First Hair do's!

Corrina let us put elastics in her hair, so here we have FIRST PIG TAILS, and FIRST PONY TAIL! I am so excited because it is so darn cute!

I made a little video of one area of our house....

I have been trying to get a good video of Corrina chatting, but I she stops babbling when the camera comes out.. oh well!
And a kitchen picture for you to view...The second one is really badly lit, but you get the idea! I still need cupboard handles, but those are coming soon! I love having a place ontop of the cabinets to store fun things.. like the fondue pot and apple pot! Corrina sometimes plays at her kitchen while I am making things.. mostly she sits at the mini-island cart and eats! ha ha!

This is the 'other' side of the kitchen, not nicely unpacked yet. We are going to build a shelving unit around the desk and up the wall, and paint everything the same as the cabinets. that will take some time though! For now, this will do!

I did something so idiotic the other night... Corrina wanted to help sweep, so I thought I would give her something to sweep up. I dumped a handful of rice on the floor, which she happily played with for a bit, but before I knew it she grabbed the rice container and dumped the rest on the floor! After she flicked it all over the house with her hands and feet, kicking and giggling, we grabbed her tea set and played with it, scooping it into cups and pots! Actually, in the end it made for a rather fun activity!

Dave was home with COrrina, playing the night away. She got into a few things.. I'll let you see for yourself.
I'd like to know what she is thinking from time to time!
This is Corrina playing in her corner of the unpainted living room! This is a rather badly lit picture, but you get the idea!

Well, that is all for now. Hope you enjoyed!

Love, LOVE the pigtails. My goodness. Makes me want pigtails too, but I'm not sure it would be *quite* that cute on me.

You kitchen looks amazing! From the pics it looks about the size of half your apartment. Lots of space for cooking and baking and being family together-ing. The paint and colours look terrific. Nice work all 'round.

Looking awesome Janie. I like the trolley as an island, good look. And of course the pigtails are fabulous. How long did they last?

I enjoyed it very much! Great pics of the girl and the house. Your kitchen looks great. I love the idea of building shelves around the desk. Been thinking about something like that myself.
