Pearly Whites, or Yellows...

Check out the chompers on these boys! My sister and I suffered through braces, so I guess it's a fairly safe bet that our boys will do the same.

Cousins O-Bo and P-Park came to spend the night for a little birthday celebration for WB. (Yes, I CAN bake a cake, the boy wanted an ice cream cake!!) I can't believe he's eight! Where does the time go?

I love you little crooked-tooth boy!

Five days post-op and I'm just now starting to believe that maybe I won't miss that old gall bladder after all. I must admit, I underestimated the impact the surgery would have on my life. I was totally thinking I'd be back at work in two days. Needless to say, I didn't make that, but I am starting to feel more like my old self.
************************************************************************* last tidbit...we're on Step 7....we're less than two months from travel. (By my calculations anyway!!) WooHoo!!!!!

Can I get a cake like that for my birthday! Sorry to hear about your surgery. Hope you to improve quickly. Make sure you are suffiently pampered.

I'm sorry you were down for the count! You should've told us - we would have brought you our best take-out! :) Glad you're feeling better, and congrats on the Step 7! I hope we move along with your smooth schedule when it's our turn!

Happy Post Thanksgiving!

You are getting so close to Dori. Keeping fingers crossed for January travel.

I hope you are feeling better. That's not a fun surgery.

Also, I haven't even had the chance to look at cameras too much yet but I know I will get a Canon just have to decide which model I like the best.

Happy #8 WB. What cute kiddos.

And...Happy Step #7. Only 5 more to go until it's Vietnam time. Hoping and praying for a quick travel date for you.

Hope you continue to feel better.

I didn't know you were having surgery! I hope you're feeling better soon and that they didn't fool you with that whole 'we'll make one incision through your belly button to hide the scar' routine. I had my gall bladder out five weeks after Natalie was born and THAT was the incision that hurt the most! Feel better - and congrats on Step 7!

I love the picture of the boys. They look like brothers. I hope you fully recover from your surgery very soon. At least it happened now and not right before travel. Here's hoping you get travel approval for your Christmas gift. One can hope, right?

Laura said...

Oooh, gallbladder! I had that one shortly after my first was born and thought it was worse than labor and recovery. Hope you are back to normal and on your way to Dori very soon!

Scott and Leslie said...

Glad to hear that you are feeling better! Surgery is no fun, no matter what is being removed! yuck!

Owen says that he LOVES the birthday cake! Apparently, all of the sprinkles make it taste better:)).

We're looking forward to hearing that you are on step 12 and are headed to Can Tho!!
