What's New With The Ball Babies

It's been awhile since this busy momma has posted any goings on around here.  Not much has happened but I guess what has happened should be documented even if I am the only one who writes and reads it. Hah.  

So get ready for some plain old, hum drum, normal activities that encompass our plain old lives! 

This good looking kid has a mouthful of trouble.  *sigh*
He's missing 6 permanent teeth and this brings a whole set of problems to his little old mouth.  
First line of business:  get braces on those chompers.  
Second line of business:  move his jaw forward so the little baby teeth that are still hanging on by a thread, can have less wear and tear on them.
Third line of business:  Well, right now we're still on the second line.  Flippers, implants, etc. will have to come later.  
Another *sigh*.

Pretty cute still, huh? 

This picture is minus the robotic arms that the ortho used to bring the lower jaw forward. Oy.

A milkshake always makes things feel better.  Especially one from the Big Bun.  Creamy deliciousness.  I told myself I couldn't have one until I get braces!

Something else that's new:  
We have a 17 year old in the house.  A silly, sweet, sunny, second daughter who livens our lives and makes us smile on a daily basis.  
In the words of Kourtni, 

Chowing down for some birthday grub at Carino's.
We left fat and happy!

Even though Alyssa was busy being a college student and couldn't join us in person, I wore her amazing scarf she made for me so she could be in the picture in spirit. Isn't it adorable?  Can't believe she has my genes in her somewhere...

Something else that's new:  
We went to Utah for Spring Break.  
"Hey, that's not new!",
 you might be saying,
 "You've bored us with your Spring Break posts for the past couple of years!"
To which I reply, 
"But the kids have all gotten gigantic! That's new!"
Weak sauce.
Oh, well!

See what I mean about gigantic?  It takes two teen agers to hold Bryton!

But only one Payton to hold him.  

Looks of awe and amazement at the birthday cake before them!

Grandma's house filled with cousins is THE BEST!

My little buddy!
And all my "new" wrinkles!  Joy.

Hadley taking after her talented mother!

My mother stranded on the side of the road with a huge spike lodged in her tire.  Yikes.  Thank goodness for the promptness of the Utah Department of Transportation!

That's it for part one.  
Stay tuned for more plain old ordinary happenings in our life.
