We have just been thrust into the world of orthodontia. Kylie has a tongue-thrusting thing in the top of her mouth . . . and just had two teeth pulled and braces put on her top teeth. She handled it all pretty well. I'm just amazed she can talk! Of course, it would take more than that to slow down her talking . . .

Before braces . . . I think she'll be pretty excited when she starts seeing results.

Still as cute as ever! Ashton will be following suit soon. She is scheduled to get full braces in February, followed by surgery to take care of a few impacted teeth. At least we are all healthy . . . teeth are a good thing to have challenges with I guess.

Creative Basement Uses

My husband has become quite creative in using the basement. Maybe it's because of the few long cold spells we have had. Whatever the reason, I'm thankful that he thinks "out of the box". The kids are having a ball!

Kylie is doing very well with her "new" bow. She may be Rob's new archery hunting buddy. At the rate she is going, he may have a hard time out-shooting her!

Remy is often "workin'" or fixing something. His latest favorite spot to hang out is Rob's workbench. He spent an hour there just checking things out and playing with a screwdriver. Definitely his father's son!

Kylie and Sena ready to rollerblade. Ashton runs to keep up with them - she outgrew her rollerblades. Rob gets his old rollerskates out and round and round and round the stair well they go.

While the rest of the crew is rolling around, Remy keeps up on his little car. He whips around corners without even looking where he is going. Other than toes, he doesn't run into much.

Always wanting to keep up with his sisters . . . here's Remy . . . ready to rollerblade!
