Tyson's dentist found a large mass of some kind growing on top of his 6-year molars. They didn't know what the mass was but felt it needed to come out. A fairly nervous Tyson (along with all the rest of us) went into the office to get the "mass" removed. As they put him to sleep, Aimee said he kept telling them that he has a really hard time going to sleep and sometimes it takes a long, long time for him to get to sleep....zzzzzzz!Poor little guy! This isn't the best way to get out of school for a couple of days. When he came out of the anesthesia, Aimee said he was really funny. He told her he was seeing double and then that he wanted to see her phone so he could play a game. On the way home, he asked when they were going to let him drive the car.It was a larger "mass" than they anticipated and we have to wait for 2 to 3 weeks to get the labs back on it. The next day his cheek was a little swollen, but he is doing great. Kids bounce back so fast. We love you Tys.

Lucy's First Major/Minor Ouchie!

Lucy and I went to Cameron's birthday party a little early to help out and she was showing her cousins how she can stand up all by herself (several times very successfully). Then, she crawled over to the stone entryway and stood up, arms out, talking and smiling all the time. Then, she sat down and when she tried to stand again, she foot caught on her dress and over she went right on her eye. Her first black eye! I felt so bad....but she hardly even wimpered. She is so proud of herself when she stands up and she is going to be walking any day now. Sorry Lucy, Lissa and would have to happen with me. DARN!

Can You Believe It! Cameron is Seven.

Our cute Cameron is SEVEN. How time flies. I remember when he was the darling, happy, puggy baby. And it was not so long ago. They grow up way too fast. Cameron wanted an "Angry Birds" party and Aimee, as usual, went all out. As a gathering activity they all colored pictures of "Angry Birds."

Then they made bird seed (trail mix) with all kinds of great snacks.

The cake was fabulous. Aimee is really creative and always comes up with great ideas for the kids cakes. This one was so cute with the angry birds and pigs.

Cameron could hardly wait to blow out the candles and make a wish as everyone sang "Happy Birthday" to him. Then it was cake and ice cream for everyone...He gots lots of great presents from all his friends.Including a red and a black angry bird family....

One of the games that the kids played was to crack the golden egg. Each had a yellow or orange balloon tied around their ankle and they went out in the yard and tried to pop balloons. Each of the kids also decorated their own, favorite angry bird helium balloon to take home. It was a wonderful party and everyone had a great time. HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAMERON!!!!!

New City Councilman

It is official. Trent was sworn in last night as a new city councilmember in Cedar Hills. The ceremony was short and sweet. Each one of the new members came forward and was sworn in.

Then it was photo-op time. Here are the new councilmembers. Gary Gygi, Jenny Rees, and Trent Augustus.Then a picture with the current council and the new members. This is the new council for Cedar Hills.Of course, it was hard to decide who Trent Augustus was. Is this Trent?

Or this?

Everyone had to try out Trent's new seat. Who do you think looks the most comfortable? Then, the part that the kids liked best...refreshments. And looking at the new Lego magazine. Hummmmm, I wonder if the council checked it out too as their first act of business.
