I’m No Longer a Wordless Wednesday Virgin!


Yep, it’s my first time doing this, so go easy on me people.  You know I don’t do wordless, but I’ll try and keep it short!  When you’re through here, go visit Dixie and check out all the other WW posts!



Mikayla, at 7, Madison at 3, as flower girls in cousins David and Tajha’s wedding.

Utah, 2004

Here’s my sweet Madison this past December, 2008, at 7 years old.  Ain’t she cute?




I mean, come on.  How could you not love that face, right?

Picture 037



But then this happened.  Her baby tooth fell out and this is what grew in.  A tooth in the exact shape of a candy corn!  Now aptly called her “snaggletooth”.

Picture 011Boy, these macro shots really mess up the appearance of a face, don’t they?

So anyway, the other front tooth finally fell out and now, alongside her snaggletooth, she’s got a humongous adult tooth coming in.  Perfectly square.  I do believe there’s some cosmetic dentistry in her future, don’t you?

That was only 190 words.  Not too bad, right?

Pssst! If you love me, you might love my sister more. Go visit her at Jill's Believe it or Not, and tell her I sent you!

    Hello Justine
    Welcome it's only my 2nd time, and I must tell you I thought I would get kicked off for talking also... but I didn't and Miss Dixie is oh so kind.
    Candy corn tooth? never heard of that one...but then I'm from Canada LOL

    Love Claudie

    Beautiful Children, love the face painting and missing teeth. LOL..you know they are starting to grow up when they start losing the baby teeth.

    Brayden's teeth were enourmous when they first appeared....after months of him walking around looking like a jack-o-lantern!!!

  • Anonymous

    I think that may have been your shortest post ever.

    Goo yob Justine.

  • Ginger

    Ahh, Justine, your girls are so cute. Teeth seem to do what they want to, don't they? My granddaughter just had 2 permanent teeth pulled and 2 more to go, for her braces. They were coming in way too high.

  • Life on Bonnie Lane

    Candy corn tooth or not, your daughter is still beautiful...both of them!

    I recently posted a pic of my son with a real piece of candy corn in his mouth! Can't remember which post though.


  • Carla

    she's so cute! With or WithOUT teeth:)

  • Picket

    lol You doodlehead....asking you to do 'WORDLESS' anything is like asking me to give up my frogie....it ain't happening! lol lol But I loved the pics of your beautiful girls! Have agreat day sweetie!

  • Paris

    hahaha...YOU? Wordless Wednesday? hahahaha =)


    Love you girl!! =) xo

  • Lynda

    What little sweethearts you have there! Happy WW!

  • Mrs. B. Silly

    Whoa, that's a lot of words for a "wordless" post! Poor little Madison and her snaggletooth. Cosmetic dentistry is a beautiful thing. Katie wouldn't have her million dollar smile without some gum surgery and braces!

  • Chandy

    Very cool pictures of such darling girls!

  • Anonymous

    Oh boy, I remember those awkward tooth years. When the teeth first come in, they're gigantor teeth and it takes YEARS for their face to catch up with them. I felt so sorry for my kids during that time.

  • Michelle

    Welcome to the club! You kept it pretty short! lol I usually have to say a few words also. Cute pictures. My middle is becoming snaggle tooth also. You lot to love it! She is a cutie!

  • Shannon

    Braces are in my oldest's future... sigh. I'd better start saving my pennies now!

  • Jason, as himself

    I knew you wouldn't be able to do it!

    But the photos are cute and the commentary as entertaining as usual.

  • Anonymous

    Your girls are gorgeous! You did super great chica on this your first WW!!

    Happy April Fools day,

  • SchmeckyGirl

    OMG! You're such a cheater! Yes, it was LESS WORDS but I don't think that's what it meant.

    I think both your girls are beautiful. Hopefully those teeth will improve somehow. lol.

    Hey you used my Snaggletooth on her??? lol.

  • Secondary Roads

    No corn on the cob for snaggletooth. You'll have to give her ice cream instead. Can I have some too?

    Jill sent me. 8-D

  • ~♥~ Monica S

    Teeth are pretty unpredictable.. I have a nephew with just ONE front tooth.. the other one just wont come out!....it has been years!

    The girls are very cute!


  • Leah

    Cute pictures. You are funny. :)

  • Ann

    I must say that is the first time I've seen a candy corn shaped tooth!

    It makes her smile that much sweeter (Awww.. :-> )

  • santamaker

    Justine, just what is it about the word "wordless" that you don't understand? LOL......
    I have two words for you: just adorable!

  • Shelia

    Justiney! Hi and how are you! It's so glad to be back and check up on you! Wordless Wednesday, huh? Love those little girls and little snaggle tooth! ;)
    Naw, I snap in any restaurant! I don't care! Mr. Precious just thinks I'm funny! :) I guess I am pretty hilarious! Maybe not as hilarious as you, my friend! ;)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  • Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

    Awwwww! Love the pictures! I can't be wordless much, either... ;)

  • Ms Cupcake

    Good morning!

    Checking in from sits. It's FRIDAY!!!! Yay!!!

    Have a great weekend.

  • nikkicrumpet

    I think they decided to ban you from WORDLESS Wednesday for life!!! And your girls are so darn cute. But she is going to get familiar with a dentist I have a feeling. Weird how those teeth are so different. I guess it will give her sister something to mock her about when they grow up and get blogs!!!

  • Sara's Sweet Surprise

    I can't believe I missed the "What is it" post. I'm soo good at it. I guess I'm an unfair advantage with my skilled sleuthing talents.

    Your girls are soo beautiful in their formals.
    Summer corn on the cob may be a bit tricky for those toothless grins this BBQ season. Hopefully they'll sprout some new nubs by then.

    Yup, I forgot to change the date on my post. I was a bit frantic cause I was receiving visitors on Thursday (for foodie Friday)who mistook the old for the new.

    I saw your new baby on your picture profile. Does that mean she's home?

    Sweet wishes,

  • sue

    Awwww the girls are so beautiful, teeth and all, LOLOL!!!

  • Anonymous

    Aw...poor snaggle tooth! But she's a kid, it'll be cute for awhile and then some dentistry can fix it right up!

  • Painted Groove Girl

    I'm shocked. You're hilarious. Lavenderchick told me you were ... but after laughing at Lavenderchick most of my life, my standards are pretty high... Great blog!!!
