Fun...Fall...Playing Hooky...

Disclaimer: My brain is frozen and my hands are numb with cold (how will I make it through winter?!!!), so I dredged up this post from the depths of the draft dungeons of my blog. Forgive me. And, wasn't all that long ago, so you don't need to worry about cobwebs or mildew or anything. /End Disclaimer.

I let my kids have the day off.

We played in the woods and hung out with California cousins.

Aywah spirits were released (I have no idea if I even spelled that right...but, apparently, milk weed seeds look like something from the Avatar movie. I wouldn't know...I'm not cool enough to have seen that movie.).

CA uncle taught the kids the lizard. Or upward laying dog, or something.

Baby girl can't possibly imagine leaving her "pack pack" at home...even tho I end up carrying it 97.4% of the time.

There was lot's of giggling and bonding amongst the children.

I felt left out without my husband walking by my side.

CA cousins are their dads.

Sometimes, when you think about where you are supposed to put your tongue, it just doesn't really fit anywhere.

Playing hooky...everyone should do it!

I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

And this story ...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;) So, you can thank her...I guess. Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
