Well, I think we're all unpacked now! The girls were helpful in their own ways! ;-)
This week we've been enjoying some perfect Fall weather in the backyard. We have been playing Tea Party every day. Here is a picture of Paprika with Devon's eldest daughter. These two really do go together like peas and carrots.
Ginger also loves playing Tea Party. It can keep her occupied for awhile. I took pictures, of course!
In other news...
During Ginger's nap today I decided to make a change. I cut my hair! What?! I know. Like 7 inches.
I managed to snap a "Before" photo- this is right when I got out of the shower, without make-up on...can't believe I'm posting this for the whole world to see! Haha.
I didn't mean to cut so much. I was planning on getting my hair cut for real next week (you know, at a salon), and I thought I would just play around with it and then the person next week could fix it.
But, being as I am not in the habit of cutting my own hair, I pulled the hair really taut and cut it- not realizing that it would spring, bounce, and curl up about 4 inches higher than I thought!
So, here is the "After"- I hadn't "done" anything to it- just let it dry on it's own (which, let's face it, is about all that's ever happening with my hair these days!)
I know this might shock you, but this is not the first time I've cut hair. I did it to myself when I was 5 years old (with the left-handed scissors, no less...and I'm right-handed). I also cut Mr. Mustard's hair for him every six months or so. You would think I would have gotten this out of my system by now!
I think next I am going to color my hair, which is really just a bad idea waiting to happen. (It's like giving a young child a book of matches). But, hey, I'm feeling adventurous, and looking for a challenge! Stay tuned...
