How My Dog Pulled My First Tooth

By Riley McNabb

On December 29th, I woke up with a loose tooth. My very first loose tooth! I wiggled it and wiggled it and by the next day I was ready for it to come out. It was so wiggly that I couldn't sleep! So I tied a string to my little loose tooth.

Then I got a Scooby Snack (that's what we call doggy treats) and called my dog, Lola Roo, to give me some help with my wiggly tooth.

She saw the Scooby Snack and was happy to be of assistance. So I tied the other end of the string to her  doggy collar.

And then I stood really still with my chin up and closed my eyes while my Mommy threw the Scooby Snack. Lola went charging after it and pulled my little tooth right out!!! I couldn't believe it worked!!!

But it really did work! LOOK! My tooth is gone!!

And if you look closely you will see it is still tied to the string. (in my hand)

Lola Roo is the GREATEST dog EVER!

And that is the story of how my dog pulled my very first tooth on December 30, 2010.

Lets Build A Fireplace For Santa!

Are you one of the millions of households without a fireplace? Do you have to answer every year how Santa will get in the house if you don't have a fireplace? Well then just do what we did and make one!  Here we have an ordinary cheapo book case turned backward exposing that oh so lovely and attractive cardboard backing. Let's fix that shall we? Go grab up some black acrylic paints and get to work.

 Or put that kid to work, after all, the kid is the one that keeps asking how Santa will get in the house  right?

Now if you have lots of random stuff laying around like me, you will have some left over stone patterned wallpaper. If you don't, just get some construction paper and cut it into brick shapes and glue them on like so.

Next you have to build your fire. We used an old metal basket and filled it with partially burned wood from our outside fire pit and cut up some yellow and orange foam paper. How awesome is THIS?!

Now you must decorate your mantle and of course hang your stockings by the fire. Just not too close. No one likes their stockings on fire.   

And voilĂ !!! Now you have a fireplace and Santa will have somewhere to enter the house each year with lots of toys for the little ones Christmas joys! 

Stay tuned for our next project. We will have to make some pretend marshmallows and sticks because roasting cheesy poofs by the fire is just plain..........HILARIOUS.

Christmas Breaks are AWESOME.
