The One with Sunday Afternoon Carving

After church I was chillaxing on the couch watching X-Files while Chris was carving away. I took some pictures to document what will hopefully be his last time carving a tooth from wax. I love that he's still in his church clothes, tie and all. I guess it's good practice for the future.
Hands at work. I'd trust him to fill my cavities :)
(Good thing he finished carving when he did cuz a half hour after I took these pictures he sliced his thumb open cutting a potato!)
A blurry picture of his tool box.
Life is all good with a can of Mtn Dew.
Until a bird comes and knocks it over. Luckily it was empty!
Today Chris was watching the extended Lord of the Rings trilogy while carving. He must be watching something while he carves. He's a great multi-tasker.
These are some of the "easy" teeth he carved last trimester.
The tooth he carved today is one of the very biggest ones in the mouth and it's got three roots and lots of stuff to it (don't you just love my verbose dental vocabulary...).
I give it an A+++, or as USC calls it, an "R".

Love the teeth! Or tooth. I'm learning about the digestive system in my Anatomy class. I'm sure one of my friends would love the teeth to. She's trying to get into the dental assisting program. Wonderful to do to pass the time away on a Sunday. :)

I'm sure everyone is dying to know, so I'll just tell you. I'm carving tooth #3, the right maxillary first molar. And yes that is a cusp of Carabelli...

I was a dental hygienist before I became a stay at home momma. The teeth are definitely A plus ;)
