Fine Teeth & Posts of the Week

Just a few photos today since I have a larger than usual load of Posts of the Week. This is mostly because I'm a couple of POTW posts behind again but these are all from December and hopefully, you can refer back to them if the busy schedule of the season doesn't allow you the time to read them for now.

She laughs at everything you say. Why? Because she has fine teeth.
~ Benjamin Franklin

So who do you think has a finer, toothy smile?

This big guy?

Or this little girl?

two cuties
I'd say the adorable wee human, seen with her equally lovely sister wins - hands down.

And now, without further delay, here are the Posts of the Week. The icon below is yours for the taking if if your blog post is named as a POTW.

Love that bulldog. And the girls were darn gorgeous too!

The smile is great but the blue eyes are awesome.

Anonymous said...

Oh, she's precious, and I love that pacifier!!! Congrats to the POTW!

Ruth Hiebert said...

That toothy soother is rather comical. I can see many a father getting a kick out of that.

Rita said...

This really made me laugh! What a darling little one with a pretty big sister. :)

Lynne with an e said...

The baby's pacifier doesn't do a thing to pacify me! And the dog's toothy grin leaves me feeling doggone bullish. Or is that bulldogonish? While I enjoyed this post, it wasn't really something I could sink my teeth into with a toothsome comment. Will a foolish grin suffice?

yaya said...

The first pic is a face only a Mother could love..the second one a face every Mother would love! Love the pacifier!

Leave It To Davis said...

What darling little girls! And the bulldog is cute in his own special way!

Unknown said...

Thank you for the Christmas Wishes Hilary. I appreciate them so much and wish the same back to you.
Life has been crazy for the last few weeks and I am so far behind. The sentiment is real anyway.

Dear Hilary, lovely images, just did show the first one to the whole group here and it made them laugh.:)
So from my family to yours - Merry Christmas dear friend.;)

Sharon Wagner said...

What is up with bulldog teeth anyway? I think nature played a joke on them. Happy Holidays Hilary! I'll look forward to more photos and words of wisdom in the coming year.

Shammickite said...

I howled with "larfter" when I saw that little lady! I must admit I've been a very naughty blogger just recently, what with my internet going wrong and then as soon as it was fixed, the Christmas Variety Show kept me busy and now all the Christmas prep.... however I promise to be better in the future. So have a Happy Holiday season and all the bloggy best for 2013!

Mage said...

I will work my way through these in the next few days while thinking of you. Happy holidays to you. Hugs from here.

Joanna Jenkins said...
