The tooth fairy was doing double duty at our house last night. Just as Jacob was getting ready for bed, his second front tooth fell out. He had been wiggling it earlier and we knew it would come out anytime. He was humored by the fact that he could no longer whistle.

All I want for Christmas is my...wait, that's a long time to wait. Here is Jacob sans his two front teeth. You can also see that we are going to need some orthodontic work on those bottom teeth.
We have an old pill bottle that has been decorated with stickers that we put teeth in to put under the pillow. It is easy for the tooth fairy to find and a rolled up dollar fits nicely into it. If you look closely, you will he in his left hand his pearly white tooth.
Well after Jacob's tooth came out, this inspired Nate to get busy wiggling his loose tooth, his second bottom tooth. And lo and behold, it fell out too. So here is Nate sans his two front bottom teeth. They really make a cute pair now.
And since we didn't have two tooth fairy pill bottles (who would have thought we'd need two the same night?) Nate got a plain bottle that I tore the label off. Good thing I had an extra. I think I will let them put their names on then now, lol, and Nate can decorate his. If you look closely, you can see Nate's itty bitty tooth in his right hand.

The tooth fairy was quite generous last night too. Maybe it was because she saved gas snagging two teeth at one house. Or maybe, it was just that there were two boys and two teeth, but she gave them each two dollars. They were both very happy this morning. Now, a question for you: What does the tooth fairy do with all those these?

The tooth fairy had it pretty easy I'd say! Nothing like losing teeth...and if I remember correctly that happened at our house long ago too :)

I found the Shrinky Dinks at Michaels. They are in the scrapbooking section next to the rubber stamps...sort of a weird place for them. I've ordered them directly from and you can buy them in bulk there. Good luck!

The tooth fairy was busy...she was at our house too! And she left $2!
