It happened on 7/3/13, another reminder to me that my children are growing up!!! I knew it would be any day since her tooth was barely hanging on. My daughter was sitting at the dinner table and while eating she said, "my tooth came out!" She was grinning from ear to ear and so thrilled. Even with a little blood there were no tears but just excitement! YAY!
I know the second tooth will be out soon too. Soon she will enter that awkward tooth stage. You know the one that creates funny smiles!
It was so fun watching your excitement when you first realized you had a lose tooth to the end when you lost it. I am amazed at your maturity at 5 years old. I will continue to pray for you and your bright future but my heart wants to hang on to you and not allow you to get any older. Maybe it's a protection thing, maybe it's myself who does not want to get older, or maybe its my way of not wanting the world to hurt or cause you pain as you get older. All I can tell you is I will always be praying for you, I will always be your #1 fan, and I will try my hardest to protect you. As I watch you grow up I watch you fall more and more in love with Jesus and I pray that I would always be held accountable in raising you in TRUTH, teaching you who you are in Christ! You my sweet little girl are royalty, a princess of the most high God, and you my dear will shake history- You are a world changer! I know God has big plans for you- I am having fun watching Him already use you.
I love you and I am excited for you to use your cool coupons for losing your first tooth.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
