Margaret had a loose tooth and was complaining about it so we were waiting at the dr office and I asked if she wanted me to just pull it and she said yes. So I pulled it. And then it bled and bled and bled and she cried and cried and cried. She talked funny for 3 days afterward. But the tooth fairy came and left her some money and all is well.
Since we had her party early in the month, we just went out to eat on her actual birthday. Mexican, as always, was her choice but our favorite place was closed for a private party. So we went to a different place and I had hoped they did the sombrero/whipped cream thing, too...
OCaroline was asked to join the U of A Children's Choir and had a Christmas/winter concert in mid December.
And with the Little Prince.
This one did good for 3/4 of the show but needed to talk a little so daddy took her to the hall.
As part of the choir, she was able to join Opera Fayetteville in the performance of The Little Prince. It was a big commitment (3-6 hours of practice a day) and it took up her whole Christmas break. I was very proud of her for not complaining and sticking to it. She did great!Here she is with the "pilot".
I don't know how many 8 yr olds can say they have performed in an opera, but this one has!!
It's so fun having a baby at Christmas time.
Everything is new and exciting and special for them!
And overwhelming at times. Haha. These little cousins met for the first time. It was both of their first Christmas'.
First time on Santa's lap and no tears!
Margaret's birthday is a few days before Christmas which makes planning a party a challenge. Last year none of her friends could come. So this year her only request was that her whole class come to her party. I decided we'd have the party early in the month to try to avoid her friends being out of town. We went with a donut theme, because sprinkled donuts are her favorite thing! We had the party at 10 am on Saturday and told everyone to come in their pjs. It was a really fun time. And about 1/2 of her class plus about 8 other friends came so she was excited!
