What was I thinking????

You know the saying "never mess with a good thing"? Or how about "don't try this at home". Or even the one "your husband can't do everything"
I didn't listen to this advice! I was looking at my hair on Friday thinking that my highlights have grown out a little. My mother-in-law is the one that does my highlights for me. She's licensed and she's great at it. I have all the colors and supplies here at the house for when she comes to visit. Well, my husband insisted if I have all the supplies here, then he could do it for me. I stupidly said "ok" and called my mother-in-law to get the right ratios to mix the color. She warned me it wasn't a good idea but once again I didn't take the advice. The idea was to do a few streaks of blonde and a few red.
Here's what happened:

Ya, that's not the lighting, it turned orange! The whole top of my head was orange! Sidney whispered to Kenzie, "I don't want mom to go to the basketball game tomorrow because everyone will think she smokes". Too funny.
So after emailing that pic to my mother-in-law she advized me of what color I needed to go buy to cover up this mess.
Here's how I look now:
Not bad but not good either.

And here's what I looked like 5 days before this fiasco:

A big thanks to my mother-in-law, Sheila and to L'Oreal Preference color Ash Blonde 7A for covering up my problem, though I shouldn't have gotten into such a mess in the first place.

Lesson Learned!

Here's a LO I did from a Pagemap sketch. The theme is something sweet. So naturally I chose my sweet little Parker. (Yes all my kids are sweet but he's the cuddliest).

Christmas 2008

I know you are all wondering where the heck we are. Sorry. Life was really crazy with the move and all the new changes. We like our new town, Taylor. Everyone is really nice. And its so nice to have Josh home each night. The girls like their schools and their teachers are great. This is the first time the girls went to different schools. Sidney goes to Taylor Elem (grades K-3). Kenzie goes to Taylor Intermediate (grades 4-6). But they still ride the same bus. Parker has his interview for preschool next Friday and we are crossing our fingers!
We spent Christmas in Utah this year. The kids and i got to stay for 10 days while Josh had to back to work for a few days. This was one of my best trips home yet. We stayed busy visiting family, going to the movies, girls night, date night, play dates, sledding, shopping, and much more. Here are some highlights:

Visiting Family:

Grandma Chidester

Of course Josh and Jamison had to jam their guitars a little

My oldest brother, Dave's birthday. Can we say "over the hill"?


And of course we were able to enjoy all of that wonderful Utah snow

There is so much more but my computer is so slow right now. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and happy new year!
