bon voyage!

after watching an episode of curious george where george made a boat out of random toys and such from around the house, jack really wanted to try making his own. i thought it would be fun to have the kids each make their own, any way they wanted, and see who's floated... but ellie wants to do everything just like jack these days. so there wasnt much of an experiment.


here they are, setting off on their maiden voyage!
and they float!

this afternoon my mom mentioned how long ellie's bangs were getting. i had only noticed it when she was in the pool because i am constantly sweeping them out of her eyes. well i thought just a trim would be ok. lets just say a "trim" wasnt just a "trim". i cut WAY more than i intended. and its not like she was moving around or her bangs were wet. i have no excuse. i did a terrible job. but it has made me smile every time i look at her.
i should have just lied about it and said she got to them on her own...



they'll grow back right?! they actually dont look horrific when i sweep them to the side. but the odds of her keeping them swept to the side...slim to none!

Fun fun!!! It's funny she does everything the same as Jack, haha. And her bangs don't look that bad, really. And she's young enough that she doesn't care anyway, haha. Cute kiddos! Jack looks so grown up in that picture of the two of them!

that one where she is "crossing" her eyes made me laugh out loud! it's our new desktop. you sure are a fun mom, and don't worry, ev's bowl cut is coming back around after just 2 weeks, besides- she looks adorable no matter what- even when she is growling

The bangs look just great, and you won't have to cut them for a while.

I still think she's cute as a button... not even her mom can take that away from her! Just kidding, Lis : )

Her hair doesn't look that bad. Just wait until she actually DOES get ahold of the scissors. You'll be wishing for these bangs! :)
