Teeth, Toes, Turkey and Traveling

We had a great Thanksgiving dinner at my parents house yesterday. Good food and good company are always a fun combination. I didn't take any pictures though. While at my parents house, Randy was walking down the stairs while skyping with his sister and he totally slipped and fell down the stairs and hit his foot on the wall at the bottom. he was limping the rest of the night, so I knew something was wrong for sure. Randy is pretty tough and doesn't ever complain about physical ailments. I bet it was pretty funny to Paige, who got a front seat to see the whole thing on skype.

Randy also went out at 11:00 PM to start our black Friday shopping that started at midnight. He has the shopping down to a science. It is seriously so funny to hear the stories he tells. And the way he gets the items he wants is hilarious. Just ask him to tell you about black Friday tampons and you won't regret it. He got home from Wal-Mart with a whole bunch of stuff at about 2:45am and then decided to stay up till 5am to hit The Home Depot and sears. He is a WONDERFUL husband to brave the crowds and cold (about 8 degrees outside). THANK YOU RANDY!!! I feel much more prepared for Christmas now.

In other news, Tyler lost his first tooth this morning! He will be seven years old in less than a month. He was feeling pretty left out as his friends and cousins were all losing their teeth and he wasn't. The dentist told us it was unusual for him to lose the side front tooth first. I pulled it out for him because he kept complaining about how much it hurt and it was so loose I said "just let me tug on it once and if it doesn't come out, I won't do it again" So I pulled once and it came out. He got mad at me because he said it hurt and then I asked him "Is your tooth still there?" and he said "yeah." then I said "It can't be there, because it's in my hand. He was really surprised. It bled a lot though and I felt bad for him. I'm not sure what the going rate is for teeth these days. It has been a while since the tooth fairy has visited me, and I used to get 25cents for my teeth. I figure she should bring a dollar? I guess we will see tonight if I'm right.

We went to my little brother Ben's basketball game today at UVU. We attended the first game, but I forgot my camera that night. Ben is in the starting lineup and he plays really well; especially since it is his first year in college.

He fits in better with the college crowd than he did with his high school team. at 6'10" he still stands apart, but not as much as he used to.

I couldn't really get good pictures of him on the court. luckily he got to sit on the bench some. They were wasting the other team and the coach put in the second string.

Tyler "high fiving" the wolverine mascot.
Jake informed me at the last game that this was not, however a wolverine. He said that wolverine has metal coming out of his hands and that this was clearly a "bear". Obviously, this was my mistake. :)

The back of Grandma, Lily, and Papa's heads. Awesome.

This is Jacob's favorite spot of course.

My sister Michelle and her baby Sarah

Lily wasn't thrilled about taking this picture.

This is what Randy's foot/toe look like today. We're pretty sure he broke that middle toe. poor Randy. I hope it feels better soon.

I think that pretty much covers everything for the last two days. Happy Thanksgiving!

I feel kind of bad for laughing now, but seriously the fall was hilarious!

Heather said...

hahaha. I love you Paige.

Grandpa and Grandma B said...

That looks very painful, and the toe is crooked. Glad it wasn't worse! I am very jealous of that Grandma holding Jake, I miss holding that cuddly boy!

Ouch! That toe looks so painful! I'm glad we could go to the game with ya'll and watch the BYU/Utah game too.
Good times . . .

EWE!!! Poor Randy. That looks so painful I want to cry! Way to go on the shopping! I'd love all your black friday and cyber monday stories sometime :) I've never really done either, although I thought about you as I made some purchases today. I love how it looks like Lily was trying to do eye liner or something. Way cute! hee hee
