Get my color worked on a couple of times a year. 
I get a partial color weave is all with a lighter shade of blonde, a darker shade of blonde and my own grey in between like a third color. My aim is to look a little more blonde and a little less grey.  For my kids who have an opinion, I got 3 inches off the bottom a a little shaping done.
Works for me.

Random Post of my Dad and I

I remember this day, I was about 5 years old and My Dad and my Grandpa (not sure who else) went out to the dump to shoot the guns.
(Dumps were so very different back then, at least in our locale.)
I liked to hunt for treasures.
My dad was an amateur photographer and I'm quite sure having constant B & W photos around of things we had done helped keep my memory of childhood events sharp.  So glad he did that.
BTW, he developed his own film and printed his own pictures.
Yes, we had a makeshift 'darkroom'.
Then I married a professional photographer who supported our family well.
Only drawback was having the business based from our home ...
(read: absolutely no privacy, or boundaries)
but like me
I think the kids remember early child events perhaps better because of all the photographs.
Dad's been gone since 1996.
18 years has sure gone by alarmingly quickly!

Random Post of Old Friends

I tried to make this bigger but it only gets super blurry.
Can't have that!

These are the Davis boys.  Back in the day...we all lived in Coeur d'Alene, and Cathy (their mom) and I were going through the child bearing years together...We ended up with 6 boys 1 girl, Cathy and Jim had 10 boys, and great GREAT kids they are!
One summer several families here took in Asian kids for a summer program, and one of the girls that stayed with a mutual friend used to ask to go to "10 boy house". 
the 10 boy house.

February to Phoenix

Cory's family:  Kaylynn and Cory, Owen and Emily standing, and Eliza in Cory's arms.

 We went to Phoenix in February, to see Cory's family, been close to two years.  Way to long!  Emily was being baptized ~~ It's great to be eight!  Poppy teaches all the grandkids to make the peace sign and say "Peace Baby"!  Very fun trip.  So glad we could go!

Greyson's Birthday

Greyson had a birthday party at JAMS with Milo and a Parker boy.  Sorry, can't remember his first name.  They each had a costume and party favors and all the frozen yogurt they could eat!!  Was so much fun!
Of course Nana and Poppy were there along with mom and dad and Bill Parker, Sage, Gabe, Harley and Uncle Kelly.
