Family Pictures

I have had a lot of family pictures done and like always I left a little frustrated with my kids and the photographer, but these pictures turned out pretty great! Thanks Gideon Photography!

My hair

I haven't set up the appointment, but I have been talking about donating my hair to Locks of Love for over a year.  I am sure that I have been touched many times by those with Cancer, but have never been close enough to observe the difficult process until recently.  Within the last 18 months I have lost 2 people that are very dear to me because of cancer.  I was also touched by a little girl in a ward that we were in named Brighton (you can follow her journey here) that I made the choice and gave myself a deadline.  I have never had the thought to donate my hair until this sweet girl shaved her head.  I was so touched that she was so young, but so strong.  So, tonight I asked my Thing 2 to take a picture of my hair before it goes to the chopping block in 2 weeks.  It doesn't show how long it is, but I don't think it has ever been this long before.  I am grateful for the opportunity to share with someone like Brighton who fought the fight and is winning! Stay tuned for the after shot.  I have the donation form in hand!!!!

Halloween 2014

We had some behavioral issues Halloween morning, so trick or treating was a little tricky and short lived.  I wanted to keep walking around, but James had already rode his bike home and the 2 little boys were bagging to go back home to hand out candy to trick or treaters (we had none). But we did get to get  candy from 6-7 houses before the littles gave up for the evening. 
 Logan was Laval, the Price of the Lion Tribe from Lego Chima.
 Carson is a T-Rex and loving it and James was a stick figure, however he was not much into taking pictures!
 We did not have a lot of success getting candy which works out good for me, but it also means I don't have as many choices for the glorious candy taxes.
 We were blessed with this amazing sunset.  I had hoped to get some sunset with my camera, but they don't last long enough.

 Happy Halloween,
