"I see", said the blind man

I'm trying an old fashioned hair curling technique. Have you heard of pin curls? If your answer was no, I'll explain.

Wash your hair, wait until it's about 80% dry (Or it will still be wet the next morning). Add mousse, gel or your favorite pomade cream. With a 1 inch section at a time, wrap the hair (starting with the end) around your finger until you reach your head. Pin it in place with two bobby pins making an "X". Spray finished curls with harspray and let dry.

It should look something relative to this pic below. You can even smile like her when your done for added effect!


Place a hair net over your head and go to sleep! Now what other hairstyle requires sleep as one of the steps? Could life get better? I submit that it cannot!

I"ll take out my curls in the morning and take pictures of real, non-enhanced results of the classic pin curl method. I hope it works, or else I'll be sporting a very bushy ponytail wilst grocery shopping tomorrow.

Michelle and lema came over the other day and brought Miles along for the ride (I say that like they were considerding leaving him home. Uh huh.). My dad was sick at the time Miles was born and ddn't get to hold him for fear of being contagious. So this was the first time he got to hold his first grandson! Miles was in a good mood and stared at my dad the whole time. It was a bonding momemt. 1,2,3 AaaaaWWWWWWWW!!!


That day Miles was wide awake without complaint. Perfect picture moment!


He loves to sleep all stretched out. So comfy!



Rachel took two art classes this year at Cyprus. Part of the year end requirements were to submit a couple pieces into the art show. Rachel didn't have enough pieces, so the night before, she stayed up until 3 am and made this polymer clay wizard. It not only got a red ribbon (excellence) but won 1 of 2 principals choice awards for the pottery category out of about 100 other pieces. She was beaming all night long!
Her slab pot won a blue ribbon (superior). She didn't mean for the glaze to drip, but it turned out cool anyway. Cool enough for a blue ribbon!
Like I said, she was beaming! lol. This is her stamp she carved herself. It's Cary Grant for all you non-old-movie-watching people
That same night was the Spring Choir Concert. Rachel was in the concert choir Remember doing this? The hot lights, binding dresses, Mishaps left and right? Ah, good times. They sounded good this year, especially the madrigals. They are going on tour as well and did their tour show towards the end of the concert. VERY well put together. They have good danceers this year.
Don't you love the penguin dresses? I liked our senoir ones best. The Blue ones that flattered everyone.

Oh, can't forget. Mothers day. It's a little late, but oh well. My mom got a new crockpot, a tall climbing vine plant and a bunch of other things I can't remember. I got her a church bag she had been eyeing at walmart, and her corsage for church on sunday. No one does these enough anymore. I think we all should. Flowers always make a girl (or mom) feel special.
My mom has done so much for me and my family it blows my mind. She's a convert to the church and knows so much about it that I can never catch up to her knowledge. She majored in English in college, and to this day, still reads the dictionary for fun. I am so glad have her for my example of what I want to be when I grow up. I got her great toned legs and thin ankles from the gene pool, her love of music, love of the scriptures and her green eyes.
She is the most charitable and patent person I know. I love her to pieces. Happy Mother's Day Mom!
