After dinner we were going to make carmel apples for our family project, but....
I had a very disobedient little boy who couldn't seem to listen or do what was asked and so
he got sent to bed early. Not wanting to be quite "that" mean I decided to wait on the project for another day. Maybe tommorrow....
My little man, Brayden seems to get hungry every night about 8:30. This little boy eats and eats and eats. He eats a good breakfast, morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack and dinner. I'm telling you though come 8:30 he eats more at that time then he does all day. Being he usually sleeps all night I don't mind to much. Last night was no different. He started whining and beating on the fridge for someone to come help him open it. Daddy came to the rescue, he pointed to the milk so Kory got the milk out and went to get a cup. When he turned around Brayden was pulling a box of cereal out of the cabinet. It wasn't a drink of milk he wanted but a bowl of cereal.
It was just a few minutes into his bowl of cereal that I realized his head wasnt bobbing to get the spoon into his mouth but becuase the poor kid was falling asleep.
Everytime the flash went off his eyes would open to just a slit and you could see his eyes rolling back into his head. Way "Creeepy"!

Once you get the creative side of the brain rolling it's easy to turn everday meals into a fun, festive, haunting meal. One that the whole family enjoys.
They really were participants with this activity too.

By Friday mommy talked her into doing something else. Being a little rushed for time we settled for a skeleton.

Little stinker here wasn't discovered until he came giggling out of the pantry to throw white powder at his parents who were sitting on the couch. He had white powder ALL over including himself.

and she PULLED!
But to no avail that tooth just wouldn't come out.
Talk about frusturation! Eventually she gave up. We took the floss off and told her we'd give it a few more days and try again.
This past Monday Madelyn came home from school so excited. Her tooth fell out at recess! She said that while she was playing tag she bit her teeth together and she felt it pop. She was thrilled she didn't loose it in the grass.
Monday after the kids got home from school our family headed to Cedar City to see some family friends. We ate dinner, had family home evening together and Kory using a borrowed skid steer was able to help finish some landscaping. The entire drive to Cedar, the whole night we were there and all the way home she talked about the tooth fairy. Before we left she put her tooth under her pillow. She wanted to know if the tooth fairy would have already come. I told her no, she had to be asleep 1st. Well....she fell asleep on the drive to Cedar did that count? Ummm sorry but no. But Moooomm, I haven't been home for hours maybe she came cause I'm not home. I again told her that it had to be night time and she had to be asleep on her bed.
I don't know how it happened. I really don't. With all the talk about the toothfairy I don't know how I FORGOT! My only excuse is we didn't get home until after 10, by the time I got the kids to bed and the house picked up a bit it was way way way past my bedtime. The next morning I woke up before everyone with the stomach flu. It was about 6 am and I was in the bathroom puking my guts out when I heard Madelyn standing behind me trying to talk to me. I kept telling her "just a minute" as I continued to puke. When I was able to control myself for a moment I hear her say that the tooth fairy hadn't come.
Again, how did I forget that? I asked her to give me just a moment and I'd come help her look for it for surely the tooth fairy did come. I asked her to go pick out her clothes for the day while I washed my face. As soon as she left the bathroom I ran to our room fumbling in our coin can for 2 quarters. I grabbed them and went to find my disapointed girl. Emily was no longer lying on her pillow but Madelyn's. I had Madelyn climb on her bed and lift up that pillow. Nope no money. I then picked up Emily while leaving something behind and put her back on her own pillow. Madelyn lifted her pillow up and there in the dark you could see the outline of her 2 quarters. With a huge smile on her face I left her be to run back to the toilet I ended up hovering all day.
A few minutes later she came to find me, I was puking AGAIN as she starts shoving her new money into my face. She wanted to know what one of the quarters was. Being so sick without even looking at it I sent her to find her dad for help.
The toothfairy must have gone to Australia that night. Madelyn was given a quarter and a $1 coin from Australia. She was thrilled until she learned it wasn't worth a dollar here. Kory offered to swap her a dollar of US quarters for the dollar from Austalia. She thought it was a great deal. After all it was. What was suppose to be a $.50 prize ended up being $1.25.
What makes this story even better is that when Hunter heard the tooth fairy had come he ran upstairs and with Grandma's help, being mom was to sick, tied a string around his 2nd loose tooth, he then tied the other end to the door and slammed it.
That night before he went to bed he made sure his tooth was under his pillow. When he woke up that next morning he let everyone know that the tooth fairy "jipped" him. How you might ask? To myself I was thinking at least she had remembered to come. Because she only brought him $.50 and Maddie got $1.25
