Lincoln's Toe

On Saturday Lincoln dropped a can of kidney beans on his toe. It immediately turned blue. He cried and cried. Avalee and I were not home but came home to him still crying. We sent her to make him happy. In a matter of minutes, she was able to calm him down and he stopped crying.

On Sunday, we had a friend that is a nurse look at his toe. She told us that if it got worse we were going to have to pop it and get the pressure out. Well it got worse and today Lincoln could barely walk. So tonite, she brought over a local to numb the toe before we drilled. There was so much pressure in his toe that one poke of a needle caused it to blow. It immediately went down. We could then see that his toenail is going to fall off in the next couple of days. He really did it good. The picture below is after all the blood came out. This picture doesn't do the blood justice.

All I want is my front teeth!

In three weeks, Avalee lost her front teeth and now doesn't has a big hole. One of her teeth came out when she was sitting in Primary. She used the string on her dress and it popped right out. I asked her what she did. She told me that Mason climbed under the chair and picked it up and then she just held it until Primary was over.

Special Olympics

The Special Olympics came to Idaho this year. This is a floor hockey game and India had just won. We should have gone to more events but the kids were sick.


A couple of weeks ago we went to Engineering Day at Boise State. They had an hour long class on block play. The kids had a great time building with all types of blocks.
