My sweet husband brought these beauties home on the occasion of my 31st birthday!
Aren't they lovely?!?
I enjoyed a wonderful birthday weekend. Dusty took me out to dinner downtown, complete with a babysitter at home for the kids! I got to sleep until 8:00 Saturday morning and then we all went to have breakfast at Waffle House. The kids love it and always get a thrill when we go there.
To mark the special day, Libby even lost her very first tooth!
She lost her tooth in every sense of the word. It was nowhere to be found in our little Waffle House booth! I was sure she would freak out about not actually having a tooth to put under her pillow, but she seemed ok with it. Dusty thinks she probably swallowed it while eating her waffle. Oops.
My leisurely Saturday went on to include a little shopping BY MYSELF.
No time constraints. No strollers. No ziploc bags of cheerios.
It was so refreshing.
I went to stores that I usually have to avoid when kiddos are with me. Places with fragile displays and narrow aisles. When I got home, I even took a guilt-free nap! Thankful for a husband who knows I needed this!
My birthday cannoli. Oh, good heavens...
That evening, Libby wrote a note to the tooth fairy explaining what happened...
In exchange, the tooth fairy wrote her back and left her a whole dollar.
Sometimes, when the fairy stays up too late and waits until midnight to write her letter, she uses bad grammar and congratulates little girls on "loosing" their teeth.
Then sometimes little girls get disappointed because they didn't actually get to meet the tooth fairy overnight...
After some explanation that the tooth fairy is in the same class as Santa and the Easter Bunny, all was well! After church, we met my parents and sister in Peachtree City (a good halfway point) for lunch to celebrate Mom's birthday which is the day after mine.
The birthday girl and her little grands...
With three birthdays, February is pretty fun in our family!
