So I Took Some Random Quiz....

....and apparently I have more conservative political views than I thought! LOL

David is pro-Mitt for sure, so I think he'll be happy to see this.
81% Mitt Romney

75% John McCain
75% Fred Thompson
72% Tom Tancredo

Final Score: Ava = 0 ; Playground = 1

Well...... for those of you that we haven't seen or talked to in a while, let's just say that our new year didn't exactly get started on the right foot.... LOL. Let's just say, there was a slight incident at the playground. Basically, Ava was going down the slide with David on the afternoon of New Year's Eve, and the sole of her shoe got stuck underneath her - and underneath Dave's...uhh... leg - as they were sliding down. Needless to say, it was an unpleasant experience for the both of them. We spent that night - ringing in the New Year - getting x-rays at the Mayo Clinic. Fantastic.

The x-rays didn't show any fractures at the time, but the doc said to come back in a week if things weren't completely better. So, Ava couldn't walk for a couple days, and then she started walking, but with a really sad little limp. So, I took her to the pediatrician for another check-up and more x-rays. She suggested I take her to a specialist, which I did this morning. The specialist was PHENOMENAL. She immediately showed me on the x-ray a hairline fracture that had been overlooked on Ava's right tibia. I was so relieved to finally have an accurate diagnosis!! The doctor gave Ava balloons and stickers and sang the "Elmo's World" theme song as she casted her leg. She was the best doctor ever! Ava was smiling and happy the whole time we were in her office, and even said"I love yooooou" and blew kisses to the doctor as we left. So, the cast only has to be on for about 2 weeks, and then her sad little leg drama will hopefully come to an end! Here are some pics and video of the bubs in her "purple sock".

We're Baaaaaaaaaaaa-ck!

10 days of relaxation + snow + friends + family + Christmas = ONE HAPPY TAIT FAMILY

Ava LOVES the cold weather! Who knew that an Arizona baby could withstand such temperatures?

Ava and her cousin Vanessa playing with Nessa's nanny in Chicago. They had a great time together!

Christmas Eve dinner at John and Jenava's. Jenava outdid herself! And yes, we are all wearing paper crowns. We were forced against our will. Some crazy Australian tradition, I guess. :)

Reading "Twas the Night Before Christmas" in our new Christmas jammies.

Then the fun really started!!
