This is a very "unlike me" type of thing to blog ~ I'm not good at remembering first haircuts, first tooth, or documenting any of them. But Justin's first haircut was out of necessity ~ his big sister somehow managed to drop her gum out of her mouth and into his hair, while Mommy wasn't home. So instead of taking out some olive oil and working it out, Daddy cut out a big chunk of hair from the back of little man's head. And even though giving a haircut to a squirmy one-year old was not high on my list of things I wanted to do today ~ it went not too bad, thanks to a dessert to distract him and a bath afterwards. It wasn't too sad saying goodbye to his curls; and now that it's done, I kinda wish I'd done it before family pictures this morning.

We are thoroughly enjoying the "change of the Seasons" around here. More of a routine, the Summer clothes are officially out of the closets, it's still sunny enough to play in the yard most days, and the furnace has even kicked in a few times in our cozy home. Chantel celebrated her 6th birthday last week with a shopping trip with Oma, and a couple gifts from us. She was spoiled as they always are, and is very excited about her upcoming double birthday party with a school friend of hers. Alyssa also had her very first fieldtrip last week ~ to a pumpkin patch ~ which was a lot of fun.
