The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth

This past Friday night after we got home from Sam's b-ball game he made up his mind he was ready for his wiggly tooth to come out and have a visit from the tooth fairy! Keep in mind this was his very first loose tooth!! The tooth had gotten very loose over the last week and I kept telling him every day to just let me pull it on out. Well he still didnt want me to pull it but he sat in the recliner with me and let me wiggle it back and forth until it FINALLY came out, took about 30 minutes. Bless his little heart he was so nervous!
You can tell that by the look on his face when you see the pics below. He saw the blood and that really scared him... "oh no mom im bleeding"!! Once it was out and he calmed down he was SO excited!! He said "mom i'm growing up".... um yes honey you are and its breaking my heart!!
So after all the excitement he writes the tooth fairy a little note and off to bed we go.... until we get the tooth under the extra pillow in his bed and he is laying all the way on the other side of the bed, i mean the very edge.... scared to death of the tooth fairy coming in his room! I tryed to talk to him about it but he was not having it! So we ended up putting it on a pillow outside of his bedroom door in the floor.... when he awoke to $3 from the tooth fairy the look on his face was priceless! not to mention we had snow outside too!!(pics to come)
What memories! I think he looks too stinkin cute with that snaggled tooth grin but just another milestone of growing up..... wish i could just slow it down just a little! and now the other tooth beside it is ever so slightly loose, so he has been singin all i want for christmas is my two front teeth=)

just right after i wiggled that tooth on out of there!
he looks like im really hurting him, bless his heart
he was SO scared, just not knowing what to expect!
me trying to love on him and tell him it was gonna be ok

What fun, what fun. Thomas can't wait to pull his tooth. Still not quite loose enough. He told me last week his friend Sam pulled a tooth. Isn't that sweet. So glad they are friends. Blessings
