Basketball games :)

The girls continue to have fun playing basketball! I love going to watch them! :) I think it's safe to say that Jax is getting a little tired of always going, but he's hanging in there. He often just colors during the games.



















My parents came to the games a couple of weekends ago - they helped keep Jax busy. Ha!

Celebrating 11 Years!

Justin and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary this year! Wow! I still can't believe it has been 11 years! 

Since our anniversary was on a Saturday that was full of basketball games, we celebrated the night before. We went out for supper, went to Cirque de Solei and then went out for drinks after the show. It was a fun night.

We were up bright and early on our anniversary for an 8:00 basketball game! :)





Gizmo

This was my sweet puppy on the January 5th. He went in for his big dental cleaning ... and left with 13 fewer teeth. 
Talk about total sadness. One of my favorite things about him is his cute underbite and teeth. He now has no more front teeth. His jaw bone in the front had some deterioration and all of the front teeth were ready to fall out.

It took a few days, but he is back to his normal self and eating with his back teeth seems to be no problem.

A week after his teeth appt, he got sick. He seems to be better from that now too!

He definitely needed a bath after being sick - the kids couldn't wait to watch bath time!

Silly kid!

I sure love this kid! He makes me laugh so hard!

Right now my favorite thing to do with him at night is snapchat my sisters with nighttime pictures. I never know what face he is going to make until the camera flashes, and I laugh so hard at him every time. I wish I had screen shot all of his poses over the last few days.




I guess I haven't done a follow up since Jaxon's sinus surgery (from December 1). Jaxon had a great recovery from surgery! By the time we got home from the hospital that day, he was ready to play. I was bribing him to rest! :) He had bloody noses for several days after the surgery, but once those ended, everything was great! 

He had his surgery on a Thursday ... and the following Thursday he ended up with food poisoning. I got to school to pick him up and he was so excited to see me. By the time I had his bags ready to go, he was on the floor and super pale. Thank goodness that I always keep bags in the car since he gets car sick ... he was throwing up before we got home ... and then threw up for 2 hours straight. We couldn't get him to stop. The worst was that it was coming out of his nose, which was burning so bad for him. I ended up calling the doctor to make sure we weren't risking infection since we were just a week out of surgery. They felt that he would be okay. After 6 hours of vomiting, he was much better. A number of other kids from his daycare/preschool also had the same thing at the same time. He only eats school lunch about 6-10 times a month, and this happened to be one of them. The hot lunch is brought in from an outside place (similar to how the public schools here do it). 

Then, the following Thursday after that (I started to hate Thursdays), I got a call that was a bit panicky at noon from our director at preschool. Jax had just finished lunch, went to his nap mat calmly, and all of a sudden blood starting pouring out of his mouth and then his nose. The teachers had gotten it to stop, but they said it was a significant amount of blood, and it scared them. Since it stopped, I told them I was going to hang up, call Justin and the doctor and get right back to them. Justin happened to be near preschool, so he went right there. I called and talked to the nurse, and they wanted to see him. Our ENT was in surgery, but he ended up making it to the appointment to check Jaxon out. It turns out that even thought it looked like a big deal, it wasn't. Whew! He had blood vessel exposed in his nose due to dryness, and that caused the large amount of blood. He just loves to keep us on our toes!! Three Thursdays in a row ... I wasn't sure I wanted the next one to come! Ha! He has been fine though ... we have been so happy with the success of his surgery! We are so thankful for his wonderful doctor!

Jaxon's Teeth!

A couple of weeks before Christmas, we realized Jax had "shark teeth." 
Gross. Something about teeth grosses me out.

The baby teeth were quite wiggly, and they fell out about two weeks after Christmas - two days apart.


Jaxon's excitement with the first tooth was so cute! He came running down stairs yelling "GUYS! It fell out!"


He was so excited for the tooth fairy to come! :)

On the day that Jax lost his first tooth, Gizmo had 13 pulled (more on that later) ... 14 teeth in one day at the Overmans!

Jax was rewarded with money ... Gizmo was rewarded with pain meds. :(

The second tooth was a tad trickier though --- it fell out while he was on the rug. Oops! Never a dull moment! :)

One more Christmas :)

On New Years Day we celebrated Christmas with my dad's sister and her family. They live in SF, so we didn't have to go too far.









Whew! We made it through 6 Christmases!

Another Christmas Celebration!

On New Years Eve we celebrated Christmas with Justin's parents, his brother's family and his grandparents.

Emmett was excited to open his gift ...

... and "wear" it!

The 5 kids!

(Yes, we do make Jax dress for "winter" when we leave the house, but the kid hates pants, so he strips down to the next layer before we are hardly in the door!)

More olives!













The girls got hot pad looms, so we spent some time making those!

Jordyn did a "raffle" and Grandma Marcia won!

Another fun day!
