Book review

I would like to say a word about a inspiring book that I read a while back.   The name of the book is Hitchhikers by Bernard Poduska

The true story of one man's amazing journey from a homeless and hopeless childhood to a life of conversion and faith.

The story starts in the spring of 1948 when Bernard Poduska and his family was evicted from their home in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Bernard was eight year old at the time, it tells of his family hitchhiking across the country trying to find a place to call home.  It tell of the hard times, and the suffering they went through.  It also tell of how Bernard, being an atheist, finds God.  This is a quote from the book.  " you will never know what's on down the road until you've made the journey; be grateful for any rides others may give you along the way, and whatever your destination, the journey is everything-- make the most of it."

I enjoyed this book, it is very different than the run-of-the-mill books.  I incourage everyone to give it a try.

Little girl Hairstyle tutorial #7 Knot hair do

This is one of my favorite hair styles I have done on C so far.  I just love all the different textures, with the braids,  and the knots, and the poofy ponytail in the back.  Don't worry I know it looks complicated, but if you follow the steps you will see it is really easy!
Part the hair across the front of the head, like in the picture to the left. Then dutch braid, the hair down to the ear.
then make a part from the tip of the left ear to the tip of the right ear  and make 5 pony tails with the remaining hair on top of head up to the part you just made. Tuck the tail of the dutch braid into your first pony tail.
Tie each ponytail into a knot. Demonstrated in the picture on the left. Once all the ponytails have been tied into knots. take the tails, and pull them into a single ponytail at the back of the head.

Backcomb the ponytail Place bobby pins underneath the  ponytail to make it stand up a little.



Roll the remaining hair up to meet the ponytail and secure with bobby pins. ( …

This style is simple, and easy. Perfect for those little toddlers, who wont hold still long. Plus it gets the hair out of their eyes, which is always a plus. The great thing is this style is for everyone! I have done my hair like this as well. It is so quick, but it looks super nice.
Part hair on the side of head.

Braid from forehead towards the back of head and secure. I use elastic bands in my girls hair, and bobby pins in my own.

Curl the rest of hair with a curling iron.

Finish with a cute bow.

Cute easy skirt tutorial!

Is it just my girls, that really LOVE skirts? Most days my two year old, C. E , refuses to wear anything that isn't either a skirt or a dress. Lucky for her I am constantly making skirts and dresses. :) I haven't even purchased her any pants for a year. ( well I did purchase one pair, but it had a skirt attached so it doesn't count.) Each day after I get C. E dressed, ( in either a skirt or a dress) she always says "I wear dress lite (like) a pincess (princess)."  It always makes me giggle a little. So this is my latest skirt. It is inspired by that pre shirred fabric you can get at any fabric store. they didn't have any made from corduroy  though, so I decided to make my own. If you can sew a straight line, then you can make this skirt! It is the easiest skirt I have ever made, and I have made A LOT of skirts,  It is made with grey corduroy, so it will hold up well, and the interchangeable sash will ensure it will go with anything.  C loves wearing this skir…
