Decorating the Tree - Without me!

I am involved in a Chirstmas Choir this year. So while I was off practicing the Hallelujah Chorus and other tricky Handel pieces, the family put up the Christmas tree.

Alexa dragged the stool in from the kitchen with more perserverance the the other two kids put together. And we know how headstrong they are!
And I wanted to give my appreciation to Ryan for actually photographing the moments - without being asked! Wow is all I can say. He is the bomb!


Brandon has now lost his first teeth. In 2 days he has lost 2 (3?) teeth. He was so scared to lose the first, it just fell out at school. But the permanent was already half grown in.
Yuck. Can I say I hate other people's teeth?
Well, he also had 2 fused teeth. One large tooth with 2 roots. One root was gone, but the other was still attached. So the next day, Ryan told him he was flossing and wrapped the tooth with floss and pulled it out. Eeew. Blood, etc. Luckliy I wasn't there. I say leave it in the mouth until it falls. And now the tooth fairy is 3 (2?) teeth richer, or $3 dollars poorer. And Brandon is mad. He liked his double tooth.
