Billy Bobby Smile........

that is what we have at our house. Jake has a Billy Bob smile. While Mike and I were Arizona I got a call from my sister telling me that Jake hit his front teeth on her coffee table and she can't not find his tooth. I tried to keep myself under control until I saw the picture of my poor baby. I instantly broke down in tears that I wasn't there for my baby. So my sister called the dentist which I work for and my sweet dad and sister headed up to the office to have the doctor look at it. I was worried about how he would do without his mom or dad and keep calling my sister to find out the news. Finally my sister called me back and said that the x-ray show the tooth has been shoved all the way up into his gums and it should re-erupt on it's own. Well it has been a week and we are starting to see the tooth again. It is coming in crooked and looks a little funny, but we are just going to continue to watch it and see how it looks once it comes all the way in. I just wanted to make note that I am sure this is not the last injury with this kid.
He is always on the go and the funny thing is that my sister sent me a picture the next day and he was jumping off her fireplace, I guess nothing stops him. So for now we have a Billy Bob smile and I am still praying that it comes in straight and everything go perfect, but the way it looks now I am not sure.

This last week we headed to Arizona! We left early Wed. morning and drove to Las Vegas. We decided to leave Tanner and Jake behind with my family since we were going to a wedding and really no where for them to hang out during the wedding. So Mike, Austen, me and Mike's sister Suzy headed down for some fun. We had a great time spent a couple days in Las Vegas. Had a wonderful time with family, went to a very pretty wedding with a beautiful bride and groom. And visited Mike's parents home in Wickenburg. It was a cute little town and they have a cute little home that they stay in down there during the winters. We laughed until late at night, relaxed, did a little shopping, ate some yummy food, and had a great time. Austen was excited to go he loves to spend time with his cousins. And was so excited to see Aaron before he left on his mission here in the next week. Aaron has a Mustang and he took Austen on some pretty crazy rides. Austen had the time on his life and is hoping he can get a car like Aaron's when he can drive. It was great to get away and relax and spend time with family. Now it is time to start to prepare for our next family vacation. Disneyland here we come!

This is where they would put the people when they went to jail. They would chain them to this tree!
