A first for Zoey

Zoey's hair is pretty...unique. There are plenty of girls with curly hair, but I've never known anyone who went from this


To this

To this

To this
In about 2 years.

So really, we've been enjoying the curls knowing that anything could happen next.

This year alone she's sported her traditional look:



And we've even started a little French braiding fun:

Cousin Audrey even got in on the fun!

But Zoey has always begged me to pleeeeeeeeeeeeease straighten her hair.  I tend to straighten my hair each morning, so it makes sense. I refuse to use a flat iron on her, primarily because mine has damaged my hair even on a low setting. There is NO way I would do that to her hair!

This evening I took advantage of Trav being home to actually blow out her hair. Now, it's a terrible job of drying her hair, but it produced what she wanted. Plus I think she realized how long and painful it can be, so I doubt she'll be asking again anytime soon.

I could be wrong. Girls will do anything for the sake of beauty!

Walter wasn't too impressed with the new Zoey:


He even walked off. Apparently he was that unimpressed.

But Zoey?

She loved showing it off. For today, I'll her. However, tomorrow we'll go back to the curls!

Ode to the cat

Trav informed me yesterday that I don't have enough photos of Walter up. So, in response, I'm posting a hoard of them. All at once. Prepare yourselves.

First Day of First Grade

Good grief. When did Jack grow up?

Last year, we had a Kindergartner:

Now? It's first grade:

We had quite the first day of school crowd:

When the time came to send Jack off to class, he was actually ready to take photos:


Here's to a great first grade year, Jack!

Mourning stinks

Mourning is tough business. No one expects a parent to die early, nor so unexpectedly. Needless to say, it's been pretty much hectic here. As a result, we opted to spend some time doing some things for "us." In this case, it was taking pictures for a Broncos contest.

He didn't win, but I figured I would show them off anyway:
