making juice and shooting hoops...

Just wanted to post a few pics of what we've been doing...
Mike and the kids have been juicing oranges and MAN, it is good. The kids love it, drink it straight from the juicer :)
And Payton started basketball! He had his first game last Saturday and he did great. He shot about 5 baskets and made 2! He sure looks cute out there and is enjoying himself and practicing at home with Dad.

happy new year baby

We had a fab time at the New Year's bash this year. It has been months {literally} since Mike and I were out on the town without baby in tow. So it was a nice little date night. Friends of ours rented out the ice skating rink and the boys all played broom ball and we skated {Kris was talented on the ice and oh so entertaining...Leigh & I were more conservative, we'll call it} I ate ice one time and still have a huge bruise to prove it. We ate lots of goods and rang in the new year with sparkling bubbly and noise makers. It was really truly the most fun new years party I have been to. We need to make it a tradition! Enjoy the pics...hope your '09 is filled with lots of love.

tooth fairy

Well after intense debate, it's official that the tooth fairy is a girl. And she is broke right about now because Payt's teeth are dropping like flies. Monday after school his bottom right was totally bent down and facing towards me. So he pulled it right out {with a little encouragment...funny how pain is obsolete when it's sure to result in cash} and wow he was sure glad to find $5 in his tooth fairy pillow Tuesday morning. Tuesday night after dinner he was messing with bottom lefty and then I pulled it out! He didn't even blink! I'm afraid the tooth fairy set herself up for bankruptcy by leaving $5 the first night...so now he has $10 in that lightning mcqueen wallet! He is so happy and sticks his tongue through his gap. funny boy.
Monday night we went to dinner with Granny & Pop. Payt showed them his loss and suddenly Roger disappeared to the bathroom. He came back to the table and smiled at Payton. He had a gap too! Payton's eyes were so shocked! {Roger had taken out his bottom mouth piece} It was funny. Then Pop put in back in...and then Payton was really shocked! Funny story...Joan was driving Payton to school yesterday morning and she was asking him about Pop losing his tooth too. Payt said "it's not magic. There's Santa, the tooth fairy, the Easter Bunny, Jesus & Heavenly Father. That's it." He's got that right!
He also told me that the tooth fairy is rich {as I was prepping him that sometimes the tooth fairy doesn't bring the same amount of money for EVERY tooth} and that she builds her house with all the teeth. That has got to be one nasty house! Anyway, there's a tooth fairy buzz going around our house. It's new and exciting! He struggled horribly to keep his eyes open for a picture so this is as good as it gets! Congrats tooth-less Payt!
