New Hairdo!

Here's a new hairdo I was just kind of experimenting with! Don't know what to call it! With the two topsy pony tails in the front, a little braid and then the braid pony tails in the back! It turned out pretty cute!

Kid's Fire Hat!

I got this hat at the dollar store just for fun the other day, and it has been Matthew's and Kaity's favorite toy! They have so much fun with it! Kaity liked playing peek-a-boo with it! I just thought these pictures were cute!

Her Curls!

Well, I found one picture! Its not a very good picture, but it shows the curls from when I did the spikey head buns! You might have to click on the picture to enlarge it!

Spikey Head!

I wanted her hair to be curly so I did a lot of these spikey buns! I thought she was so cute like this, but I ended up having to take out the bottom buns for her nap because it hurt to sleep on them! But I left in the top two and I took them out the next morning and let me talk about curls! They were so cute! I didn't get any pictures of them (Who knows why! I'm usually good about stuff like that)! You'll just have to take my word for it! :)

Matthew's Surgery Again!

Well, the doctors told us to watch out for day number 7 after his surgery! So I knew it was going to be a bad day, but not this bad! They say that day 6 or 7 is when the scabs fall off from his tonsillectomy, so they said to watch out for bleeding! Well, it all started at about 2:30 in the morning! He woke up coughing and kind of wimpering! I went up there and I didn't see anything. So I gave him a drink of water and tried to get him to go back to sleep! He woke up again at 4:00 and i noticed he was bleeding a lot! I'll save you some of the gruesome details, lets just say he lost a LOT of blood!
I raced him to the hospital and they gave him an I.V. and told me that he would have to be put back to sleep and then cauterize his blood vessels to stop the bleeding! The bad part was that a throat specialist has to do it! The closest throat specialist is in Spokane! :( So they called in an ambulance from Lewiston! Here is a picture of Matthew in the Ambulance! It was the time he finally cheered up! He loved riding in the ambulance! They even gave him that teddy bear! He held on to it the whole time we were in the hospital!
After we got to the hospital they showed us to our room and then he got shipped off to surgery! It was very sad, but he wasn't quite as scared because he's already gone through it! He was scared, but he seemed to be a little better about it! How he is in this picture is how he was the whole time! He insisted on laying on me the whole time! I loved the cuddling!
We ended up having to stay the night at the hospital! And remember I left in a rush at 4 in the morning! So of course I had nothing with me! No change of clothes or toothbrush or anything! :( They had to give him his I.V. through his arm behind his elbow so he wasn't able to bend his arm at all, which got very annoying! They had to put a kind of brace an his arm to keep it still! He HATED it! In this picture we got to take off the brace and he's propping his arm up on his teddy bear! And we finally got him to eat something! A banana!

So we're finally home and he's acting pretty normal again! Still in pain and has to eat a lot of popsicles and stuff! But they say that once you cauterize, then you don't have to do it again! So he should be getting better now! Keep him in your prayers!

As you can tell, I finally got my topsytail! I absolutely LOVE it! It is SOOO easy to do this to her hair! There's so much more I can do now, I don't even know where to begin! :)

Matthew's Tonsils Removed!

Today we went to the hospital in Spokane to get Matthew's tonsils and adenoids removed! It was so sad! He hated it there! Every time a doctor got near him he would start crying! When we got there, they gave him some medicine that was supposed to make him act like a drunk as the doctors described it! When it started kicking in he got VERY loopy! He tried to stand up and, if we hadn't caught him, he would have fallen flat on his face! He didn't remember anything from that point on! Then when they took him, he grabbed my shirt and would not let go! And he was crying and yelling 'Mommy'! It broke my heart! : ( Then we had to sit there and wait while he was having the surgery!
When it was all done we got to go to the recovery room and see him! When we went in there he was just starting to wake up! He was so sad and panicky! He didn't know where he was and what was going on! It was a very sad time! Here is a picture of him when he was crying!
Here is a picture of when he took a break in his crying and we got him to eat a pop-cicle!
Here we finally got him to get back on the bed and then he started to cheer up and play with some toys that they had there! I didn't realize that he would still be pretty loopy and when I sat him on the bed he fell over right on his face! : ( We had to wait in the recovery room for quite awhile because he kept coughing and it sounded just like a seal barking! They said if he didn't stop coughing than we would have to stay overnight! They were giving him all kinds of stuff for his cough and finally it got a LOT better! So they took out the IV and let us go home!
Here he is after we got home! He was laying on the couch watching his favorite movie (Land Before Time) and he fell asleep sitting up! He is so sad! I just want to cuddle him always!

Keep him in your thoughts and prayers and hope that he gets better soon!

Zig-Zag Ponytail!

I thought this one was pretty fun! And very easy!

Taking Out the Shrek Ears!

Here's the ringlet that the shrek ears made! It is very curly! And when I combed it out a little bit it looked like she had a perm! I think in a little while I'm going to put her to bed with a bunch of the shrek ear buns, and then in the morning take them out and she'll be all curly for that day!

Shrek Ears!

Is aw this done on another hair blog and when they took it out they were the cutest little ringlets! I'm going to try it with these two and if it works I'm going to do a lot more of these buns! I'll let you know what they look like when I take them out!

Ballerina buns!

I did her hair in little buns this morning because I knew that I was going to put her tutu on her and when I think of ballerinas, they always have buns in their hair! So I went with buns today!

Kaity's Tutu!

Here's the little ballerina tutu that I made last night! It was so easy, just a little time consuming! It is so cute on Kaity! It took her a little while to get used to it though! I just think it is adorable!
Here's a back shot of it! You tie it off with a cute little bow!

Book Sale!

Yesterday we went to the library's book sale! They were trying to get rid of a lot of books that were donated! They were having their bag of books for a buck sale! Its all the books you can fit in a grocery bag for a dollar! When we got home Matthew and Kaity went crazy wanting to read all the books they got! So we put them all on the floor and they just layed there and read for ever! It was really cute until they started fighting over the books!

Hair Knots and Puffy Braids!

This is probably one of my favorite hairdos now! The top are just the twisted knots that don't need any hair ties to stay in! I thing they are Very Cool! Then I just pulled it all back in pigtails and made them into puffy braids!
Here is a picture of her hairdo with some ribbon bows that I made!

French Braid with Pigtails and Flowers!

If you can believe it or not, I am 23 years old and I have never learned how to do a french braid! Shocking I know! Well, my sister finally showed me how last night, so today I tried it in Kaity's hair! I couldn't go very far, but I'm pretty proud of myself! The flowers in her hair I also made!

Our Fort!

The other day we turned our whole living room into a giant fort! We had blankets everywhere!! Then we made some popcorn and watched Madagascar 2! The kids loved it! They thought it was so cool! Here are some pictures of everyone playing in the fort!
