Hairstyles, Friends, A Smoothie Recipe and Pictures

I have been practicing different hairstyles on  Emma.
She is such a trooper and sits still pretty well for me.  I think it has helped that I have brushed her hair since she came home to us and she sits in church with us.  It's been a lot of work getting her through church service but it seems to be getting easier.   There is another mama in church who is training her child to sit with them during service.  Last week her almost two year old was getting pretty fussy.  I just told her to hang in there!  It will pay off.  ;)

French Twists

Emma and I went shopping last week with a friend and her little boy.   We are neighbors so I'm sure these two will have lots of play time together.

I'm loving smoothies right now.  I've been making pineapple/mango smoothies.  What better way is there to use up a box of yummy mangos!

I never measure my ingredients...just dump them in together and mix.  :)

Here are just a few recent pictures of sweet Emma for your entertainment.  :)

Coloring On A Plate

I found this idea on Pinterest.  
I find a lot of ideas there.
Put a white plate in the microwave until it gets warm to color on.

I thought it was so cool.

Note to self:  When you want to put the plate in for 2 minutes don't push 20 minutes by accident....the plate will break!  ha!

Emma loves coloring!

Night Stands

Jame's latest project.... night stands for our bedroom.  The ones we had were looking oh so sad and he couldn't stand them anymore.  :)  
He did a great job on designing and building these.
I love them.
