Miss C's Pretty Smile

Chel's braces were finally put on Friday afternoon! Whew! She has 4 on top and 4 on the bottom. (Pink because it's Mom's fav color, and UT Orange for Dad! Isn't she sweet?) Unfortunately, Saturday afternoon a bracket on the bottom came loose, which was a bummer since she was trying very hard to be extra careful. It really only bothered her at night so I had to try to get that darn WAX to STAY PUT. Finally it did, and she got some rest.

Tomorrow I have to take her in to get it fixed. Hopefully they can get us in early. Other than that, she's doing really well with the whole deal. I don't think she felt any pain because I felt it all!! Seriously. I was a wreck before, during, and after, and somehow I made sure I remembered to give her some motrin before her appointment. They had stressed that it would take about 3 hours and she was out in less than an hour. My baby is a great patient! And I'm a nervous wreck.

I finally used the crock pot we bought months ago. I have to say my stew was mighty tasty, I sure do love my veggies, but we agreed that the oven does just as good a job (if not better per The Big Guy) in less time. Oh well, we'll try chili next time I think. If all else fails I'll use it to dye yarn.

I'm now "tinking" back my first Mystery KAL Beret, I made some wacky mistakes and thought I could live with them until I took a closer look today and saw that I had dropped a stitch as well! I almost ripped the whole thing out but stayed patient and worked back to that stitch. The other boo-boo I made will stay since it's in the back and not as noticable, I just flubbed a row I think and I'm too tired to tink back probably 5 more rows. I couldn't get pictures today because it was a gloomy, cloudy day. Maybe tomorrow.....

I love this pattern!! If you haven't started it, it's not too late!!!

My baby will need braces next year. He's already beginning to panic. I didn't know they came in pretty colors. Maybe he'll like that. :-)

Jimmy liked getting all the different colors each month..He'd do it to the for Christmas...Jan he did blue/white etc. Poor kid got them on the day before Thanksgiving...full mouth braces too. He couldn't eat nothing...also because he's picky. He learned to eat yogurt, ice cream, mashed potatoes. Give Chelsea our love and hugs! Can't forget you too!:)

My daughter needs braces, too, and she just wants to get it over with.

I love using the crock pot! That stew looks warm and tasty!
