It has been a while that I have loved this black and white patterned pillow. I have not in real life found an actual pillow for my house but for right now I will do the next best thing. I will put it on my desktop.

My new do

I want to look like different person so I went to the hair dresser and said chop it all off. So she did. new do

I lost two pounds of hair that day from all the chopping and thinning. I know because the scale has told me so. It dries so much faster. Takes less shampoo. Best of all I actually want to do my hair.

Every Mom one needs to take the time for a good haircut so they can feel like someone new once in awhile.

Rose 3/29

Year 3 Week 29

Year3 week29

– I bought a pink fairy princess outfit for next Halloween. Rose 1- thinks that Happy Halloween is next week again and 2- wants to wear the costume now. I don’t think it will make it to next year.

– In Rose’s world everything happens next week or on Saturday. That is how time is grasped by a three yr old.

Charlie 0/31

Week 31

week 31

– Charlie is seven months old. He weighs 17 lbs. 12 oz. and is 28 inches long. This makes him 88% in height and 45% in weight. He might be tall and skinny but he has chunky legs.

– I had to trim his hair around his ears. It was a little tricky because he was interested in the scissors so he would not keep his head still.

The Poppies

Do you know why they sell poppies when you donate to the military? I had no idea till a few days ago.

In late 1914, the fields of Northern France and Flanders were once again ripped open as World War One raged through Europe’s heart. Once the conflict was over the poppy was one of the only plants to grow on the otherwise barren battlefields.

In UK at the Tower of London there is currently an awesome art insulation. The moat has been filled with 888,246 ceramic poppies, each poppy representing a British fatality during the First World War.

Looking forward to Christmas

Every where I look I am seeing great Christmas decorations. It is making me want to skip Thanksgiving all to together and start putting up the tree. I am really excited to put up the advent calendar that I made last year. I was surprised how much Rose even though she was only two loved moving the candy cane each day.
