Brooke had her teeth cleaned at the dentist the other day. They decided, since two of her top teeth couldn't come in because of the baby teeth blocking them (the two teeth have been gone for a year), that they would pull the baby teeth out. So, Brooke was a trooper and got two baby teeth extracted. She did great, but didn't go back to school that day. The tooth fairy was extra generous, due to pain and suffering. :)
I can't believe my baby is three! It makes me sad (and want another baby just a tiny bit:)...but at the same time, there are things that are great about her growing up. For one, she is totally potty-trained (believe me, there was a time I wondered if it would ever happen). Paige is such a fun little girl with a personality all her own. She loves to snuggle, play with her baby dolls, sing songs on the radio (her favorite right now is "So What" by Pink :), laugh, EAT, talk on the phone, be treated like a baby, and sleep in. Most of all, I love that she usually has a smile on her face. I love this little girl!
I am finally getting some Halloween pictures posted (hey...it's technically before Thanksgiving!) Carly was a girl from India, Brooke was a Spanish girl, Macey was someone from Star Wars (sorry--I have no idea which character), Isaac was Anniken from Star Wars--when he was a boy, and Paige was Little Bo Peep. We trick-or-treated downtown, the kids did some door-to-door in the neighborhood, then we had family and friends over for pizza and x-box. I love when Halloween falls on a weekend!

On our way home from California, we stopped in Medford and visited Shane's grandpa, aka "Papa". He is 92 years old and as witty and spunky as ever! We had a great visit--all of the kids received a lot of attention from the residents at the retirement home. One little lady was going to kidnap Isaac if we didn't keep an eye on her! :)
