One of the first things we did was get some much needed haircuts. We decided Anna needed bangs if she wanted to wear her hair down, which she does. Her hair is just constantly in her face without them. And she looks so darn cute with them.
Mia has A LOT of hair, I mean A LOT. She has the thickest hair I have ever seen. And she doesn't like it brushed. And she is sensitive to pain. And her hair gets dry and tangled easily. Did I mention it was thick???? In the picture below there are about 6 or more huge tangles in her hair that I was just not willing to fight any more with her about getting them out. I told her we were just going to have to cut her hair short. To my surprise she said, "Okay."
This year we were home as the wise men completed their trip to the nativity on January 6, Epiphany.
The next day Joey and Brittany came for a weekend visit.
It was cold. Bitter cold. So we stayed indoors. The kids had SO. MUCH. FUN. It reminded me of when the older kids were young and would get together with all the cousins at both grandparent's homes. Priceless memories.
We went on a field trip to Casa Bonita. The kids loved it, adults wondered why it is still in business. But it's one of those places you go to because you just can't believe it really is as bad as everyone says.
Last weekend we went to see the play Mary Poppins. Mia liked it. Anna fell asleep sitting straight up. Love that about her. It had all the songs from the movie but switched around in different places than the movie. Dan and I found it weird.
On Sunday we celebrated Chinese New Year! Arek, Becky and the kids came with us.
Happy New Year!
