Hannah lost her FIRST TOOTH!

Hannah lost her first tooth on Tuesday night. Marc and I thought she'd love one of the High School Musical barbies we got for her instead of money for her first tooth only. From now on Hannah will get a gold coin for her teeth. She was so sweet when she woke up and found her gift from the tooth fairy... I'm so proud of Hannah and how much she's changing and turning into a little woman. She's an amazing little girl and I'm honored to be her mother.



This week so far...

Well, I thought we'd just be busy this week with lot's of fun filled activities but it turns out to have been a bit more than that.

On Wednesday morning my phone rang and I answered a call from the DCFS caseworker regarding Shaylee. She proceeded to tell me Shaylee was cleared to go home that very day and that I was to call her mother to let her know when I'd be able to. Well, in complete shock I hung up the phone and shared the news with Marc... We were both in shock! Shaylee going home? We had already purchased tickets for the dinner with Santa at the Zoo so I called her mom and told her we'd have her home after we were done there. She was breathless and so excited to have her daughter home. I must admit, I was happy to have her go home but at the same time I was a bit sad for her. I know Shaylee loved going to church with us and really enjoyed primary. She had never been before and I know she need it so much right now. I hope the seeds we planted with her will grow somehow through her own will. I also hope she'll be safe from the troubles that have haunted her little life and I trust that God has her in His hands. He always has so far. So, we went to the Zoo and had a great time there and Santa was great, he took a lot of time talking to each child which I know they loved. We love Shaylee and will miss her dearly.
Here are our pics from that night.

No real news!

So, I don't have any real news to share or a cool story to write as well, but I thought I'd just write and say things are good so far.
Marc had his office party on Saturday and that was fun, white elephant gifts are always fun to exchange. There was yummy food too!
My mom graciously watched the kids from Friday to Sunday and Marc and I had a great weekend alone. We celebrated my birthday a little early and went to dinner, slept till noon (LOL), and had some good talks. Thank you mom!!!
This week is filled with fun stuff, Tues., is Marc's last final so school will be done until next semester. Wednesday we're having dinner with Santa at the Zoo then checking out the lights they put up around the zoo. The kids have no idea that's what we're doing and I'm so excited! Thursday is my b-day and Marc took some of his vacation days he had left so he'll be off Thurs. and Friday. Also on Thurs. my friend Winter is getting married so we'll go to her reception. Then Friday we're visiting Temple Square and listening to my mom's choir sing too. It will be lot's of fun this week!
I hope today's adventures don't dictate how the rest of the week will go... A pipe broke by one of the other apartment buildings in our complex so we have no water right now. I hope it doesn't take long!
Take care all of you who read my blog! Thank you for stopping by!
