buffalo wild wings and a lost tooth

we had dinner saturday night with mom and dad at buffalo wild wings. they've been going through a lot lately with meemaw's alzheimer's getting worse, so we wanted to get them out of the house. plus, mom's birthday was thursday so it was a perfect evening. while we were there cooper showed off his loose tooth...and of course my parents did what any good grandparents do..."i'll give you five dollars if you pull that tooth!" so the mission began. we cracked up laughing for almost thirty minutes watching cooper work the tooth. finally he let chris pull it. cooper was beyond excited to get the five dollar bills boppy had laying out on the, the thought of the tooth fairy visiting. we had a great time!

all i want for christmas is my two front teeth

cooper finally lost both of his front teeth. he's been refusing to let us pull them. it's like he thinks they're a limb of his body. as you can see from the picture the new teeth were already coming in, so we were all anxious for him to lose them.

he lost one on the top last week at church...right as we were walking in to the service. there was blood dripping everywhere and chris spilled his coffee. it was quite a sight. we were all laughing because were so thrilled he lost one. we had to put the tooth in one of the donation envelopes...careful not to accidentally put it in the collection plate.

the second fell out yesterday during manuel's game. carlo's little sister, anna, accidentally hit coop in the mouth with a soccer ball. as you can see, it was exactly what he needed to do the trick! he was so excited!
