Avery helped Grandma Porterfield make this Barbie Cake for her Birthday. They had to use a bigger tip so that Avery could help...it made Barbie look a little hefty...but she was still beautiful! Avery got lot's of Barbie stuff, a Zu Zu Pet and a camera! She is very excited to get baptized soon! (Again...I am feeling older than dirt!)
Avery decided to have surgery on her lip. She said the kids at school always made fun of her! (Dang kids!!!!!!!!!!) We ended up taking her to a Plastic Surgeon and he referred us to a Cleft Pallet Specialty Team. We ended up finding out that Avery was going to have a Cleft Pallet that would have gone all the way up to her eye!!!!!!!!!!!!! We were so grateful that that didn't end up happening. On June 9th we took her up to Provo and they ended up cutting the inside of her mouth and connecting the mouth muscle (I guess it wasn't connected), and making a Z cut on the side of her mouth and cutting about a 1/2 inch out of her top lip.
Scary face... After Surgery.
She is doing great! She had hardly any pain and can eat great. The cut is healing wonderfully!
I can't believe he is 9! Ayden's Birthday was June 4th. Grandma Porterfield made him an R2D2 cake. All the family came over. Ayden received 2 sets of Lego's, pool toys, a hovercraft, and more Lego's! I am starting to feel really old!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have been married for 9 1/2 years now to Josh Macfarlane. My maiden name is Kristin Shumway. I have a son Ayden who is 8 years old, a daughter named Avery who is 7 years old, and a 1 yeard old boy named Camden! I have 2 crazy dogs and work at Dixie Regional Medical Center. I have worked there since I graduated from Dixie High School. I am now the Radiology Office Supervisor and am enjoying the new experiences that are taking me out of my comfort zone. I have one of the greatest families on earth. I am a non-practicing diabetic. After 15 years I still haven't quite come to terms with it. (Crazy huh!)
