Picture From the Camera


Laken received a set of Hot Curlers for Christmas so we played "Beauty Salon" and did her hair.  It turned out really cute!  She's as bad as her big sister at keeping her eyes open when the camera flashes!

Bible Verse/Devotional



  1. I love the way this post is written. I find that there are days that I simply have so many things or so few things to say that I really don't find the way to get them here. This is a neat one!

  2. Love the photo : ) Kudos on your good reads challenge. so far I'm doing good. but its January, now on my reviews not so good, I have yet to transfer from paper to sites. Have a great day!

  3. Your menu looks yummy for this week! Love the crochet square!! Have a great week!!

  4. Your menus look great this week! Have a blessed week ahead! <3

  5. I didn't know hot rollers still existed. I had a couple of sets years ago. I love your menu. It gives me ideas. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  6. Our weather outside is, in a word, Blech. I'd like something new! Seriously, this is one of my favorite passages. And it reminds me every day is a new creation.

  7. Cute roller photo. I like your choice of Bible verse.

  8. I've been doing a Good reads challenge as well. It sure inspires me to read when it starts telling me I'm behind (though I think I'm also ahead of it for now as well). Hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

  9. What a joyful post! The Bible offers much fuel for Sparks. Thank you!
    Sparks: 16
    Annie at ~McGuffy's Reader~

  10. I agree with Annie! And it seems you're an omnivore like me. Have a blessed day!

  11. I agree with Annie too. This is indeed a joyful post.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

  12. I'm running so late this week visiting everyone. I sure hope you had a GREAT week!

  13. What a lovely snapshot of your life and of your daughter! :-)
