On Monday, January 19th, Emma lost her second tooth! She noticed it was loose a week prior, and it had gradually gotten looser and looser. Just like her first tooth, she pulled it out by herself and brought it to us. No tears or fussing! The tooth fairy brought her $5 and brought her sister $1 for helping her through the night. As you can see from the pictures, she likes to show everyone she lost another tooth and practice her whistling through it!
Today was Brandie's birthday, so she got a special wakeup this morning from the girls and me. She woke up to presents and a homemade chocolate cake that she loves! We are also going to celebrate this weekend with a day at the spa along with brunch and a cooking demonstration at Brennan's downtown. Happy birthday to the best wife, mother, and friend I could have ever hoped for!
We brought in the New Year by relaxing, watching football, and eating the traditional cabbage and black eye peas. My sister and her youngest boy came over and we ate dinner together at the table and were entertained by the conversation between Francisco and Abby.
We took down all of our Christmas decorations today and the girls were a big help even though they wished they could of stayed up longer. I told Ray I might be getting a 2nd tree for next year to showcase the girls' handmade Christmas decorations... we will see how that goes...
The girls are asking to see their friends... so that is my indicator they are ready to get back to their normal routine of school, dance, and busy weeks. I have enjoyed this time with them and will be hugging them and loving on them extra over the next three days.
We look forward to what this New Year has to bring. We pray for Health, Happiness and Prosperity.
