Braces!

Now that Nathan's bite is fixed, the orthodontist wants to make sure the rest of his teeth come in straight. This past week, they put braces on just his front 2 teeth. They will push his teeth together. Then, when his 2 lateral teeth want to come in, they will have enough room to slide right in. The hopes are that if there is enough space he won't need major braces on all his teeth when he's a teenager. So far, he said they hurt a little the first day and don't hurt a bit now! So much easier than that expander and headgear he had to wear for 6 months! 


Here is the before picture of his teeth. 

He needed a new glasses prescription, and this time, we got him the kind that turns dark outside.

Snow Mountains

Just needed to throw up a picture of the kids running across the snow mountains in the church parking lot. 

Cascade Mountains

Jeremy and I went to Seattle last week and I took some pretty pictures of the drive. 





We went the Snoqualmie Falls way and made a quick stop by the falls. It was 45 degrees so I thought it would feel warm compared to the 10 degrees it was at home. Yet it somehow still felt really cold? 





Bangs

Elizabeth has been begging me for bangs for a while. They will take a bit more maintenance, but hopefully her hair is straight enough they will lie flat and not be too much to work with. Here she is with her new bangs.
