Can't believe it actually worked!

I'm not even sure where Xander saw this infamous loose tooth extraction technique but he was bound and determined to make it work. The older kids have tried this before and got broken string, slipped off string and stuck teeth...
but never...

Success! Not sure who was more surprised, him or me! (That a little bit of blood and a WHOLE lot of water on his shirt, btw.) 1st tooth is out!


Once the initial shock wore off, Xander was pretty proud of himself.



...and the next morning, he was even happier!

Happy Chinese New Year!

Meili loves any excuse lately to wear some of her Chinese clothes. If you can't wear this on Chinese New Year, then when can you wear them, right? These were supposed to be practice shots with more coming after her hair dried but we must have gotten distracted by the delicious food...
