it is really almost march?

i don't know about you, but i have been in a time warp for the last month. we had a very nice visit with dh home...and it was very sad to take him back to the airport. and in a few days, the tears will be more infrequent and we will find ourselves back in a routine again.

here are some pics of some of our winter break activities...

we took the girls sledding several times...we all had a blast! of course after i busted my butt on a huge bump in the hill and it reminded me exactly how OLD i am!

then we took them bowling and ella did a victory dance everytime she threw the ball down the lane.

and finally i convinced dh to let me use him as my guinea pig to work on my low light photography. he was such a good sport. and it was so nice to have a subject actually sit still for a photo! lol!

today we are off to gather supplies to make leprechaun traps...the girls are SO excited to do this. if you are interested in getting ideas, pick up this months issue of Family Fun magazine. they have several cute ideas!

the haircut

(click to enlarge)

journaling reads:

It's called the "dorothy hamill" haircut, and if you were a girl in the late 70's. early 80's you might feel my pain. My mother thought this was a cute look for me.

I have no idea what she was thinking!

There is nothing cute about this haircut...unless its on Dorothy Hamill herself.

And yet this was my haircut for a long, long time. Yes, i hated it. Yes, I felt like I looked like a boy.

This was NOT a good look for me. Not everyone can pull off short hairstyles. Not everyone should either. As a mother of 2 girls, I have taken it as my mission to prevent this tragedy from reoccurring. I'm sure I will have the opportunity to scar my girls in another way. Thats just life i guess!

a spark of creativity

and some time...and the result is...

October afternoon is the manufacturer of my absolute favorite paper lines. i could work with these papers and products and nothing else ever again. since CHA a few weeks ago, the company has been busy promoting their new lines coming out and having lots of fun contests too. they were holding a sketch contest and when completed your name gets put in the hat for a fun stamp set...just twist my arm! lol!

so here's my take on their sketch. thanks for looking!
