This morning Judie took Devon to have his tonsils and adenoids taken out. All week Judie has been searching Google and talking to friends who have had their tonsils out to better understand how to speed Devon’s recovery. He went into surgery about 9:00. They finally got home about 3:00 in the afternoon. Devon slept most of the remainder of the day.
While Judie accompanied Devon I took the rest of the kids to the dentist. They were surprised when the walked into the dental office to see Santa sitting in the waiting room handing out candy canes.
This evening Judie’s High School friend Lisa Craig and her husband Darren came over for dinner. They brought their nephew Tannon, his wife Cecily and their son Jacob who just moved to Caldwell. I cooked up some of my “Killer Teriyaki Chicken” and broccoli.
After dinner we gathered downstairs for a raucous game of Charades. The evening was FILLED with laughter. Lisa asked, “is your house always like this”. Judie and I responded, “Yep pretty much”.
This evening after I put the kids down I went over to Derek’s to work in his woodshop. This year I decided to try to make Judie’s ornament gift on Derek’s wood lathe. This was my first time turning a bigger project (usually I make pens). I was a little nervous to bring portions of the ornament to a thinner point fearing it might spin off on me. I finished about 2:00 in the morning. I think it turned out pretty nice for a first attempt. I want to try again next year. I hope Judie likes it.
