Rotten Teeth & Island Princesses
Gwen had a check up a few weeks ago and had her first cavity. Ever since then when I tell her it's time to brush our teeth she tells me that her teeth are already rotten. She has lost all hope at the tender age of 4. So today was an exciting day for her. She got her first filling. And her teeth are no longer rotten. Don't you love the crazy smiles when half your face is numb? She told me on the way home from the dentist that one cheek was asleep and the other one is having a party.
After preschool she had her first primary party too. She is a sunbeam, but since she is the only one in our ward, she kind of missed the whole transition into primary that you normally get and just went straight in with the older kids. Oh well, she doesn't know or care. She is independent anyway, she wouldn't even let me walk her all the way to the primary room.
*****The mystery photo in the last post is homemade princess cake. Don't try it. It is supposed to be a white cake with pink chocolate swirled through it. I dyed the chocolate orange for halloween, but I think I used the wrong kind. The outsides of my cake were getting harder and harder and the center was liquid...seriously....liquid. I finally took it out and thought I would salvage the middle by cutting out little star shaped cakes with a cookie cutter. I walked away for 5 minutes to let it cool and when I came back the whole thing was hard as a rock. I had to throw away the cookie cutter because it became part of the cake. So...does anyone know if it was maybe because I used the chocolate that you use to make candy? Because that hardens when it cools and then I stuck it in a hot oven??**********
