Oh, were every weekend a long one...


Ross had Monday off, and -- wow-- to have one more Saturday AFTER Sunday would really make the world a better place wouldn't it? One Saturday for chores, and one for fun. That's what we need.

Saturday we went for a bike-ride and checked out a new school near-by. The weather was dreamy-- and being outside like that made me almost feel like I was "home" in San Diego. So I know we're only a week or two in--- but so far, the bikes--- GOOOOOD investment. Check back in May when the triple digit heat sneaks up on us...




Guess we needed to see the whole family in aviators-- Look close at this one of Mila--- it doubles as a family portrait. We're ALL in there.



This one just makes me laugh. Ross was on his phone back there in the distance and I can almost hear Mila here "come in, come in agent daddy-- the eagle has landed and she is refusing to share her sippie..." is it just me?




Change of topic: Meet the sock rollers that MIGHT revolutionize Sundays for us, if I can figure out how to get them in early enough to actually make a lasting curl.

She won't let me get within ten feet of her with something hot- but was thrilled when she saw her lovely curl(s) from these very soft, very NON-hot socks. I put the "s" in parenthesis as I'm not sure more than one curl lasted all the way to church. So like I said, MIGHT revolutionize Sundays-- we'll see what a little hair-spray can do next week. Oh the joys of fine hair.


Ahh--- Tuesday, back to the grind. Got my teeth cleaned today at the dentist and while I SWEAR I floss religiously each day, my wincing and bleeding led the hygienist to believe otherwise. So now I'm wondering what floss I'm supposed to use to give me gums of steel that won't bleed when scraped and stabbed repeatedly with a metal hook. Seriously.

Love all the pics! I am in the same boat as you with the hair on Sunday! I have to try this! If you figure out any tips on getting that lasting curl, let us know!

when I was little my mom did the same thing to my hair but instead of socks she would use strips of old pillow cases (about 6-8 inches long and 1.5-2 inches wide), then roll newspaper or the junk mail ads around the strips of cloth in the middle and then roll them tightly in our hair and tie them off. Maybe that will work?

What a fabulous idea with the socks. My girls luckily (or I should say girl) will let me curl their hair.

I just found your blog via another blog that I follow. Your family is adorable! Here's what I do to curl my girls' impossible to curl hair. I use strips of cloth cut in 1 x 6 inch strips and roll their hair (as you did with the socks) when it is still slightly damp. If it's too wet, it won't dry overnight. If it's too dry, the curls will not hold. When you unroll the hair, do not brush it. I just kind of pick at it with my fingers. NOW, here's a warning. At first, you will freak out and wonder what the crazy commentor on your blog was thinking. BUT, after about an hour, the curls will begin to fall and be beautiful. My girls' hair stays curly for at least two days--and their hair has never before held a curl. The only problem with this technique is that you really do need the "falling" time before leaving the house, so if your Sundays are very rushed, this may not work. I'd experiment first. Good luck!
