Gobble... Gobble... Gobble

Thanksgiving was awesome!!! We ate until we were fat! We munched until we were sick! We were disgusting! Lola put on her reserved act and fooled the Hart family into thinking that she never cries or screams. What a sly girl! We took a hike and found Chantrelle mushrooms. Brian packed Lo on his back. She loves being outside! Lola started saying Grandma, and Grandma rewarded her with the Thanksgiving dishes. We played games, Lola dug in the gravel (Looks like she will be a rock hound too!), and enjoyed the company of family! I guess that is what Thanksgiving is about! I am most thankful for my little family. The make my life complete. Love is powerful. I missed my family in Utah, but I shall see you one day soon.

A Place To Call Home

So, Brian found a home for us in Edmonds, WA. We are about 15 miles North of Seatttle. He will be about 5 minutes from work, and Lola will have a 3 year old friend upstairs. Lola and I haven't seen our new home in person, but it can't be all bad... it has blue cabinets! Anyway, I hope we love it!

It's Been A Long Time Coming

I pretended not to hear the comments when people would say Lola had a comb-over, I laughed with them when they would say she looked like Donald Trump, and all the while I was throwing mental fireballs at your hair. Lola is beautiful, and so is her hair, but it was getting too long! It had to be done! Her hair was in her eyes! I was constantly having to brush it to the side. Lola needed a trim.

I remember the days of getting my hair cut while mom was away. I thought Grandma did a fine job, but mom was always so mad! I guess it wasn't as cute as I thought. If you will remember, I haven't had the best of luck with professionals either. There was the duckling hair in Greece, the the spotted hideousness that was my hair in Gold Beach, and the most recent Kari Bain hair this past winter.

I had scheduled an appointment for tomorrow, but Cynthia said I was crazy. She said, "I cut Devan's hair for the first two years of his life. I would cut it while he was sleeping." I figured I could do it too! I could take Cynthia's advice and trim my sweet child's bangs. How hard could it be? HARDER THAN I THOUGHT!

My friend Heather once told me that little gIrls are so much fun. The bad part is that they seem to have a chullet ~aka~ child mullet for the first few years. I refused to believe her... UNTIL NOW :(

We went to Devan's birthday party at Pump-It-Up yesterday. It is one of those places where you can jump on all the blow up stuff. There was a huge slide, a basketball court, a jumping dome, etc. Lola had a great time once she got her sea legs.

Lola's 2nd Halloween was awesome! We went to a costume party with about 25 little kids. She was pretty cute, but really wanted to hang out in the kitchen... lots of adults and food! The group photo was a bit overwhelming, but we made it through. Then Jones and Jessica came over to trick-or-treat. It was butt lovin' cold, so Brian took the kids out. Jones was a bit nervous, so they came back after visiting a few houses. Lola was like, I don't know what is wrong with him, but I want to charge this candy thing. So, off they went collecting the loot. Jones and Lola had a fun time together, they got into their jammies and danced to the One Eyed One Horned Flying Purple Eater... very cute! Thank you Jess, and Jones. You made our night!
Lola's Life of Luxury!!!
