Big Changes

Lest you think I have turned into an alcoholic, I figured I better start talking about the kiddos again.

Little Meggy is growing up fast. First it was insistence on a haircut, despite Daddy's not so subtle objections ("Megan, why do you want ruin your hair by getting it cut?").

Even I have to admit, her long hair was beautiful, but look how happy she is to have it gone!

Megan had an 8 inch ponytail cut off and sent to Locks of Love, so at least the haircut was for a good cause.

In other big news, Megan got her ears pierced last Monday (the 19th). A total bait and switch as the $13 cheap studs turned into $37 jeweled flowers all just to punch a couple of silly holes in her ears! My only regret is that I didn't make her pay the difference from her piggy bank to turn it into a learning experience (don't worry, Megan's piggy bank is overflowing so she could afford it!). I guess the lesson will have to wait until she wants her belly-button pierced. ;)

As Megan points out, she is "four and three quarters" now...growing up fast!

Nothing Says Fall... a bouquet of dried corn and a magnum of wine!

Every year I grow watermelon, or at least try. The last two years I have actually been successful in getting fruit. But watermelon is like cabbage: there is really only one good way to consume either. For cabbage, it is a good fish taco. In the case of watermelon, I grow then for the sole intention of throwing back a few watermelon margaritas. Oh boy, do they go down easy!

Miss Matching

Megan may have impressive academic skills, but her fashion skills are certainly lacking!
