I'm home!

Suzanne and I got home from Colorado late Saturday nite. I came home to this:

Yes- my baby's arm in a splint. Isabel accidently popped Liv's elbow out of the socket. The dr. popped it back in, but Livie was still babying it and crying so they x-rayed it. There were no breaks, but he put a splint on it for 24 hours just to be on the safe side. She was fine today, but I am never leaving home without my babies ever again... until the Def Leppard concert.
I have lots of things to share, but I'm just kinda worn out. (Too much partying- haha) So, I'm working on a post, waiting to exchange pics, Photoshop pics to protect identity, etc... I will let y'all know: We were able to surprise EVERYONE by bringing Thoroughly Mormon Millie with us!! She took a Greyhound for 20 hours to get to Salt Lake City. Then she rode to Colorado with Louise and me. (I get to be Thelma because it's my blog.) So... that was awesome!! Annie personally invited Suzanne and I to a slumber party Friday nite at Carronin's hubby's hotel. We were so excited!! The ladies we were so blessed to meet with were Millie, No Cool Story, Annie, Carrot Jello, ElasticWaistbandLady, Carronin, and last but not least, Sodak!!
I must confess that I slept with Suzanne. We did everything kinda backwards. We slept together, then I kissed her. But you know what they say, "What happens in Colorado, stays in Colorado."

And yes, I did get to get my pic made with the Mike the Headless Chicken memorial statue. I'm so cool.

Glad you're back and had fun. Poor Livie! What is it with your kids' joints popping out all the time?!

Special K ~Toni said...

Glad you are back safe and sound! Did you all miss me? Saying "this is so boring, we need Toni?" I knew it! You did! (Don't burst my bubble!)

If y'all do this next year I want to go! Can I sleep in your car?

Tori, you are SO PRETTY!
I'm glad you had a good time, it's always good to get away.
and I LOVE your song of the day! One of my favorites.
Then again, almost every other song I hear is my favorite...

PJ said...

Fun trip!

Hey, that happened to one of my daughters when she was little. Now, every six months or so it will pop out of join! I have to pop it back in. Oh, I'm serious.

PJ said...

joint

Tori :) said...

Sister- It must be from Sei's genes. It's happened with Taj and Liv.

Toni- I would LOVE for you to be there next time!!

Heidi- I hope you aren't saying I'm pretty judging by that pic with Livie. I could have packed for my trip with the bags under my eyes!!

PJ- Yeah- it's happed 5 or 6 times with Taj. Sei would've popped Liv's back in if he had been sure that's what was wrong. Now we'll know. Fun fun fun...

Suzanne said...

I deny everything!!! ;D

Ack! Louise is the old one! Although...she seems skinnier! Yep, I'm good with that! :D

Nancy Face said...

Woman...you are one hot chicken! ;)

Lauren said...

You are so gorgeous!!! I am so glad you had fun!

Stepherz said...

Sounds like a blast! So happy you are home safe and am looking forward to your post about the trip!

annie said...

What a fun trip and great experience to meet so many bloggy buddies!
Poor little baby! I'm glad her elbow is okay!

Amanda said...

I've been glum all day. I need to get over it already! There just better be another Colorado blogher or something similar nearby someday soon. Like next month. ;) I'm just so jealous that you got to sleep with Suzanne and kiss her! Oh, and millie too. You gals are pretty sneaky pulling that one off. I would love to have seen everyone's faces!

Glad you are home safe and sound. Sorry about Liv's arm. Poor little thing.

Heffalump said...

Most of my favorite bloggers all in one place! I can imagine there was a lot of laughter. Glad you got to go and that you are home safely!

aubrey said...

i'm glad you had fun! and so cool that you guys brought millie with you. i wish i could have been there for the fun weekend! welcome back!

aubrey said...

and p.s. sorry about liv's elbow. ava did that a lot when she was younger.

Thoroughly Mormon Millie said...

I'm so glad Liv's arm wasn't broken. I guess Sei got off easy... this time. ;)

Thanks again, so much. You and Suzanne are so great and I had such a fun time - I'll never forget what you did for me. :)

Your chicken picture turned out great!

Liam's Mom - Gina said...

It's true, you are a pretty girl, Tori! I loved the "dirt" that Suzanne denies in this post. You are so funny!

I can't wait to see your doctored photos and the full report! That is so awesome that Millie was able to go, and at such great lengthS!

Tofutti Kline said...

Just lurking around. What's with the headless chicken?

Emily said...

Sounds like a blast! Where does Millie live? Why is that chicken picture so great?

wendysue said...

Fun little getaway! Every Mom needs that.

My second one popped her elbow out all the time. . .poor babies. Seriously have your Dr. show you how to pop in back in, because the quicker you can get it popped back in, the better. Seriously. They called it "nurse-maids elbow" whatever that means, but their little ligament is too loose there and it slips out of place. . .they usually grow out if by the time they're about 3. . .

Love the chicken picture.

utmommy said...

Soo sad I couldn't make it.

Sounds like a blast. Love the chicken picture.

Tori :) said...

Suzanne- I think Louise IS skinnier. But Thelma hooked up with Brad Pitt... ;)

Nancy- Awww thanks!

Lauren- You're so sweet Lauren!!

Stepherz- It was awesome. And I thought of you!!

annie- It really was a blast!

Amanda- You were missed. Suzanne and I bragged about you.

Heffalump- Most of my fave bloggers too! It rocked.

Aubrey- I wish I had been able to meet you in Denver. Next time...

Millie- It was so awesome spending all that time with you. You're such a cool person.

Gina- I'm working on the post and should have it up in the next couple of days...

Tofutti Kline- Welcome.

Emily- Millie lives in Vancouver. That statue commemorates Mike The Headless Chicken- a real chicken that lived without a head. He was from Fruita- the town we were in. He's "famous." You can click on the link to see more.
And the pic is great because I'm in it. haha

Wendysue- My son popped his all the time too! Sei knows how to pop it back in, but Liv was acting so differently from Taj that he thought he'd better get it checked out just in case. Taj has popped his out 5 or 6 times. Not fun.

Valerie- I wish you had been there. :(

Amber said...

Wow, to think my lunch was only the warmup for these ladies. Sounds like a blast!

carronin said...

Now both of our babies are in casts. I'm glad your little cutie is okay. It was so great to meet you this weekend and thanks for bringing Millie that was, SWEET!
Your headless chicken picture is the best, I love it.

Jean Knee said...

you're back and it sounds like fun.
only there sure seemed to be a lot of sleeping together going on

Yvonne said...

I clicked on the link and read about Mike--there certainly should be a celebration held in his honor!!!
Love the picture. I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures of your great time together.

Lisa said...

Poor little Liv! Glad she is okay.

Love the chicken picture!

wendy said...

You make a great chicken!

What a fun fun fun weekend!

No Cool Story said...

Aw poor Livie :( AT least it's not broken.
That chicken never looks so hawt.

I'm fried, my brain is mush at the moment (Bloggers gone wild and all that), but I wanted to stop and tell you that I love ya.
:)

David said...

Note to self-stop picking Eliza up by her arms.

BTW, the chicken picture is funny!

Carrot Jello said...

Sheesh, everyone with sleeping with people at that par-tay. It was fun meeting you, and thanks for bringing a surprise for us!

Debs said...
