25 Day Hair Challenge

I have become very lazy with my hair. I fix it the same way almost everyday. On day 1, I wash it, blow dry it and straighten it so that it looks like this:


On day 2, it usually ends up in a pony tail. If I ever get to day 3, I am looking really rough and my husband usually asks me when was the last time I took a shower. :) 

So, I have decided to give myself a 25 Day Hair Challenge. Starting on December 1st and ending on Christmas Day, I will attempt a new hairstyle everyday. I will be posting my new hairstyle on my blog each day. I have no idea if I can come up with 25 different looks, but I will do my best. I never learned how to do a good french braid, so you will have to forgive any of my attempts to braid.

Please, please send me any hairstyles you want me to try or you think would look good on my head. Stay tuned....

Christmas Card Photos

A few weeks ago, our good friend, John Clinton, took pictures of our family as a belated baby present. He is so kind and talented! He got some precious shots of Will. Here are some of my favorites. I'm saving my very, very favorite picture for our Christmas card. So if you receive Christmas cards from us, you will still be surprised. 






Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving week was awesome for us this year! We got to spend the whole week with our families. On Monday, Matthew's parents came into town and stayed with us until Tuesday and then my family came into town on Wednesday and stayed with us until Friday. Even my little sister Kristen came over from Dallas and camped out on our air mattress just so she could spend more time with us. I love you sis! I didn't get many pictures from the week, but here are a few.

My younger sister Andrea and Will

My youngest sister Kristen

My cousin Bailey, Aunt Laurie, my mom, me, Kristen, and Andrea

Every woman present at Thanksgiving, excluding one aunt and my grandmother, were wearing skinny jeans and boots. Of course, we had to get a picture. (This was not planned.)
