Todd still had his baby hair which included a long curl on the back of his head.  Dad begged for him to get a hair cut as the shaggy unevenness looked ao sloppy. Today we did it.  Todd was a champ and didn't cry or scream.  He wiggled a bit but overall did fantastic for a first haircut!



Laurel celebrated her birthday with three friends at Boing and Chick-fil-A. G.G. and Mom came along to watch.  It's hard to believe it's been 11 years since she was born.  Laurel is very responsible. She loves to cook and often makes breakfast for the family on the weekends. She is still competitive and athletic. She loves to sing.  Laurel loves baby Todd. His first name of the kids that he learned to say was Laurel :"Wo wo". She is so kind and gentle with him.  I love Laurel and can't wait to see what the coming year holds for her.

I cut my foot on the facade of the oven drawer. The bleeding lasted all morning so we headed to the urgent care after church.  About an hour and ten stitches later, I hobled out of the office with a surgery shoe and instructions to keep it clean and dry.  The stitches will come out in 10 days. Ouch!

Brant took a leap of faith yesterday and bore his testimony in fast and testimony meeting yesterday. He has practiced at family home evening for a while. He and Mom reviewed the FHE lesson on the pew and then he decided to go for it.  He said sitting up there and waiting his turn was the scariest part.  The microphone was a little high because he didn't adjust it for himself, but he did a beautiful job.  Dad and Laney were shocked to see him on the stand.  They didn't see him leave the pew to head up there.  Everyone was so proud of him.  Even a few friends told him , "Good job!"
