Calling the TOOF FARY

It's out!
Kayla let me take a good yank at that loose tooth and it finally came out. As you can tell from the picture she was extremely excited! It's bittersweet for me. It is just another sign that my "baby" is growing up. It seems not that long ago that Ryan lost his first tooth.
Kayla went ahead and put her tooth in an envelope for the "toof fary". I hope she remembers to come tonight. She has a record of forgetting our household!

Redding Family

Most of the Redding side of my family got together a few weeks ago and we decided to have a big family picture taken. I meant to post these a while ago! Just click on the picture to see it bigger. Have a great rest of the week!

Ryan and Miss Jo-Jo

Ryan was such a big help this weekend when we watched our niece Alyssa Jo. He kept her busy when she was fussy. He did ask for a break from helping me out and agreed that a baby in our house would not be in his best interest! Miss Jo Jo is getting so big! I can't believe that she is already nearly 6 months old! She looks just like a Cupie doll - I wish I had a better picture of her tuft of hair that sticks up on the top of her head!

Apple Festival

Another Apple Festival has come and gone. I am sorry I'm not posting a picture of me in my pioneer garb! I spent Saturday morning selling pretzels for my old sorority. We could not have asked for better weather! Ryan got to eat his favorite Apple Burgers and Kayla had fun making pioneer crafts. I got to see a few people from back home (Wells County) and we had a nice visit with Mom and Dad. Hope you can come visit Kendallville the first full weekend in October next year! Have a great week!!!! :) Jules

Ear Update

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers! I just wanted to update you on my ear. The most excellent news is that my hearing has returned to nearly normal. I am so blessed! Hearing impairment is awful! I have a new respect for anyone who has hearing loss.
I went to an inner ear specialist in Fort Wayne last week and my lingering nerve damage to the tongue still is there. There really is nothing to do but sit and wait. Sensory nerves (which I damaged with the alcohol) are more sensitive and take longer to heal than motor nerves. It may take up to 6 months to heal. My tongue still tingles constantly, but I am used to it. All food tastes like cardboard on the right side of my mouth, but I still eat!
Life is good. I am attaching a picture to this post of two of my favorite things in the world!!!!
