We went to Pole Position with our great friends, the Capones. The guys, Savannah and Sydney raced the kart cars. I watched and took pictures (of course) with Cathy, her mom and their son, Colin. I enjoyed watching and not driving this time. Sydney was slow and steady and did a great job staying on the track. Savannah turned into a dare devil and took some crazy turns. Rob and Kevin got competitive and tried to out do each other! We had a great time and we can't wait to try it again. Maybe I will even try racing?!

Dear Tooth Fairy:

I don't want to be a Hillbilly! That was going to be in Syd's letter to the tooth fairy tonight! Yes, tonight another tooth was pulled! It was ready to be pulled and Syd was not going to let us at it. Rob finally convinced her that it needed to come out. She is still scared of the tooth fairy. I thought that when the fairy brought her money, she would be fine, but that has not been the case. I can't wait until she loses the other top front tooth and I hope the new teeth don't come in before spring pictures!

Scrapbook Retreat

My friend and I went on a mini scrapbook retreat this weekend. We scrapbooked for one whole day without any interruptions, and then the next day, we went to a Scrapbook Expo. We got a lot of pages done and enjoyed the short time away. We used the Cricut, Gypsy and Design Studio to help with our pages.

This is my favorite layout of the day.

We saw some great ideas and products at the expo. One of the booths showed some tools and materials that help make mosaic pages possible. I did not buy the whole kit, but I did get some of the papers and guides to create the mosaics. Today, I tried out my tools and this is what I came up with so far! I need a few more pictures to fill in the empty spots, but I really like the look so far!

Sydney is 7 and half and has not lost a single tooth. This has really been a big deal. Her friends have lost multiple teeth and in 2nd grade, they don't always have a tooth loss chart like they did in first and kinder. We were very excited when she actually discovered her first loose tooth! Then another one was loose and soon her front top and front bottom teeth were all loose! Then the tooth fairy talks began and she pretty much decided that all of her teeth needed to stay right where they were because she really didn't think she wanted the tooth fairy in her room and getting close to her. We tried to tell her that we could fix it so that she could leave her teeth another place, but she was not having it! She would not wiggle her teeth anymore, nope...they were staying forever. She did not care that she might get a dollar. She did not care that other people were losing teeth. Her teeth were staying put! Well, this morning we woke up and she showed me her tooth and it was as they say..."hanging by a thread"! It would not take much to get the tooth out. We got the cameras ready and Rob started to work on her. She was not happy and was a little scared. We started the video camera several times and stopped it. At one point, Rob got out his fishing pliers. It wasn't that it wouldn't come was Syd closing her mouth when he was about to get it. Finally he had knocked it around and it was falling out. We got the cameras ready again and Whoopee! HE GOT IT OUT!

Rob's Family

The whole family....almost
Nana and grandkids...
Great game of soccer!

We had Rob's Family over for his mom's birthday. We visited, played wii, ate great sandwiches, and played some soccer. It has been awhile since we have all been together. We were missing three important members of the family: nephew Jared was sick and Rob's sister Cher and brother in law Roger live in South Carolina. We missed them and hopefully we can have a complete portrait with everyone someday soon!

Ice skating

On Christmas Eve, we went to Old Town Temecula and their ice skating rink. They built a little rink in the center of Old Town. Most of the stores were closed, but we were able to skate and enjoy some laughs as my brother, sister and the girls skated around the rink. It took Savannah and Sydney awhile to get their footing, but once they did, they were pretty good! Syd gave us a couple of good falls and scares because she wanted to take off as fast as she could. My brother got a little cocky and decided to try turns and had a crazy fall because of it. He tried to blame my sister though.
