All I Want for Christmas...

...is my one bottom tooth! Owen finally lost his first tooth last week. It had been loose for what seems like forever, and Owen was talked into letting Daddy pull it out. After getting over the sight of a little blood, Owen's first words were, "hey, now it won't take me as long to brush my teeth since I have one less tooth in there!" He was so excited to leave it for the tooth fairy that night...but the tooth fairy almost blew it. Luckily she remembered to leave him a little something right before she went to bed! Crisis averted!
P.S.- Yes, he does have a green cheek...he had a shark painted on his face the day before at the school carnival :)

Lake Cle Elum

Lauren still corrects me..."Mom, it's not called the lake, it's called Lake Cle Elum!" Either way, we spent a weekend there with the family. Mom and dad, Aaron and Jill, and Andrew and Jeny all came. Because the lake gets all the snow melt, the water was freezing, but it didn't stop Owen from living in his swimsuit and life jacket all weekend. The kids went fishing with Grampa and Uncle Andrew, got skunked, but still had fun. It was a fun, relaxing few days spent in the sunshine!

A Day at the Beach

We took a day and went to Westport with some friends. The kids had a great time playing in the water and jumping off the sand dunes...the grown-ups even got in on the fun too! I'm still amazed how resilient kids are to how cold the water is! Everyone had a great time, and the kids were wiped out on the ride home!
