
He has been a great patient, the road rash is healing quickly but he is still very sore and uncomfortable!! I am so thankful for all the great friends & family that have been so loving, caring and helpful!
