Great Clips Does it Again

So I decided NOT to chop Laynie's hair off, just get a trim. I held two fingers up to the lady at Great Clips and said, "Just two inches." She nodded and smiled. And then....

Chopped off a lot more than two inches...I'm guessing more like five.

It's a good thing that it's just hair and that Laynie is so cute.

And has so much personality...

And hates to pose for pictures...

But someone in my house loves to have her picture taken.
And she's pretty cute too.

Birthday Bummer

As some of you may know, Laynie's third birthday was not a good one. At 2:37 a.m., she fell out of her bed and broke her collarbone. So the day started with a visit to the ER instead of opening gifts and eating cake.

Luckily I bought her a cardigan, so I didn't have to pull anything over her head. We did open up presents on the 13th, but waited until the next day to have cake.

She loves Jessie from Toy Story, so her "party" had that theme. Do you love that Jessie is knee-deep in frosting? And her hat...yeah. I had to use frosting to get it to stay on her head.

Laynie got a lot of wonderful gifts. SPOILED!

Including the Snow White dress (thanks Bri!) she insisted on wearing while we ate cake.

She spends a lot of time on the counter now. Rosy is exactly Laynie-collarbone-height. Jumping puppy+broken bones=sad little girl.
Don't mind that she's not wearing pants. Those are hard to put on one-handed.
Even though it wasn't a perfect birthday, Laynie was spoiled by lots of friends and family. Thank you all for your sweet and thoughtful gifts!

When My Kids Get My Camera...

You get stuff like this:

Laynie took all those. They were much more...polite...than the pics Gavin took. None of you really needed a close-up of his nostrils or of my throat, right?
