Big Boy Toothbrush

Yesterday was our 4th wedding Anniversary. Rich had to work until almost eight at night and wouldn't you know, our power went out! So, it was a cozy dinner for three at home . . . Dominoes pizza by candlelight! :) Which reminds me of that song by Phil Vassar,  "Just Another Day In Paradise"

So, tonight we will celebrate by going out to dinner.

Yesterday, we bought Robbie a "Big Boy" toothbrush to brush all seven of his teeth. ;)
This morning, our little guy proudly held onto his little beaver toothbrush and brushed away in the mirror with me.

"This brushing your teeth thing is hard work."
Mommy, showing Robbie how to brush.

And perhaps not the most flattering photo of me. Here is Robbie brushing my teeth with my toothbrush. I love the expression on his face in this photo. Really thinking! :)

I let him hold onto the toothbrush throughout the morning and we caught him in his room like this.

Love you cricket!!

Showing off those pearly whites!

 Ahh, now completely kissable now!!

Happy Friday Everyone!

Oh my goodness!!!! He could do a toothpaste commercial. I am so happy that he enjoys taking care of his little teeth. It will save him from having grueling dental visits.
I love that cricket!

You, Sara, HAM IT UP way too much. You always have had your vanity shots of yourself. Where is your Christian modesty and your rejection of vanity (of which you recently spoke) ?

Rich and Sarah Christensen said...

Dear "Naune"
Who are you to judge how much I "HAM IT UP ?"
Vanity is self conceit. My joy comes from my spirit which is the indwelling Holy Spirit of Christ. Jesus had fun, He gives us abundant love and joy. I love living life to it's fullest; because someone died for the price of that life.
Christian modesty is living for Christ and walking with Him, and allowing Him to use our lives. If you think I express vanity, SIMPLY do not view my blog. Perhaps you could work on your judgement issues.
Try to have a nice day!

Naune said...

Blah blah blah. Just how did Jesus "HAVE FUN" ? You are, my dear, an obvious vain person. You are NOT a model - your mouth is too large (physically). My days are fine, thank you.

Love that you call our little guy cricket. That is what everyone called my grandfather. It was his nickname.


Carla Irene said...

Also, I understand what you mean by referring to "the abundant life" and "joy" that we have through the I dwelling of the holy spirit. He certainly does carry us through even the darkest of times.. It is a bit of a mystery though, and I undstand why so many people don't . Please keep sharing the "fun" times, Sarah. Your blog really brightens my day.
