Teeth & Legos

Britney and Cody both had check ups and cleanings at the dentist yesterday at Children's Hospital. Why do we drive to Birmingham to see the dentist you ask. Well, the local yahoos were not nice. In fact one of them yelled and threatened Cody if he didn't open his mouth bigger!

The people are MUCH nicer at Children's. We've gotten the occasional person who isn't as chatty as we like, but they are very sensitive to the child's needs. I sure do like that.

Britney had the best time yesterday. She was paired up with an extremely chatty, happy person. They could be heard laughing and talking throughout the office :) Brit is still cavity free and will not need braces! We can get an ortho consult if we want to, but the issue she has is so minor it's not necessary. That kid has beautiful teeth!

Cody has no new cavities and four teeth are almost ready to come out! One popped out the day before yesterday. He is completely on track as far as losing his baby teeth.

They both have been saving their Christmas money. I don't think they had anything in particular in mind to buy...just not blowing through it. They were playing with and talking about Legos the other day and both asked if we could go to the Lego store while we were in Birmingham.


Look at how happy they are!

The new saying should be, "Like a Lackey kid in a Lego store"
Who needs candy?

I liked these guys. They have sumo man boobs!

We looked around for a long time before any decisions were made. It was nice to just be there, not feeling rushed and enjoying the whole experience.

They decided to combine their money to get one big kit to assemble together. But first, they created some mini figures. This one was Brit's favorite.
Then they looked and looked and tried to decide which kit to buy. There's so many! Then the final decision and purchase was made. We paid with cash and four different prepaid debit cards (they get for their birthdays and Christmas from our cousins in NJ...Thank you C & R!) with amounts ranging from $1.04 to $50.


Cody carried the bag part of the way but it was heavy!

Brit got a couple shots of the beautiful sky on the way home.

And then the fun began! I started dinner and they started playing :)

Here's their kit. It's a Medieval Market Village and reminds all of us of Medieval Times in Florida. It's SO cool!

They worked on it for a couple hours last night, breaking for Daddy hugs and dinner. I'm sure they'll be building in full swing today.
When we got home, my new power cord for my laptop was in the mailbox. It died on Wednesday so we bought one off ebay. I can't believe how quickly it got here! Yay!
