Kali's 1st haircut

Getting her hair cut!!!

1st snip!

Brushing it out. Ronnie told her to look at him and she said "no I have to look down"
Yes I know that it was past time to trim her hair, but I just could not bring myself to cut it. Last night I trim it. She was so excited about getting a haircut. She giggled the whole time. Ronnie took pictures for us. She told me that she need that little chair and a caper thing. I guess she has seen me do it enough times she thought she knew it all.
She was such a big girl.

Update on Gage

He is doing fine. Just has an ugly eye. He could not open it Sunday, but today is better. I carried him to see Dr. Smith this morning and he dilated his eye and did the optimap. Everything is fine and can you believe it, but not even blood shot. He said that the bone took the blow not the eye. He is out of school for the day because they dilated his eye. He is a happy camper.

Gage and Baseball

Gage had his first game of the season today with the DirtBags. He and Drew were warming up and Gage didn't have his glove on good yet, but Drew thought he did and threw the ball. The ball hit Gage right above the left eye brow. It looked bad, but it only got worse.

This is the goose egg that came up. This photo was taken after we got home.

OH MY GOSH! My baby's eye. Believe it or not, Gage played with his eye like this. Maybe not quite this big. He played catcher, left field and pitched. I was proud of him being a trooper.

Just another shot of his eye. I can only image what it will look like in the morning. Poor Drew felt so bad. It was an accident. Gage still loves baseball. I told him that he played really good with one eye, so I expect it at least that well or better with 2 good eyes. LOL

Thought you would like to know. . .

You never know who will be a blessing in your life. In February, my cousin, Shannon, who lives in Virginia was in because her mother passed away. While she was in, she came by my shop while I was working on Julie Brooks' mom and sister. Julie has been such a blessing to me and to Shannon. Check out her blog - the Hawkins. I am so thankful to have many friends that are blessings to me. Julie is such a caring, inspirational person and a hoot to be around. Thanks Julie!

Minus 6

Last week I joined Weight Watchers. Ronnie and I doing it together. It has been a funny first week. We laughed together about things from "How MANY points is that" to Ronnie stating he didn't have enough points (p.s. he gets 13 more than I do - that is a whole meal) to Ronnie's steak at Applebees. It was only 4 oz. It would fit in my palm. I have never seen him eat a steak that small. It tasted good. He was satisfied when we left.

Last night was SCALE time. I had set a goal for my first week. I really wanted to lose 5 pounds. I guess I thought I was on the Biggest Loser and could pull big numbers. HA Well I weighed in and I lost 6 pounds. I almost shouted right there in the weigh in room. I know that I can't do that every week, but it sure felt good to loose that amount my first week. Ronnie also lost 6 pounds. I am so proud of us.

Jabber Jabber

Can't believe that it is already March.

We had a full month in Feb. My kids are keeping us busy. My mom's sister, Linda, passed away and got to see Shannon, Mike, Kohly and Kessa again.

On to March, Gage is suppose to play baseball this weekend. Our tournaments are gearing up. We are excited. The DirtBags are looking good. I am ready to see what they do in a game.

Kali is just Kali. She is growing up way to fast. She is about to give her daddy a heart attack. Her new thing is, she wants to wear the top part of her swimsuit under her clothes, because she needs a bra. I thought Ronnie was going to die when she told him that.

I will try to blog better than I have been. I have been busy, but nothing to blog about.
