Anna Kate'th Looth Tooth

Every night after all the teeth are brushed, all the rooms are clean, and all the chores are done, our children prolong lights out by hugging each other, Mom and Dad, and each other some more. It is a routine that is sweet to dear old Dad. Well, tonight it generated some excitement. Max man got a little wild and crazy and knocked out one of Anna Kate's teeth with his upper arm in an excited "bedtime detracting" hug of his dear little sister. I was going through my routine with Jake when AK came in with her bloody mouth crying saying Max hugged her too hard, and Max signing away rapidly in the background trying to explain his side of the story.

Fret not folks. Anna Kate said not a half hour later "this is one of the best nights of my life."

Here's the pics. Enjoy.

Oh, and she wanted to make sure everyone saw the bloody side of the tooth.

The Stare-Down

Shortly after Christmas the kids and I headed to Sunfish to visit my parents. We got to spend time with Mark, Teresia, Landry and Reid. We were also joined by Aunt Carol. We had a great time just being together.
Just before we headed home, Papa took a few pictures of the kids. Jake was sitting in a tall barstool-type chair that has a back rest and arms. Max stood by the chair and posed by propping his elbow up on the arm of the chair. Jake pushed it off. Max put it back on. Jake pushed it off, again. And then there was a stare-down. Mom and Carol and I just died laughing and Papa caught it on camera!

Lest you think that Jake cannot hold his own with his big brother--those eyes say it all!
