It's Monday!

I cut Julia., Anna, and Anastasia's hair the other night.  But first Julia let Anna practice by cutting off a few inches of her hair.
Anastasia is tickled pink with the way her hair came out.
"Who is going to give Mama a haircut?" I asked.  Wanting a change, I drove to the first haircut place we found and voila-- here is what $16 got me!
Honestly I feel like a million bucks with the new do so the money was well worth it!
One of my kids said, "Mom now you look young!"

Today two of the girls baked banana muffins.
Of all things they forgot the flour!

This picture is such a big deal.  Dennis now drinks through a straw like it is no big deal.
But little does he know-- It is a huge deal... a big milestone in his life.

I came home from taking Caleb to the dentist to see Annalyn dressed like this.
Looks like Jack Sparrow!

Here is the back of Alex's head.  It is about healed.  I gave him a trim all over last night so that the back would not look so obvious.
In another month he'll be good as new!

Galina can now make wonderful bread all by herself!

  2. Love the muffins!!! I can laugh - we've done that sort of thing at our house enough times! :) Don't worry, ladies, you'll be laughing about it for years!

  3. Go Dennis! I remember so clearly the first time my son was able to use a straw. He still struggles with rigid ones from water bottles, but he can use the normal ones just fine. Hooray!
