Evyn's Terrible, Horrible No Good VERY BAD Day.

December 10 was a very traumatizing day for all of us, Especially my little Evyn Dolly. Around 3 Grant, with all good intentions, was in the kitchen wanting a drink, so I got him one and got Evyn one as well in their "designated" plastic cups :) They sat in the kitchen drinking thier juce and I went into the bedroom to finish folding clothes. Grant had decided that he needed more juice and asked me for some, I topld him to wait a few more minutes and I would be right there. Then a few minutes later I heard him say to Evyn "go show mommy" and I started to walk into the front room to meet her assuming Grant had successfully pourd more juice in her cup and didn't want her to spill it all over the house. I saw him coaxing her and told him that she needed to stay in the kitchen with the drink and she knew that but Grant kept coaxing her and she was resisting his nudging, It was at that moment I realized she had a different cup than I had given her "a big thick glass cup" (the only glass one we have in the house by the way) and as I urged Grant Not to push on her, He pushed, tripped the both of them and the came crashing down, Grant on top of Evyn, and Evyn's mouth straight onto the glass cup. She screamed and had what I thought was the berry juice she had been drinking all over her face, I scooped her up and noticed her front tooth was gone and realized that the "berry juice" was her blood, I freaked! but tried my hardest to stay calm and ran her to the bathroom and rinsed her mouth so that I could asses the damage. After Evyn (and Mommy) stopped crying we went into the kitchen to see if we could find her tooth, no such luck so I just assumed she had swallowed it. I swear I called EVERY pediatric dentist from here to Sandy and they had all closed at 2 and would not see her for an emergency because she had not been to the dentist yet and is not a "'registered patient" Really people?? I was so mad, so Monday I scheduled her for an appointment, it was a crazy day and in the midst of all the running around I had left her insurance card at the house and said that I would have to re-schedule! UGHHHHH! They put her on stand by and we finally got her in to see the dentist on Wednesday and this is what we found out.

Her tooth was shoved back up into her gum 1/4 in! we were all so shocked, even the dentist said he had never seen a case as bad as this.

She hated the dentist, but she was such a happy girl after she stopped crying when it happened, she even attempted to eat an apple!
This was Saturday night, her face was so swollen clear up to her eye.
The dentist wants to try and avoid invasive surgery, so he is having us wait it out and see if the tooth will push itself back down just enough that he can just pull it out, that can take up to 3 months, so if this does not happen then she will have to have surgery :( poor baby.

A much needed getaway.

Lets play catch....up! haha! So last weekend I finally got the opportunity to visit my family, its hard to make time to go anywhere when your husband works EVERY Saturday, but this weekend Deryck had a business trip to go on and had to drive through Cedar so I thought it would be a good opportunity to visit the family. Deryck drove down with a coworker who was also going on the trip the night before so that they wouldn't have to drive down early Thursday morning which is good news for me so I wouldn't have to drive him EARLY that morning. The kids and I drove down Thursday night and surprised my family, it was so much fun! It was so nice to get to hang out with everyone and play games together again, have a dance battle while playing the XBOX kinnect (which by the way is Flippin awesome!) and just sit and laugh with my sister and mom. Grant even got to have dinner with the ward missionaries (my mom was feeding them that night) and he was so excited about it. Aunti Andi and Uncle Tyler treated me and the kids to a showing of Tangled, which was absolutley fantastic and it was Evyn's first real experience watching a movie like a big girl with her kiddi combo pack and her own seat! It's not often that we get to go to the movies, so The next day we went to Harry Potter, with my brothers Anton and Aaron, and my all time favorite Alexis (aka aaron's/Grant's girlfriend ;) ) and Deryck, Love love loved it! Saturday I got to spend some time with my dad while giving him a ride to Orderville to pick up a work truck, good chatting and good times, that is until his work truck's fuel pump stopped working on the way back just 15 miles up the canyon ;) Deryck's trip was more than successful which made the weekend even better ( we all know that is a good thing;) We topped off the weekend with Impromptu family pics since we were all together and it was a good time.
Gotta love my family, what a good looking posse!
I didn't get around to editing these but everyone looks cold except for dad, good choice on your background pops!

haha! my inner "special" came out in this one!

Could not get Evyn to look at the camera, granted it was cold and she just wanted to get out of there, but don't you just love Grant's cheesy face in all the pics? ;)

Boring blogging/ SEW....What's up!

Ok so I really want to blog but I always feel like I have to have pictures on all of my posts, well looks like Im going to have a really Boring blog for a while because my camera is busted;( so sad because I have all this stuff to take pictures of and NO camera. First off, I found as my friend Megan would say "a jem" of a sewing machine at the DI and amazingly it is fully functional and all parts are metal! YAY! I have been waiting for this moment for a long time, most of you are thinking "why didn't you just buy a new one?" well for those of you who know about sewing machines, know how expensive a good machine can cost and most of you who know me, know that I am borderline CHEAP, and broke (but that's a whole different story) haha. So you can imagine how thrilled I was when I found out this machine was in great working condition and only $20. I would love to say I have sewn a million things with it already but the truth is I find that the only time I have to sit down and sew is when the kids are naping, NICE! I love the kids clothes at GAP, but find their clothing to be rediculously OVER priced, So I frequent the store (with phone camera ready) and snap pics of my favorite pieces, examine the fabric and identify the pattern and before you know it Im home sewing a replica for usually under $8, this is where I wish i had my camera so you could see for yourself, Maybe I'll just take all my pieces over to my cousins or have one of my friends snap some photos of them. Can't wait to share my creations with you!

Spooks, Tricks, and Treats!

This year for Halloween we enjoyed a Day at Cornbelly's (pictures coming soon) as a gift from my parents. Then we spent the night trick or treating with cousins!
Grant was M.I.A. for this picture, but in case you couldn't tell, that is Evyn on the far left, she was Tinkerbell! since she has no hair, I made her a wig! haha! All of the kids were sooo darn cute!
And of course when one child starts to cry during picture taking, its like a chain reaction!
Grant, Reagan, and Mya loading up.
One of my favorite things of the night was Grant and his method for getting a lot of candy, "We got to hurry to the next one, then run to the next one!" and at every door he would say "Trick or Treat! Halloween! "
Cute cousins in their skeleton jamies!
The parting gifts
We dined on Navajo tacos, they were pumpkins!
Chelsea's homemade doughnuts and cookie dough spider truffles.

All thanks to this cute family, Thank you Chelsea and Josh!

Nana and Papa Visit!

Last weekend my dad actually had a few days off work! I know... crazy! So him and my mom came up for a little getaway to watch a JAZZ game and visit. There was nothing that I needed more last week than to see my parents, it really took my mind off of things and I needed that the most. We went to Thanksgiving Pointe on Saturday, they weather was not ideal so we just went to the Barnyard Boo, it was starting to get too cold to be outside so we didn't have a chance to hit up Cornbelly's but my parent's being who they are, purchased us some tickets so that we could take the kids on a warmer day. I can't begin to tell you what amazing parents I have but I my kids adore them as much as I do so it's hard on all of us when they leave, and we already can't wait to be able to spend more time with them as soon as we can. But Im just glad that they were able to make a trip up. Here are some pictures from their visit.

She kept saying "oohhh! Punkins!"
isn't thist the cutest little cheesy face you have ever seen?! What a crack up!

Need I say more? ;)
My Evyn Elyse.

Spooky Spooky!

I love the face Grant is making! We wanted to get a picture of him and Evyn together with the fall leaves, but he insisted that we take one of him riding the sheep! That's Grant for ya!

Grant found a pony to ride that was just his size, He didn't wear his cowboy boots for nothin!

A Weekend in "Grandmaland"

This last weekend we packed up the kiddos and headed to Colorado to visit Grandma Pennie at her new place. When we drove up the first thought was Snow White and WOW! It's about 10 acres and her house is a little old victorian style house, white red and green, really old, but so darling, I love old houses because they have the most unique layouts. Grant told me that there was even a "whompus kitty" that lives in the attic! haha! what an imagination. Im soo sad about the pictures, I took pictures of all of our adventures every day we were there, of Grant and I riding horses together, Deryck fishing in the river, Grant and Evyn chasing chickens and swinging on the tire swing horse, but the last day we were there my camera decided to go crazy and all my pictures were lost, so all of these pictures were taken just right before we left on Sunday. It was loads of fun though and we were glad that we got to visit.
YEEEE HAWW! Ride em Cowboy!

Farm Fresh Eggs!
Chicken Run
Singin E I E I O!

You know me, I gotta make some Monster Cupcakes! SPOOKY!

Can someone tell me where the time went? Because I would really like to know so that I can tell it to slow down just a bit;) Grant is 3 today, I have been saying for the past 2 weeks now " I can't believe Grant will be 3!" because I really just can't get my head around the thought!I love you my little Grant man and I hope that you will have a wonderful 3rd birthday.
