An angel, a cast, & our clean craft room

Tuesday we went to Brigham City to see the Angel Moroni placed on the top of the temple.

I have never been to one of these so when my friend said it was at noon I was worried that getting there 10 minutes to 12 would be cutting it close. Not to worry though. I'm not sure if angels normally take this long to get placed, or if the rain factored in, but in any case, by the time we left 2.5 hours later, the angel was still suspended a few feet above it's final resting spot. We did get to actually see the angel though which didn't appear for an hour and a half or so. I'm so glad I got to go with Sydney and Talmage. We really are so lucky to live so close to so many beautiful temples. Growing up in Kansas, the closest temple to us was 8 hours away in Denver.

Wednesday Talmage got cast #4 on.
He still has legs despite the way this picture looks:) This picture was taken after they brought him back from the recovery room. He usually wakes up about an hour after the surgery, but this time he slept for over 3 hours. The days leading up to the casting he had talked about getting a green cast, but in the final moments before he was wheeled away into the OR he asked for a blue cast. He was a little loopy at that point due to the anesthesia meds so I asked him if he was sure about the blue. The nurse came up with a great solution to cover all the bases, a blue & green cast.

Yesterday was the first time I wished we had stayed over night at the hospital because Talmage had some really bad stomach pains for many hours after we returned home. Sometimes the anesthesia has that affect on him, but this time it was worse than before. He was finally able to throw up a little and he was completely exhausted and fell to sleep for the rest of the night.

I had to document the way the craft room looked the other day because it almost never looks this way. Usually there are scraps of paper strewn all over the floor and general mayhem has taken over. My attempt at organized chaos often turns out to be just chaos.

I have the hardest time getting rid of Sydney & Talmage's artistic endeavors so I love having their artwork up for them to see that I am proud of their creations.
