We've had a lot of talk about teeth here in our house lately. Lilly decided a couple of months ago that she either wants to be a dentist or hygienist when she grows up and loves to talk about it to everyone. She has a mask, glove, and some of the rubber attachments from her last trip to the dentist and loves to play dentist with Mamie. She has also had a tooth (her first loose tooth) flopping around in her mouth for over a week that we have been DYING to pull out, but she has been guarding like it was her life. Last week was Mamie's first trip to have her teeth cleaned. Mamie was very excited. I had to work, so Jon took them both and I ran over for a few minutes to make sure she was doing OK and take a few pictures. She was a very happy little patient.
Reading a book and waiting...

Mamie (and Ellie, her little build-a-bear puppy) sitting in the chair like such a big girl

She looks so little in that chair.


She lost her tooth! Jon pulled it while I was running an errand tonight, so I missed all the excitement. She is so proud and excited about the tooth fairy's visit.

My big girl lost her first tooth!

bowling party!!!

We had a combined birthday party for the girls again this year since their birthdays are just a month apart. They both wanted to have a Scooby Doo party and they wanted it at the bowling alley, so it was pretty easy--except for the fact that we planned it on the weekend of the huge snow storm. We had to postpone it a couple weeks, but it finally worked out. It actually snowed again on the morning that it was rescheduled, and I got a call from the man at the bowling alley asking me if I had looked outside yet and laughing about the irony of it. I think we would have had it if we had to ski there--I wasn't going to freeze the cake a second time :) Anyway, we all had fun and the snow didn't keep anyone away. I wish I had gotten a group shot--I didn't get a single picture of all the kids together.

The delicious and adorable cake my talented friend Elisabeth made.
(Great photography, I know. They had the craziest little spotlights all over the ceiling and I couldn't get it to not make a shadow when I was taking the picture.)

The birthday girls--5 and 3

Mamie and Ty waiting for the balls to come out

Waiting as patiently as a 5 year old can...


Mamie blew her candles out the second the song started.
Did I mention how good (and GIGANTIC) that cake was? And that my pants from last spring don't button?
(thank you excessive amount of girl scout cookies, birthday cake, and krispy kremes...maybe scooby doo could solve that "mystery".)
