 Today was the day for Travis to have all four of his Wisdom teeth pulled.He was very courageous and relieved that it is over and done.Now he is counting down the days to leave on April 22 for Utah and his new adventure as a Missionary.I thought this would be a good page in the Family journal to remember his final days at are some facts about wisdom teeth,
They are generally thought to be called wisdom teeth because they appear so late—much later than the other teeth, at an age where people are presumably "wiser" than as a child, when the other teeth erupt. The English wisdom tooth is derived from Latin dens sapientiae.

I made meatloaf,macaroni and cheese and chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting,
hoping he remembers the comfort food and not the "WISDOM"


  1. Is this a second son going out? He is so handsome! I was just told by a dentist that mine are all still in there..I'm not going to do anything about it either, just keep an eye on them. So where has he been called to? You must be an awfully proud mom, I know I would be! Have a great conf. weekend and come say hi :D

  2. I know people who have had their wisdom teeth removed and are nowhere NEAR wise...but Travis has wisdom written all over him.

    Hope he doesn't suffer too much pain; your comfort food sounds like just the thing for recovery. And I hope his last days with the family are happy, peaceful, and full of wisdom.

  3. My Sweet Friend~Sounds like you are treasuring every last moment with Travis as I would be too.A very handsome young Man, Bless him.

    I Love comfort food, Simply the best.

    I wish you well and a Happy Easter! ~Enjoy Kim

  4. Happy Easter to your family and good luck to your son.

  5. Ouch!!! I know that is beyond painful. Thank goodness for comfort food..eheh.

    I am sooo excited for Travis and of course, I'm feeling his pain. All my wisdom teeth are gone, been gone for a while and I can honestly say I do not miss them at.all. LOL

    Happy Easter, shnuckum(LOL) and enjoy your Gen. Conf. weekend, too.
