Oh what an ordeal!:) Gabriel’s right, front tooth has been loose for months. We thought it would go this summer but no, it held on! Then we guessed it would be out by Halloween for sure (especially with all that hard candy)! Nope, it stayed put. Well, it’s been hanging by a thread for a few weeks now and we finally had to take action. Thanks to our listeners with some valuable advice, it’s finally out! Last night Jim took a napkin (to get a good grip) and did a quick twist and pull. I cringe just thinking about that and applaud him for doing it! For some reason I get squeamish with that sort of thing. It took a little more doing but thankfully he was able to go to bed with the tooth under his pillow last night!
So that was the big event of the weekend. Jim is working on the basement and we are excited to see the final product. I’m also excited for the short, holiday week! We are having family come over and it should be great, I am so grateful for the company and togetherness. Next year I think we are going to try deep frying the turkey. Everyone keeps saying it’s fantastic and I especially love the quick cooking time! Although it sounds pretty dangerous too, that’s nothing to mess around with apparently! This year it will be the old faithful, traditional fresh butterball though…mmmm I can smell it already! Happy (early) Thanksgiving!
