Tanner has been asking for braces for a long time and the time has finally come. Doesn't he look like a stud? He will get braces on the bottom in a couple of weeks.

Happy birthday Emily!

On May 12th it was Emily's birthday. So Thelissa and Stephanie and I decided we would surprise her at school! Well, once we got to the school we found out that she was on a field trip to the zoo! So guess where we went? Yep we tracked her down at the zoo and got to wish her happy birthday! It was fun to see her for a bit on her birthday. This was only a few days after I had my wisdom teeth pulled and I was still hurting pretty bad. It took everything I had to smile as much as I did for our picture.
My little sister Emily is so wonderful! I love her so much and think the world of her. Love ya lots!

6 week recovery!

Today marks 6 weeks of recovery for me! And no it was not a 6 week recovery after having a baby. I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled 6 weeks ago. It has been a long recovery for me. I had one impacted tooth that has given me lots of problems. I'm pretty sure there was a lot of drilling that went on. This is a picture taken of me the day I came home from surgery. OUCH!! I still can't believe that was me.

I am finally feeling much better today and when I met with the oral surgeon today he told me I still have a while until I'll have full recovery on the left side of my mouth, but that things are looking good! I have been numb on that side of my face this whole time and today I can almost feel my entire lip! That is huge for me. I'm still tingly and numb on the side of my chin, but things are looking good. I'm grateful I am almost back to normal so I can really kiss my sweetie! I'm also grateful I can successfully eat a hamburger without cutting it up. I had many, many smoothies, cream of wheat, chocolate shakes, bean with bacon soup smashed up, mashed potatoes, yogurt, applesauce, ice cream, and my favorite was chocolate texas sheet cake. I could down that stuff so fast because it basically melts in your mouth! I'm now back to brocolli, fiber one, pbj sandwiches, hamburgers, and too many other things. :) It was kind of nice not really having a desire to eat very much. The desire is back and I'm on a roll! Tonight is my first date with Clate since my surgery when I can actually order something normal instead of a smoothie and soup(without chunks). I love Friday night date night!! I've learned that wisdom teeth should NOT be pulled when you are 35 years old with 6 children! The recovery is much quicker when you are 17 or 18 with no kids. Live and learn, right?
