A Little Bahama Christmas and a toothless girl.

THANK YOU MOM & POP!

Davids parents went to the Bahama's recently and surprised us with a package in the mail today! (okay a couple days ago, it took me a bit to get this posted) It was a little like Christmas. The kids love getting packages, okay so their mom and dad do too. Its tough to be away from family as the holidays get closer. So this little box of sunshine and memories of family are sweet encouragement for our souls. We go up to Oregon every other year - this is an "other" year and it makes it even harder.



The kids were thrilled with their new duds, of course the plastic packing poppers were a huge hit! The boys have worn their hats every day since they arrived! Please notice the Bahama's Starbucks mug.....and refer to this post, specifically #6. I was THRILLED! I know, crazy, but I was. Made my day. Oh and the rum cake? FABULOUS! THANK YOU! Can't wait to see you in a couple weeks!

And the other news in this house......Liv has one less tooth. She finally lost her front tooth that has been loose for MONTHS! Yes, MONTHS! It was loose way back in Oregon, it was loose at the begining of the school year, I finally had enough and pulled its hanging little self. She didn't even know I'd pulled it. How cute is she?!


Sorry this is so dark, forgot to put the flash on. Its such a cute picture though.

You can e-mail me your dark picture and I can "fix it up" for you... that is a cute smile she has. Did the tooth fairy come?

Oohhh....the Starbucks mug! Love it!

Cutie baby girl with missing teeth, but when the big teeth start coming in, they really start looking grown up. So sad!!

Yeah Olivia! What an exciting moment! Rachel has yet to loose her first too and the day it happens I am sure I will be boasting with joy as well :)

Cute! You are so brave - dangling teeth really creep me out. Damon will have to be the official tooth-puller when we get to that stage.
