Christmas Eve 2009

Santa Claus just might bump into the Tooth Fairy at our house tonight! I hope that doesn't cause a tear in the make-believe time space continuum... I may be mixing my metaphors here. Actually we are just excited to see what extra special present the Tooth Fairy brings if you lose a tooth on Christmas Eve.

Poor Jake, this tooth has been ready to come out for a week or more, but he was very nervous to wiggle it too much or eat with it or anything that would help it come out. I woke up this morning to him standing next to my bed with a set and resigned expression. "Okay, let's get this over with," he said. So I pulled it out thinking, "I did not get enough sleep last night."

I was up into the wee small hours of the morning finishing and wrapping Christmas presents. But the good side is that I am all done and can just enjoy Christmas Eve Day, the party at Pa Dave's tonight and go to bed early tonight. And I won't be trying to hide from the kids to wrap things up.

Way to be prepared, Chrissy! We may get a visit from the tooth fairy here, too. The fairy folk will probably be glad to consolidate their trips as our houses are so close in proximity. Your comment about the make-believe space time continuum made me laugh. Merry Christmas!

Imagine that, Jack lost a tooth as well Christmas Eve. We were thinking how cool it was to have Santa and the Tooth Fairy in one night. Jack thinks that is pretty cool that Jake lost his as well.
