Please Leave a Message after the Beep

I'm sorry I've been unable to blog lately, but life is busy. So here's one for you, Jenna! =)

Because I ALWAYS have had short hair, I have vowed not to cut Eveley's hair. She has very pretty long hair and it is really thickening up. Yes, this is a lot of work -- keeping it out of her eyes and free of syrup and spaghetti. But I just love long hair.

When I was at the store last week, I saw the infamous pink sponge rollers and decided to give them a whirl. I put them in Eveley's hair after her evening bath and was pretty sure she would pull them out before bedtime. But she didn't! She kept them in all night long, and this was the result on Sunday morning!

(Don't worry about the battle scar -- she got it by diving onto the bed and hitting a box hiding underneath the down comforter.)

Her favorite game right now is Hide & Seek. It's pretty funny. She believes that if she can't see you, then you can't see her either. So this is a typical hiding place for her...

 


She'll then count to 20 and yell, "Ready or not, here I come." But she isn't up on all the rules of the game. As I am walking through the house looking for her, I will say, "Hmm... Where is Eveley?" To which she responds, "I'm under the table!" We're still working on teaching her the concept of the game, but it is pretty funny.

Mr. Caleb is his usual smiley self. I just love this little boy. If it wouldn't have been weird, I would have named him Joy too. These kiddies remind me of my JOY!

The quilt is still in progress. But I'm getting closer. Crystal made it sound so easy -- you just have to be able to sew and cut straight lines, she said. Well, note to self: I can neither sew nor cut straight lines.

 



So, what do we have planned for the weekend? Glad you asked. I am leaving this afternoon for a women's conference with some girlfriends. How fun. It's just 2 hours away, but we're all very excited. My mom graciously came to visit so she can watch the kids.

The conference is featuring a ton of awesome speakers and entertainers. But the two I'm most psyched about --- Amy Grant and Candace Cameron. =)

And a few things I'm looking forward to this weekend:

*leaving the nursing bras at home
*taking a bag of York Peppermint Patties all for myself
*going to bed after 10:00 because I want to
*listening to something other than Madame Blueberry in the car

Can't wait!

Hope you had a GREAT time at the conference. it sounds awesome. I have MAJOR hair envy looking at Eveley' curls. I let Kate's grow for the same reason (because I cannot grow mine) and it still bother me so much that she cut it:(
