Yes, it was a tooth party in our house. Vivienne had a loose tooth that she boldly pulled out as soon as she realized that it was a bit jiggly. Can you believe that she once actually tied her tooth to the door knob and closed the door? No door required this time, but she sure knows how to get the job done!
The kids decided to make a cake in celebration. This love of baking seems to have been inherited by me. The girls found a recipe for birthday cake and then modified it to include grated carrot, and anise extract instead of vanilla in the batter. They insisted on making it by themselves, so I did nothing but turn on the oven and put it in to bake. Then they topped it with a lovely (very) vanilla whipped cream frosting. The cake turned out wonderfully moist and delicious! Then the kids got dressed up in their finest attire, dressed the cake with candles, and had a proper tea party. It honored the missing tooth for Vivienne, the loose tooth for Mia and the new molars for Jasper. Everyone got to join in the party!
three cheers for the tooth fairy!
