I'm in the Auction Vortex. Our event is tomorrow, can not wait til it's over, just to start it all up again... 3 sick kids and 1 sick mom. A commerical was shot at our house this week. Have bills piled up to be paid. Yup, can't wait til Saturday morning. Let's hope the "Green Acre Gala" is a huge success for our school. Then maybe I'll have time to capture a few fun things for my blogity.

"Mom, when do I get to lose one?"
I have had to answer this question for 3 long years. Alexandra lost her first tooth when she was 4. Ainsley, 2 at the time, thought it was the coolest thing ever. She reeeeally wanted to lose a tooth. Bad. So much so, she has been trying to wiggle her teeth loose.
So, I'm wondering, she lost her top tooth first. I thought it was supposed to be the bottom tooth first. Who knows, who cares!! Ainsley lost her first tooth!!! Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray!
She did not put it under her pillow last night b/c she wanted to take it to school and ballet. Tooth Fairy City tonight...
Ainsley wanted to relay this message to the blogasphere.
"Ainsley's first tooth. It's very exciting for her. And she has her own tooth fairy pillow. And she's 5. And she has a best friend at school that she plays with all the time. No, 2. No, 3 best friends."

Anderson went to a birthday party at a ranch. So we got him ready for the occasion. He was sooo cute. Ever since our dear friend Becky brought these pants into our house, Anderson has wanted to wear them. When he was smaller, I'd let him wear them around the house b/c he insisted on wearing them. This was his first occasion where they actually fit.
