It's beginning to look a lot like....CHRISTMAS!!!

First I must say when there are this many candles on a cake... no need to celebrate!
I had to have Cade help me blow them out..his lungs are younger ;)
What a fun wedding gift!! I couldn't bear to leave him out in the cold and wet..

Let it SNOW..

and by the window their stockings hung with care...

THE TREE.. no christmas red and green for me...

Wishing you all a "joyous" holiday!

Star or Angel or.... Sparkles!!!!

We hope you all have or had a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Minha sobrinha.. Sabrina

For those of you non Portuguese speakers... My niece Sabrina.. Drica and Madson welcomed Sabrina Rodrigues into their family in Dec. 16 (my birthday) and I am so excited!!
Drica was my favorite companion and has remained one of my closest friends (despite the distance) since we have come home!
I don't know about you but don't you think Latino babies look so much older with all of their hair?!? Nevertheless I think she is BEAUTIFUL
and to answer your question NO this does not make me baby hungry ;)

Queria dizer a Sabrina que vc e linda e tao abencoada nascer nessa familia eterna.. Eu te amo como amo sua mae e estou animada para o dia que posso conhece-la!! Estou feliz que compartilhmos o mesmo aniversario para que sempre possa lembrar te mandar muitos presentes!!!

Hair Today...Gone Tomorrow!!

So I know that this is totally cliche.. Get married and cut your hair...But to be honest when I started growing my hair out 2 years ago I never planned on keeping it forever.. In fact, the original plan was to donate as soon as I had the 8 inches required.. (this is just a view from the front.. don't mind the scrounge outfit)

(Don't you love my self portraits? I had to make do with the hubby already gone for the day)

I made an appointment with Jen my Hair Stylist (who does a fabulous job by-the-way)


( Please note these pictures were taken after a LONG day at work so please excuse my somewhat tired face)
I am sure my high school crew are having flashbacks of all my high school years right now..

It's just what I wanted and all the gross hair on the ends is gone and I have healthy, shiny hair once again!! What do you think of it?!?

Besides having had quite a few people who are close to me suffer from cancer and lose their hair-I thought it was the least I could do to give my hair for someone's wig!!
FYI: Locks of Love charges for their wigs so if anyone is considering donating their hair I would research for an organization that donates their wigs.. there are plenty of them out there!:)
