Another Tooth Gone!

Well it seems that Michael is getting ready to loose yet another tooth! This will be his 3rd tooth to come out. He previously lost his two bottom teeth and now we are working on the 2 front top teeth, this is his left tooth. It is VERY wiggly, on the verge of falling out any MINUTE now. But he is being very careful with it. Not even wanting to eat anything that may force the tooth out.

I tried to convience him to let me pull it out, but he wont come near me :(

Even tried to tell a tiny story and say I was once a dentist at age 14...sadly he didnt buy it and turned around without saying a word and walked out of my room, yet to return.

I ended up making him some chicken noodle soup for dinner and mini pringles, I tried for a half of bolonga sandwhich but that wasnt even touched in fear of a tooth coming out.

Well it looks like it isnt coming out tonight, maybe I am speaking too soon, but at of now 9pm there is not a tooth that has come out of his mouth.

Well looks like I typed too soon because it came out! Michael asked his daddy to help him take it out and have a lost tooth! It was well liked by the tooth fairy as she left $4 for him the next morning :)

Merry Christmas - 2008

Merry Christmas!
Today is Christmas, last night, Christmas Eve, wasnt too eventful, I was running to stores in the mess that is was! And up late wrapping, ran out of tape around 12am, and traveled to 3 different 7-11 stores to find some tape! I didnt go to sleep until close to be woken up this morning at 7:30, which was amazing, since Michael didnt go to sleep until late, and usually sleeps til 11am, but given it is Christmas and he probally couldnt contain his excitement he woke up early.
We actually told him to lay with us for a minute before we went in there and had to wait for daddy to take a shower! UgH, while daddy was taking a shower Michael and I made breakfeast and watched a little TV.
Finally when daddy was done with the shower, it was time to open the gifts from Santa!
Michael was excited to get the easel board he had been asking for, and has actually spent a good amount of time on it today, he likes the white board feature, and the painting papper that rolls out. We have not used the chalk side, but that is because we didnt buy any chalk, or sorry Santa didnt bring any :)
Michael also got UB Funkeys started kit and some other ones to go with it, he played that alot today as well. They are actually fun and I played it a bit as well.
Santa also brought Michael Clue Jr., which we are playing as I type, Scrabble Jr. A bike, a huge candy cane, knex, match box car town set and some other things.
From Grandma Christie, a $25 check! Which he said he was going to save.
His Aunt Crystal also sent a check for $25 which he said he was going to save.
Grandma Angie got Michael clothes which he really needed :)
Michael's Reese got him a guitar which he asked for and legos, He also received a Wii Fit from Uncle John, Aunt Galena and his cousins.
He received tons of other things, like a radio boom box...but he wants an MP3 player soo I checked Toys R Us and they are actually 50% off and so we just might have to exchange it tomorrow.
We did do anything special for a Christmas Dinner, Michael and I just had some Turkey, chicken stew Mike's mom cooked last night - it was good, a bit spicy for Michael so he ate a hot dog instead. I heard that chinese restraunts are open but I am not feeling like ordering and waiting and wasting money.
Mike's mom got us some towels and bed sheet set which those things we really needed!
Mom sent me a check for $100! I bought a couple outfits with those :) Thanks mom!
My friend and co-worker Tara got me a gift card to Sonic! and a santa figurine that is so cute and now sitting on my mantel.

Other then that, that is all, Michael had a good Christmas and that is all that matters :)
We were able to ship my families gifts to them this week, a day late, they should receive them tomorrow, Friday the 26th.
I really hope that they love the gifts we got them.
I was really tired, and Mike drove me home from his brother's house and I went right to sleep...woke up when he later got home with Michael and then passed back out...I am still tired and could pass back out right now if I wasnt busy playing with my son and blogging.
I hope each and everyone had a very Merry Christmas!

Here is our tree! With all the lovely cards we received :)

What A Busy Day!

Today we had an adventure first we headed out to Miss Tara's house to make some candles, Michael helped out toward the end, after he laid around, watched some of T.V. and attempted to put together the rest of Tara's started puzzle.
After the candles were poured Tara wanted to treat Michael to some ice cream at Gaylord Texan, which was really cool because we had not been there before, it was during the day so we were not able to see the lights, but it was still amazing anyway. We saw a huge gingerbread house, which Michael wanted to eat.

He was lovin the trains there and wanted to take pictures and watch it. I think he could have watched it and took pictures all day if I let him.

After we dropped off Miss Tara we headed to Bass Pro Shop to see Santa!
Michael made a gingerbread man there, played with a remote controlled car/truck and shot a gun :) dont worry it was a laser gun not a real one.

Michael passed out on the way home and slept all the way until a little while ago, it is now 11:40pm! Yeah I think we are in for a long night with a well rested 6 year old LOL!
We had a great day which will lead to another great day tomorrow, because after seeing his major intrest in the trains and both Gaylord and Bass Pro Shop, we are heading to North Park Mall to see the trains there!

Today was Michael's class room holiday party. I volunteered my time at the ediable christmas tree station. YUM...(I guess) The kids had 5 stations they were routating.

1. Ediable Christmas Tree Station
(they took sugar cones, covered in green icing and decorated with candy)
2. Reindeer Face Station
(traced feet and hands and made faces of reindeer with google eyes)
3. Gingerbread Man Station
(cut out of sand paper, rubbed cinnamin on it, and decorated)
4. Snack Station
(yum food)
5. Gift Station
(kids wrapped an empty boxes, with a cute poem saying that inside the box was LOVE)
It was fun, and we had some warm up time, but I got it after the first table :) It was fun!

Enjoy these Pictures of Michael and his class mates :)

Take a look at this reindeer food, what a great idea!

A Mom in my local Moms Group lost her child last week. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.Angelina was 16 months old. Her life ended when a TV fell on top of her. They were able to save her organs and donate them. A 10 month old baby received her heart and a 7 year old boy received her liver. And another recipient received both of her kidneys. A miracle has been able to happen out of this tragedy.Angelina is survived by her parents, Jessie and Miguel and two siblings, Yesenia (5) and Elena (4). I can not even begin to imagine what they are going through right now.Please say a little extra prayer for Elena, the 4 year old sibling. The accident happened on her 4th birthday. Angelina was rushed to the hospital and survived till the 10th. It was on that day that they feel they lost her, but the hospital kept her "alive" till the 12th so they could use her organs.Donations to cover the cost of the funeral can be made today only by calling (tomorrow is the funeral)

Birthday Parties Glore! (Day 2)

Today we continued our weekend of parties. We had a 1:30pm party at Dr. Pepper Star Center in Plano for a day of Ice Skating and cake for our friend Preston, who Michael misses dearly!
(Preston's dad and Michael's dad used to work together and are friends, we also used to live in the same neighborhood as them, and Michael was in the same First grade class until we moved.)
Michael never iceskated before today so I was a bit worried about it.

At first Anne and Tim (Preston's parents) said Preston never went either but he looked like he was doing well out there on the ice.

So I let Michael go, he was against the wall for a while and fell a few times, then I went out on the ice to protect him and keep him from commiting ice suicide.

He got brave and didnt need my help anymore LOL

Then Mike (who never ice skated before either) decided he was going to get on the ice as well. He ended up making 2 little friends on the ice who were instructing him how to skate. It was so funny!

Until he fell and one kid rolled over his finger and sliced it. But he was a trooper and was bandaged and back out on the ice in no time! So proud of him for that!

Michael ended up falling and bumping his head pretty bad in the back, we had a crying episode for like 10 minutes but swayed Michael back on the ice and he was fine.
It was time for cake and presents and we shared some yummy chocolate cake! It was good. Then Preston opened his gifts from everyone.
Afterwards we came home and passed out.
I must say I already knew how to skate so I didnt fall :) and I had a really good time!
