Grillz R Us

Yesterday Brian decided that he couldn't wait till Christmas to get me my present. So we went to this friend of Brians, who owns a shop called "Grillz R Us" (kind of catchy), that fitted me for my very own grill!! Can you believe it? Brian suggested that we go with the "D BOY" logo on it because he wanted everyone to know that I belonged to "D BOY" and besides that is how Wyatt would say it considering he pronounces the "Th" sound like "D". So it was a family decision. It will be two weeks before I get it. Here is a picture the Dentist gave me to show my friends and fam, until the real one comes in ;)

Just kidding. In all honesty I went into get fitted for a crown to cover my infamous root canal. The dentist put on this silver (it might be aluminum; it should have been gold for the price I paid for it) temporary cap. So I feel like I'm this undiscovered HIP HOP artist with this great bling in my mouth. All this hip hop inspiration is coming to me as we speak. Look out Missy Elliot, theres a new queen in town ;) Celestial Flava is going to be bigger than Elvis. Celestial Flava is the best Hip Hop name I could think of. I'm kind of scared that all this money making inspiration might leave when they put the real crown in.... Stay tuned to find out if my CD gets released.

I am Grateful

This time of the year helps us all to reflect the things that we are thankful for. Just thinking about this some thoughts came to my head of the things that are blessings in my life.

  • My Husband - After almost 8 years of marriage he can still make me laugh and feel beautiful. I'm just so lucky.
  • My Little Men - one thing about boys is they have lots of energy, but also lots of love. They teach me everyday what it means to love unconditionally. I'm so glad I don't get to miss a moment with them.
  • My Parents - always a constant source of support and love.
  • My In-laws - ha! I know. I am grateful to them for raising a wonderful son.
  • My Sister - Hero, friend, cheerleader, teacher, therapist ;) , rock to lean on. She is amazing (4 children how could you not be).
  • My Friends - "Those who walk into your life, when the rest of the world walks out", I have been blessed to have great friends who accept me and my oddities, and love me for who I am. Your the best!!
  • Mine and my Families health - People we know just lost their 9 year old son to cancer. Its hit Brian and I pretty hard and we find ourselves giving hugs to our little guys and each other more.
  • My Testimony - Going through this life without this incredible gospel would be scary.
  • Brian's Job - Food and Shelter are great things ;)

We hope everyone has a safe and happy thanksgiving!!!

Possible job after residency

So we're going to go over the the practice that I might be going into after the residency. It's a Saturday, but the doctor already gave me a key to the office. We're pretty excited but we still need to run the numbers and all that jazz. I'll let you know what we think of it. It's a brand new, stand alone building (which is something I've always wanted), 7 ops and still more room to grow.

Primay Presentation and Mack Daddy Rory

So this year has been exciting because there has been a lot of "firsts" for Rory. He gave his first talk in Primary in February, he's given the theme a couple of times(memorized and all), he's even had a couple of crushes and he's not even 5 (well get to that later). However all of his practice with the primary microphone paled drastically to the mighty podium microphone in the chapel.

He was excited when he got his part and memorized immediatly. However come practice time, he didn't want a thing to do with practicing. When it came time to say his part in the microphone he wanted nothing to do with it, or he would make me go up there with him and feed him the lines. Anyways so he never really got to say his part in practice.

During all these practice sessions though Rory, the little mack daddy that he is (his father is so proud considering he was the biggest mack dad), started to flirt and goof off with this adorable little blonde in the class ahead of him. They were hilarious together. I am kind of thinking that he was a little nervous to do his part in front of the new friend that he made. But Rory is funny like that he has so many crushes its hard to keep up with him. Mowlary (cute little blonde) is mentioned a lot more now along with Deborah who is a good 6 years older than him. Its just funny how his smile comes up when he sees them. I didn't think that girls would be something he would even think about at 4.

But I digress. So when the big day came we prepped Rory with bribes of 2 pieces of candy if he would go up there by himself and say his part. So we got to church and Brian's parents were there and my parents were there, including my dad (he's not a member) which was amazing for me to have him there. Not to mention the best distraction for Wyatt because we couldn't sit with him. But everything was so perfect all that needed to happen was for Rory to say his part. So the program began and all these sweet little soft spoken children got up there and made us all tear up with their cute voices. So we get to Rory and he looks up at Brian and I (who happen to be up on the stand with the rest of the kids because we teach 11 and 12 year olds) we give him the thumbs up and a gesture to remind him of the yummy candy later. So he goes up there and proceeds to YELL at the top of his lungs into the microphone his perfectly executed part. Everybody jumped about 2 inches in their seats and than there proceeded to be a ripple of laughter throughout the audience. I was part of that, couldn't contain myself. It was hilarious but he did what he promised to do. He said his part perfectly! He needed no help, and yes he got his 2 pieces of candy. I will never forget that day and maybe that's why Rory delivered it the way he did. It was the perfect ending to a perfect day. Were so proud of him!
