We're losing em' left and right folks.

Well it has been an exciting 3 days for Abra. Her front two teeth had been loose for a few weeks (not to mention her permanent teeth had already broken through completely) and they were hanging by a thread this past weekend. Daddy had given them a tug every night before bed for the past week. We finally had her first official lost tooth on Saturday night right before bed. She is quick to point out that "it didn't fall out, Daddy pulled it out." :-) The tooth fairy WAS able to find our house and left a little present. Abra was elated.

So before I even remembered to tell the family, her other tooth was looking really loose tonight in the bath. Daddy tugged a bit and sure enough, out it came.

Isn't it interesting that the two front bottom teeth were Abra's first two that appeared at the exact same time at 4 months old? The came together. They went together.

The torture chair.
Checking our her new look.
She was so proud.
Showing off to Derek.
Then 2 nights later, tooth #2 is out! She is a pro now.
She went to bed wondering aloud if the tooth fairy brings the same thing every time....:-)

Abra showcasing her work titled "An Easter Egg on Wheels" and Neiv shoving a magnadoodle pen up her nose. Strange children.

the after-shocks of "fall-back"

Eating a PB&J is completely exhausting.

What a cast of characters....

Aren't they sweet? They are always kissing on each other.

Fall means fun at the Fair!

The State fair is just getting better every year as the kiddos get older. They had a blast this year and the weather was perfect. Alan's Uncle Foster has a big tractor display and tent which is what we use as "base camp." It is like having VIP passes. We are getting seriously spoiled.

The girls contemplating the plight of the farmer.
O was diggin' it.
Oliver's weird "taking it all in" face.
The carousel - always a crowd-pleaser.
For $9, two little girls and their grandma can go in circles for 45 seconds. Who are the suckers here?
My deep-thinkers.
As in, what should we eat next? A turkey leg? An elephant ear? Hmmm.

This was fun to watch - mostly for Anita's facial expressions.
Neiv in her element.
Abra looks scared out of her wits but she immediately said, "I want to do it again!"
Nit was having a blast.
Back to the tractors.
Picture with Alan's cousins' kids (facing the sun of course). Aren't they cute? Sweet kids.
Rather stoic goats.
We were so glad Gingy got to come this year (although we missed Uncle Ben).

Great face O.
Ended the day with ice cream since hot days are coming to an end.
He liked the ice cream.
