New Haircut for Morgan

Morgan has been wanting her hair cut. So she went with Steve for a haircut. This is what she looked like before.....




...and this is after.


I think it looks very becoming on her. She is enjoying it swinging about her neck. :^) And trying different looks - bangs pulled back in a clip, pulled back in a band, parted in the middle, parted on the side, flipped up on the ends. The joys of girls!

Tonight was the girls' first swim practice for the summer swim team. They said weren't going to swim this year, but all their friends have been begging them to swim and yesterday the coach called wanting them to come back. So they have caved to the pressure. :^) This week practices are in the evening - next week they'll be bright and early at 7 a.m. Oh boy! This means I get to be team mom. Hurray. I'm so excited. :^/

Supper was Greek Pizza. I started with my standby, Roasted Chicken, Red Onion and Rosemary Pizza, then added fire-roasted red pepper strips, chopped marinated artichoke hearts, and garlic/herb feta in addition to the other ingredients. It was good, although Morgan announced she'd rather it not have artichoke hearts. She ate it anyway. I'm getting ready to go back for another slice. I thought it was rather tasty - artichoke hearts and all!

Here's another layout I finished (actually two of this layout - one for my book, one for Brooke's). The title says "it's all about the accessories" and the journaling says "a string of pearls and a hammer - what more does a girl need? Brooke 12-95" Can you tell I'm behind? :^D Anyway, this was another layout done with the Stampin' Up! Simply Scrappin' Kit Buttons, Bows, and Twinkletoes. I love those kits - for $12.95 you get a LOT of stuff. After six layouts, I still have stuff left over. I've challenged myself to use up the whole thing before going onto something else.

This is the first year that we didn't have synchronized swimming and while we missed it initially we have now come to really enjoy having our Saturday mornings to laze around or plan something for the whole day that we couldn't do before when we had synchro every Sat a.m. So.. HAVE FUN, team mom. I remember those days.!

That is my problem...

I keep buying stuff and I never use everything I have. We should have a swap night or something.... anything really. I'm going to take you up on that "getting together" thing.

I am so excited that we finally got to meet... your pic is on my blog!

Darling haircut for Morgan, just in time to lighten up for summer. Your girls are so lovely, Ginger.

Isn't it amazing how much older kids look once they get a haircut??? ;-)

Love the layout. I have photos from way back. My boys only have their first year albums completed.
