My 100th Post

In honor of my 100th post I thought that I would change things up a bit. So what do you think?

We have had a busy week. Brett's cousin is in town from Texas. Here are some cute pictures of the kids.

Mid-July Already!!

Where has the summer gone? I can't believe that it is almost time to start school again. Trent will be in the 1st grade come Aug 3rd. They actually start school on a Thursday this year. Isn't that weird. I remember starting school one time on a Tursday in the 8th grade. (Don't ask why I remember that) We really haven't done that much this summer. I feel bad about that. Mom and I took the kids to Dixieland Funpark on Saturday. It was a spur at the moment thing so I didn't have my camera. They had so much fun. Trent and I rode the go carts and I let him in the bumper boats all by himself. He was so nervous and excited. He is growing up so fast. Does anyone remember the ride out at Six Flags that was a spider or octopus. It would spin with individual carts at the end of the tentacles. I convinced Trent to ride this with me. It's been several (at least 8 years) since I rode anything. At the end of the ride I was soo sick. I never felt so nauseous in my life. My stomach is still messed up and I have the worst headache. But Trent had fun. That was his first "big ride" Now only if I could teach him to ride his bike.......

Wisdom Teeth

Sorry, guys. My internet has been down at home and we finally got it fixed.

Iknow techincally you are suppose to have them removed before they come out of the gum, but he never did and they are now causing problems. When he got there they informed him that the wouldn't be put to sleep. So we paid extra for the laughing gas.

When to Remove Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth cause more problems than any other tooth in the mouth. They will either partially break the gum tissue and grow in crooked or remain underneath the gum. In nine out of ten people, at least one tooth remains underneath the gum - referred to as an impacted tooth, causing symptoms of future problems of varying degrees. "Even if you have no symptoms now, headaches, earaches, pain in the face, neck, throat and upper and lower teeth can occur if impacted wisdom teeth are not removed."

When is the Best Time to Have my Wisdom Teeth Removed?

It is now recommended by specialists that impacted wisdom teeth be removed between the ages of 14 and 22 years whether they are causing problems or not. Surgery is technically easier and patients recover much more quickly when they are younger. What is a relatively minor operation at 20 can become quite difficult in patients over 40. Also the risk of complications increases with age, and the healing process is slower. (Of course it is........ that's what I needed.)

Ps....He did fine. (Notice the sunvisor that Trent made Brett for father's day)

Happy 4th!!!

I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend. My office was gracious to give us Monday and Tuesday off of this week. It has been really enjoyable. A little shopping, A little baseball, a little poker and a lot of driving around in MY NEW CAR!! That's right. I bought a 2006 Impala SS. It is really nice. I really missed having a car and was tired of driving a truck. After a total of 7 hours wheeling and dealing we finally made a deal with the Silverado King. Brett asked the sales man if we bought the car would he stop playing those terrible commercials.
Here are some pictures of our trip to the Braves game. Trent got to play a little ball too.
