It's official! Our oldest got braces yesterday! Here's her before picture:

It took a little over an hour to get all the brackets and bands on. She chose pink and purple for her brackets. Go figure! She is looking forward to a new smile (one day). Having a friend over for the afternoon helped her not think about the pain, but she's hurting worse now. Said friend also ended up getting to spend the night because we are out of school for the fourth day due to snow. (I was surprised they called if off last night instead of waiting until this morning. The forecast was for icy mix turning to rain. Better safe than sorry!)

We're going to spend this day of "spring break" working on Christmas stuff. (Yes, I know it's not even Christmas yet, but we'll have to make these days up!)


  1. That smile will just get prettier as those teeth line up. Love it...but not the pain. That will get better, too:) Hugs to our gal...

  2. Hope the sore teeth ease up very soon - she has a beautiful smile with a little extra sparkle right now. Hugs!

  3. she is very cute, I hope her days of braces pay off...adorable creations here too....have a super weekend!

    enjoy *~*

  4. I remember the pain - but I'm still glad I did it - my teeth are much better (not just looking, but they function better!).



Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving me a comment!
