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? ;)
