The tooth fairy will be coming tonight....

Kalli finally worked out another one of her teeth tonight. She has said for the last couple of days that it was loose because another little girl had hit it but I guess tonight she'd had enough so she grabbed her rag and did her tug. I tend to let her just do her own thing with pulling out her teeth - one because she is a total trouper and will yank those suckers out if it means an extra dollar and two because it just gives me the heebie jeebies to try to pull one out. I just figure if it's loose enough to come out, it will with Kalli pulling it. If it's not ready, it won't come out - NO Biggie!

So here's the shot I had to get of Kalli so she could have a picture of herself without the tooth.

And here's the cutest thing she just had to leave for the tooth fairy. Apparently she's gotten real smart when it comes to buttering up the tooth fairy so she even made her a note with a little gift. The note says: "Dear Toothfary, I lost a tooth and you can have THIS to remeber me. Hope you like it. Love, Kalli" Her gift to the tooth fairy was her new melted bead design star she had made this afternoon.

Now, the tooth fairy will really be broke if Dylan's teeth ever start falling out. Kalli's been on a roll and has made a killing off of her loose teeth. You got to love it though because she gets so excited to get it under her pillow each night and it's the first thing she checks when she wakes up. Ahhh, sweet childhood. :)

Do you ever...

just think things just don't go right? Feel like everything is a disorganized, heaping mess? Wish that there were more hours in a day? Well I'm having that day today. Nothing has gone right. I have every intention of bringing organization and order into my home, but nope - not today - that thought is gone right out the window. There's too much to do and not nearly enough time to do it. Maybe tomorrow it'll be better. I'll get things right, things will get done, and I can go to bed knowing that I'm all set for the next day. Then again, that's probably just crazy talk.

Here's some pictures especially for Uncle Jimmy. He's been asking me for basketball pictures of the kids and I just have not gotten around to it. Finally, I can cross this off the list.

On the bright side of today, it was WARM! Like actually above the teens, up in the 60s! Hopefully this warm trend stays around because we really are ready to be done with all this cold stuff we've been having. I'll just be keeping my fingers crossed!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Okay so not quite yet but I figured hey - I might as well be ahead of something I post.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Not a whole lot going on. It's been cold, cold, cold here. Work stress. The kids have been busy with all their basketball games & practices so they are definitely getting their exercise. Kalli is quite the ball player. Last Saturday she made 10 of the 14 points that her team had. She is a pretty good little shooter. Dylan is gradually understanding the game but needs the occasional help understanding how to "get open" & not guard when your team has the ball. Oh well - he tries really hard. Plus he's really a good little ball stealer. It's funny to see a group of boys all together & not know who has the ball & then see Dylan come from the pack with the ball in his hands.
