LoTs Of ChAnGeS HeRe!


SOMETHING IS MISSING...



Molly was playing with my brother's dog, who bumped her just right and knocked out the left tooth (looking at her) on Saturday night. The right tooth dangled all day yesterday and finally right before dinner, we sat together and while cheering her on, she tried to pull it out, turned it around backwards, laughed, cried, and then when she tried ONE MORE TIME and it was out! She was so happy. The Tooth Fairy has been very busy and is now broke! Molly wrote the Tooth Fairy a letter each night. The first one asking if the dog can have a treat for helping. The second letter asking if her sister Lolo could get something too, since she is so SAD that she isn't loosing any teeth yet. Somehow this sweetness is working out in their favor and not the Tooth Fairies who is now handing out extra money for sweetness!
Molly's Art
Just before our trip, Molly was awarded with an Art Award. She was very happy, excited and proud. It was nice to have an event that was all about just her. Aw- look at the smile with teeth!
Dels Rolls
While we were in Florida, little Dels learned how to roll both directions. She now plays on the floor rolling all over the place. I am not sure that I am ready for these days yet. I still enjoy setting her down and having her be in the same spot when I turn back around. Yikes, I better get my running shoes ready!
Annie Loves Her Music
Since our Florida Trip, Annie LOVES to listen to music. She loves her headphones, bobs her head to the music, swings her hips. She's a dancin girl!

Since we are talking about dance, guess what we have coming up this weekend?
Here's a preview...


Lolo started soccer too!
I just don't have a picture of her yet. She has been asking and asking. So I told her that when she is 5 she can play. On the morning of her Bday (Feb) the first thing she asks me...Can she play 5 year old soccer now? Well the signups are for fall and spring, it was kinda midseason. So I found an indoor rec dept. soccer class that she could join. So now she gets to run around and be a shark or a minnow and it is all hers. She's happy.
Thank you to everyone for the well wishes and kind words about my Grandpa. The funeral was very nice. It was great to see people that I have always heard about, but never knew...all the older Great Aunt's and Uncle's and such. My sister and her family came back in again from Missouri, so more play time with my nephew- who is so stinkin cute. I will have to share some pics of him soon too. My brother bought a new car, well a new car to him, it is a used VW Passat. He has been talking about a new car for over a year. He has been shopping, saving, comparing prices and finally went shopping with my Dad to find THE car. He brought it home last Tuesday. While we were at the funeral on Friday, somebody smashed his rear window. Aw...c'mon~ can you believe that? They think it might have been related to Senior Skip day...but how inconsiderate. Needless to say he was pretty bummed. On happier news, my Uncle from Virginia drove up, so we were able to spend some time with him. My Mom hosted a bunch of family Saturday night and it was a good time. There are promises of family reunions for this summer and I am told that I am helping to plan it. I guess because we always have such awesome parties (tootin my horn here) that I am now a party plannin girl! Sounds fun to me.
I told ya lots has changed here, lots going on. In the next few weeks, we have a dance recital, talent show, bridal shower, wedding, soccer, and of course all the end of year stuff too. Oh and birthday parties. Oh and our Anniversary. When's Mother's Day? There's always something right...that's what makes life interesting. Have a great Monday!

I love them all. Your girls are gems. And I'm so glad to be reading updates on them again.

Welcome back to the web. (Though I admire your commitment to "unplug".)

K-girl has her dance recital coming up also. (Though not until Memorial Day weekend.)

I love your daughter's dance costumes. My K-girl, her first recital, doesn't have a Tu-Tu. I'm still a bit disgruntled. :0)

Have a great Monday.

Wow - lots going on with all the kids! Love that toothless smile!

KATE said...

LOVE the sweet pictures of your girls!! It's so hard when the baby starts hitting those milestones. It's so fun, but at the same time. Yikes. Brooke is a lunatic, but still isn't crawling. Part of me wants her to & part of me really really doesn't!
Love the dance pics! we do dance around here too, we've hit competition season. It's crazy, but so fun to see what they've been working so hard on!!

Amy said...

Glad to see the whole family - these are sweet photos. I am glad you are all well. Here's to a busy but happy spring!

Whenever I had loose teeth, my parents would make corn on the cob. It was perfect for pulling teeth out, and I got to eat lots of butter at the same time.

Kendra said...

What great pictures. Your kiddos are adorable.

♡ Great pictures! So cute!

Becky said...

Awww, so cute...every last one!
And what a nice tooth fairy y'all have living around those parts, giving out money for sweetness!

That's a total bummer on the smashed window in your brother's car. Grrrr. Makes me so mad that people don't respect other people's property anymore, you know?

You sound super busy, woman...with all that coming up. But if anyone is up to the task, it's you!

Great pictures. Love the missing teeth. Sorry about your grandpa. It is nice for them (much better accomodations), but hard for us as we miss them for a time.

So many wonderful events and milestones . . .

"I am not sure that I am ready for these days yet." Me too . . . J's only moments away from crawling.

Sounds like a busy time for your family. Very cute pictures of your girls.

Sorry about the funeral, but it is nice to see family that you don't see very much.

Have a great day!!

Kathryn said...

Wow! You've had a busy week. Sounds like you need some alone time, huh? ;)
Man, your girls are just gorgeous!

Courtney said...

Your girls are too cute. Glad you wrote something for all the changes going on. Good luck in the coming weeks with all that you have going on.

Steph said...

Wow, sounds like my life!
I haven't been around a lot lately either, and really don't have a huge desire to be on the computer blogging. I have tons of stuff going on, but can't seem to find anything to blog about. Silly.
Maybe when it starts getting cold again the blogging will up.
Happy Spring/Summer!!!

Steph said...

Oh, and sorry to hear about your grandpa. :(

Stacie said...

my daughter's tooth was knocked out last summer, it has YET to come in even though all the ones around it have. It is so cute!

MQ is CONVINCED she's about to lose a tooth. she's been convinced for about 6 months. nothing is moving. ;)

Stacie said...
