Goodbye Haystack

And you thought this post was about Cannon Beach didn't you?
We've allowed Sascha to keep his hair long for the past 2.5 years.
Every haircut (or rather, trim) has been like pulling hair.
He never wanted one.
Always hated it.
We demanded it.
Every single time.
Lately though it's gotten a little out of control.
Like unto a haystack.
With some bribing involved,
And a big sister's words of encouragement,
Alas, here's the new spiffed up 'do!

Handsome fella...

The kids were cracking up at something. Can you guess what?

I guess his hair was smiling because it could now see Sascha's eyes!

Wordless Wednesday

Pops is Eighty One!

Back in April (yes, still behind) Pops (Steve's dad) turned 81!
I made him a strawberry pie to celebrate and he got to open a few gifts.
Jim was visiting from Hawaii which made it even funner.
Sorry about the discolored and blurry pics.
I had to revert to an older camera.

We love you Pops!

Teenager Alert!

Still a bit behind with my blog. This was a March event.

Sarah's Birthday Celebration...

Instead of  a cake Sarah chose blueberry muffins as her dessert. Made 'em from scratch.

Some great gifts: eyebrow tweezers, eyelash curler, green olives (her fave), gift card for kindle books, gift card for clothing, iTunes gift card, jewelry, etc... (Thank you Fyffe's, Anderson's and Holcombs!)

But even cooler was her brand new cell phone that she had no idea she was getting. Priceless! I think Apollo was just as excited as she was.

I am so blessed to have Sarah in my life. She's always had a heart of gold and always makes me proud. Such a beautiful, talented and smart girl! Love you Sarah!!!!
