9 Years...whaaaaaa?????

Seriously, where does the time go?

It seems like just yesterday that every time the house got eerily quiet, I could bet that something was being cut apart, no matter how high up I put the scissors. Comforters, doll hair, doll fingers...nothing was safe. Not even the sugar.


I vividly remember the stage that whenever my sweet boy had something he wasn't supposed to have, he would throw it as soon as you went after him to take it...which means that the time he picked up my parents' large glass vase and I yelled "DON'T CHASE HIM!!!" everyone knew to stay calm and act like nothing was awry as someone snuck up behind the little stinker and grabbed the vase out of his pudgy little 18 month old hands.

How is it that he is nine years old today?


This boy that makes my heart swell with joy? Who has a heart bigger than anyone I know...a strong, sturdy, "built like a brick sh*t house" body with a heart so soft and sensitive it belies his hearty exterior.


My child who was first to burst out the door and greet me upon my return from Florida. This boy who is full of questions and always observing, figuring things out, watching how things work.


He is so wonderful.

I recently discovered the perfect job for him...Lego designer. Kid is a Lego mastermind. The way his mind works, he's sure to be an engineer...put the two together, Legoland, here he comes!


Only, I think that's too far away. For him and for his mama. Right now he wants to work for his dad's business when he grows up, and that's just fine with me. It'll keep him close...and that's what I'd prefer!

This boy of mine is suddenly becoming more and more grown up...9! NINE! Do you know what 9 is halfway to? Ugh. Let's not even talk about it. The way the last nine years have flown by, I can't imagine how fast the next 9 will. :(

I love this boy so very, very much. More than he will ever know. He makes me proud and he fills my heart with joy.

Happy Birthday, Dubya!

We love you to the moon and back (and back and back and back and back...)

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 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!

You! Yes, YOU!! You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now. Tonight. Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post you know how to make it... But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later! Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story ! 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! You'll need this: And, this: You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out.
