the Tooth Fairy is Coming Tonight!

I didn't lose my first tooth until a few months after my 7th birthday.  A few days ago, Peacock announced that she had a lose tooth ... at first I didn't believe her and I thought she was just trying to be big like her older sister.  Sure enough it was wiggly!

This morning she was really bothered by that wiggling tooth in her mouth and she started telling me that she wanted her dad to pull her tooth.  I wasn't really buying it because I thought we'd get down to the dental office, there'd be lots of drama, and we'd go home with a wiggly tooth still in her mouth.

At lunch, she was chewing on her fingers (she's also in the process of growing 3-4 new molars) and still complaining about the wiggly tooth.  I think she just had too much going on her in her little mouth and she really wanted to get rid of one problem.  After lunch we hopped in the car and went to see the dentist.

There were a few tears, but she never chickened out.  The deed was done and she is now awaiting her first visit from the Tooth Fairy!  Exciting times for my girl!!

My Ghost & Ghouls

Our family enjoyed a great Halloween night of trick-or-treating, socializing, and yummy food!!  The kids all knew exactly (well, sorta) what they wanted to dress-up as for the festivities.

Penguin talked about being Hermione Granger for over a month.  She found a cape (from when I was a kid) at my mom's house, borrowed my tie, used my old jr. high orchestra skirt, & colored/decorated her own wand ... made from a chopstick. :)  She made a perfect Hermione!

Peacock told me all month that she wanted to be a fairy.  I didn't stress over her costume because I figured we had enough girly-fairy dress-up things around the house to make a great fairy costume, but at the 11th hour, she informed me that she wanted to be Princess Tiana again this year.

Turkey saw this fireman costume at Costco and his heart was set from that moment on.  If you stop by my house, you might find him still dressed as a fireman!

The line-up:

The above photo made me think of the following photo ... oh! how they've changed in 3 short years!!  (And they won't let me choose their costumes anymore ... it was fun while it lasted!)
