Lincoln Looses

So this Thanksgiving turned out to be a great one, we had my brother and his family down and then my sister and her husband came over along with my Grandpa and Grandma so we had a full house and since Erin made all the food on Thanksgiving we had a lot of AMAZING things to eat!  This year, our 9th wedding anniversary also happened to fall on Thanksgiving, which seemed to give us even more to be thankful for.  Also, on the very same day we had another life changing event!  Lincoln lost his first tooth!  And when I say "lost" I mean it literally.  As I  tightened the knot around his tiny loose tooth it popped right out of his mouth and went flying, we spent over 30 minutes looking for it and in that time I realized that I needed to give that bathroom a good scrub down.  Anyway, Mike finally found it and it was safely tucked under his pillow.  Then morning came....   as Lincoln showed me the envelope that the tooth fairy had left him he showed me the little note, and the beautiful gold dollar coin and that was it.  I was surprised because with Jackson the tooth fairy had always left his tooth for him to take care of and it was always wrapped up and labeled for him.  I *know* that the tooth fairy would have done the same for Link, so were was his tooth?!?  We searched and searched and finally Link said "I just think the tooth fairy doesn't like me"  Well, we had to find it so the boys cleaned and I searched and I finally found it, 3 days later, in the little garbage can in their room.  That tooth is such a stinker!  Here is Link, he is happy to have a hole in his mouth that he can fit a straw through.

Jack is a Genius

Uncle Stew: "Jackson, I don't think that you are supposed to jump on the couch."

Jackson: "It's ok as long as my Dad doesn't see."

Me: "Nice."

Happy Thanksgiving!

a conversation

So yesterday we got Jack all set up with his own email account.  He has been asking for months about this and I tried to hold off as long as I could because he is, after all, 7 years old.  He has had a great time checking his mail and writing to his grandmas and us.  The following is the first email conversation we had.....
