We Tried Everything!

Here's a couple videos of the girls being silly. Thought you might enjoy them. I have decided that God must think that we have a great sense of humor!!:) This past weekend was a busy one, but amongst all our plans God threw in a nice size wrench. Saturday night at our church's couples dinner and a movie night, my hearing aid kept squealing. I took it out during the movie. Afterwards, when the lights came back on, I realized that the part at the end of my hearing aid was missing. I looked all over, but could not find it. Then I got Jeremy and a few friends to look in my ear and make sure that it wasn't still in there. They all quickly assured me that there was nothing in my ear. By the time we arrived home though, I knew something didn't feel right. Jeremy got out the flashlight, and lo and behold there it was! We tried everything to get that piece of plastic out of my ear! We even resorted to the vacuum cleaner! Eventually, well after midnight, we gave up and decided I would just go the ENT on Monday and get them to take it out. By Sunday morning, however, my ear was hurting pretty badly. Begrudgingly, I went to the emergency room, and waited two hours for them to pull it out of my ear. Their first few attempts did not work. They even sent me to the pediatric ER to find smaller instruments. Just when they were about to try the vacuum (I didn't tell them we had already tried that), they were able to pull it loose. My ear is still a bit sore, but I think I have escaped virtually unscathed. Of course, our adventure was the joke of the day at church. :) Well, today was an absolutely beautiful day here. We can definitely tell that spring is on it's way! I'm off to get a few things done before the kids go to bed. Love you all, and thank you to God Almighty for reminding me to laugh at myself once in awhile!
