4500 Calories? Psh...


I ate that 4500 calories for breakfast! Twice!

For real...what is it about Thanksgiving that turns a stomach into a bottomless pit? I have no willpower.

Another serving of mashed potatoes? YES PLEASE!!

Another helping of stuffing? WHERE DO I SIGN?!

How 'bout another piece of pie? YES, YES, YES!!!

I need new pants. In a size 87, please.

But, man, oh man, was it worth it!

The Annual Football Game was a blast, with a shoulder injury (no, not mine...in case you were reading my Twitter feed from last night...) but nothin' else!

We played a mean game of charades:


I taught everyone how to make their crystal ring (okay, so I really didn't...they figured it out themselves...):

There were plays written by the tweens:


Baby Girls backlit by Christmas trees:


And siblings/cousins (to be?) ;) all snuggled up:


I love this time of the year...size 87 pants and all!

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here: Halo Braid Tutorial! Let me know how it goes!
I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other day...my 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 braiding...watch 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!

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
