She actually brought the pliers to Grandpa Martin and had him pull the first one out. It was the day after Thanksgiving. Luckily the tooth fairy had a little cash in her bag.
This is a good view of the teeth growing in, in all kinds of wrong places. They have straightened considerably since the baby teeth came out.
OH THE HORROR OF GETTING THE SECOND TOOTH OUT. Mia did not willingly want this one out. It was hanging by nothing but she was afraid it was gonna hurt. Ben and I just wanted it out so the new tooth had a chance to grow in straight. After many tears it finally was pulled Monday night with dental floss.

Dallin after church with his cake and goodie bag from the Bishop. He was so cute when they sang to him in Primary.
Opening his first present. Kind of an impromtu thing. We don't normally open presents on the bed but I thought this was a cute picture of all 3 kids. (Yes, I'm laying in bed. No, there was no way to crop me out of the picture and get the kids, I tried. I have a sinus infection, I was tired from staying up to make that blasted cake so give me break, okay)
Dallin's favorite gift, of course. He didn't even care about cake and ice cream after he opened this bad boy. I'm glad he likes it because it's really annoying when you think your kid is gonna love a gift and they hardly play with it.
This is how much he loved it. I guess he doesn't mind sharing his bed with the ship. I think it's great! Simply a Dallin thing to do.

Dallin finally conceded to my pleadings and decided to wear his suit to church on Sunday. Actually, he didn't even give me much grief about it. He was a little confused as to why he had to wear a shirt though......when we first brought it home for him, we let him try it on without a shirt ;-)
After church.....he was so proud of his "I can be honest" crown.
Ben tonight before mutual looking nerdy.....uh, I mean nifty in his new scout shirt.

Scariest lion you'll ever see.
The butterfly flies in to see Minnie Mouse, who is terrified of the lion ;-)
My, what big teeth you have Minnie!
Even lions need a little relaxation
Best cheerleaders EVER! They took a break on Saturday, hence, the lose.

When Mia turned one we were on a trip so she got this dumb store-made cake. She didn't care.
I couldn't find a picture of Mia's 2nd birthday so this is around her 2nd birthday.
Mia was so cute when she turned three.
Mia was very decisive about what she wanted for her 4th birthday cake! PURPLE!
We had a party when she turned 5 and I had a few pictures of the decorations but this was the only one we got of her......as you can tell, we are great parents when it comes to taking pictures. I figure we'll do a party about every 5 years. I'm not big on elaborate parties.
She was so excited to open presents today and she again requested purple frosting for her cake. WE LOVE MIA!!

Dallin was in need of a bath after the second day there so here he is in the tub.
Ben and I had to go to two days of education classes. It was informative on some level for Ben but it was just a review for me since I have been doing this for 23 years now. Dallin sat there so well and played at his little table.
This is Dallin in PT. We had to learn how exercise will affect him and his blood sugars. He looked pretty funny with the surgery cap on under the helmet. He loved playing there.
After we had walked around for a while, Ben needed a rest and Dallin was happy resting while watching a cartoon.
Dallin enjoyed alot of chicken fingers while at the hospital, among othern things.
We visited the Koi Pond when Dallin got restless. He loved the fish. All of the nurses loved him!
Taking time to play in the activity room.
Dallin suffering from low blood sugar. I felt badly for him as I know all too well how horrible you can feel when you are low. He was tired too.
Sleep finally won the battle.....on the way home from the hospital.
I guess I was more tired than I thought I was too. I couldn't even make it to the bed before falling asleep.
Since we have been home from the hospital Dallin has been gradually getting better about his shots and finger pokes. He has to have a minimum of 4 shots and 6 finger pokes daily. He has had some low and some high blood sugar levels. He struggles with not being able to snack whenever he wants to. I feel so blessed that I know so much already and know how he's feeling and I feel confident in my decisions about his care. Ben has been so great with him too. Like he always is with me. All in all Dallin is doing well. It will be a lifetime challenge though.

Cami turned 1 yesterday. We cannot believe it has been a whole year since that very fast and scary delivery when she was born. She has grown a ton since then and learned so much. Ben's parents came over from Memphis and we went to the zoo to celebrate. Maryann and David and Lisa and their kids joined us for cake and ice cream and presents. We had a good time. I know it has been forever since I have posted and I have a lot to post of the zoo and her birthday......and other stuff from the last month. But, I thought I would start you off with a teaser video of us singing to her. Watch it all cause the end is the best part. All I have to say is, she's fast!
