|Yesterday our oldest son was baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I couldn't be more proud of him and his decision to make an keep sacred covenants with his Father in Heaven. I can still remember the day he was blessed, he sure is growing into a wonderful young man! Four more years and he will be receiving the priesthood. WHOA |

Jacob got hurt in football a couple of weeks ago. Since it wasn't due to a collision the Dr. thought it would heal on its own. Nope. So we had an MRI done and things looked bleak for us. How do you tear the ACL and have damage to the meniscus when he just pushed off his leg a little funny??? I am grateful for our little miracle though. Spike did some research and found a doctor that he thought would do a good job. We learned from past painful experience that having the right doctor is crucial. Anyway, he called Dr. Shenton's office on Tuesday and they had a cancellation so we were able to get Jacob in on Wednesday. We talked to him on Wednesday and he had another cancellation for surgery and with this type of injury he didn't want to wait so the surgery was done on Thursday.
I really felt like we were being watched over. Jacob did not tear the ACL. The ACL actually pulled a bit of bone away from where it attaches. When they went in for the surgery, they anchored the ACL down with stitches through some holes they drilled through the bone. They also repaired the meniscus.
So Jacob right now is reclining on the couch playing video games with his friend Mat. He is not in much pain, we are just giving him ibuprofen every now and again.
He sure was a nervous nelly when we got to the surgical center. He started shaking so they tried to warm him up and handed him the tv remote. After surgery he just couldn't stay awake so we had a late night getting home.

Alan decide that he wanted to make an apple press. He found out that to press apples you must first crush or grind them. So he got a meat grinder. He still needs to tweak the apple press a little but his press did work. The Apple juice is mm mm good! He is amazing!

|The other day Skyler told me that he wouldn't be wearing anything that had a 3 on the tag any more, because he's 4 now. So we put away the 3T clothes and got out the 4T clothes. He is loving his "new" wardrobe and likes choosing his own outfits. This is today's pick. Still a little big if you ask me, but he's happy.|
