New Hair Cuts for the Girls!

Meg and I got new hair cuts this week! New changes are always fun! Here's my hair before I got it cut. (My hair was braided that day, so it looks kinda wavy.)

Here's Meg and I after our hair cuts! Meg cut new bangs, and I cut 15 inches off! It was a crazy decision, and I don't know why I decided to! Well actually, this girl at school cut her hair, and it looks SO cute, and I wanted mine like hers. It kinda looks like hers, hers is a tiny bit longer. I donated my hair to Locks of Love. I don't know if they'll be able to use it because it dyed, but it's worth the try.

Jessica's Knee Surgery

I'm sorry, the pictures are out of order! I had surgery about a week and a half ago on my knee. I tore my miniscus playing in my first volleyball tournament of the season. (about month and a half ago)
Here is the picture of my knee, the day after surgery. Very swollen, with no bruises.. yet. My leg is orange, because of some stuff they rubbed on my leg. They made 2 incisions and repaired my miniscus and shaved something else inside there. My doctor's initials (B.T.) were on the middle of my knee cap before the surgery.
Here is the brace I will be wearing for the next several weeks. I have to wear it for 6-8 weeks, letting me bend my knee up to 90 degrees. Letting it bend past 90 degrees would tear the repair, or stitching, in my miniscus. I had to wear that stocking for the first week on both legs to prevent blood clots.

Here is my nasty picture of the IV. Just kidding! I looked away while she put it in, but became very curious of what the nurse was doing. I liked watching it.

Here's a picture of me with my stuffed animal horse. Since I'm a "child", I got a stuffed animal. I knew right away that it was a horse, but my mom called it a giraffe, and the doctor, a moose. The last thing I remember about being awake was the doctor making a racist comment about my stuffed animal. I laughed, and then was out. Waking up, the first thing I asked for was my horse, then my mom. She was offended.
I'm now doing much better, walking with only a limp. The brace annoys me, and gets in the way, but I'm learning to ignore it. The swelling has gone down drastically the past 2 days. I've started bending it, and got to 80 degrees today! I'll keep it updated, though I don't know if there'll be more to update! For now, volleyball season is over for me!

New Year's Eve

We loved having Abby (holding Matt & Candice's baby Zach) & Paxton visit us from Texas. We had fun playing games... and let me just say.... Tiebreaker. My ego suffers from losing at Scrabble, so I guess I'll have to study my Scrabble dictionary now and pray I'll get a J, Q, X, or Z.

We had a (not so) surprise late birthday party for my mom. The big 60.
