Hape Fdaxgivin!

That’s Happy Thanksgiving in Lola-speak.

Pre-Thanksgiving family time

Our holiday plans this year got a little  . . . complicated. So at the last minute we jumped in the car and headed to Alabama for a little time with most of the Gaddy clan. We were sorry Uncle Peter couldn’t be there, and as always the visit was much too short, but we relished every second of it none the less. We were able to attend cousin Tracy’s beautiful wedding, visit with aunts, uncles, cousins, and of course Grandmama and Grandaddy. It wasn’t quite Thanksgiving, but we were thankful for our time together none the less.

Lola’s first tooth

With just a little help from Daddy, the tooth is out! When it was all said and done, she was so excited she cried. She just couldn’t believe it was really out. In it’s place this morning was a shiny gold dollar. The tooth fairy even dipped her wings in Lola Gray’s bedside water glass, turning the water purple!

The second tooth is already wiggly, so I think that tooth fairy might be back before too long!

OK. I’ll tell you up front this is not the best video in the world. And the singing didn’t go perfectly. But these kids are so cute, it really didn’t matter at all.


See the man in that photo? That, folks, is my amazing husband who ran his first marathon on Saturday. 26.2 miles. Can you believe it? I could not be more proud if he had come in first place!
