Pretties Friday...Keeping Watch...

Hi everyone!

Sorry I'm a bit late with posting today...I was keeping watch over a few things that needed to be done at home and also with my lil' guy who I took to the doctor this morning when I noticed his splint didn't look quite right. Turns out I was right to go in because it did shift a bit, so the doctor got him all fixed up and did an x-ray while we were there. The xray shows that the healing is already beginning and he was actually able to get his stitches out which was unexepected and a relief. My little dude was a bit apprehensive, but it was nothing a sucker couldn't fix!

So, now we go back in a few weeks to determine when the rods will come out. No school all next week either w/ Thanksgiving break so we will continue to heal and keep him busy in his little chair. He is being SO good through all of this and the doctors and nurses are just wonderful. LOTS to be thankful for this year!!!

With Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner, I decided to use this adorable Nativity set from Paper Pretties today. Isn't this little shepherd boy just the cutest? I love these new sets. Head on over to check them out! I was also able to incorporate this week's Mojo challenge which always makes me happy :) Speaking of challenges....
