Makeover Madness

Okay, so while we were at the beach for New Year's, we got bored one night and my mom (who has every type of cosmetic from every brand you've ever heard of- and some you haven't) decided it would be fun to give my sis-in-law, KK, and I makeovers after the kids were in bed.

HERE IS MY BEFORE: (So sad and pitiful)

KK's BEFORE: (Awww)

WOW!!! Here is my AFTER: (Check out "Glamour Shots" pose! I am working it!)

KK'S AFTER: Mom's Magic Makeovers worked!!

Aren't we feeling saucy!

Here is the makeup artist extraordinaire!
She is currently booked until after Oscar Season,
but you may call her assistant for a session beginning in March...;-)

New Year's in Panama City Beach

I know I am a tad late in posting our New Year's pictures, but things are so crazy busy around here. I thought things would slow down after the holidays, but that just hasn't happened yet! My brother and sister-in-law had a condo at the beach for the long weekend and invited us to go down with them and my mom. It was unseasonably warm here for winter, so we were able to let the kids go play in the sand. They had a blast! Harrison is not afraid of anything! I had to hold him from walking right out into the waves! He really keeps me on my toes!

So, these two pictures are in revers. I meant to post them the other way around, but...

Below: Harrison is really interested in the purple "balls" on Sissy's ponytail holder.
Above: He decides to make a go of getting them out using his teeth! (This did not make her happy!)

Below: Harrison is checking out the birds.

We took the kids back to play the next day too, but it was getting chilly and we told them not to get wet...

Again, these two pics are in reverse: Gracie was rubbing her wet, sandy rear end on Auntie KK (below) and Harrison thought it was funny to copy Sissy (above). He is SUCH a ham!

"What sand? I didn't eat any sand!"

"I'll just put this... Here!"

Walking down our street toward the beach.

I have some silly makeover pictures that need more explaining I'll try to post tomorrow... For now, I'll leave you in suspense!

Another Beach Video...

We had a great time for New Year's!This day we decided to be silly and all use different variations of our first or middle names. That's what the "fake names" thing is referring to in the video.

Gracie's Christmas Program at School

Gracie's preschool put on a program about the Christmas story. Gracie had the last line of the program. In case you can't tell what she's saying it's: "These men brought frankincense, myrrh, and fine gold to honor the one the new star had foretold." It was precious and we were so proud!

Merry Belated Christmas from Alabama!

I've been meaning to update, but things are so hectic with Harry working at the car lot. His hours are so late every night. I practically have the kids in bed by the time he gets home, so I crash after I get them into bed and do the dishes. I'm hoping to get better about more frequent updates in '09! I hope all all of my bloggy-buddies had a wonderful Christmas. We did down here! We went to church for the candlelight service and then our whole family went over to Olive Garden for dinner. Below are Nana and Little Man at the church service.

Gracie on Christmas morning in the jersey she told Santa she wanted. "Go Packers!"

"Say cheese!"

Merry Christmas!

Sissy is so good about helping her brother (most of the time!)

Coming soon to a blog near you: Happy New Year '09!
