Lunar Eclipse

When I was a kid (don't remember how old), there was an eclipse. Like the kind you needed a special viewing box to see. It's a memory I will never forget-and thought it would be fun for the kids to see an eclipse and read about why it happens. I guess that's the homeschooler coming out in me. :) Anyway-it was a super clear night, we woke up at 1:30 and got in the van wrapped up in blankets. The temp was 5..yes, 5 degrees. brrrrr. We didn't stay up for the whole thing, I timed it so they could see the moon go in to the full eclipse and watch it turn "red", then we headed back to bed. So glad we did it!

Chloe and Paige

This past weekend we celebrated the marraige of Lacy Holen and Evander Pinder. Paige and Chloe were asked to help serve punch so I thought it would be fun to have an afternoon of getting ready at our house. Doing hair is always more fun when you have a friend to do it with! They each browsed pinterest and picked out what styles they wanted and we got to work! 

Paige said they needed a before picture-this one is a keeper!

Picking out earring

Chloe took a turn with the camera

I think this was the part where Chloe told Paige "Beauty is pain-deal with it".
Crazy eyes

Paige's hair is getting pretty long, so its fun to play with. I'm glad she's enjoying braids more cause I'm having fun learning new ways to do it!
Chloe went with a fancy pinned back curl look

Cuties and Besties. So glad they have stayed such best friends, they are so fun to watch grow!
