Hair Show!!!!



Cameo College of Essential Beauty (my hair school) had their 7th annual hair show competition this last weekend. All the students were split into 19 different groups then into 4 different categories. We had to choose a model, and do the haircut, hair color, nails, wardrobe, song to walk the runway too, and overall appearance of the model. We then had 4 judges, 2 from out of state and 2 from Utah. They judged us on everything. From the sectioning of our haircut to the color placement, the nail detail and fit of the wardrobe to our theme. The grand prize for "Best of Show" was an all expense paid trip for our team to California Sassoon Show.

Our model was amazing! She looked amazing. I can't put an after picture of my model yet, because I am entering her into another competition, but we won!!!!! We won 1st place in our category, AND we won "Best of Show" award for the overall show. It was an amazing opportunity and I learned so much!!! I will post her before and after picture in a few months after I enter her in another competition!!!!! (She is the one with the red hair)



Potty training!!

Before Carter turned 3, we were trying to potty train. His response would be..."When I turn 3 I will potty in the toilet." we were like ya right.


Well on his 3rd birthday in september, that was the last diaper. He put underwear on, and he was pretty much potty trained. He has had a few accidents but other then that, he is good!!!! That just goes to show...once you set your mind to something, anything can be accomplished.


Carter put my heels on the other day and said "Mom these shoes hurt"....yes!!!!! they do!!!!!
Playing with bugs....
Carter and cousin Ivy doing Yoga....
My sister Vanessa graduated from Hair school in Kansas, then passed her state boards with a 95%!!!!! Yay nessa, we am so proud of you!!!!

Its been a long time....

I have decided today is the day to start my blog again. I know it has been a long time, but hey at least I am starting now.
We have been pretty busy with our new house, the holidays, and keeping up with this little 2 year old. I just cannot believe how fast these little kids grow up. He is talking pretty much in full sentences, he says bless you when you sneeze, please, thank you and your welcome, and he will get himself a napkin when needed. We are having a hard time with things to eat, but he is still growing up nice and healthy.

Here are a couple videos of him singing his ABC's and twinkle twinkle little star.

I have noticed that the reason I dread updating the blog, is because I feel the need to post huge things. So I am not going to. Just short and sweet. So enjoy these videos!
