Randomness of the Littles

Just a few funny pics that don't necessarily need their own post!
What? You've never given your kid the part of a head of Romaine lettuce that you normally discard and see if she likes it? I thought every parent did that. And no, she didn't like it. But she kept going back for more. Crazy B!
This is what Mya does now when she sees the camera. She has learned this from her sister, because I have taken the advice of a few photographer friends and have NOT taught her to "cheese". I'm pretty sure I didn't teach it to Lo, either, but I'm not the only one who has taken her picture. All it takes is one cousin/aunt/grandparent/uncle, and you're done. Cheese forever.
And I love this kid more than anything, but usually her "cheese" looks more like she's growling or about ready to bite something.

Now, I don't know if any of you have ever wondered what Lo's hair looks like straight, but I have, so I thought I'd try it out one day.
Wow.
Mullet anyone?
The sad thing is that on the sides, right in front of her ears - that has NEVER been cut. My kids are definitely not blessed with an over abundance of hair.
After it was done I told her we needed to put it in ponies because I didn't like it. She kind of whined about it, so I told her to go look in the mirror.
So she ran over and looked, ran back and said "It's not very cute. I don't like it"
Me neither!

I'm just going to end this by saying how excited I am for Christmas this year! I truly feel lke a parent this year - I haven't thought about anything other than making this as magical for my kids as possible. Every day is spent making preparations and doing fun activities and trying to teach Lauren about Santa (which she finally understands this year) as well as the true meaning of Christmas. We talk about the 3 nativities we have in our house, we read books about the birth of Christ. I couldn't wait to get out all of my decorations and put up our tree - I lugged that huge thing up the stairs myself the day after Thanksgiving because I just couldn't wait for Bryan to get home. I've always loved the holiday season, but there is nothing like this time of year when you have kids old enough to enjoy it.
But secretly - I think I'm more excited than them!

I'm so glad you put Wham's "Last Christmas" on your music list. It's so cheesy, especially the music video that Justin and I just have to laugh whenever we hear it on the radio. That and Paul McCartney's "Truly having a wonderful Christmas time." And I love Lo's mullet. She'll be so glad you took a picture for posterity. I'm sure Nora will have the same hairdo soon enough.

You are more excited then them, for them, and that's what makes it so much fun! I'm so glad that you are experiencing this right now. Love those little girls for some day they'll be big girls, and while big girls are still fun little girls are the bestest! ;)

I too am more excited for this year than my kids - I love seeing the magic in their eyes! Here's to a great Christmas season!

Love the mullet pic! Luckily, Lo has curly hair! Miss Pretty doesn't get that option, so it just gets pulled up every chance I get! I'm still baffled as to why the top won't grow??? hmmm. . .
