Food lately

With the chill always in the air lately, we have made some very warm comfort food. The potpie recipe makes enough for two nights of dinners for us. That's always a bonus!Homemade Chicken Pot Pie

Second lost

That was quick:) Last night the tooth fairy came for the Doll's first tooth and this morning at breakfast the neighbor tooth made a jump for it. She almost swallowed it with her toast! Interestingly, the tooth fairy took the pink box that was used for storing the tooth. So are leaving a note tonight for the fairy to please keep the tooth box with the pillow. Very proud girl to be showing some holes in her smile:)

Tooth fairy pillow

Our Doll has lost her first tooth. We decided to make a tooth fairy pillow based on her favorite animal of the season. A fox:) The dentist had given us a box to keep her lost tooth in and now we have a safe place to keep it for the fairy to find the missing tooth. Pretty fun time making it with my little helper.

First lost tooth

Well, it's been several days since the first wiggle came to the bottom incisor. This morning when she came in for breakfast. I could see there was a huge difference in the loose'ness' of the little baby. She insisted that it was not ready to come out. Mommy on the other hand was of a different opinion. So with a count of 10 and one gentle nudge, the first lost tooth had come out of its place in her smile~on the count of 2:) Bella bunny was glad to have been a witness.

1-10 coop

Winter Coop has begun. Our sweet girl had to play school once she returned home. It seems she is starting to not mind the half day away from her mommy. She was teaching them about fairies:)

Piano lessons

We started some new math and music.... Piano Lessons. It's great fun watching her excel and enjoy the art of music. We have found a very kind and assertive teacher for our little doll.

Bella and Lola play Circus

I'm pretty sure that the circus reenactment is from recently watching the new Madagascar:) It's always wonderful to see her little brain come up with play.

Happy Birthday Mom!

I was so surprised by the homemade Happy Birthday Banner my little one made me for my special day. I loved the ruffle shirt she picked out. Her and dad spent the afternoon making a fabulous cake with hand dipped chocolate strawberries. I'm one lucky girl to have such an awesome family.

New Year's Day

Snow was still covering the play ground on New Years Day so we went looking for birds. We didn't really find many but we did see a really cool bird's nest. After spending time in the cold we defrosted with some hot tea.
