A couple of weeks ago, Jeremy wiggled her tooth and decided that it was time for the tooth to come out. So, he got some dental floss and tied it around her loose tooth. Piper was very nervous and did not want Jeremy to pull her tooth out. She was afraid it would hurt. With one quick tug, the tooth came out. The expression on Piper's face was priceless as she realized the tooth was out. It went from a scared and nervous look to an extremely surprised look. We recorded it with our video recorder, but unfortunately my computer does not have the correct connection for me to be able to pull it off the video recorder.
I do have a picture of my beautiful girl's new smile, though. You can see the new tooth already growing in!Piper was very excited that the Tooth Fairy was going to come that night and put something under her pillow. She did not know what the Tooth Fairy was going to leave her, but she was still excited about putting her tooth under her pillow. The tooth fairy left Piper two gold dollars under her pillow. Piper was so proud of those two gold dollars. She thought they were quarters at first. When it was time to go to school, I asked Piper if she wanted her coins in her piggy bank. She said she wanted them in her jewelry box and put under her pillow. She didn't want Finn or Seven to get them.
Piper is already working on a second loose tooth. It should be coming out pretty soon. She is excited to lose another tooth!

It was VERY cold that day. The temperatures were in the 30's. If you have never been to the Arch before, there is a very long walk from the parking lot to the Arch. It might not have actually been that long, but with the temperature being as cold as it was and an arctic breeze blowing, it sure seemed like a looooonnnng walk. We walked as fast as our legs would carry us! And for those of you wondering, no, I was not wearing by beloved flip flops. I was wearing shoes and socks, like I had been wearing for the past two weeks, due to the cold temperatures that Texas was having. If you think I am making up how cold it was, look at the Mississippi River. It runs beside the Arch and had pieces of ice floating down it and along the edges!
There were a couple of these signs inside the Arch at the top.
Here are some views out some of the windows from the top of the Arch. Pretty cool!
Jeremy and Rilian inside the arch of the Arch. You can see the other tourists looking out the windows. Yes...we were tourists.
Rilian loved looking out the windows! He just layed there and watched the world go by.

I had to put two pictures of Rilian on this post with him on his dragon blanket because he looks different in each picture. He has a big smile on his face in this picture.
When I had taken these pictures, Rilian had only gotten as far as pulling up to his knees. Now, he can pull up and stand on his feet, while holding on to something.

Here is Seven with his green frog umbrella and wearing his frog rainboots.
Piper posing with her ladybug umbrella and wearing her Hello Kitty rainboots.
Jeremy got the bottom part of the snowman started and Finn wanted to help. I guess when trying to kick the snowball didn't work to move it.... He decided to push it instead.Bottom part of the snowman is in position, right in front of our neighbor's shabby fence that they don't want to replace.
What a beautiful snowman, or should I say snowwoman! Unfortunately, we had to put a different head on it. This beautiful face would have gotten too cold if we left it outside for very long.The completed project. Carrot nose, leaf eyes, and leaf eyebrows.
