Halloween 2011

Pumpkin Carving

Mason didn't like the pumpkins when they still had all the seeds and gooey stuff in them.

But once they were cleaned out he warmed up to them.

Homecoming 2011

Brent Skabelund took Haley to Homecoming. They started with a fun day activity. They made boats out of cardboard and plastic and tried to make them float. Sounds weird but they had lots of fun doing it. Haley and Abby cheated and put a tire in their boat so it would float.

They had dinner at a big, fancy house. It was the aunt of one of the boys in their group. Then lots of dancing at two different dances. They finished off the evening with a walk around the temple. How perfect is that?

Masquerade Concert

She had to ditch the head dress because the beads made it hard to play.

Pulled Tooth

Jake went to the dentist yesterday for his regular 6 month checkup. They found a tiny bubble on his gum which means he has an infected tooth. They wanted to pull it and put a spacer in. I wasn't completely convinced so I contacted Josh and asked him if he would look at it. He got us right in. But after taking one look he said it needed to be pulled. I was bummed because I was hoping we could save the tooth. So I'm thinking in my head that we just wasted a trip coming all the way down here and wasted Josh's time who squeezed us in his already busy schedule. Then the next thing I know he whipped out the big Q-tip with the numbing gel on it. He stuck it in Jake's mouth and Jakes eyes went all big. In 5 minutes he had that tooth pulled. It was all so fast Jake didn't even have time to be scared. And no spacer needed...we could see the permanent on the x-ray right there ready to come down. So we walked in expecting a quick consult and walked out with one less tooth in Jake's mouth!

I just hope he still likes Josh after the numbness wears off and it starts to hurt.

Poor guy, not exactly something he wanted to do during his fall break.

Pumpkin Patch

We went to the Pumpkin Patch Monday night and I pulled out my camera to take pictures and my battery was completely dead. I was so mad! Luckily my mom had her small camera so I took a few shots...mostly of Mason.
