Every year we host a Trick or Treat party on our front porch and spread the word to friends to stop by and have some soup, lots of treats and show us their costumes. Our kids travel the neighborhood circle with a new group of friends every 15 minutes or so. It has become a fun family tradition as well as a tradition that we celebrate with many of our friends. This year's party was a little crazy. We had more Trick or Treaters than ever before as well as our invited guests. Several people ended up on our porch that we didn't even know who wanted to eat and hang out with us. The porch did look inviting but we may have to figure out a different way to get candy to our Trick or Treaters and still host our party for our friends and family. All in all it was a fun evening.
Thursday after school Gary got the call that Cameron had broken some bones. A first in the Yentes Family History. (well gary may have broken something when he was a kid but the rest of us......not until the day after Halloween 2007). Cam took a bad fall during a soccer practice, snapped his wrist off on both bones and or course dislocated everything. Ouch! After 5 hours in the Emergency Room, the possibility of surgery, lots of morphine, x-rays and relocation of everything (super painful according to Cameron) he came home with a cast and a little bit of a heavy heart. Cameron realized that he wouldn't be able to finish out the soccer season for either of his teams or finish out band competetions. Then he thought about Jazz Band, Drumline, Guitar and Drum lessons. Then he remembered P.E. and the trampoline. Just when I thought he would get super sad he said, "So doe's everyone at school know about my broken arm? and Can I go to school on Monday?" Maybe the attention from friends will help compensate for all the other losses????? It is going to be a tough 6-12 weeks.
