Rainy Memorial Day

We planned a backyard campout for the long weekend, which we had to cancel due to the rain. We decided to have a makeshift indoor campout complete with a candle campfire. I was surprised how well the marshmallows still roasted with such a tiny flame:) It required a lot of patience, which is possessed only by Caleb and Daddy. The rest of us nuked them for a second in the microwave!

Courtney Lost a Tooth!

Courtney informed me yesterday that her bottom tooth was wiggly.

Caleb has been checking her teeth for her ever since he started losing his, and they were so excited to actually find that one was loose!

Today at a friend's pool party Court was eating some pasta salad when she noticed her tooth was bleeding and getting more and more loose.

Her eyes were full of fire and excitement as she ran around to everyone at the party informing them of her situation. We were all cheering for her. Deb, the homeowner, took pictures and got a little baggie and napkin for Court so Rog could work on the tooth. A couple minutes was out!

Unfortunately even with the baggie...the tooth went missing later that evening. Courtney's note to the Tooth Fairy informed her of the mishap, and we are happy to report that Courtney woke up to 4 quarters under her pillow along with a note made from special fairy paper that said if the tooth was ever recovered, Court could put it under the pillow and the Tooth Fairy would come back to pick it up.

Horsing Around

Courtney's 5th birthday party happened at the cutest little farm only minutes from our house. She was in heaven the entire day waiting and overflowing with anticipation! The kids helped me put the cake together and frost it. We had such a fun time...and the owners of the farm made it such a special day for Court.
