Scared you there for a minute didn't I? Just kidding!!! Actually we are adding a new member to our family on August 2. Brittany is officially engaged to a nice young man named Jacob (Jake) Jensen. I know, me and Marc are much to young for this, but that is what happens when you start a family early too. We have plenty of time to plan and prepare which is good so it can be the best day of Brit's life. She met Jake up in Ogden through a group of Janessa and Ben's cousin. They hit it off from the very start. Jake is 25, just graduated with a degree in computer science, and served a mission to Argentina. He is the oldest of 5 boys. Poor Brittany adds 4 more brothers to her life and to top it off, another Trevor. She is so excited, so feel free to drop her a note (a link to her blog is on our blogging friends).

It was that time again. My hair had grown fairly long and it was time to cut it off and donate it to "locks for love." I had measured out the 10 inches required to donate and knew that it should be just below my shoulders. Or that is what was suppossed to happen until the girl didn't know how to cut a straight line and kept on trimming and fixing. I was starting to freak out that I was going to have a butch cut by the time she was done. Well she finally got it done, and I ended up losing the 10 to donation plus an extra 1-2 inches of hair I wasn't planning on. I guess I will have to live with it. Hopefully by the time Brit's wedding comes along it will be a better length for me.

So Friday I took Tye to get his wisdom teeth out. It was a long 4 day weekend for him, so I figured it would give him plenty of time to feel better before going back to school on Tuesday. The whole surgery only took about 20 minutes, but coming out of the anesthesia was another thing. They came to get me after he had been in post-op about 10 minutes, and they were having no luck getting him to wake up. I spent the better part of 30 minutes trying to get him awake and alert enough to get in the wheelchair and go home. ( If he wasn't going to wake up I was going to take a picture with the cell phone) Of course when he did wake up just barely, the first thing he asked for was the cell phone. He doesn't remember much, but he did sing to me and was a bit giggly. He wasn't going to be able to eat much, but he did want a slurpee on the way home. He also told me I was going the wrong way to get the slurpee, but I assured him I knew where I was going. Notice the red lips, and the cell phone in his hand while he was sleeping. So now there is no geting around it when Tye is acting stupid, I guess maybe he has an excuse.
