This is virtually the same way we celebrated Christmas in Huntington Beach when I was a kid but with snow instead of sand and surf. Beautiful, wish you were here!

Tonight Jackson came running up to me crying. I could hardly make out what he was saying. "I lost my tooth, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to." I spent quite some time explaining to him that at his age teeth just do that. I tried to reassure him by having him think back to when Jordyn was losing her teeth, just about the same age. He finally calmed down and I asked him if he had noticed that it was wiggly. He started to cry again and said, "No it wasn't loose, when I bit the lego it just flew out... Ah, Ha! Now I understood why the tears and remorse. Biting the Legos to get them apart- big no, no at our house. Oh well, what do you say at this point. I think he learned a valuable lesson. It scared him pretty good. Probably won't catch him biting Legos for a while.
Later on that evening as he was laying in bed he said to me, "Too bad my first lost tooth I missed out on the wiggling." I giggled and he gave me a huge missing-tooth smile.

For all of you who knew an remember Grandpa Mohler you are well aware of his love of children, music and dogs. I am not sure if the love of dogs ran quite as deep as the others but I do remember his gruff voice (about the only time he was ever gruff) scolding the dog with an "I'll get the switch!" Can't you just hear him now. Well, we spent ?Thanksgiving in Klamath Falls and I was reminded a few times of Grandpa.
Janine tossed Simeon a turkey bone and someone remarked, "Wouldn't Grandpa Mohler love that!"
After dinner Uncle Danny got out his guitar and broke into "Had a Little Chicken." Once again mention was made of Grandpa, this time in reference to his harmonica playing and the kids gathering around him.
Then there were the dog tricks. I remember Grandpa balancing treats on Coalies nose just like this. That dog would sit with the treat on his nose until Grandpa told him "OK". He would then snap it up into the air and catch it. I got the biggest kick out of that.
He just would have loved all these kids!Got any Grandpa Mohler memories? Do share.
Well, I do not have a lot of time for blogging right now. I am busy sewing Christmas outfits and Christmas pajamas for the whole family. I just wanted to post a few new pictures so they don't get forgotten. Too cute to miss!
