Well...I'd love to say my Halloween was spent eating yummy treats and visiting family...but unfortunately I had to work. Next year....no matter what....that is what I will be doing. I have taught the last 3 Halloween's in a row...HOW RUDE! It's a good thing I love my students and enjoy my job....because missing a holiday is one of the worst things ever for me! I LOVE every holiday.
I am a teacher at Vatterott College in the Dental Assisting Department and "college-attending adults" do not get off school for "trick-or-treating"! DARN:) (Although I did notice on my calendar that we get off for Veterans day....stupid.) Thank goodness jaxson is too young to know the difference....or I would have had to take the night off! Instead I spent my Halloween teaching students how to chart Root Canals, Crowns, Bridges, Fillings/cavities, and any other problem that can occur in the mouth! FUN FUN FUN:) I also forced some of them to work on mounting x-rays...I am the worst! Anyhow....below is a picture of my little giraffe who came to visit me and my students during class! He was adorable.
I was the TOOTH FAIRY! A very stressed, worn-out, wind-blown, TIRED tooth fairy...but it was fitting since I'm a dental teacher. I bought some wings, a wand....and forced my husband to draw a molar on my cheek with paint 5 seconds before I ran out the door to work! HA HA.....he is such a good sport. (So am I for driving down the free-way looking like this!)
One of my evening students, Suzanne, brought her little boy Jonathan to class for a little bit as well. He just turned 1 and is just ADORABLE. He was a little turtle. It was soooo cute. I wish I would have gotten a picture of the back of his costume because he had this huge stuffed shell.....it was my favorite part. Jaxson LOVES other babies and he was laughing and squealing at him all night. The only thing is Jonathan can walk....and it was making jaxson frustrated that he couldn't get up and follow him:)
I look so disgusting.....It was a long day at work!
Jarom snapped this picture of me at my desk. I was grading paper after paper. Finals week is in ONE week and the preparations for it NEVER END it seems. At this point it was probably 9:30 p.m....with still over an hour to go.....
My little giraffe crawling around my classroom.
Kisses! Jaxson was giving jarom loves as they both hung out by the foot of my desk and kept me company for an hour. As you can see in the background from the candy wrappers....I had ditched my wings and eaten SEVERAL pieces of chocolate to keep me going!
Happy Halloween everyone!
p.s. my computer has a nasty virus! I am ticked. Everytime I open someone's blog a million pop-ups come up....and NAUGHTY ones:) I must have done something to deserve punishment....because I am a blog addict and it's killing me. I will have a LOT of catching up to do next week. I did see everyones halloween pics though.....I just can't leave comments! They were darling. Cute monkeys chels, LOVE the chicken channa, jamie...your lions were adorable, Tegan....peyton made a great cheerleader, Pam-Such cute little bugs:) I will hopefully get this thing fixed and be back checking the rest soon!
