Monday Funday

Since Monday Funday took a weird turn because of the whole tooth debacle, we decided just to go to Chick-fil-A for lunch and play in their play area.  We actually ran into two of Griffin's friends from school and he proudly showed off his toothless grin. 

Ryan had the best Monday Funday of all.  He finally has his long awaited shed installed in the back yard.  

So happy!!
He's not going to be smiling when he starts moving all those tools into this bad boy!  ;)

Snaggle Tooth

Today was an eventful day at the Beals household.  Griffin lost this first tooth, times TWO!!

Long story short, his permanent tooth was growing in before his baby tooth was even loose. We just noticed it over the weekend, so I called the dentist this morning to have her take a look at it.  They did an X-ray to get a better look, and decided to go ahead and pull BOTH front bottom teeth.  

Turns out, this kid is braver than brave.  They said he did not even cry or get nervous at all.  They gave him a little laughing gas, numbed him up and got them out before he even realized it.  So proud of him and he is so super proud of being toothless!!  
Our attempt at taking a before picture.  If you look closely, you can see the permanent tooth behind. 
After they were finished, they said I could come back to grab him.  He was in the game room playing games like nothing ever happened.  He had to keep the gauze in so he would not bite his lip from being numb.  Poor thang was drooling all over the place.

Of course, Mama had to get a snaggle tooth picture.  You can really see that permanent tooth now.

Although, he was pumped about the tooth fairy, he was quite disappointed that she would take his teeth.  So, he wrote her a little note to politely ask her to leave them behind. 

I am sure she is a sucker for this little guy!

Putting his teeth and note in the tooth fairy pillow Aunt Nancy made him!

Grandma Nyna Fun!

Poor Grandma Nyna goes non-stop when she visits.  She plays with the kids from sun up to sun down!  We all love it so much when she comes to town.  Unfortunately, besides Great Wolf Lodge and the V day parties, I didn't snap too many pictures.  We had fun, there is just not much proof of our fun!  ;)

Family bonding....coloring

My favorite pic!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

The kids enjoyed their Valentine's parties over the last two days.  We also celebrated a little today as a family.  

I am not too crafty, but I do like putting a little effort into their Valentines.  I will likely change my mind when I have to produce 25 of them in "real" school, but for now it is super fun to make 10 or 12.  :) They turned out super cute!

Grandma Nyna and I went to Ansley party on Thursday
Handing out her Valentines

She shared her candy when she got home.  Sweet girl!
 This morning they both got a bag with a few things

And a super special heart shaped donut

Then it was off to Griffin's party at school
Miss Priss wanted me to snap a few pics before we left

Mommy's valentine

Playing envelope, envelope, Valentine (aka duck, duck, goose)

Griffin was lucky enough to get Dolly, the other class pet!

We surprised them with going to see the Lego Movie after school.

Great Wolf Lodge!

That's right....we went again!!!  Grandma Nyna saw our pictures from last time and wanted to go while she is in town.  We had a blast!

Ready to have some fun!

Griffin and Ryan coming down the River Canyon Run

Ryan took my phone (in a water case) on the slide and got a super cute video of Griff. 

In the wave pool.  Check out the noddle hog!

Ansley finally decided she would go down the big slide.  She LOVED it!!  You have to wait about 5 seconds for her to come down.

Snow Day

Today we woke up to it snowing outside!  We did make the kids wait until they got home from school to play it in (too cold this morning).  Unfortunately, most of it was gone by that time.  They had fun regardless!!  It was good snow too, pure powder!

Modeling her new snow suit from Nanny! 

Griffin found one of the few full spots to make a snow angel

Sis found one too.  Pure joy!!
