First the right and then the left.

So my girl is growing up! She has lost not one but her TWO front teeth. The first one happened to be on Christmas day, right during our Christmas morning breakfast. Pleasant :) It was really loose on Christmas Eve and I really tried to coax her to pull it out that night. Wouldn't that be sweet to have the Tooth Fairy and Santa come in one night? Nope, she didn't buy that!
The 2nd one was exactly one month later. She ate some whoppers at church and it somehow dislodged it out of its comfy spot. It was practically hanging there until she finally got the guts to wiggle it out, 2 hours later! I've never heard a kid whine & cry over a little loose tooth. Do all kids do that, or just our little princess? :) In the end she was glad to get it out and now is sporting one toothless grin!

"Tea time"

Little A has been pestering bugging me to have a friend over for awhile now, so I finally gave in to her demand request. :) An inversion had hit the town for a good couple weeks, and boy was it gloomy, cold, and not any fun to go outside and play. We picked up Little A and her friend right from preschool to come back and get ready for a "tea" party! In this case, water. They both were so excited to get dressed up in cute princess dresses, while M&M and I got the table & food ready for them. M&M was so motherly, leading them to the table and serving them up some princess food. M&M couldn't serve them long because she had to run and catch her bus (hence, no pics of her).

When they first sat down I heard Little A say "let's pretend this is our princess restaurant!". It was funny to listen to what they talked about and see all that they ate. Man, those girls sure loaded up their plates. I don't think they ate 1/2 of what was on them, but they had fun loading them up. The best thing they ate, turkey pepperoni! Who knew little girls love turkey pepperoni! For dessert, bunny graham crackers with frosting in the middle. I was glad I finally gave in to Little A. For not a lot of work, it meant a lot to her. Thanks Teresa for letting her friend come over!

Tuckered out!

I think he had a little too much jumping.

Cupcake anyone?

As gifts to friends I decided to give cupcakes! Who doesn't love cupcakes? I even baked them on National Cupcake Day, but just getting to posting them now. I baked most the day and came out with 4 fab flavors.
*Orange Chocolate Chip with Chocolate buttercream, with white chocolate drizzle
*Carrot with white chocolate cream cheese frosting
*Coconut with Vanilla buttercream & topped with more coconut
*Chocolate with Chocolate buttercream, filled with mint chocolate ganache, topped with crushed candy cane
I baked over 100 cupcakes and loved doing every bit of it. The girls helped frost and sprinkle them too. I hope all recipients enjoyed them as much as I loved baking them!

Our little dancer.

In December M&M had a dance recital and of course she did great! She is getting to be quite the dancer these days. I'll post her dance once I find time to do so :)

Girls, and now a boy!

I was sitting at the computer when the girls really started laughing. I turned around and this is what I saw. They think it's hilarious to put bows/flowers in CJ's hair. At least it blue, right?!? This will be just the beginning.

I think a month sabbatical is good enough, don't you? :) The holidays were a little crazy for us and so now we are back in action.
A couple of cute pics of M&M and Little A sporting some sweet make-up applied only by M&M. I think a true make-up artist is budding!
