Wesley's first and second hair cut

I have been putting off the inevitable, Wesley's first hair cut. Not knowing if he is my last child or not, I have tried to delay a lot of things with Wes and cutting off his precious curls has been a major one. I have trimmed his hair a couple of times but never truly cut them off. I decided to bite the bullet and get him a real cut a couple of weeks ago. His hair had gotten long and shaggy and really needed a real cut. Of course, I regretted it after the fact but thankfully the curls are coming back already. He did such a fabulous job that I was really in shock. He crawled up in the seat and sat pretty much still the entire time. He didn't cry or squirm. That boy surprises me often! Here are some pics of my big boy!

Well this morning, I was getting ready for church and Wes came into the bathroom. I walked out to get something and came back maybe a minute later and came in to find Wesley with sharp hair cutting scissors in hand and hair covering his fleece pajamas. Yes, my 2 year old cut his own hair. It was all at the top and he did leave a bald spot but thankfully it isn't that noticeable and the bald spot can be covered easily. So, little Wes gave himself his 2nd hair cut. I tried to get some pics but it's hard to get photos of a blond 2 year old head!!! 

Some short pieces and part of the bald spot

Nice big bald spt with super short top!

Oh, this boy! What am I ever gonna do with him?

Thanksgiving 2010

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year. My dad's two sisters and some of their family came up to my parent's house this year. We really did have a great day. The weather was absolutely perfect. The food was superb. We had some live music of guitars, mandolin, and vocals. It was just all around a fantastic day. The kids had a ball and all the grown ups enjoyed watching and sometimes joining in. It's so easy to forget to count our multitude of blessings in our day to day lives. I really love taking the month of November to think on and be thankful of all our blessings.

Max was finally able to decorate a cake all by himself
