When we were taking Bella to the nursing home, I broke a tooth on a chocolate chip in a DQ blizzard. On December 30th, I finally had time to go in and get it looked at. One root canal and 2 crowns later, I am still wearing the temporaries.
Then 2 weeks ago when I took the kids to the Children’s Museum, I broke a tooth on a chocolate chip in a chocolate chip cookie. Today I made it in to the dentist. This time I only needed to have 2 teeth rebuilt – no root canal!
My dentist recommended I give up chocolate chips and start eating nice, soft chocolate cake! A dentist that recommends chocolate? What a good dentist!

Because of Martin Luther King Jr Day, the girls had off school. Kris took them to the Houston Zoo! Sammi and I stayed home and finished her schoolwork for tomorrow – she did not have today off. Trouble with having kids in multiple schools! :) Sammi was OK with it, though. She knows she gets days off that the other girls don’t get.
Looks like they all had fun! One funny – Kris and Becca told me that when Joy saw the cheetahs, she signed “cat” and said, “Hi, kitty!” Cute!

It was so cold in Houston – that is solid ice in my bird bath! I’m glad the horrible cold spell is over.
The kids at the park
Guess who learned to ride a two wheeler?
Then on Thursday night we went down to the Children’s Museum.
I loved this series of Joy! She’s growing up so fast!
My girls as TV reporters!
