Pumpkin Carving

Tonight we carved pumpkins finally! Hailey wanted a "creepy" one and picked a traditional looking template, Lauren found a Dorothy and Toto and Todd found a scary one! I just helped!

Surprise: Both girls were great! No-one cried or whined or otherwise made me wish we hadn't started!

They are both excited for Halloween -

Lauren got her retainer today it was a tough afternoon. She cried when he asked her to say Mississippi (it brought tears to my eyes too). Then we took 3 U-Turns and headed back to the office after we left because she felt like it was going to fall out. Bless their hearts they are so KIND in that office and took her right back each time for Dr. Lindsey to check it - honestly it was just a "Lauren" thing - but they never told her that! She has been practicing saying Trick or Treat and Thank You and is feeling a little better about it.

Enjoy the photos:
