Fun with Hair

Whew. So far 2012 has been pretty busy, and I don't see that changing any time soon. It's felt a little weird taking such a long blogging break. But it also means I have not been on the computer quite as much and that is probably a good thing.

Alanna's hair has finally grown out to a decent length to play with, and so for the last few Sundays I have gotten to sit her down in a chair and actually do something with her hair. It's fun!

Raking Leaves

I realize this will probably change one day, but my kids love raking and sweeping up leaves. They were such big helpers so I made a leaf pile for them to jump in. They had tons of fun with that. I am glad we have a tree big enough, with enough leaves to jump in.

Christmas Lights

I am not sure if you can even see them in the picture, but we actually put up Christmas lights this year. One strand of lights. They look good, a little dull though. Maybe next year colored ones.

Happy Birthday "Little Man"

After waiting 15 days past my due date I finally had my little boy (though I did not know what he was going to be). He is such a joy to me. He gives impulsive hugs and kisses, tries so hard to be good, but has a mischievous streak that reminds me so much of his uncle. (He looks like him sometimes too, especially that impish grin, or the innocent face).

He got to play his first soccer season this year and even though he is one of the smallest players on the field he is the top scorer on his team. Pretty good at defense too, being right there and ready to hurl himself in front of the ball to protect the goal. So fun to watch him grow and learn. He is just the best!!

I didn't think this shot was going to come out and it is a little dark, but for some reason I think it's the best shot I took all night.

Disney on Ice

Whoever thought about putting Disney on Ice together was a genius. Disney, which people love, combined with ice skating, which people love too and is wonderful to watch. I sure enjoyed it. I know my kids did. Asher said his favorite part was "everything". We had great seats, thanks to a wonderful discount, and had a wonderful evening.
