Tooth troubles

Kye has had a loose tooth the past few weeks. He refused to let me pull it. Last night as we went to bed, it was barely hanging on. Then at 3:30 we were awakened by Kye crying and telling us he wasn't going to get his tooth fairy money because he had swallowed his tooth. This was his first tooth he'd lost. You can imagine what a big deal it was especially at 3:30 in the morning.
We quickly wrote a letter to the Tooth Fairy and he cried himself back to sleep. He was all smiles and so happy this morning to find that the Tooth Fairy accepted our note without the missing tooth! Maybe next time he'll let me pull it!

More Pics

We really don't do family photos that often but my friend Jen is leaving me and moving to Wyoming. (I'm so sad!) She is an amazing photographer so we had her take our pictures at the beach. I love the pictures, despite the fact that it happened to be a rare cold and windy day!

'Tis the Season

I have been a bit of a Grinch this's hard to get into the season in 70 degree weather! So we just barely got our tree. The kids had a blast decorating and it really got us all in the Christmas mood.

Time is Slipping By....

It hit me the other day that we are already half way through the first year of Lola's life! How sad! I can't believe how time flies. I told Todd that I'm never as happy as when I have a baby. He said that worries him because most of our lives it will just be the 2 of us. I just wish I could slow time down!

Give Thanks

Our family had such a wonderful Thanksgiving. Ashton helped Grandma Linda with the cooking.

We exchanged Christmas gifts since we will not be seeing the Welkers for Christmas and ,oh boy, did we get spoiled! Aunt Kristi gave Ashton a Nintendo DS and Kye new games for his DS. They both love getting spoiled by Aunt Kristi!

Grandma and Grandpa gave us a Wii and I don't think Kye stopped playing it the whole time we were there. We'll definitely have to set some limitations !

The kids LOVE Granny Helen!

We all felt grateful that Addi finally came home after her open-heart surgery. She is the sweetest little baby. She is so patient and hardly ever cries despite all she has been through. She is truly a blessing and you feel close to heaven just being near her.

The kids had so much fun. They all cried when we left. They love being at Grandma and Grandpa's house. We're so grateful for them and just look at those cute new clothes from Grandma. Can I say spoiled just one more time?
