First of all, Happy New Year!! 2010 was a year full of blessings and joy--praying that 2011 brings the same to you and yours. I always love the hope that surrounds a new year coming. Excited to see what 2011 brings.
As for the end of 2010, Buck and I both had biggish projects we wanted to get done--big as in time-consuming. And when there are 8 little feet underfoot, so to speak, sometimes those projects are hard to do. But with a little teamwork, we both got 'em done! My project was Zoe's hair. I love doing her hair, but like I said, it is time-consuming. She is such a little trooper, even from the time she was really little, to sit and get her hair done. But everyone has their limits. So because this was a new style for us, preparing took a long time--watched several YouTube videos on how to do it, and picked the way that I thought would work best. I learned a lot and there are a few things I will do differently next time, but for now, this will do! Here is the little lady LOVING her new yarn braids (aka genie locs). This took about 3 days--2 hours each day--about 6 hours total. That was all Z could take, and all my back could take--I did most of it standing up with her sitting at the kitchen table watching my iPad. :) I am not a very fast braid-er, but got much better the further we got. It is a style that I am hoping will last about a month, but even a couple weeks will make both of us very happy!!

Pretty, huh?? This girl is gorgeous no matter what--I just love to see her loving the fuss we were making over her. :)

And drumroll....Buck's big project...

We have a VERY generous Papa who is WAY into trains...every single piece was purchased by him for our fun train room. We try to take it down in the warm months just for something different, so it is time to put it back up--which as you can see is no small feat. The kids are very excited to run the trains--Tate and Zoe especially. It is fun to have our train room up and running again! Thank you, Buck!!

Come on over and play anytime!! :) Happy New Year, friends!
