As I was getting ready the other morning I couldn't stand my hair any longer. I had debated about getting it cut, but really don't like going to hair salons. I grabbed the scissors and trimmed a few inches off my hair. The things I love about short hair: It feels so light and airy. My hair is a bit curly and curls a lot more when it is short.
Well, that is only two reasons, but they are the ones that stand out to me.
My parents took me on a little trip and fulfilled one of my wishes of things to see in Texas. We were lucky to see the temple. The grounds are beautiful and the temple is amazing. There is such a peace throughout the whole grounds.
My last wish was to see the Gulf of Mexico. I have only seen the Pacific Ocean, granted it was from both sides of the Pacific Ocean. It was a beautiful and perfect day to stop and see the Gulf. We loved seeing the pelicans flying around as well. The children explored the shells. Now to explore other areas.
I was doing some cleaning while the children played together when I noticed Benjamin was out of sight. I walked around the corner to hear him laughing in the hallway looking at a doorknob. I realized, he noticed he could see himself in the doorknob. I tried to capture a bit of it, when David decided to join too:
I love seeing what the children find as funny. Who would have thought the doorknobs could be so entertaining.
This picture made me laugh. Every Sunday we ask David to change out of his church-going clothe and put on other nice Sunday clothes (that are easier to clean). A few Sundays ago I went to David's room to see if he was changing and setting his clothes away nicely... This is what I saw. He didn't put them away, but he lay them out so nicely, tie and all.
