My Cousin's Wedding. . . and other Kilps happenings

Our kids have kept the tooth fairy very busy during these past few weeks.  Graydon lost two teeth and Curtis and Bella each lost one!

Graydon's second top tooth looking oh so loose!

Curtis was so fearful of losing a tooth that he never tried, even with its replacement already halfway grown in.  Then during our drive up to Wisconsin, he sipped on a milkshake and the straw put enough pressure on this super loose tooth that it just came out.  No pain and no blood.  Just the way he wanted it.  But if he continues at this rate, he may still have baby teeth when he heads off to college!

I tried to take a photo of him later that evening, but you can hardly tell that he lost a tooth since his adult tooth was already mostly grown in.

The main reason we went up to Wisconsin at the end of January was for my cousin, Bridget's, wedding.  Here are three of my sisters at the wedding.

Their wedding took place at a museum that overlooked Lake Michigan. (By the way, this happy couple right here just got engaged last night in Chicago!  Another family wedding to look forward to!)

Bella received another American Girl doll and a Bitty Baby from Gaga recently.  One Saturday morning, I found her and Curtis the dolls, and Curtis's kitty enjoying a special breakfast.

I found them snuggling together a different morning.  I love witnessing the friendships develop between the kids.

We accidentally locked ourself out of our house and had to break in. The only window that wasn't locked was the one over our sink. Bella took one for the team (and then Graydon followed her in because he wanted to break in too).

Graydon lost his other top tooth! Andy pulled it out at Cracker Barrel on our last morning in Wisconsin.  DSC_0525_01

Graydon and I enjoyed lunch in my classroom at school one day.  Bella (and some of her friends) usually join me at least once a week.  Seeing them throughout the day is one of the greatest perks of my job. Also, Graydon gave himself a haircut, which is why his bangs are SO short!

I thought only girls cut their hair. He looks completely different with hair and teeth.
