Busy Days and Good Friends!

Like most of you this time of year keeps me busy with my kid's activities. Between both having basketball practices and games and Saylor also having dance and girl scouts, I feel like I am never home.

We are going to the Titans game tomorrow. It will be Saylor's first game! She's pretty excited. I am too! I love going to the games and we have awesome seats. After the game Christian and I along with Mandy will be spending the night in Nashville. Christian will be having his fourth surgery on Monday. We have to be at Baptist at 5:30 so we decided to just stay overnight. Saylor will be coming back with my parents and then Mom and Dad will come back down Monday morning. Christian is nervous but won't say much about it. It's a difficult surgery and involves several hours of work and putting bone in his gum line. It's all very confusing and I couldn't really explain it. We love his oral surgeon and know he will do great!

Tonight Christian's friend Casey Myers, who has been through the same surgeries as Christian,
had him a little surprise party at Boyd after all the boys finished high school basketball practice. Pretty much the whole high school team was there along with some of his other friends from Boyd. They got him a bunch of goodies to keep him occupied during his recovery and a few boys got him a Hastings gift card. They also had food and some gorgeous cupcakes that Gina Tilton made.

Casey's mom, Tracey Pickens, did great getting it all together and surprising Christian. I am amazed at how great they all are to Christian. There are some really great people associated with Boyd and I am so glad Christian is there.

Mandy made some pics so I will try and post some later.

Please keep Christian in your prayers and I will update this when we get home Tuesday.
