Getting in the Spirit

We've had our Christmas decorations up for a few days now and the girls are starting to get into the spirit. They're even wearing their Christmas pajamas. The other night they posed for some pictures by the Christmas tree.

About time....

......for a post, that is! I know it's been two weeks and I've been meaning to post pictures, but I'm just now getting around to it. Here's a glimpse of what's been going on the past two weeks. Silly-willies wearing one bath robe.

A New Smile


FINALLY! The loose tooth came out! Madeline had a loose tooth for the past few weeks. Yesterday when I picked her up from school, she told me it was wiggling more. She was even a little whiny about it and kept saying it was hurting. During dinner, she was whiny about it, as well. She wouldn't let us touch it, but she wouldn't stop talking about it either. After her bath, she was getting ready to brush her teeth and was starting to get anxious again. Upon closer inspection, I could see that it was really hanging on by a thread of gum tissue. I convinced her to look in the mirror. She tried pulling it out herself, but just couldn't quite get her nerve up. Finally, she asked me to pull it out. And in a blink...it was out. She was SOOOO excited and said it didn't even hurt or tickle. And she was even more excited this morning when she found the dollar that that Tooth Fairy left under her pillow.

A Letter To Jesus

Lydia was doodling on a piece of paper this morning and asked me for an envelope. When I asked her why she needed an envelope, she said she had a letter for Jesus. She asked me to write Jesus on the envelope. And of course, that was followed by a trip to the mailbox in her PJs to mail her letter.
Here's a picture of Madeline doing her homework last night. For now, she is excited about homework.


Last night's assignment: practice writing Gg five times. I think she's doing great!
