Jake's Surgery

Just wanted to let everyone know that Jake is doing great! He hurt his hand at work in November, and had surgery scheduled for December 19. It was such a loooong day-I really felt bad for Jake because we arrived at the surgical center at 12:30 pm and waited and waited and waited some more, to the point that Jaxon got cranky so we decided to come home for a while and wait to get a phone call that Jake was out of surgery (I had been told it would be about 2 to 2 1/2 hrs.) I figured it was getting close to the time that he would be out of surgery, so I decided to go back to the center and see what was going on. The nurse had told me he was still in pre-op-he had been waiting for almost 3 hours! I knew he was so hungry and thirsty, but he was going into surgery any time so once again Jaxon and I left Jake and came back again 2 more hours later and this time I found out he was in surgery! So I left again and ran some errands and came back AGAIN! He was in recovery and awake, but I wasn't allowed in the recovery room, so Jaxon and I went into a waiting room and waited till we, along with other families went to meet their family members. By the time we left it was a little after 7 pm!! We are just both glad that it's all over with, he's been doing really well! Lucky for him the nurse told him that he couldn't be on diaper/tub duty or dish duty for at least 10 days! Even through it all Jake has never complained about the pain before surgery, or after! He wants to unwrap the bandage to look at his stitches, but he knows for one I can't handle things like that and he isn't supposed to take it off!! Thanks for all your support and prayers! The worst part about all this is that I've had the flu since last night but I am feeling better too, and Jaxon is the happiest/funniest baby! I'm so grateful to stay home with him and enjoy every minute with just the two of us! Of course, we love when daddy comes home to play too! Hope all is well for your families.....MERRY CHRISTMAS

Christmas Party

This is a pic of Jaxon at our ward Christmas party! He LOVES candy canes! He sucks on them so loudly-you know that he is enjoying his treats when he sucks and chomps!! His hands and shirt always get very sticky!

Disneyland Fun

This is what Cinderella's Castle usually looks like at night....

This is Cinderella's Castle decorated for Christmas! It was sooo fun to watch the fireworks and parades and then watch the castle turn white and glittery!

When we went, Disneyland was in transition of Thanksgiving and Christmas-this tree was beautiful, and HUGE! It even "snowed" everyone was sooo excited (except us from Utah, cause we see it all the time!) The "snow" was just soap suds blowing everywhere!

Who doesn't love the tea cups?!

"It's a Small World" opened for the first time in 2 years! Jake and I went on our honeymoon to Disneyland, and the ride closed shortly after we went there, until now! Everything was re-done the line for it was CRAZY! We got to go on it right before the park closed because "Soaring Over California" shut down right before our party was to go on the ride, so they gave our party a pass that gets you on any ride of your choice-so we went on "Small World" again, and got to go right up to the front of the line and get right on the ride! It was so fun!

More Fun in Disneyland

Walking around California Adventures, Brooklyn wanted to walk every where, she wanted be right next to Jaxon in his stroller-she is a very good babysitter, always on the lookout for baby Jaxon!

Jaxon enjoying one of many suckers, thanks to Grandma!!

Me and my sister on Space Mountain-after this ride I did not feel good for a little while, of course who would after going on a roller coaster in the dark!!
