Wisdom Teeth

I got my wisdom teeth out today. It was kind of spur of the moment. My right upper tooth has been trying to break through the gums and has been causing serious pain. I've been taking my spare percocet I had in the house, and if you know me, you know I HATE taking pain killers. So, I went to the oral surgeon to get it checked out, yes, it was my wisdom tooth, and yes, I should schedule an appt. to get all three taken out (I didn't have a fourth). So, I go to schedule the appt, and he's only in the office every 2 weeks. So, either get them out today or Nov. 5th. So I called Brandon to see if he could work from home today, and being the perfect awesome hubby he is, he worked it out and I got my teeth pulled.

I have to say, it was pretty easy. About as painful as getting a cavity filled. Brandon tried telling me I'd be knocked out for at least a few days, but I got really lucky. They only had to break up one tooth to get it out (the smell of burning tooth is gross), and the other two took the surgeon literally 60 seconds a piece. I was in there for an hour from start to finish. Just laughing gas and novacaine. I drove myself there and back. I'm in minimal pain tonight, and I feel really blessed that this didn't knock me out. It's Lexi's birthday in three days, and I didn't want to be in bed all weekend. Actually, I'm pretty peeved that I'm not allowed to exercise tomorrow.

Anyway, I've been pretty bored tonight cuz it's the 2nd night in a row without a hubbie (meetings), and so I took a picture of myself. I guess I felt I had to document the whole wisdom tooth thing. THEN I remembered that I suck at getting my picture taken. This was me still not knowing what face to make when the timer went off. HA!
And I got my hair cut. Just about 5 inches or so.
And how cute is this girl?! Lexi never has wet hair in the morning, so I never scrunch it. But we took a shower together and afterward I wanted to see just how much natural curl my little girl has.
How cute is she?

Brandon was able to go fly fishing with our friend Ryan on Saturday and loved it. If you know Brandon, you know he loves to fish, and he'd never been fly fishing before.

I love this picture. I know it's blurry, but it's awesome. Brandon needed to bring sunglasses, something that he doesn't own. So we found these that were part of a costume a year ago, and he wore those. Gotta love those aviators...
Trying to eat the fish he caught...
Here's Ryan with something he caught too. Thanks Ryan for taking Hubby fishing! Heaven knows I'll never go with him...

This is what Brandon does when he's on the phone for anything longer than a minute. He paces. It's so funny to watch him pace back and forth while talking on the phone. And since he was called as bishop, he has a lot more phone calls. So, if you call him, just picture him doing this. A lot.

It's the little things like this that make me enjoy being married to Brandon. The things that only I know. Well, I guess now you know too...
We've been babysitting little Paytyn a couple times a week, and it's been so fun. You should have seen Lexi when she found out we'd be watching another baby. The look on her face was priceless. She was so excited! It was like, "You mean, we get to play with another cute baby? Awesome!"
You will also see that Laney is already a little ham. Whenever I pull out the camera, she gives a big smile. Just like her big sister...
It really is so cute to see Lexi being a responsible little babysitter and to have fun with another sweet little girl.
