How freaking cute are my new pale yellow kitchen chairs?  I've been looking for new kitchen chairs for months.  My sister-in-law found them for me at a place in Farmington called "Bukoos".  Last time we went up she took us there and they were on sale for $16 dollars a chair.  Freak that's a good deal.  Glad I waited patiently!!  Now just need to find the right table.
Don't worry it's only a 108 degrees' outside (luckily we have air conditioning) but Keir insists on wearing his "monkey" suit from last year's Halloween.  A look on the bright side, it finally fits.  Whatever works for ya bud!

Keir had to have a picture taken of his hand.  (I thought that was cute!)
My Hand.  Finally becoming almost all better.  After one visit to physical therapy, look how much more striaght my pinky is.  Amazing isn't it?

Can you believe it?  2 years old.

Big Boy Keir!!
He was so excited for this cake.  Which by the way John made.  He has got some mad skills.  I was a little jeleaous because I like to do the cakes but because of my gimp hand I couldn't.
I wish this picture was focused more on his face.  Look at that excitement!
You almost got it blow just a little harder!
He didn't eat any of the cake.  Just the M&M's out of the dounut tires.
Keir and Nana.  Say "CHEESE."

1 week after the accident
3 weeks and 1 day after the accident stitches removed!!  Which hurt by the way.
Also 3 weeks and 1 day after the accident.

What happened was... after we had our beautiful family pics done our friends Adam and Nakole invited us over for dinner.  We were up in Utah county by the way.  After dinner the guys went outside to ride Adams new Rhino. (For those that don't know what a Rhino is, it's a fourwheeling devise.  Not an actual animal from the zoo, although that would of made for a killer story.) Anyways... John gave me a ride on it which was a blast.  Those things can climb.  Well John went to turn and let off the gas and we tipped over.  Well the smart girl I am decided to put my hand down (I mean I have been working out so I thought I was strong enough to do what?  Catch us?  Guess not.) and we slide a bit therefore ripping my hand to shreds.  I seriously thought they were going to have to amputate my hand.  It looked like dirty hamburger.  (You wouldn't think from the pictures.  I wish I had one of that night.) John thought my pinky was missing.  Thats because it was hanging there because 2 inches of my pinky nerve was ripped out.  John said there was a hole in my hand where he could see the tendents.  Ew gross.  I don't remember because I think I went into shock.  Then at the ER they had to clean it out after giving me a nice dose of heavy narcodics.  I really don't remember anything after that.  The next day I went into surgery to get it cleaned out and then had another surgery on thursday.  I was then released to go home on friday.  I am doing very well and I feel very blesed.  I just need some physical theropy to get my pinky, ring and middle fingers moving.  They are very stiff and sore from not moving them for so long and very numb but that might always be.  I would just like to thank all of our friends Especially Brennen for getting me to the hospital in one peice at the speed you were going, Shanny Adam and John for listening to me whine the whole way there and all my family for all of there prayers, love and support.  You know who you are!! Dr. Macarthur for saving my hand.  I'd like to especially thank John my amazing husband for EVERYTHING he does and did for me.  Inbetween hospital visits he was up all night taking care of our son Keir who was sick.  I don't know what I would of done with out you!       I love you babe!  

A sample of our new family pictures.  I stole them off our photographer, Maggie, blog cause I haven't seen them yet.  She does an amazing job.  She has done All of my pictures since my engagements she even came to take pictures at the hospital when I had Keir.  She's part of the family now.
Who loves ya babe?
