Tooth Fairy

As Allie was drinking her hot chocolate yesterday morning...her FIRST tooth FELL OUT!!  It feels like she's been waiting forever!!  She's been wiggling it and talking about it.  We were all ecstatic!
Allie put her tooth in her tooth pillow that has been hanging on her closet door for about 4 years now.  The binky fairy gave it to her when she hung her binky.  She left her tooth right by her fairy door and went to bed...too excited to sleep!

Sometime during the night, the tooth fairy made her very first visit to the Hammerick house.  She left Allie a special container to keep her first tooth in.  She also wrote a tiny little letter to Allie and gave her a receipt for her first tooth...and $10!  It won't be long before she picks up more and more of Allie's teeth...she already has another wiggly one!

Happy New Year!

Another new year's eve celebrated at home with our traditional green punch and 12 grapes...reflecting on the past year and making wishes for the new year.  Allie said all her grapes were the next 12 months should be filled with good, happy moments.  I ate all of Ayden's grapes...his were all sweet as well.  This was the first year Allie could write in her New Year's book by herself...Ayden was able to make the "A" in his name...I did the rest.

We wrote our wishes on our balloons...but I FORGOT to take a photo of them (boo). Ayden's wish is to learn to pedal a tricycle this upcoming year.  Allie's wish is to achieve her back walkover.  Todd's wish is to obtain his commercial pilot's license and my wish is to have many more adventures and experiences together as a family.

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy new year...and for all our and your wishes to come true.
