    I’m sorry – you do spend Halloween?

    It’s just a cultural thing or is it in contradiction with Christian faith?

    When my oldest daughter was around 3 we took her to a bookstore for the first time. She had been to the library on a regular basis since birth. At the bookstore she “picked out” lots of books to checkout. We had to explain that these had to be bought. She was a little confused!

  17. Hillary says:

    I LOVE the new color — but I might be a little biased since I’m a redhead too!

  18. Jen says:

    Hello, Monday.
    Hello to no electricity, no hot water (what I miss the most) no heat and no trick or treaters.
    Surprise snowstorm on Saturday in Massachusetts knocked out power to our whole little town and others too.
    I have a massive pile of tree branches in my yard and don’t know when I’ll have power. But your blog makes me smile whenever I visit.
    Keep up the adorable posts. You have a very cute family.

  43. ariel says:

    hello to your cute little angels maam, look at david, my heart melts …

  44. Hi! Love the red hair! Thinking of dying my hair one of these days again. I loved being a red-head!

  45. Michelle B says:

    LOVE the hair! perfect for winter:) I love red hair, but it never holds well in my hair (except it pulls red when i want to cover it!) I was told about this product called Kenra that works wonders on hair color! I love it, I highly recommend looking into it. The beauty supply in slo off of Los Osos Valley road carries it… hopefully you can get your hands on it!
