So it's finally out! Whoohoo! Just in time too because the reason that it wouldn't go back into place was because the adult tooth is practically a fourth of the way out! Skylar is ecstatic with the new space in her mouth that accommodates a straw. She was also so ecstatic about the tooth fairy coming that she woke up at 5:30 this morning! Apparently, the tooth fairy had taken the tooth but left nothing under her pillow. After she & Nick sufficiently searched their bedroom and had also sufficiently woken the entire family up before 7 (way too early for us!!) we finally found the loot under her bed in the corner! Let's just say last night's tooth fairy (and I'm not mentioning his name!) may be out of a job for future tooth exchanges!

I don't know if I've mentioned this before but Skylar is in love!! Absolutely, without a doubt, in love. This is not a shock to us. She's been in love with Donovan Tong since birth practically. They are both convinced that their love will stay strong throughout the years and they will end up married.
On Saturday we headed up to the Hanamaikai's house for Kaipo's birthday party. It was a pirate party and my kids were so excited! We had some good food-yummy luau chicken- and a great time! It's always a good time with a house full of Hanamaikais! We promised our kids that we would stop by IKEA on the way back and see if they could get into the playland. By the time they got in they only got to play for 15 minutes but they loved every minute of it. IKEA has become our family's favorite store. Even Kade joins in screaming "IKEA!!!" when we pass it on the freeway!
On Sunday Skylar gave a talk in primary. Her subject was: The scriptures teach me about Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and how to return to them. She talked about when Jesus visited the Nephites and told them to be like their little children. She did really well on her talk. Skylar loves to speak in church-something she did not inherit from her mom!
Ben had work off on Monday and we went to yet another party for Dylan's birthday. We went to Chuck E. Cheese where it was crazy busy!! We had a fun time with the Tongs and the Hoens amid the chaos. We were sufficiently worn out by the time we got home and everyone crashed for a long nap. It was a great ending to a busy weekend!

Top 10 Mommy Crushes
We polled our married staffers and came up with this list of hotties:
Any and all firemen
The one dad at the playground
24's Jack Bauer
The "IT" guy at work
Steve, the former host of Blue's Clues
The UPS guy
Handsome gym guy
Your child's pediatrician
And let's not forget the hot celebrity daddies we all love.
So Ben is often at the playground, is the IT guy, was a UPS guy, loves to go to the gym, and has been told countless times that he looks like Steve from Blues Clues. Ben and I had a good laugh about this list. But I have to agree since I had a crush on Ben from the get-go!

Ben had his Scout's Klondike camp out on Friday night. I'm a huge fan of camping but this is the one time of the year that I am soooo glad that I don't have to go sleep in the snow. Ben has finally accumulated enough supplies that he stayed warm in the freezing cold. So I think he actually enjoys it now, but he'd never admit it!
After Ben got home on Saturday we took the kids to see the Veggie Tales Pirate movie at the $1 show. My kids have been totally into Veggie Tales lately. They're a little funky and Ben and I are both a little bothered about them not having arms to hold things (objects just float in the air next to them-a little disturbing) but at least they teach some good values. Afterwards we dropped Skylar off at BYU to go see the Living Legends dance concert with Ben's mom. It's a show that has Native American, Polynesian, and Latin American dances. It's really an awesome show-I wish we could have all gone-but the boys are too little. However, our little dancer absolutely loved it and loved having a Girl's Night Out with her Grandma Cammi!

But of course, it couldn't last! Ben had a LAN Party on Friday night. I got the kids ready for bed and started working on Nick's baby book (I'm soo close to being done! Finally!) Poor little Skylar came downstairs saying she didn't feel good. Then the throwing up began and lasted throughout the night. Nick also joined in around 5 am. So yet again another weekend of sickness! Nick's didn't last long but Skylar was sick through Sunday morning. I did let her go back to school today because she was feeling better and begged to. I hope she's okay and I hope that we're all done being sick!!!!
