Corbin lost his first tooth.
It was loose soI tried to yank it but no luck.
Corbin then worked on it and pulled it himself.
He was pretty proud.
When he saw this picture he said he liked it his little tooth showing in the bag.
The tooth right next to his gap is also loose so it won't be long for tooth #2.

I had a birthday two weeks ago.
We will not discuss how old I am but I will say it came as a shock when I took a survey and had to jump up to another age bracket for my answer. Ouch!
On their birthdays we have all their presents piled up so they did the same for me.
The kids had also planned a party for me.
There was a version of musical chairs, several rounds of pin the tail and a treasure hunt
(with no clues I was at a small disadvantage to those who did the hiding.)
It may have not been the kind of party I would have planned for myself,
I was touched they put so much work into it.

On our second snow day of the year, the kids went out to make a snowman
but ended up with a snow horse instead.
Wouldn't Grandpa be so proud!
Corbin also pulled out his sled for a little fun.
Makayla made do without a sled:
These kids crack me up!

Makayla decided to participate in Reflections this year.
This is an annual PTA program to encourage students throughout the state to explore the arts.
Makayla made a collage:
On the night of the program, each participant was called up to receive a ribbon and a certificate.
We waited (ready with the camera) for the whole program and Makayla was never called up.
I knew something was wrong.
At the end, I went up to ask what had happened.
I felt totally normal until I tried to speak and then I choked up and couldn't get the words out.
"My daughter wasn't called up," I tried to stammer.
Tears started running down my cheeks.
I was so embarrassed
and so was Makayla.
I have no idea why I started crying.
Makayla could not have cared less. She kept saying, "Mom, it's fine!"
Turns out Makayla was awarded a Certificate of Merit (one step above participation) for her project and the woman who made the certificates overlooked it.
She got her certificate at school the following week.
Stuff happens but it is no reason to cry about it.
Reminder to myself!

The day after the kids were raking the leaves, we woke up to 4 inches of snow.
The kids were thrilled and couldn't wait to go out.
It was Sunday though (and stake conference so church was early)
so they had to wait until nearly afternoon.
While I was making lunch, they headed out and whipped up some
snowmen of their own.
|Nor sure what is up with his hat! :)|
Makayla asked for a picture of the front of her snowman
but I declined stating I was not allowed to leave the porch.
Next time she will have to remember to build it facing the house. :)
