February 19, 2008

Today was our 3rd anniversary. February is a busy month for us, with Valentine's day on the 14th, our anniversary on the 19th, my birthday soon after and my mom's birthday the day after mine.

We had a fun evening. The dad left work early and we took the boys to Super Cuts for their first ever hair cut in a real hair cutting place. It was fun. Nick was excited and jumped right up and sat very still. He did great. Ben was not quite as excited and cried a little when he was put in the chair but stopped when the lady gave him a comb to 'help'. He did pretty well after that. To be fair though, I'm not sure that he was feeling well today. He did not eat very well and that is really not like him at all. Plus, he was very cranky and then did not take a very good nap and he has dark circles under his eyes. Time will tell but there is a lot of stuff going on around here right now. I heard on the radio today that they were even shutting down a couple of the schools because there were so many kids out due to the flu and other sickness.

Anyway, back to my story. Here are some before and after pics:



I thought she did a better job on Nick's hair cut than she did on Ben's but they both look much better than they did.  And they are both little cutie patooties:). Anyway, we watched what she did closely so we can repeat it ourselves at home:). We'll give it a shot next time and see how it goes. If we need to watch her again, we'll go back.

After the hair cuts, we went to Luby's for a celebratory dinner with all of the retired folks:). It was a very nice, fun evening out. I also had a MOPS meeting today. I missed the last one, as it was on the same day Ben's stitches came out. I went to the one before that in January but the boys stayed home with my mom and sister so they had not been since December. It did not go to well at first. Both of them were screaming and crying for a little while but they soon settled down and had a fun time. They were quite the little cranky pants when we got home though...I'm still wondering if I'm going to have to little sickies on my hands tomorrow.

My husband and I were both running low grade fevers on Sunday and I had chilling and aching on top of the fever. I thought I had the flu because I felt so bad and I spent the majority of the day in bed. Fortunately, I started feeling better in the evening and felt pretty much back to normal by mid-morning on Monday. So they may be getting whatever it was we had.

In other good news:), a couple in our church Bible study class gave us a wonderful gift the other day. These are the same people who gave us a ton of toys before the boys came home....or maybe it was just after they came home. I can't remember now. Anyway, they gave us a train table and a whole set of trains to go with it. What a wonderful gift! Their kids had outgrown it and were not playing with it anymore.

We had a small train set that we were able to combine with the one they gave us. I put it together and the dad glued it to the table with a glue gun that we bought for this purpose and have now discovered it is our new best friend.

I have more pics I want to post but it's past my bedtime so I will do so later. Good night:).

love N's hair short. They both look great. We have a similar train set. Kevin loves them.

Hope you can relax in March

Happy Belated Anniversary. I meant to send you an email yesterday, but Alli had a stomach bug and I was preoccupied. Sounds like you had a good day!

They look great. One of our kids always looks better after his haircut and he has hair like N's. My older son has hair like B's and it doesn't always look as good but I think it's partly due to the hair itself. Well, and the fact that J doesn't like having the hair fall in his face and it makes him wiggle even whenhe's determined to sit still.
