That's sort of my excuse for not blogging lately, and the fact that March Break has come and gone and last week was just plain busy. So I have some catching up to do again ... as Rebecca pointed out ... "you haven't posted anything about my birthday yet!!"
For now I'm just going to start with a series of hair-do posts. Just some fun hair-do's that I've been doing lately. Mind you ... this is not a hair-do that I did. Rebecca's hair was long enough to donate for cancer patients and so she has chopped it off again at the end of December (see here for last time she did). Again the knots just got the better of us and we decided to give a break from trying to brush the tangles out ... she has beautiful hair, if only it wouldn't get so knotty. It does look wonderful when it's all done up, but I didn't always have time to find some hair-do that would last long enough to cut down on the amount of brushing required to keep it knot-free. I also love how this short hair-style looks on her, so I had not problem having her cut it off again.
Marietta enjoys having her hair long and doing her own hair, plus she doesn't have the knots issue, so she decided to stick with long for now, although she did hum-haw about cutting it for a bit. Now she's real glad she left it long because she gets Mom all to herself when it comes to getting her hair done ... and as you'll see in the next days she's been taking full advantage of that. I do enjoy trying new hair-do's, especially ones that last for days at a time, making it worth the effort put into it. I'm not creative enough to think of new ideas, but have been getting the ideas off the internet, sometimes with some modifications. There's enough good ideas out there I haven't had a chance to try think of my own. We've been having fun. So over the next days I'll post some of the "fun" hair-do's I've done in the last few months.
