Birthday Cookies!

I've always been intrigued by smartly decorated sugar cookies so when Kyrie & I were shopping a few weeks ago at our local craft store and discovered a crown cookie cutter, I decided it was time to try my hand at them for Kyrie's birthday party!








They really don't take THAT long to bake!

I figured since Dalayna had hangman on her blog, I could have tic-tac-toe!

More hair!






So I've always had a thing for hair. I secretly would have loved to learn all the techniques for cutting and styling hair that they teach in cosmetology school - the rest I could do with out though!
After Trey's bath this morning, Jim was commenting on how cute his hair looked all slicked back... that's all it took! I decided to try something different with it since it really doesn't want to part and be combed over to one side or the other. It was kind of curly when he was a baby so it's got a nice texture to it but I wasn't sure what to do with it.
I got it wet, combed it up and cut it on top with the scissors, then gelled it. Isn't he cute?! After about an hour of him playing, it all leaned in toward the center, and he had a cute "natural" mohawk. We've always joked about his mohawk because he had a very definite one about a year ago!

Nice hair!

Kyrie got some new hair clips from the house fairy last week, and she's been very "into" doing her own hair. After she pulled them all off the cardboard, she informed me that SHE was doing her hair today and that I couldn't help! Here's what she came up with! (except she DID ask for help getting the hair sticks in the back - she couldn't get them to stay!)

Boy on the run

2 weeks ago I took the kids to the park in hopes of getting some nice pictures of them while the flower gardens are still in full bloom. The weather was beautiful but I didn't take Trey's "won't sit still" into account! The second I got him situated and got behind the camera, it was time to run! He loves looking at the picture as soon as I snapped it but he's so impatient that he doesn't even wait for me to "snap it" anymore! It was a fun evening anyway, and I DID get some pictures that captured his personality! That's what it's all about, right?!
