This is a picture from Christmas 2007. I remember that I had just gotten my braces off. And my Mom gave me a huge box of gum from Costco because I hadn't chewed gum in two and a half years. We had just gotten the kittens that year, Jack-Jack and Violet. I remember taking the picture we all laughed so hard trying to get the pets to cooperate. And I had such a hard time smiling because I didn't smile with my teeth with my braces on... so smiling with my teeth felt SO weird!
