All I Want for Christmas is my 2 Front Teeth

Or, just one… Robynn lost her first tooth!

Here it is all gross and wiggly in her mouth on November 21st.

On November 28, it finally came out!




When Robynn was born, yes – when she was born – my Step-Mum gave her a cute little bear that would hold her teeth to give to the tooth fairy. It’s very cute – in it’s own little, hand-painted box, on a cloud of stuffing… well, Robynn finally got to make use of this little guy. She was very excited.



This was Robynn the next morning… I just love my sleeping angel.


She was really excited to see what the Tooth Fairy had left her (by the way, the going rate for a small little tooth is $2!), and checking to see what she received got her out of bed quicker than most mornings!


Happy Birthday Auntie Jessica

One of my best girlfriends – Jessica – has made the *crazy* move to the land of cold and snow (Montreal, Quebec – okay a little town just outside of Montreal – where they speak French no less!). “Hmm, does Auntie Jessica speak French Mommy?” “No, honey… but she might pick up a few words.”

Jessica moved to Quebec to be with the love of her life and his family – but he’s in the Navy (yup, Canada has a Navy – had to look that one up! – but you would think with all this water, that we’d hear a little more about it – I digress…), so they may be back in BC before you know it.

A few girls sent Jess off with a couple of drinks and lots of love the week before her departure.



A couple of days before she left Lotus Land, Auntie Jessica had to come and see her girls. Here are some shots of that visit.



Oh, and Happy Birthday Auntie Jessica. Here’s the video of Natasha scootching – just for you!

Love you!

Blue eyes...

... Baby's got blue eyes (Elton John my friends).

I'm going through my photos (there's a lot I haven't even looked at since taking them!). And this one was too good not to share.

It was taken on November 10 - oh, I do make cute kids. Maybe I should make another one!

Santa photo!

We made the trek to see Santa this morning - it wasn't nearly as eventful as last year! Were were in and out in less time than it took to drive to Coquitlam Centre.

Robynn played shy. Natasha hammed it up. And we had a great shot.

This year Robynn wrote her first Santa letter. She dictated to me, and then copied what I printed out for her - here it is (typed) below:

Dear Santa,
Have a good time coming to our house. I am going to have cookies and milk for you. I have been a good girl. I help my Mommy and I take good care of my sister. Thank you for bringing me Petshop toys last year. This Christmas I don't want any toys I just want love.

Merry Christmas

Love Robynn

Yup, she just wants LOVE!!!!!!!!! Wow, I have the best kid in the world!!!!!! I even took her to Toys R Us for an hour browsing the aisles looking for what she'd want. At one point she was thinking she might ask for a red Christmas ornament, but she wasn't set on that. Robynn put a lot of thought into what she was going to ask for this Christmas. She wants love. I love her!

Now, if any of you have an idea how I can wrap up love, please let me know... I was thinking I might make her a scrapbook with her favourite pictures of family and friends. When she opens that, the charade of Santa may be up, but I'm ready for it.


Who could ask for anything more?

I give up...

Okay, I've been wanting my blog to go in chronological order, but that just means I'm getting further and further behind. A wise person told me to start where I am, and when time permits, fill in the gaps... So that is what I'm going to do.

Needless to say, the Reid household has been busy. And it's not likely to get any less so. I was asked by my principal if I'd be willing to work an extra day - that makes four days per week beginning in January. I did ask for this in the summer, so now that it's being offered, I can't turn it down. We are blessed to have grandparents willing to be with our girls for two of the four days I'll be at work, which makes it worth the effort.

Hmm, not much more to say for now. I'll keep you posted, and fill in the blanks from September to now along the way.
