Mother's Day Hair

Mother's Day was quiet.  Breakfast out at my favorite place.  A solo stroll through the local bookstore (plus book purchase) while Hubby and the kids went to the grocery store.  My second favorite ice cream after lunch.

And hair styling.
One of the things I dreamed about, when I found out I was pregnant with a girl, was braiding her hair.  I have braided Valerie's hair in the past, whenever she would let me, but on on Mother's Day she finally picked a style out of this neat book, and let me french braid her hair.  I was pretty excited!  I have only tried french braiding a couple of other times--on a doll and on my sister--a long time ago.  I feel pretty good about the results.  Now, if only my long flowing hair preferring girl will allow me to try it again.  She said she liked it...
 Then, of course, she wanted to style my hair.  Pretty, dontcha think?

  1. She looks gorgeous in the french braid and your hair is super cute (love the bow!) I had so much practice french braiding Carole and Kerrie's hair that I used to braid the whole drill teams hair before competitions.....crazy!
    We learned that if you go under the middle strand, instead of over when french braiding it turns the braid inside out and looks really cool!
