Rainbow Loom

We finally broke down and purchased the latest craze in kids crafts...a Rainbow Loom. I first heard about these on Facebook and via my Michaels subscription emails.  Then, the kids came home from school wearing a bracelet or two that friends of theirs made and gave to them.  So, I had to check these out.  It looked like something all of them would really enjoy.  Thanks to freebie money I had accumulated at Amazon, I broke down and got a Loom for them.  They counted down the days until it came in the mail.  And it did!  They were super excited that we got it in the mail today!

Jared and Suzan, chomping at the bit to make some loom bracelets!
The girls watch as Jared makes one

I will say that it took us some time to figure out the loom, e.g. how to loop on the bands, which way to pull the bands over.  I think Jared has mastered the "beginner" one.  I tried, thanks to the manufacturer's how-to tutorial videos, to make an"advanced" one for Bethany...and it turned out!  It's definitely at Jared's age level (9).  The girls (5)?  Eh, not so much.  However, they can pick out the colors and place the bands on the loom.  I just have to maneuver the hook and loop the bands over.

We have already made a bracelet for each kiddo.  Suzan has been asking me ALL DAY to now make another one ;)

I'd say it's a hit in our home here! :)

Another lost tooth!

By Bethany :)  Just this evening, before bath time.  It's her third one now. Yes, she is definitely giving Anna a run for her money!

It's a top tooth, next to the front one she lost earlier.

Man, the Tooth Fairy better start taking out some loans, get a better interest-accruing account or something for these girls losing their teeth!  That and I heard Paul talk about the Tooth Fairy's request for a personal, reserved, parking spot at our home.  You got that right! ;D

Bethany lost another tooth!

Her second tooth.  This bottom tooth of hers was barely hanging on in her mouth.  She pulled it out, all on her own.  Go Bethany! :)

Bethany lost her first tooth!

Finally!  Someone else has lost a tooth ;)  Bethany.  She lost it the same day Anna lost hers, but just after dinner.  It was barely hanging on! ;P

Needless to say, the Tooth Fairy will be busy at our house this evening ;D

Anna lost ANOTHER (5th) tooth!

Yes, this crazy girly lost, yet, ANOTHER tooth today!  Her 5th!  I can't believe it.  Anna's not going to have any teeth left to chew her food with ;)

She lost it at school, while I was there volunteering in her class.

Bethany Helper

Bethany is a good little helper!  She LOVES to help Mama and Dad with anytime.  Here, she helped with dinner this evening (putting butter on the broccoli).  Of course, she jokingly tries to lick the buttery butter knife ;)  I had to tell her to "wait until all plates have been buttered." :D  Oh...and I usually never have to ask her to help.  She just jumps in all on her own - sweet girly!
