New Haircuts

I love that my sister, Cherie, is a cosmetologist :D
She was at my house because of hurricane Gustav and the girls needed at least a trim, so, Cherie lovingly complied :D
I asked Calista why she wasn't smiling for the pics and she was like, "Well, you know how when people lose weight and they look all sad in their 'before' pics... that's what I'm doing."

And now her happy 'after' pictures... lol
Calista actually wanted Cherie to cut it short... like a bob or something. Jeremy compromised and said she could cut it shorter, but not shorter than her shoulders.
I was okay with her cutting it because she hates brushing or fixing her hair. Hopefully, it won't take much to get her to brush it now...
Bare in mind that no styling tools or products were used...
Their haircuts look much cuter now that they hair got used to its new look :D
Ursula had decided to chop the sides of her hair the day before school started... so, Cherie's just evening it out and cutting bangs for her.
Ursula loves her hair... as does Calista.

First Day/Week of School 2008

It was Ursula's first day of Kindergarten and Calista's first week.

Ursula picked out the headband and just had to wear it... but, didn't want me to tie it in the back... just wear the ribbon fall on her shoulders :)

Calista's in 4th grade this year... tons of books...

Wyatt had to get in the picture too... 'cheese me'... lol He's eating his breakfast... a pb&j sandwich. I didn't wake him up until right before we had to leave.
Ursula in her own desk :D The kids were asked if they could find their desks... she, of course, found hers :)

Calista after coming home from school... same day :D
I feel bad because I forgot to bring my camera the first day of school for her this year!!! I had to bring both girls... Ursula had an hour of testing... and I guess I just was so occupied with making sure we had all their supplies together that bringing a camera just slipped my mind!

Ursula Cut Her Hair

She looked in the mirror in her room and methodically cut her hair how she wanted it to look.
She couldn't do the back, so, Jeremy fixed it for her.

Ursula's First Loose Teeth

Excuse her dirty hands... lol The kids are always playing outside.
Yes, she lost 2 teeth at once!
Her dad helped them out... because her big teeth were already out behind them!!!

She thanked her dad the next day for pulling her teeth out :)

More Celebrity-Look-A-Likes



Calista on March 21st, 2008

I was in a picture taking mood:D
Ursula declared that she didn't want to take any... so, I didn't take any of her... well, I took one of her... not so great... she was squinting because of the sun and had her arms covering most or half of her face.

Anyways... here's my photogenic child, Calista :)
I enjoy taking her pictures because she usually listens. She'll hold her head where I put it or where I tell her to put it/look.
Cropped and in Sepia of above picture:

Notice the band-aid on her forehead? yeah... She busted her head coming the wrong way down off of the bunk bed.

Cropped and in black & white of above pic:

And just think... how much better pictures I can take with a working camera... :D
Yes, I'm still using the one with no flash :((
So, all outside pictures and no inside candid ones... or sweet, sleeping ones...
