Halloween and Pumpkin Carving

Today is Halloween. It is also cold and snow, so I didn't take the kids trick or treating. But we did go to Trick or Treat Town in Anchorage on Saturday. The kids had fun getting candy there. Before we left to go I took pictures of the kids in their costumes. So cute!!!

Friday we carved pumpkins. The kids had sooo much fun! Here are the pictures from both.

Jackson is 8!!!!

So I am late getting this posted. Blame it on the fact that I work 10 hours.

Last weekend Jackson had a friend over. Sadly his friend could only stay for an hour, so we made the best of it. We made personal pizzas, they made paper airplanes while the pizzas cooked. They ate, and then we did presents and cake. Over all Jackson had a fun time with his friend!

On his birthday, we went out for dinner. Jackson was able to open a few more presents. Then he and I went to the primary Halloween party. Now the pics from both nights!

Changes always changes

Well this week has brought some good and indifferent changes. On Tuesday I deiced that I needed to do something with my hair. I have been just pulling it up into a ponytail every morning. I do that because it is easy. So when I got home from work I took Jackson to Scout (which btw was his first night and he LOVED it). While he was at scouts I went to Great Clips to get my hair cut, but the wait was an hour, and there was no way I could wait that long. So I ran into the store next to it and got a few things, including a box of hair color. When we got home from scouts I colored my hair. It is a lovely strawberry blonde. I love it. Then Wednesday I got a text from someone I work with, asking me to come into the office for a schedule change. I knew that one of my individuals was going to be getting discharged from the program, so I didn't think much of it. When I got there on my lunch I found out that I will be doing full time with a young man who is deaf. My hours are now 7am-5pm. On my way home that night I stopped at Great Clips again and was able to cut my hair. It just above my shoulder and layer really cute. I love it too. I still need to get a pic of it...maybe today and I will post it later.

We also got a new phone this past week. So I went through my cell and took off pictures. I will post some of them on here. Many are from the summer and I just didn't get the up. I am also putting up pictures from a hike I did along the coastal trail in Anchorage. There are also pictures of the geese that are around the library. I just enjoyed taking pictures of them.

OK picture time!!!!
