Bye Bye, Baby Tooth

Keri lost her first tooth! I can't believe how fast she is growing!

Hanging by a thread...yuck!

She wiggled it all by herself:

Getting closer:Here it is!
I'm still getting used to seeing her with a hole in her mouth. The other bottom tooth is loose now, so I'm sure it will be out soon.

Keri was so excited about the tooth fairy, then changed her mind at bed time. All of a sudden, she got scared and asked me a million (well maybe not that many, but it sure felt like it) questions about the tooth fairy.

  • What does she look like?

  • How big is she?

  • How will she get under my pillow?

  • Will she wake Kendal up when she goes up the ladder?

and finally....

  • Can I just put my tooth under Daddy's pillow and let the tooth fairy put the money there?

Silly girl! So we let her put the tooth under Daddy's pillow. The tooth fairy did manage to put the money ($2.50) under Keri's pillow along with a note. She was pleasantly surprised when she woke up. Hopefully we won't have so much drama next time, but I won't count on it!

Dancing in the Street!

Keri and I went to Georgetown's Lighting of the Square with Phil, Debbie, Granny, and Uncle Don. Kendal wasn't feeling well so she stayed at home with Daddy.

The night started with caroling on the steps of the courthouse, then Santa came to flip the switch and turn the lights on. Downtown Georgetown looks so pretty all lit up at night.

As we headed to our cars, we noticed there was a band playing in the street. I don't know who was excited most, Granny or Keri. They both danced to some Texas country music and had a blast. Keri kept dragging me in the street and trying to perform some "Dancing with the Stars" moves. She also danced with her Papa & Grandma and had so much fun.
We missed Kyle and Kendal, but I will admit that it was nice to get out and do something fun with just Keri. We don't get to do that as much as we used to and she deserves some one-on-one love! ;-)

Keri's Fall School Program

Keri had her first school program! The theme was Thanksgiving and they sang cute songs like "Five Fat Turkeys Are We" and "I'm Thankful for so Many Things." Kyle had to work that night so I had the video camera and digital camera going at the same time.

Keri sang so loud and even moved her body to the beat a little. :) It really surprised me because she was so shy at her Pre-K graduation last May. I guess my big girl is starting to come out of her shell! (Well, in public....we all know what a nut-job she can be at home. lol!)

Keri is right up front in the white shirt:

Happy Halloween!

The girls had a great Halloween and their costumes were super cute! Keri was Hannah Montana and Kendal was Minnie Mouse.

Carving a Pumkin with Daddy

Kyle and the girls carved a pumpkin tonight. We also watched It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown on t.v.

Cleaning out the pumpkin guts...yuck!

Kendal's turn:

More Softball

Fall softball is almost over and Keri has really enjoyed the season. She played all the positions at least once, and has learned so much about the game. She asks Kyle almost every day to practice softball outside.

I have learned that children's sports are so intense at only 5 years old. We played a couple of teams that were really serious and very concerned about the score. I am glad that Keri was on a team that focused on the girls having fun and learning how to play the game. Keri loved playing with her two friends, Madison and Gracie. She also met some new friends that we will hopefully see again in the spring.

I wanted to share a couple of pictures of Keri in her uniform. She looked so cute in her little pants, belt, & cleats. :-)

Keri playing first base. Yep, she's looking they wrong way. lol!
