What I wouldn't give for her hair!10:03 AM
Last night after the kids bath, I was in the bathroom blow drying Jasmine's hair and I just had to snap a picture of it from the back. It's one of those hairs that make you wince and envy and feel like "Ugh.....why can't I have it?"
She is always being complimented on her hair and at first she loved it and said thank you, now she is getting to the age where it becomes annoying to her. (I still find it adorable) I can understand how she feels a little frustrated when she's stopped every two steps because someone wants to mention it LOL
But just look at it? How can anyone not think it's gorgeous?
And while this was going on, Mr Nicholas was on the couch trying to get his Yoshi to the next level in his "Yoshi's Story" video game. At some point he lost cause he cried out in this very sad voice "Noooooooo........I worked so haaarrddd" hahahahahaah
I just want to keep running my hands through it......and I did, see my hand down there in the left corner? She was getting frustrated with me "can you just take the picture already, and quit PETTING me!" LOL
Curt is working a weird schedule this week, he goes in at 11 am and doesn't get home until long after everyone is asleep. I can't stand this schedule, it's like working Swing Shifts, which means he gets up after Jasmine is at school and gets home AFTER she's asleep.....they won't see each other until this weekend and it's tough on the kids. But it's military life and just one of the sacrifices we make as a family.....they're all worth it in the end though, believe me!
We got the Superbowl coming up, it's going to be at the Cardinals Stadium which is just down the street from base, it's already crazy around here with the preparations and the influx of sports enthusiasts in town. I'm just hoping I can snap some pictures of the Giants and the Patriots....and no, it's not because I LIKE watching sports, but hey, why not....it's a huge thing here in the States....right???
Yesterday I was watching TLC and caught a whole day of "Kids By the Dozen"....I didn't know at first if I would like it or not, but after watching a couple episodes I was hooked. I just can't believe that these huge families are so organized, I mean, I have a hard time with just two children at times LOL And here are these mothers with 16 kids, everything runs smoothly, they have a great routine and budget going and these children look happy and well taken care of. Just amazing to me!
I know I'm babbling and I apologize, if you've been reading my blog for a while you know that I don't do *one theme* posts, it's more like a huge hodgepodge of whatever comes to mind and always said like you're sitting here next to me.
Anyway, I have to head out, have to run to the store to grab milk and then on to the BX to get some birthday cards to mail out.
Hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday. Oh and before I forget, I did post the recipe for the Mashed potatoes and Carrots, though I wouldn't really call it a recipe, I mean, if you can make mashed potatoes then you can make this.
