Ethan's surgery

Our baby had surgery today. He was under the knife for about 45 minutes. 

One of his testes hadn't descended into his scodum so he needed surgery to correct the problem. 

Anyways, surgery went about as good as it could have. Recovery Is going good also. Hopefully he will sleep through the night.:) 

Tomorrow might be a long day. 

Here's our cutie before the procedure,

Two weeks ago, my family plus grandpa and grandma, went up to Brainerd for a mini vacation. 

We had so much fun!! We didn't have to worry about cooking, cleaning or anything besides relaxing and enjoying each other. 

During the 3 days and 2 nights we were there we went to the water park at least 5 times. The first night we stayed in a kids suite which was awesome! 

We couldn't have left Brainerd without a trip to Nissawa. I love that place! 
This was in the kids suite

This was at the Plaid Festival


As we were enjoying family time little did we know everything that was going back at our house. It was a HUGE surprise. We knew Jim and Barb were getting some people together to maybe paint and clean the garage but they did so much more. We came home to a truly transformed house. What a HUGE blessing. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all who helped!   

Here is a glimpse of what they did:
The new corner bench and table
Here are 4 of 8 lockers they put in. One for all 8 of us
Here are the other 4
Heres more organization of the garage
The new bike racks

It sounded like God really had his hand over this. How everything came together. From people showing up to the furniture fitting perfectly. We are blessed.
