Emily's Thoughtful Gift


I don't know where Emily found flowers when we just barely got rid of the snow, but when I came home on Thursday, she had this little card and vase by my night stand. She's collected flowers for bouquets ever since she was tiny. Way to get rid of those dandelions!

Barry's Artwork

Barry and I are having a hard time figuring out colors for our master bedroom and bath. The color we have now had this great Benjamin Moore color name: Inner Calm. I liked it on the chip. On the wall, though, it's more like Inner Prison Gray.

I tried a color on the wall which was way purple. As he started to paint it gray again, Barry added his own artistic touches: "Led Zeppelin." Can you believe Barry is a closet hard rocker?

Emily's Jewelry


I think this is a cute photo of Emily. Her hair is the longest she's ever had it, and it's actually getting a little easier to deal with. She still gets that tangle in the back, but she's really learning to take good care of her hair. I guess it's part of growing up, and wow--she looks so grown up in this photo!
She's modeling the bead jewelry, necklace and bracelet, she made herself.

Matt's Mask

Matt made this mask (and the note -- too small to read) for me. For someone who claims he isn't artistic, I think it's pretty amazing!

Megan's New Haircut


Megan has been begging for a haircut for months. I didn't take her too seriously at first, because last year she was begging me to let her hair get down to her waist. It was on its way there, halfway down her back or more.
Next haircut, she still wanted it shorter. I noticed the ends were baby-fine and not looking all that great. And it's her hair. Although I asked she keep it long enough to pull back (which will help when she has her ballet recital next month) we decided to let her get it cut. Megan loves it!
