What exciting news for Katie! She FINALLY pulled her first tooth. YAY! I picked her up at school and I couldn't get her in the car fast enough, before she's telling me how her tooth feels loose. I told her that she needed to keep wiggling it, so it would come on out of there. At home, she fooled with it during homework time. At supper time, she bit down on her hot dog and began crying and screaming. I thought she was being her Miss Drama self. I took a peek at her tooth and I could see the new tooth right behind the baby tooth. I guess when she bit down on the hot dog, it broke a root because I could see that the tooth moved and there was a little blood. Once I got her to calm down, I convinced her to let me take a napkin and see if the tooth would pull out. I pulled a little and I could feel that last root pop. My goodness the drama began again. It took her a little while before she realized that I had the tooth in my napkin. She didn't know whether to laugh or cry, so she did both. LOL! I had her go to the bathroom to rinse out her mouth. Well, she didn't understand why I wanted her to do that until she saw the blood in her mouth, looking in the mirror. Here come the screams and crying once again. All the blood scared her to death. Shew! You should have seen her face tonight when I told her that she's got at least 3 more teeth to fall out. She told me, while I was tucking her in bed, she didn't want to go through that again. I reminded her about how she wouldn't have to go through all the pain and having a bruised spot on her gum from letting her tooth just sit there until it fell out on it's own because it was all over. Now, all she has to think about is the MONEY! I got a chuckle out of her and she was all better.
In the above picture, I took a picture of her talking to her grandparents on the phone about her pulled tooth. She kept pointing to her tooth while she talked, as if they could see the tooth through the phone lines. Too funny! She wants everyone to know that her tooth is gone. I felt so sorry for her at gymnastics today because she had to tell her new friends and kept trying to get her coaches' attention. While watching her at practice today, I saw her pointing to her missing tooth to the coaches. Bless her heart, I felt bad when the coaches didn't give her the attention she wanted. I know the coaches have a schedule to keep and lots of little girls to watch over. Katie didn't seem to mind. She got to call her grandma Peggy as soon as we got home, so that made her feel much better.
My great aunt Mary at the age of 101 years old, passed away this morning. She was the eldest and only living sibling remaining out of the 5 or 6 children. Mary was my grandmother's, Ann, sister. My grandmother passed away a month before my wedding day. Aunt Mary was such a sweet sweet spirit and kept everything that was given to her. My mother is a little upset that she passed because she was the last aunt/uncle living. Aunt Mary and my mom were pretty close. I think it was because she was the last tie to my grandmother. I know my family loved her very much and she will be greatly missed.
Doug's great aunt Mae at the age of 87 years old, passed away this morning as well. I was fortunate enough to meet aunt Mae, such a sweet and fun loving lady. Viewing and funeral will be later this week. My father-in-law seems to be doing well. Please remember these families in your prayers. Thank you.
What To Do This Weekend?
The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond, has a new show on the Food Network. The show actually premiered last Saturday, August 27th at 11:30am/10:30c. Y'all may know Ree from her blog The Pioneer Woman. When I first started blogging, I would follow her pretty good. She's published a cookbook "The Pioneer Woman Cooks". And now she's got a show on Food Network, one of my favorite networks to visit when Doug's not at home or asleep. I hate that I didn't get to see her premiere the other day. According to the schedule, Food Network will be re-showing last Saturday's episode "Surprise Birthday" this Saturday, September 3 at 11:30am/10:30c. I am going to have to record this show, so I don't miss a thing.
Crane Hill is hosting a Sweet Tater Festival Sunday, Sept. 4th and Monday, Sept. 5th. If you would like more Sweet Tater Festival Information Click HERE.
WSCC will host a Bridal Show at Stonebridge Farms on Sept 11th from 1-4PM. For more information, CLICK HERE! A friend's son is getting married at this farm this Fall and I am so hoping that we get invited. I would love to practice taking a few pictures. Y'all this farm is absolutely beautiful and is used mostly for special occasions. They have a restaurant on the property that is only open on Thursdays, other than during the special bookings for the reserved occasions. Doug and I have talked about going out there to eat dinner, but something always seems to come up at the last minute.
Of course, last but not least -
