Toothless Wonder

Guess who lost another tooth?
 
 
This makes three!

 
He woke up at 3:30 in the morning shouting that his tooth was out. We found the tooth near his pillow and got him cleaned up while I mentioned that although it was still dark out, it was indeed morning - we may have already missed the Tooth Fairy for this particular night - because I knew I didn't have a dollar, or any cash/coins, on me. (This tooth has been wiggling & jiggling for months; I don't think any of us thought it would ever come out.)
 
Narls said he hoped we did miss her because he really wanted his dad (who was in New York for a couple days on business) here when she came.

 
That made me smile.
Made Clay happy too.
Seriously, this kid.

RIP Pumpkin Pie

 
We had to put our sweet kitty down.
 
Just over a month after he had an emergency surgery for a blocked urinary tract, it came back stronger and faster than before. Just two weeks prior, we took him to the vet for a follow up of the first surgery and he was in excellent health with a urine test showing not even a single crystal.
 
And then fourteen days later, in a matter of hours, he went from purring and playing to howling and not being able to walk.
 
Because of how aggressive this particular ailment seemed to be for Pumpkin, our vet said we'd be dealing with a lifetime of this.  A kitty lifetime of sudden pain, blocked tracts, and stress & worry.
 
Our sweet boy didn't deserve that.
 
So with the four of us by his side, we said our goodbyes and put him down.
And good grief that was painful.
 
We only had him six months, but he made such an impact in our family!
We miss this kitty and it's just so damn sad.
RIP, little buddy.

Happy 5th Birthday, Princess

 
Emerson Grace is five years old.
Even typing that sentence blows my mind.
She is the perfect mix of sweet and sassy and of girly girl and tomboy.
She makes us laugh daily and she truly is the apple of my and her daddy's eyes.

 
To celebrate her birthday, we threw her a princess party here at home.
We decorated in the colors of teal & purple and asked her guests to wear princess dresses.

 
The tiny princesses got crowns, wands, bead necklaces, and hairbows for their goodie bags.

 
Dinner was first, and it was a simple pizza party with fruit wands & carrots and dip; grape Gatorade to drink.

 
Then, surprise!, an unexpected guest arrived....

 
Elsa!
None of the girls knew she was coming so they were quite surprised.
And they had about a bazillion questions for her including
do you know the trolls?
why did you freeze Anna? IN HER HEART?
can we see your shoes?
did you know Hans was a bad guy?
where is Olaf?
can we touch you? please don't freeze us!
are you the real Elsa?
how do you know Emerson's mom?
can you come to my birthday???
  
 
They played games, sang & danced, painted faces, made wishes, blew bubbles.

 
Elsa even stayed for cake!


 
Em got lovely gifts,

 
and I think even the boys had fun.


 
It was truly magical.
