Finally! It's out!

I couldn't stand it any longer. Tonight (on our way to Boise) at dinner Halle kept doing her Nanny McPhee tooth and grossing everyone out. (Especially Alyssa, she doesn't handle these things well.) So when we got back in the car I asked Halle to let me wiggle her tooth one more time. I promised to only use one finger. Little did she know, I used the finger with a finger nail.
She was NOT happy about the one finger flick that just occurred. It took only 1/10 of a second and the tooth FLEW out. Hallelujah! We're done with it.
We're much happier about it now! I was trying to get a picture of her with her cute new smile, but I think she is related to her Uncle Quin; she can't keep her eyes open if she thinks about the flash going off. They just water like crazy, it was pretty funny.
Doesn't she look like a grown up 7 year old with that cute toothless grin? Sure hope the tooth fairy knows how to track us down in the hotel tonight!

Look at you posting so late into the evening, and me, sitting with my mother-in-law and Mark not two feet from me typing to YOU!! lol.

They're doing "computer stuff" and so am I....but my computer stuff is more fun I think. :)

Anyway, hooray for cute Halle. She really does look older. It's weird that she's only seven! I guess I still see her as that 5 year old falling asleep in my class. That little Halle.

It's great to see Jennifer's pictures. I hope the McCall trip is fun!

Hip, Hip, Hooray! Aunt Mimi will be so happy too! And yes, what a cute seven year old smile!

Although, I did always wonder what she would like when that perfect little toothed smile began to come apart. Now we know.

Way to go, Elena. I think I'm with Alyssa, though, I have a really hard time with loose teeth, too. Hope you have a good trip! Looking forward to the recap next week. Tell Jarom "hi" for us! One more week!!!

I am so glad that tooth is out. What a funny little pill! And her little toothless grin is adorable.

PS we miss you already...friday I woke up exercise withdrawals.
